Solar motion light sensor bypass

Hey Guys,

I bought and installed these lights in my back yard:

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

When the light turns on first its really dim, but when you walk by it will illuminate more due to the motion sensor kicking in. I wanted to see if there is a way to bypass this so that when it turns on it turns on at its brightest. Here are some pictures to possibly help with the answers.

Welcome to the forums.

You need some reverse engineering done. What you want to do may be able to be done but it would need to be done by someone with tech experience there with a meter.

With the small battery pack that unit has..... you wouldn't get very much lighting time if it came on full brightness at sundown.

If by running it full it wouldn't last than i should either get another unit or just keep them running low. Currently i have only 1 of the 4 installed. I will install them all and see how much light it gives off. It might be enough. Oh and i'm going to paint some of the parts to match my gazebo.

Thanks for info. Good to be here, since i will be doing a lot of diy projects on my spare time.
