Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Don Bought 3, all failed within a year
I bought 3 and each of them failed within a year. On one, the motion sensor stopped working. On another, the sunlight sensor failed (so it turns on when sensing motion even in bright daylight). The third stays on all the time. Maybe I should have expected a lifetime of only a year considering the price? I'd be willing to pay more for reliability if only I could figure out which are reliable without having to wait a year.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RS 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 1.0 out of 5.0 by Santinelli 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.

We purchased this light as a replacement for one that had ceased working. We had it installed by an electrician who had come to do another job for us, and it took no time at all to get it installed. We love the constant dim light (comes on when it gets dark and stays off during the day). When motion is detected, the light blinks and then comes on full force. We love this light; it provides enough light to illuminate the yard for our dog, and we can see the blinking from the living room, so we know something has triggered the brighter light. It also has a low profile and the white matches our eaves. When our driveway light finally dies, we will get another one of these to replace it. Highly recommend this motion spotlight for homeowners!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Fustrated Difficult to install
Bought Defiant 180 sensor light 18 months ago. Sensor went bad. New sensor is $25, new replacement light $35. HOWEVER, new light has different mounting and current oulet box had to be replaced. Shame on Defiant for not providing an adapter. When back to Home Depot and they were no help in providing tips or adapter. Note on the website how they show a new box. If you buy the light get the box and spend an extra hour replacing.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Dar Quality Control Lacking
Product suffers from sloppy design and quality control. First the housing is a shallow hemisphere section that is inadequate for the unnecessarily long and bulky wires and connectors between elements of the light. Second the lock nuts were frozen by paint and/or jammed against the housing requiring major force. Third the threads on the long screw that completes the final mounting are poor quality and difficult to start in the mounting bracket.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Jack Not as advertised
The HD ad (above) says LED bulbs can be used, so I purchased this product along with two EcoSmart 90W Equivalent bulbs. I did note that there was no mention of LED bulbs on the package or instructions. The bulbs I purchased are dimmable and can be used in damp locations per the package. I went ahead and completed the installation. When I tested, the bulbs started flashing on/off. There is an option to have the bulbs flash so I assumed that it was the switch setting. I powered everything down and reset the switch and waited for night to test. It still blinks. The troubleshooting instructions says that this happens with CFL bulbs that are not dimmable, my bulbs are LED and do dim correctly when installed in a normal circuit. I plan to uninstall and return this in the morning.
