At first, like Bionic floodlights, security lights are also used to protect your home security and property safety at night as well as brighten your house. As outdoor lighting fixtures, both of them are waterproof and can be against bad weather such as rain and snow. Multiple-angle adjustable heads allow them to cover a wider area.

Next, let’s talk about the differences.

The first difference is brightness. According to the form above, you can find that the LEPOWER LED flood light is 1600lm and the one from Bell+Howell is 500lm, which indicates that the former is brighter than the latter. Therefore, if you want to light up your yard, the Bionic floodlight is enough, but if you want to swim or BBQ party at night, maybe the security light can provide a clearer view for you.

Second, the Bionic flood light has a special mode, strobe mode, which can scare away intruders. The light will fast and continuously flicker when intruders get into its detection angle and then turn off after the motion stops. But this outdoor security light can be triggered and turned on for 10s-120s if any motion is detected. In this respect, maybe a Bionic floodlight is better for someone who lives in a place with less population.

Third, the maximum sensing distance of solar-powered flood light from LEPOWER and Bell+Howel is respectively 25ft and 72ft. So we can say LEPOWER security light is more sensitive and better safeguard your home. If your house with a big yard, maybe LEPOWER is your optimum choice.

Finally, except installed under the eave or on the wall, the Bionic security light can be installed on a stake in the ground, making your way back home more bright and offering more installation choices to you. But the LEPOWER flood light comes with a 15ft cable that can connect the light and the solar panel, a more flexible and user-friendly design to meet your installation needs.

Anyway, you can choose the security lights based on your lighting needs. What is suitable for your needs is the best.
