Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Steven Light is great. LED is not.
This light is bright. It casts an even consistant blanket of light that is much more like a glow then a "spot light." The motion sensor works just as expected. Very efficently no false triggers.
WARNING: I called customer service because my light will not remain on (dusk to dawn mode.) This is because LED lights bug out when 2 lights tie into one switch I am told. I was advised to wire each light to a seperate switch or even better directly to fuse box. That will be the day.. So I am left with flood lights that are amazing however I have to do the old wave my arms trick to trigger them.. Very lame.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jaye Very pleased with this light fixture
When I first had the light installed it would come on all the time as soon as it got dark. We were upset that it did not have a sensitivity function. Like most I assumed it had one because the majority of motion activated security lights do. However, I dealt with the lack of this function and the fact that it always came on, by simply adjusting the range of the sensor. Now it covers the driveway and surrounding areas of the house without coming on for cars that drive by or people that walk by. You actually have to walk up in the drive way or approach the house from the side to get the light to come on. We are very happy with this light. Also it is super bright, I love the look of this light at night.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rich Awesome security light!
Wow! I am the only one giving this light an awesome rating! I purchased one and installed it the same day. I put the light on test mode and walked around until I was satisfied that it covered a 90 degree angle. This would turn on and off ever 4 seconds until you find your sweet spot. I have only seen the security lights turn on once by itself, and I believe it's because I always have a neighbors cat that walks in my back yard. After I got this all set up, it works beautifully!! It only activates at night and it turns on EVERY SINGLE time I walk by the area of where I set it (in test mode). I know the knob does not have numbers and it says that it goes 0-12 mins max. Someone had left a review that it doesn't have numbers. But doesn't it make sense that if you turn it half way, that you would assume it would be 6 minutes? Or if you turned it 1/4 turn, that it would be 3 minutes? this light is insanely bright and I LOVE IT! I'm getting ready to purchase a second set to replace my other security light.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BRCjr You have to adjust the sensitivity correctly
The installation was very easy. However, it takes a little time and patience to get the sensitivity adjusted (hence the reason for 4 stars).
Mine started staying on all night, as others have described. I talked to HD help line and they put me on the line with Defiance tech. Pretty nice touch by HD, as they put me on hold for a few minutes and got the tech on the phone right away.
The solution is to turn the "auto" knob all the way down to "test" and then move it a small amount. Then either put some tape over the sensor or adjust it when it gets dark enough for it to operate. After a few adjustments it comes on when walk out to our detached garage without false triggers from wind blown leaves, etc. It comes on when it rains ..... but energy wise it can't be beat. My knob is turned less than 50% andis just right for my needs.
Yea, it's a little trouble, but this is a very clean white light that costs only a few dollars to operate each year. I live near a salt water bay and this thing still looks new after 6 months use.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ERome14 Great purchase!
At first I thought the price was a little high for a light, but this was actually a great purchase. Easy to install. Adjusts to pretty much any angle. Super bright at night, illuminates a very large area. And the sensor only detects at night, so if you walked passed it during the day, it doesn't turn on when it doesn't need to be.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by lh They look good and are plenty bright!
It was easy to install and do the adjustment was quick. After a couple weeks it would stay on all of the time and I would need to shut the power off for a couple of minutes. Then would work good again for another two weeks. After six months of this the relay has gone out for the motion sensor. Home Depot honored it and let me exchange it. This model is only available online now. I would not recommend it, I am going to try a two lamp one.
A friend has installed many of these motion sensor lights and has issues with the sensors of different brands and models..

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by inthedark Do not buy
Purchased three of these lights for a rental property. Within 6 months of install none of the lights function properly. Lights are junk - do not buy.
