Battery Powered Hallway Light with a Built in Motion and Light Sensor and adjustable light timer
I bought this light when I first bought my house, sometime in early 2014. At the time, I wanted a way to light up the basement when I did laundry or got home from work. The light switch for my basement is not directly next to the door and there are multiple lights and switches. I hate basements and poor lighting so this was kind of a double whammy for me.
Before I knew about home automation, I discovered the Ivation 6. It works well enough and the batteries in it are still going strong but it works like a night light and is not incredibly bright. The motion sensors work very very well considering how small the product is and how far away I was when needing it to sense me. I'm writing this review nearly a year after I purchased the product (guessing $15?), so I do not remember how much it originally cost me but I'd happily send someone mine for $3+ shipping. My recommendation is to pay the $300 to setup a DIY home automation system. Use Philips Hues, Levitron, or Wink to automate all your lights. If you need a stand alone bathroom light or kids room night light, this is probably great for that. If you want to buy this on Amazon, click here.
Please note, I was not paid to write this review. Ivation is not one of my blog sponsors. However, the links to Amazon do give me a few pennies, but only if you make a purchase.
The IVA-RLL6 identifies day and night automatically and will only illuminate at night, when movement is detected and Turns off automatically after 10 seconds if no motion is detected.
Choose between the light staying illuminated for 30 or 60 seconds
The night light instantly turns on when it detects motion, and can detect motion from as far as 15 feet away with 180 degrees of vision.
The 6 bright LED never needs replacing it's so efficient that you will get more than 2,400 activation's on one set of batteries.

No more fumbling in the dark. Get the right amount of light for the right amount of time--all in an attractive sleek-looking design that's sure to blend in nicely with surrounding decor. The IVA-RLL6 requires no wiring as it runs on three 'AA' batteries (not included), since it doesn't require an outlet, you can install it just about anywhere. It includes a useful adhesive tape and mounting screws, for two different mounting options. This light also has an option to keep it illuminated for 30 seconds or 60 seconds, so it can be adjusted for your best use and value. This LED nightlight is a smart choice to use in hallways, stairways, steps, bathrooms, bedrooms, closets, garages, attics and basements. It illuminates the hallway between the bedroom and bathroom, or the hallway to the kitchen for that late-night snack. This unit features a convenient motion-sensing function, which means it turns on automatically when it detects motion and stays on as long as detects motion , and automatically shuts off 30 or 60 seconds after no motion is detected. It can also be used without the auto sensor so that the lamp is always on, and there is no auto-sensing. Fast, Easy Installation without Cords or Wires The Sensor Light mounts anywhere quickly and easily without wires or plugs. Installation is as simple as loading 3 'AA' batteries. It includes a mounting hook that can easily be mounted with the included adhesive tape and can also be mounted with the included screws, so that the LED light can easily be mounted anywhere. Motion Sensor Detects Movement Up to 15 Feet Away The Sensor Light has a built-in motion sensor that detects movement from up to 15 feet away, and it efficiently turns the light on and off depending on the light conditions. You can also remove the light from the mounting plate to use as an emergency flashlight.
