Flickering with LED Bulbs

I had these installed and used my existing incandescent bulbs and they worked perfectly. I wanted to switch the bulbs to LEDs to save some yearly wattage, but when I did so and when I switch the light on, both bulbs flicker. When I swap 1 bulb back to the incandescent, it works again. Thoughts?
Asked by: JP
Many low-cost LED PAR38 bulbs will not work properly with this light fixture (they will flash on and off). But there are specific brands and models of LED PAR bulbs that will work perfectly for all of this fixture's operating modes. I use the PHILIPS model 435016 (code 9290011112) and 435008 (code 9290011111) LED bulbs. Home Depot sells the PHILIPS model 435016 bulbs, singly and in four-packs. This bulb delivers 1200 lumens (100-Watt incandescent equivalent) but uses only 15-Watts, and has the Daylight (bluish-white) light color rated at 5000K (meaning 5000 degrees Kelvin color temperature). The Use And Care Guide for the Defiant and Heath-Zenith series 5416 light fixtures indicates that these fixtures can only use wet-rated incandescent or dimmable self-ballasted CFL bulbs, but in fact some dimmable LED bulb types can also be used without any problems. To clarify the confusion, LED bulbs do not have an electronic ballast per se, but they do have electronic driver circuitry, and it is due to differences in the driver designs between bulb models that some LED bulbs will work properly with this fixture while others do not. The PHILIPS model 435016 (bluish-white) and 435008 (yellowish-white) LED bulbs have twelve discrete LEDs with individual lenses in the head of the bulb, and provide a broad flood beam for wide area coverage. Search the Home Depot website for "PHILIPS 435016" to order these bulbs.

Does the DualBrite 2-level lighting of the Defiant 180 degree Outdoor Motion Sensor mean it stays on continuously at half-power from dusk to dawn?

How can I set it to only come on at night when there is motion? Mine stays on all night

Watch the set up video for the sensor onweb site for the light. Otherwise you may have a defective sensor.

This light does not work with all outdoor dimmable bulbs. I found ones that do and they are the Philips 120v LEDs. The light even works with just one LED in it. Im adding photos of the bulbs that I have tested and work.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Motion Light Purchased one last year and to-date, I have never had an issue with it's performance. This year I bought two more and have been using them for about a month or more. No problem with either one and glad I stayed with this manufacturer. The only issue I found was trying to use LED lights. I bought exactly what the manufacturer requires, but they did not work. After installing the light fixture the LED bulbs would start flashing on and off and never stopped. Took the LED bulbs back and bought two 120v bulbs.

Put LED in one & kept a low light flash no matter what the setting were, the box does not say compatible with LED for a reason,,,took the LED in put in incandescent and it worked. So don't do what I did,,,only go with one of the 3 bulbs listed on the box. Don't like that the lamp shield has to come off when changing bulb as it is hard when high up on a ladder to get both off. Won't know results of the lights until it gets dark.

So far it works really well and works with my General Electric PAR 38 LED 7 watt flood lights (outdoor rated). The overall construction quality is very good (metal housing) and a good value for the price paid. Time will tell how long the electronics will last. Tip: Installation is easy BUT make sure you follow directions when you install it. After reading some of the other posts, it's apparent that some did not follow installation directions. When properly installed, all switches/controls will be facing downward away from the elements. As for using LED lights, make sure they are at outdoor rated.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Won't work with LED.... I purchased, and installed this product. Installation was very easy. Sadly, it states that it works with LED bulbs, which it does NOT. I actually returned my bulbs thinking something was wrong with them. Made sure to get wet-rated, dimmable. Just flashed on and off. Checked different settings, nothing. Put in test mode, still flashing. :( Put in PAR38 incandescent bulbs and it worked great as advertised. BUT that is not what I wanted. So if you WANT something that works with LED's this is NOT the device for you. I'll probably return it and get what I really needed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from NOT LED compatible !!! Have 3 of these and all 3 worked fine, until I changed from incandescent to LED bulbs. The Dusk to dawn feature no longer worked and the lights would only stay on full brightness and wouldn't dim 50% any more like they did with incandescent bulbs. Another fixture would strobe on and off in any settings. After realizing all these problems I went up the ladders again and changed back to incandescents and then all worked right again, so I know it was the LED bulbs causing it. Dinikia at customer service checked with engineering twice and stated that LED's bulbs would not work with this unit, unfortunately she had no reply why they clearly state in the description that it IS LED compatible. Thanx for wasting so much of my time and money home depot!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for my garage. The sensor works great as expected, it picks up movement within required range. The halogen light is bright but not blinding and there are enough options to tweak it to my basic needs; lights on for 1 min, 5mins, 20 mins, from dusk til dawn or 24/7. The only issue was I had to purchase a seperate 4 inch round weatherproof electrical wiring box that secures the fixture to the wall and keeps the wires tucked in nice and neat. Make sure you get that box or have something else available or you will be making a another trip to HD. Other than that, for $34.97 and $4.98 for the box this is well worth it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worthless. Worked great for about a month, then came on when it felt like it. Won't stay on, even... Worthless. Worked great for about a month, then came on when it felt like it. Won't stay on, even with motion present (the red motion indicator light will be on as I walk in front of it). It replaced a less expensive Defiant model that I returned because it started cycling on and off by itself at 5-second intervals, all night long. The only reason I haven't returned this one is I don't feel like getting back up on the ladder and replacing it for the third time.... I can't believe Home D. even carries it.
