Customer Questions & Answers

Is there any way to adjust the sensitivity level?

This is going in an animal-traffic area and I don't want every squirrel to set it off. Thanks!
Asked by: Oceanside
Yes on the bottom there is a sensitivity dial hard to read due to it being same color as fixture(brown) so we recommend reading the dials first before installing and take a picture on cell phone to help when setting. But works great!!

Will this work with standard fluorescent bulbs?

Asked by: Oceanside
fluorescent bulbs can be used but not LED

Why does it say you have to have a switch in the line? Is it because this is the only way to get into "manual" mode?

I want the sensor to supply power to a duplex (standard outlet) that I have plugged a small fountain pump and an LED light into. When motion is detected, the pump and light turns on for five minutes (selectable on sensor) and turns off when no one is around. I will tape the photo eye shut to allow daytime operation. Wiring is as follows: 1: All whites go together on one side of duplex. 2: Black hot and black sensor go together. 3: Red sensor goes to black side of duplex. Why doesn't this work?

So you can shut off the fixture when it has to be worked on

Customer Reviews

270 Degree Black Replacement Outdoor Motion Sensor is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 50.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't waste your time with this product. I'm on my second motion sensor light from Home Depot and this one has failed yet again. This system works well for about 1 year and then suddenly malfunctions resulting in the light staying on 24/7. My guess is poor materials/sensors. I wouldn't waste your time with this product unless you like doing repairs and/or only need this product for under a year.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible This DOES NOT WORK WITH LED, learned that 3 days after messing with the thing, bought all dimmble leds, then non dimmable, bought a switch, led capable, still the lights glow dull and then off. Does not say anything about leds.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Flashes with LED bulbs I purchased this and two LED flood lights at Home Depot. With the LED floods - the sensor continuously flashes on and off. Switching back to CFLs, the flashing stops.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good but not stylish I have installed three of these to replace a brand marketed as durable and sturdy. The first time are doing fine so far (two years). My only wish is that there was a design that did not look so space age and modern (obtrusive) for common classic home styles, be they simple ranches, arts & crafts, or Victorian.

In case you are looking for an LED motion sensor this product will not work but will with all other types of light for exterior. It is priced right and easy to install even for the average project handy person.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Motion sensor Product works fine for being plastic, other than being the only choice on the shelf and only white or black to pick from which neither go with earth tones or the rest of the bronze fixture, it works well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Replacement for outdoor light sensor Does the job and comes with clear installation instructions. As with all other infrared sensors, it is sensitive to wind causing the sensor to turn on the attached light.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Retrofit to existing lights I installed this on my existing outdoor lights which did not have an existing motion detector. Bit of a retrofit but works great.
