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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Moviequeen Perfect Outside Spotlight
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 3.0 out of 5.0 by James nice light but...
I do like this light but, it didnt work for me. I tryed leds in this light and it kept flashing on and off. Then tryed Standard halogen and the light would not turn off at night at all. The high low function works but something was defective. I removed and upgraded to an LED complete fixture.

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 1.0 out of 5.0 by Quest 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!
