Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Bjorn Absolute garbage! Do not waste your time!
I am only gonna give 2 stars for the looks and ease of installation. Other then that this light has some issues either stays on or does not come on at all. I have referred to the manual which is also really poorly thought out. I put it into test mode as recommended and set the sensitivity but that is where the motion detection stops. When I set it to a time limit it does not come on. This product is garbage! i called customer support only to get an answering machine..... if this is what your customer support is I do not want he product anyways. Buyers beware do not waste time or effort on this spend the few extra bucks and get that Lithonia price is a little more for a reason.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Tooker Didn't work for long.
Wanted light for security at night but this light didn't last too long. As previously mentioned by others, the sensor no longer works after only a year. It's no wonder it was discontinued.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by justinotherguy Not worth the premium price, or any for that matter
Purchased in January and installed without a hitch. The unit looks really nice and its got some heft to it, so it appears quality made. It worked great... until about a week ago (mid-March). It is really bright too, so I was really happy with it. Originally, it would only come on at night, and only if motion was detected which is exactly what I wanted. But then, all of a sudden it started staying on all the time, light or dark, motion or not. So I went to see if putting it back in test mode would 'reset' the thing. That did nothing. I was almost content to just leave it on, it's LED after all. I moved one of the arms to adjust where the light would be aimed and it broke off in my hand. Apparently there is a metal nut that holds on the arm from the backside, only the 'bolt' is hollow (for the wires) and made of plastic. Total piece of junk I now see..

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Steelguy Bright light
It's a nice looking light and installs easily. I mounted mine about 12 ft. above the window in my backyard for my dog. He does not set it off that easily which is not good. Now for the worst part, these lights are bright. I'm talking blinding bright. My daughter looked out and said it looks like the police just caught someone in the act. I went out to check myself and was temporarily blinded. I'm going to take this back once my sight returns.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Steve Second unit was the charm
I bought the first unit and installed it, and like the others, I could not make the motion detector activate until I was 5 or 6 feet away. Reading the comments on this page almost made me give up and concur with the poor rating. I ended up calling their tech support and spoke with a guy that acted surprised at my findings and he advised me to try another unit. I wasn't so sure that I was buying his advice but I decided to take mine back and try another one. Installed the second one and it works perfectly. I've only had it installed for one full evening at this point and I am prepared for the possibility that it could still malfunction at some point in the near future. I hope not, because it is a nice compact little unit with very bright yet thrifty led lamps. Obviously the quality control on this Defiant product is not up to my standards so I admit to having some hesitation to recommend it to others.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Toledo123456 Don't know why everyone else is having a problem
Well I saw a stack of these yellow boxes and decided to give one a try. I love the ideo of LED but up until now I was unable to find a BRIGHT led motion light that I approved of. I installed the 1st unit on the side of my house, and put the sensitivity to the highest level "I think it is 40ft" and it would pick up cars driving past the house and that is actually 50 feet from the house, the timer setting worked just fine and I never needed the instructions to instal as I have done this type of installation many times. I was so impressed with just how bright these lights were I went back to HD and bought 2 more to replace my existing lights on the deck. So now 2 weeks into it all 3 units are functioning properly, no install issues, damages, or sensor issues, anothing. I am giving the product 5 stars because of just how easty the product is to install, the fact that they work, and also that they are B R I G H T! with 2 lights in my backyard it is almost day light......

It looks great and puts out enough light for my 20x20 patio. The only issue I have is the delay between detecting motion and the light coming on. I can here a 'click' when it knows someone has been detected, but it takes another 10 seconds for the light to come on.

This light is bright but the operating instructions and product description is misleading. Dusk til dawn is only for one night then you have to reset it to stay on. There is no way to make the light stay without going to the shed where I mounted it and flicking the switch every night. It is going back.
