At first I wasn't sure about getting a single head flood light, because my existing fixture has two heads. However, this All-Pro LED dusk-to-dawn outdoor light fixture produces a generous amount of light, so even though I can't cover the same area as I could with a two head fixture, it is still sufficient for my needs.
I was replacing an existing fixture, so I already had the correct junction box -- the instructions indicate you will need a recessed mounted standard junction box, round or octagonal, at least 1.5" in depth. Instructions also recommend installing at least 10 feet above the ground and away from any windows, white surfaces or water which could reflect light onto the sensor. You will also need weatherproof silicone caulk.
The picture and written instructions were easy to decipher, but since this was only my third time installing any type of electrical fixture, there were a few trial and error moments for me (be sure the photo sensor is at the bottom, not pointed towards the top!).
This fixture has a nice charcoal grey finish on sturdy metal and I am encouraged that the finish will stand up to Florida air which has a tendency to eat away at metal surfaces. The photo on the box of the light fixture makes it appear there is a frosted cover on the light, but in fact the light has a clear glass cover with white metal inside and four tiny LED bulbs (see picture).
I am able to adjust the light head both up/down and left/right using the two knobs on the fixture which loosen easily yet tighten securely (see picture). The instructions have a helpful Troubleshooting section in case the light doesn't come on or turn off as it should.
The light has 35,000 hours of life - I use it 12 hours each night, so in theory it should last me 8 years. The product comes with a 3-year warranty, and warranty service requires a receipt showing date of purchase and applies to the product only (installation labor charges not included). I can't find anything in the directions concerning bulb replacement, so it's my sense that once the bulbs wear out, the entire fixture will need to be replaced? However, there are screws on the light faceplate which would allow you to get to the bulbs, so perhaps they could be changed out if you could find these exact bulbs.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Palaranda Love the aluminum case.
Replacing my old 2 year-old halogen lamp with this ALL-PRO, unit is far better and more cost effective than any unit I have tried.
On the box it states it uses 20.8W. The one I took off the wall used 150W and yet the 20W from the All-pro is not only brighter with sharper edges in the shadows, it uses up to eight times less power than the halogen. LED's is certainly the way forward both for cost and reliability, not forgetting being environment friendly.
The tough aluminum casing is both pleasing to the eye and fixes to the surface of the wall/eave easily.
The supplied cover plate was not needed as I connected it to a preexisting junction box.
As soon as it was active, it was on full power and it lit up the 40 feet I had angled for flooding the area with light. I would have liked it to switch on a little sooner rather than total darkness. Having said that I am going to Home Depot to buy some more and will replace my older style outside lights. They are well worth the cost.
Applying a little silicone grease to the gasket, the seal is good and waterproof.
Added photo is right out of the box.

This light makes for a great grow light because of its wide versatility so I use it as nice grow light for rose of sharon seedlings The dusk to dawn feature enables to add light like today it was low dark Gray clouds so it turned on and I use it as a way to extend the day light So I give it a great alternative to the DIY grrernhouse grow light

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Shagnasty Nice bright good looking little light.
This is one bright little light.
I believe you could use this as landing light on a small airplane.
Ok, it's not that bright, but it's the brightest entry light I've ever installed on the house. But than again, I'm used to a light with a yellow 40W bulb.
The light came with all the hardware you need to install it.
It was a little tricky to install, but manageable.
It's a good looking little light. Definitely improvement to looks of the outside house. The wife even likes it!
Anyhow, I'm very glad to have this unit.

for as small as this light is, i must admit, it is very impressive. I actually purchased another of this identical one and also several of the motion style of this brand. I cant believe my energy savings. My energy has not budge much with these and the are brighter that incandescent bulbs, only with savings tho. My neighbor noticed them and was impressed as well. Al together i have about 6 of these.

It's a light fixture, easy enough to install. I would have bought it locally but couldn't find it in store. But, delivery was quick.
