Rated 5.0 out of 5.0Â by Jimmy Best outside light yet
I'd give this light much more than a 6 if I could.
The engineering that went into it is tops in my opinion.
Rather than just attaching to my cedar shingled garage I cut a piece of plywood, painted and finished adding junction box with the light base.
Then just snapping the light in the socket, as easy as plugging in a lamp.
The ease of installation is very good also. Controls are easily accessible and work well.
The light is up and running, I'll get 2 more on my next trip to Home Depot.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0Â by RednexToyz Easiest Install I've EVER Done!
I would have given this product 6-stars if it were possible!
The idea of energy savings and home security in one package is great! I've often found myself turning off or severely decreasing the sensitivity the motion lights because the halogen bulbs use too much electricity thus defeating their purpose. At only 15 watts of consumption when on & nearly equal light output to my older halogen lights, this was an EASY choice.
No assembly of the lite fixture itself is required. No bulbs to put in ... no knobs to adjust, etc.. Installation was, by far, the easiest I have ever had the pleasure of doing! 5-minutes! I didn't see, on the outside of the package, how easy it was till I got down to it. Here's the installation process:
Attach the little metal crossbar to the round electrical box in/on your wall (if equipped, attach the ground wire to the cross bar (#2 philips screw driver)
Remove the backing plate from the lite fixture (no tools needed). Pull the black & white wires thru 1 of the two holes in the backing plate. Attach backing plate to the cross bar with 1 screw in the middle. (#2 philips screw driver).
The backing plate has printed where to plug in the white & black wires. No guessing! Easy to see & understand! Tighten wires in white connector (tiny slotted screwdriver needed)
The lite fixture just slides onto the backing plate & makes electrical connection with a plug on the backing plate. Tighten in place with two thumb screws (no tools required). VERY EASY!
Adjust lite heads (no tools required & no knobs to adjust). Adjust three settings for duration of lite output (momentary to 4 minutes), LUX (how dark it needs to be outside to work) and Sensitivity (how sensative it is to animals, people, cars, etc This adjustment is on the back side of the round sensor. Just rotate the sensor around about 180Â° & make the adjustments. I didn't even know they were there at first!
Finished product is a clean looking unit at a great price. Lite output is very brite and covers my front yard well. Produces a daylight style white lite unlike halogen which is more on the warm tone.
I still can't get over how easy it was to install. No crimps, wire nuts or gaskets to fool with. No wires to try & "tuck" inside the j-box while holding the lite in place & trying to find the screws and a screwdriver. I love the concept that the lite just plugs onto the base plate making the electrical connection. GENIUS yet simple (and effective).
I'll be replacing the rest of my motion lights around the house & shop with these in the days to come!

I'm all about led lights, most known Cree led, now I don't know if that's cree but sure works like one, that means great bright light, very energy efficient, normal light bulbs are 90w each that makes 180w and led anywhere from 20 to 40w. Last a lot longer, the installation is very easy, one thing I don't like is that you have to use silicone to seal around the light mount to prevent water from getting in, all other lights come with foam seal. Design is very slick, easy to adjust, tight movement enought to adjust but not too much to be moved by wind. I give it 5 stars for overall design.

We placed Motion Security Lighting at the front and back of the home. We like them a lot and chose the Defiant 180 Degree Led Motion Light for our basement. Install was easy enough and hardwired at the bottom of the stairs for instant lighting when door is opened. The twin head lights can be positioned down
with ease and gives good coverage. Very pleased.

I am impressed by the look of this motion security light. The product is lightweight and easy to install. I put this light up in about 15 minutes. Easy to read and follow instructions. The twin head lights will rotate in different directions, so you can point them which ever way works best for you. 1100 Lumens of LED light is very bright, it will light your yard up. The LED bulbs will last 25,000 hours of use. It has selectable sensitivity so you can set it to pick up small or larger items in the space. You can set the time control to hold the light on for 10 seconds to 4 minutes. The LUX control lets you set the timer for day or night use. There are lots of options with this light. I would recommend this product.
