Weekend Project: How to Install a Garage Motion Light


Here in Utah, autumn is in full swing with crisp air, crunchy leaves, and shorter hours of daylight. With the sun setting at about 6:30 every night, it’s important to keep your home safe and secure, and one of the best ways to do this is installing a floodlight on your garage. Lights like these will automatically turn on when they sense motion, keeping strangers away from your home.

Motion activated lights are probably cheaper than you might think. At Lowe’s, they range from as low as $13.00 to $130.00. You can very likely find one that’s in your price range and can sense motion in the area you desire.

As for installing one yourself? Usually, these lights come with pretty good directions for installation. But here’s a very detailed how-to guide on how to install garage floodlights from This Old House. If your project still seems too complicated to handle, you can always submit a service request to have one of our professionals quickly install it for you.
