Rated 2.8 out of 5 by 17 reviewers.
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Contradictory instructions The printed instructions say to attach the red wire on the sensor to the black wires on the lights. However, the tape tags on the wires themselves say to attach the red wire on the sensor to the hot wire. I called and the man I spoke to could not explain the contradiction. He told me to go with the printed instructions. I asked what would happen if the tape tag instructions were right. He did not know. Not a good start. April 29, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Inferior product I bought this as a replacement last fall and it worked OK for 5 months, then it no longer detected motion. I bought a second replacement today, but when I tested the new one before installation, it was no good right out of the box! It will be returned, but to late too return the original. April 25, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Doesn't work with CFL lamps Purchased to replace an existing motion detector which controlled CFL lamps. I learned that this unit does not work with CFL lamps. No where on the package or manual does it say that. I called the service number and was told that it won't work with LEDs either. Only works with Tungsten or Halogen bulbs the service center said. At a time when we are trying to save electricity, this is unacceptable. April 12, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Loved this thing, until it quit working. I bought this a little over 2 years back. I installed it over the garage door to activate the 2 lights on either side of the door. It worked great, coming on at night and turning off during the day. It has an awesome field of detection. Then a week ago it did not come on at night. I fiddled with all the switches and even asked my neighbor if he was messing with me. It will come on once if I mess with the switches, then not again. For $25 I am not going to buy one every 2 years. Mine is mounted out of the weather and never gets hit with basketballs or anything. I expected at least 10 years out of it. February 22, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Junk out of the box All the fun I went thru to install this thing and it didn't work. Called the factory they said sorry take it back to the store and exchange it. I did but for my my money back. I tested the new one first this time. March 30, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Don't waste your money We had this motion sensor installed in our back deck post lantern by a professional electrician. Once the light comes on, it will never turn off again,; the light stays on the whole night and day until you shut if off from the switch. The electrician had no explanation to why this was happening other than the quality of the sensor. We went through all the possible setting combinations and it did not make any difference. It is a good value for your money, but then you get what you pay for. July 13, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by good product, works well Bought this motion sensor replacement head well over one year ago. The device works as designed, all settings and features work great. Have used STD.
