nice looking sensor lights at least 60W?

Do you have any ceiling lights to suggest that turn on only after dark and when they sense movement? I'm talking about inside my home- like inside the front door, or on a stairwell etc so I want it to look nice, not like a flood light.
I'd be nice to not have to fumble for switches.

I have found a nice $10 GE LED night light that has a nicely working sensor and really does pic up motion 20 ft away but it's .5 Watts and not pretty.

This can be done with any fixture you like by using a sensor on the ceiling or wall that communicates with a special switch or dimmer. See the link for an example.

Leviton also sells motion sensor light switches with timers.

Some of the switches require a neutral in the switch box, other do not.

Check you switch box before purchasing.
If there are black and white wires going only to the switch you have a switch loop and NO neutral.
