The Hampton Bay lights sold by Home Depot with built in sensors that are "on at dusk off at dawn" are total junk. They are LED killers and CF killers. This one has a built in delay that eliminates that strobe effect that happens at dawn with the Hampton Bay junk which kills your bulbs. I actually drilled a hole in the mounting plate of my light fixture and mounted this thing. It solved the problem. Some might say it looks odd, personally I don't think it looks bad mounted that way, it looks very functional, and it is. I am going to try the Defiant ez346 next time as it is just a button type, but as for this one, well in a tricky location you can aim it for optimum performance and...problem solved.

After reviewing quite few of these in the same price range I settled on this one. Wired it up and it doesn't work. Tried setting it with the light switch, and nothing. A complete waste of my time and money. I destroyed the packaging trying to get it out. So I am, out the $10.00 I paid for it since it is not returnable without it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Andy Quick installation
The photocell that came with the floodlight I bought was cheap and didn't work under the eave of my garage, leaving the lights on all day. I originally installed this one between the lights, but it didn't work because the lights were so bright at night that the reflection off of the underside of the eave caused the photocell to turn the light on and off repeatedly all night long (something I thought would probably happen because of the location).
So, I bought a mount and installed the photocell around the corner, where the light from the floodlight would not affect it. It works great now, turning on right at dusk and turning off at dawn. The sensitivity of the photocell is good enough that it works properly in the morning even though it's facing West.
The installation instructions were very easy to follow, but they are printed right on the side of the photocell itself. Not a big deal except that there is a big silver sticker on the side of the photocell that stays there (tried to get it off, but very sticky). It has a plastic casing and plastic swivel joint which would probably not hold up well to bumps or constant adjustments, but I installed it high and out of the way and don't need to adjust it because it works perfectly.
Definitely a good purchase.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gman exact replacement allows lighting upgrades
This replacement photocell lighting controller not only replaces the original, but also allows lighting upgrades to CFL or LED instead of just incandescent, because it's made that way to begin with. It wires the same way with power in, power out and ground leads. It's waterproof construction allows it to be mounted right on the floodlight assembly outside. Also, because it's photocell, it doesn't matter what time darkness comes about or the cause of darkness, the lights come on anyway.
