You can buy very simple kits when you want to assemble an outdoor security flood light at home. A kit like this will cost you no more than $20. However this is a very simple kit that will not have any of the features that a more expensive landscape lighting fixtures might have.

You have to be careful however when choosing a system with a motion sensor as some of the less sensitive flood lights can be tripped by wind and rain. Be sure to check that the light system you are buying is able to differentiate to movements like this and genuine movement such as a person walking in front of the light.
