Answer: 
Yes, it stays at half power until someone or some thing triggers the motion sensor. Then it comes on at full power for however long you set it for, and then goes back to half power.

Answer: 
Hi Buyer, you're right. The light stays on at a reduced level. You can set the time for 3 hrs, 6 hrs, or from dusk to dawn. While in this setting, the light will become brighter if motion is detected.
Here is a link to a manual below.

Doing some research, I found out that the sensor is so sensitive in this new model that just the heat or reflected light from the unit itself will constantly trigger the sensor. So, I put the sensitivity all the way down, and swung the arms all around in different positions until I could get it to work properly. It took a long while, but I finally got the right configuration to make it work properly. Read Less

I have seen no issue with this light.(at least on the model I have) [HD # 703 499, Model # DF-5416-WH-A]
If you want to toggle the amount of time the light stays on (this is not motion detected time) try the "DUAL-BRIGHT" switch. This switch set to off will cause the light to only light when motion is detected (and then to what the on time switch is set for) when dark enough. if the DB switch is set to Read More

This switch set to off will cause the light to only light when motion is detected (and then to what the on time switch is set for) when dark enough. if the DB switch is set to the 3 or 6 you will get a semi lit light for that duration in hours I think when first powered on. The Dawn to Dusk will make the light illuminate at something like 1/2 power for the duration of the darkness. Hope that helps
The manual link I saw earlier in another question doesn't seem to be accurate. Here is an updated link to the model I referenced above.

Answer: 
That is the problem with these lights. They just stay on, and they're not supposed to. I had two sets and no matter the settings they just stayed on super bright mode all night. They are supposed to switch between bright and dim, or on/off depending on the setting.

Answer: 
Yes If it is attached to a wall switch, simply turn the switch off and immediately back on. The light will come on and stay on until it cycles off in the morning. To reset, turn the light off, wait about 10 seconds and turn it back on. It will come on and cycle as normal.

Rated 3.7 out of 5 by 70 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 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! August 19, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Decent price good product for the span of price ranges. Not too much one can say about a sensor light.qq August 30, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by 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. September 3, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Does not work with LED light balls, Used LED 38 par dimmable wet rated light balls . Kept flashing on and off . Even if I cover photo sensor with tape. Does not work with LED light balls. Other wise good fixture. August 22, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by 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. August 25, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Superb Love the low light it provides and the bright light upon motion. September 6, 2016
