Motion lights for the house?

I'm looking into getting 2 or 3 battery powered motion lights for around the house. Anybody know of any decent ones that aren't too expenisve. Do the LED ones work better? I found this one http://www.smarthome.com/740126/Moti...D-Light/p.aspx and it seems like a good deal...

Why battery powered lights? HD and Lowes have several options. If you want to light up a big area, flood lights are the way to go. If you want it concentrated, spot lights.

They've done studies you know.... 60% of the time, it works every time

They have some at CostCo for 25 dollars that work pretty well.

I'm not scared of the electrical work I just don't need big flood lights. I just want to light up a few spots around the house. Nothing too serious. I'll check at Lowe's. I guess it would be better to go with electrical or solar. I'd be changing batteries a lot probably.

Yeah, wind blows, a tree moves, lights turn on. Cat walks across yard, lights turn on...

I have recently removed my old ceiling with the help of a popcorn ceiling removal services and installed a new concrete one. I am planning on installing motion lights. How much would they cost?
