New outdoor light fixtures?


I am looking to replace my outside light fixtures, two next to the garage door, and one by the front door. Are there light fixtures that can be set to automatically turn on at dusk and off at dawn? I am looking for the lights to be on for security but they don't need to be on all day. What's my best option?

Yes. I have a front porch light that has a setting for "Accent" and "Security". Set to "Accent", the light will stay on indefinitely, such as at Halloween. Set to "Security", it comes on with motion and will stay on for the amount of time that is pre-programed by me and then go off. It also has a sensitivity setting. It can be set to come on when motion is at certain distances from it.

This light is decorative and could be used in either instance that you mention. Here is a link that shows some examples of what I am talking about:
