A motion light with Dual Brite will typically have a separate selector dial labeled "Dual Brite", with the selection choices of: Off, 3 hours, 6 hours, Until Dawn.
- Off: The Dual Brite feature is off, with no effect
- 3 Hours: The Light will come on in a half-bright mode for 3 hours after dusk
- 6 Hours: The Light will come on in a half-bright mode for 6 hours after dusk
- Until Dawn: The Light will stay on in a half-bright mode from dusk until dawn.
The lower light setting saves on electricity, while providing added convenience and security to your motion light.
We have all motion lights at our house set to the 3 Hour setting. This gives low-level light around the house at dusk, which is especially handy when it gets dark earlier in the evening. This gives us comfort of having an automatic light on (in low light mode) in early evening, knowing that the light will go off automatically after the set period of time. I highly recommend the Dual Brite function for any motion light you choose.
