    The Sunflower is the first heliostat created for residential use, designed to allow homeowners to focus the sun into a gloomy room on onto a solar panel.
    The Sunflower uses a solar powered microprocessor, motion servos and sun sensors to track the sun and reflect its light to a location selected by the user. It can redirect up to 50,000 lumens of sunlight and can be installed on an existing post or optional PVC stand.
    Beyond feeding solar panels and dark rooms, other applications include directing the sun to gardens, damp woodpile and clotheslines, or icy sidewalks and roofs.
