The Fox Lights uses nine LED bulbs and uses light sensors to trigger the flashing in conjunction with sunrise and sunset.

Fox Lights livestock protection are recommended to be placed around camp sits on star posts for best concentration and set upon crest of hills to provide large areas of protection. Windmill Supplies recommends 4 lights per 100 sheep and 6 lights for 200 sheep. For free range poultry, Fox Lights are best installed near roosting pens or sleeping areas.
