Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by paulg Poor Quality / Timer Failed in less than 6 months
Timer completely stopped working in less than 6 months. It is supposed to have a lifetime warranty. Home Depot was no help. They refused to replace it. The manufacturer Brinks doesn't answer their phone and doesn't return messages. Bad product quality and worse customer service from both Home Depot and Brinks.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Kevin1948 Not very consistent but OK
I had one of these motion sensors before, and I found it to be very good. This one doesn't seem to sense the motion nearly as consistently. Sometimes you have to be right in front of it before it will turn the light on, sometimes it will sense motion from 10 feet away. I wish it were more consistent, but I guess you can't ask much for that kind of money. I'd happily pay more for one that works better. My old one worked well for a year or two, but then was staying on long after it was supposed to, defeating the purpose of a motion sensor.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by baseballfan didnt work
Couldn't get the motion sensor to work to turn on and then turn off w timer .. either light was always off or always on. Difficult to use because sticker with labels on buttons fell off within minutes due to outlet heat.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by HDGuy Cheap outlet motion sensor / detector
I was hesitant to try these because the picture here really doesn't tell you enough, but they looked to be about half the size and price of other power outlet motion detectors I found online, so I tried 3 of them.
Things you can't see in the HD picture: It is a different size bladed plug so you can't flip it, and the 2-prong only (no ground) plug for a light or appliance is there on the flattened right side. It's about 2" tall x 4" wide, and doesn't cover up or obstruct the use of the other outlet on a wall plate.
I had trouble pressing the Mode button on one out of three of them, but the sticker with the writing on it comes off easily and you can poke the mode button with a pen if your fingernail won't do it.
The instructions give 0 information about what the Light adjustment dial is supposed to do, but if there's the slightest bit of light already in a room, it wouldn't trip the motion sensor, so I duct taped over the light sensor and like it a lot more now.
The time dial instructions say it's supposed to adjust between 1-30 minutes, but I don't know that it feels like a full 30.
I put one in the office on the wall behind where we sit at computers, and we have to wave at it every now and then to keep the light on. Same for the one in the living room, except it faces us on the couch.
Overall, it does a decent job for its price. I like walking into a dark room where the lamp is on the other side of the room and the light automatically turns on without having to fumble for the lamp switch, and I now don't get flack from the wife about forgetting and leaving the light on :)

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TNDIYDAD Nice light activated motion sensor
Timer quality is very good. My only issue was the front label fell off after 1 week in service (which was resolved by taping on the label).
Instructions were vague, but I finally figured out how to operate it after a couple hours of experiments with the room lights on and off.
I will purchase more of these units for other locations around my house.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DW83 Great product!
A very convenient product for going upstairs or entering a room in the dark. Only takes up half an outlet so you can still access the other half.
Only down side is the glue on the face sticker doesn't last and it falls off.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by lpn0729 Great Motion Sensor
We hooked this to a small table lamp in our sunroom which is separated by a sliding glass door to our living room. Now when we have to let the dog out, we open the sliding door, step into the sunroom, and - instant light! No fumbling or keeping lights on for no reason. We set the timer for about 1 minute. I think their are other settings as well. We love it and will likely order a second one.
