Either side of the front doors I had a pair of traditional looking lanterns. Not for the amount of light they gave out but for their effect. Each contained an artificial candle illuminated by flickering LEDs. The batteries were solar charged. After surviving quite a few storms and torrential downpours they were becoming erratic in their performance.
A grotty video grab:
Recently I spotted a new type. A cylinder containing several LEDs which give a more realistic flickering flame effect. These are also solar charged and have more modern higher capacity batteries.
As one of my security cameras caught much of the action of me installing them I decided to make a video. That took more effort than I anticipated as there are 13 short video captures. Not too much of a problem except the camera is 16:9. When the videos were copied from the recorder they ended up the wrong shape and iMovie refused to recognise them. Eventually I found MovieMator Pro would not only load the files but also allowed me to restore them to 16:9 and adjust the speed to 10x. Each clip had to be altered individually.
The resulting movie file was saved and loaded in iMovie where I added a sound track and title.
Of course most of the time the four legged supervisor kept an eye on what I was doing.
