Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Okay Light, I FOUND THE SOLUTION, PROBLEM SOLVED I see a lot of people having problems with this light. I found some solution tips, that might help solve your problem. One major thing is that people forget or don't know about the manual override, this is what drives people crazy, saying to themselves, "my light doesn't work, it turns on and then its stays off, whats going on?" just switch your light off for 4 seconds and switch it back on this will turn off manual mode. same goes for when turning manual mode on. The other tip is the Dusk to Dawn technology is poorly made, don't bother to use just switch it off and cover the little sensor with electrical tape to prevent light strobbing. Also note, if accidentally the kids play with the light switches and toggle the manual override, remember in order to toggle the on and off manual mode, you have to remove the electrical tape in order to reset. Well, I hope this works people. April 29, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Very Disappointed Here's the summary: This unit lights up the yard fine but only when it wants to. Then , it stays on for the time chosen, goes off for 20 seconds or so and turns on and off again all through the night. Everything was programmed exactly as the manual called for. Hours on end, on and off. It went right off the wall and right back to Home Depot the next day. It's looking like HD puts a lot of substandard merchandise on their shelves. They better start considering to have higher standards with merchandise or it's back to the privately owned hardware stores. This is not the first time this has happened. March 28, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by I'm happy with this motion detector I read some negative reviews prior to purchase but I still decided to give this motion detector a shot. I had an existing light that I was replacing and the install didn't require any additional wiring so it took roughly 10 minutes to have the light installed. You do need to put a bead of caulk around the base of the light because they don't include a gasket but that is a very simple job and I bought some caulk for about 2 bucks at HD when I purchased the light. I waited about a month to write this because I wanted to see how the light performed and it's working great so far. The light has some decent features including a setting for the light to automatically turn on at dusk and turn off at dawn. This setting allows the light to come on automatically at a dimmer light but then when motion is detected, the light gets much brighter. You can also use the light as a traditional on/off light when motion is detected. Overall for the price and quality I'm happy with it. January 20, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Not happy at all It was easy to install, However....I've been climbing up and down the ladder to adjust it for the past two weeks...It seems to operate its own way, I needed a light that comes on when someone enters my backyard so my cameras can record that person. The problem is...It either comes on and goes off , and constantly does THAT.....Or it comes on and stays on all night, Not what I want it to do....I have had the settings on every one of them....Either I've bought a lemon, or all the reviews are correct....Am definitely bringing this back....I mean REALLY!!!!....Who needs a really nice looking light that don't work correctly.....If your looking for security....THIS AINT IT.....

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Don't buy this product If you want your outdoor lights to come on at various times whether or not you or anyone else is nearby and/or fail to operate at all, then this product is for you! Doesn't matter what settings you select, it wont work as described in the manual. Sometimes you can jump up and down and flail your arms wildly and it will stay off. At other times you can be watching TV and you'll notice that the light is going on and off outside driving your neighbors nuts. Recommendation: chastise yourself for being so cheap, rip it out of the wall, throw it in the garbage, and buy another product at a higher price point! December 25, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Not This One Do NOT waste your money on either the white colored or bronze colored 270 degree model from DEFIANT brands. They are junk. I have been installing motion sensor lights since they became available to the general public. This is the worst. They may look exactly like the ones that worked for 8 to10 years, but these are not the same. January 18, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Peace of mind I installed two of these security lights to the front of the house after seeing how wonderfully it works on the side of the garage. The motion detector has never failed, and the motion detector is easily adjustable. I especially like it when I have to let the dogs out into the front yard to take care of their business after dark. And it has already warned me as well as discouraged an unwanted "visitor" was my property much too close to the front door and windows. I have LED bulbs in one detector and one traditional bulbs in the other. The LED lights are obviously brighter with more projection, but the traditional bulbs are effective. October 27, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great So Far! Easy to install and very bright for LED. Like that colors are true and not washed out by typical white/bluish LED light. Sensor covers a very broad area and picks up all movements. I've used LED exterior lights before that started out well but water damage killed what was suppose to be waterproof. Hoping this one performs better. December 23, 2014
