Rated 2.3 out of 5 by 28 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by motion detector doesn't work. I bought this a couple days ago, and installed it up on the side of the house 12 feet up. followed the guide for tuning it etc.. every night the darn thing turns on for no apparent reason and stays on. I've spent days checking and rechecking the tuning. Nothing works. Very disappointing. the troubleshooting guide gives like 20 things that can affect whether this works or not. Which IMO is not reasonable. This should be a install and it works type of thing which leads me to believe the motion detection part of this is just junk. if you want a light that stays on all night, this is it. If you want a motion detector that actually works and isn't influenced by 20 different possible variables (including other lights in the house being fluorescent), then look elsewhere. July 22, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Hated this light I returned the next day The light was very easy to install, But when i plugged in the light the test light came on then shut off. I read the instructions on how to adjust the sensitivity I did exactly what the book said. I tried 3 different times during the day and during the night, no matter what I did I could not make this light work. I went to another store the next day and bought a different brand and led light. I brought it home hooked it up I turned on the new light and had it adjusted in 5 min all done. Next project March 13, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Worst piece of junk I ever bought! The motion sensor on this light absolutely doesn't work. It goes on or off for no reason what-so-ever. I have spent many hours trying to adjust its settings to no avail. It does not work. I will return this junk tomorrow. I can't believe they are selling this at Home Depot! March 23, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by DEFIANT PIECE OF JUNK Looks good, easy install. Mine started blinking in a random stacatto pattern upon install. As a contractor, time is money. After reading several reviews, buy several, and return the defectives, or just stay away from this. March 13, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Sensor not working Light stays on all the time for no reason if you want a light that doe s not work I say buy this one and pull your hair out of your head March 5, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by outdoor motion sensor lighs I had to purchase 3 items to get 2 that worked. When they worked they are great. February 24, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by total junk total waste of time and money. Will be returning shortly. The settings don't work. It turns on in "test" mode, but once it switches off it stays off no matter what mode it's in. I can't believe Home Depot carries such garbage. DO NOT BUY. October 13, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Motion Light Easy to install and works great. Like the design and smaller blbs February 18, 2015
