when I bought this light, I must to have been misled. I bought it so that it would on come on when motion was detected. It also states in the operations manual (normal) light comes on instantly. Since I had an electrician install it, with the wall light switch in on position and the switch on the motion sensor in normal the light says on. I thought the light would come on only when motion was sensed. In soft, yes the light is dim until motion activated. In flash the manual says "light flashes on then off twice before turning on full brightness". in that mode the light still stays on in dim when not activated. I bought this unit for 2 reasons. One for security reasons and two by saving money because it was my understanding that light (dim or bright) would not come on unless detecting motion.

Rated 3.4 out of 5 by 17 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Only one out of three worked Purchase three of these and only ONE worked. The other two factory defects and had to return. Every time I have a problem with a product, I look at the bottom of the box and guess what? MADE IN CHINA! I'm a contractor and this is getting ridiculous. Numerous, various items I have had to return, all made in China. What good is cheap prices if the quality is so substandard? Make twice the work and wasted miles returning. October 24, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by product did not work from outset I bought this light to replace an identical one that had stopped working. The replacement was therefore easy. Unfortunately, the light did not work from the outset, specifically the light came on and stayed on and would only go off until I cut power to it. I even had an electrician look at it since he was at the house for another job. He could not get it to work properly. A call to Home Depot support got me an electrician who told me to make sure the sensitivity was set as low as possible. That made no difference. The quality of construction is poor - the sensor is supposed to swivel inside a socket - I could never get the socket screwed tight enough to prevent the sensor simply dangling off the light. I went to Lowes and bought an Utilitech Pro. Although twice the price of this light (mainly because it is LED) it had much better build quality, was much easier to hook up, and worked immediately.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Works Well Purchased two units to replace two older 270 deg motion units for two different houses that were no longer sensing motion correctly. All in all a fine product, but what I don't understand is why the mounting base is not round but instead is this decorative oblong shape that would only be ideal flush mounted on a wall! My Installation was to a round surface mounted box attached to the soffit for home one, and to a round box attached to the side of a tree for home two. I found it challenging in both instances to get the barely large enough round gasket to properly seat between the box and the light mounting plate. A slightly larger gasket or better yet, going back to a round base would remedy this issue. Setting the sensors was a breeze and the functionality is great. June 23, 2015
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Unimpressed I'm pretty unimpressed. In the store, motion lights are displayed in "good/better/best" tiers. These are listed under the "best" tier... so I had high expectations that the extra money would be worth it. Installation was simple and pretty straight forward, configuration/aiming is easy... but the motion sensor is SO TOUCHY. We have ornimental grass about 25 feet away from the light. If there is even a mild wind the grass blades will cause the lamp to kick on. That can be corrected by dialing the sensor down to it's lowest level... but then I have to be almost directly underneath it before it identifies me and kicks on. I'm really unimpressed. How hard is it to build a decent heat/motion sensors these days? April 14, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Not inexpensive, cheap! This unit looked good and the price had just been reduced, making it inexpensive by comparison. Wrong, this thing is just cheap junk. One of the thumb screws intended to hold it together was too short and would not reach. Also the socket was so poorly attached to the housing, it came loose and dangeled by the wires. I will be returning this and hope I can do better. May have to look elsewhere for a few months. June 16, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Works fine Easy to assemble and adjust for desired operation. Make sure the box you mount to is deep enough to receive the mounting screw. I had a shallow pan from the previous security light that had to be changed out in order to give the room for the screw and snug up the assembly. June 23, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very good light Tried other motion detector security lights without success. This light works very well, good range. June 23, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great light! Had this light installed by an electrician, since I don't know anything about electricity. Light functions like it should. Have it set on dusk till dawn and it does what it should. Goes from bright to dim and if motion is detected, goes to full bright. It is made of plastic, which I don't like and the settings are on the bottom of the sensor, which are very hard to see. Other than that, it works well and I would buy another one, if and when needed.
