Spanish term or phrase: célula de paso
Si es una exhibición grande se pueden colocar cédulas de paso. The idea is to save on energy costs. I think this refers to those lights that come on e.g. in a garden at night when someone walks into the garden. Can't remember what they're called.

If you are correct, Jean, these are then "motion lights" that is, they come on when someone or something moves around them...
