Customer Questions & Answers

Do you need a switch?

Could this light be turned on and off with the app? Does it need a switch to activate? I have a house that wasn't wired with exterior lights, and would like to add some but don't want to wire extra switches if I can avoid it. Can I simply tie this fixture into a live line and use the app to adjust settings and also as a switch, without having to actually wire a true switch??? Thanks in advance for any help!

Can this light be instaled on the eave?

Asked by: Lighting
No! I installed this on an eave TWICE! Both times, it filled with water after the first rain. If you insist on buying THIS product, mount it on flashing or a block, use a water tight enclosure and lots of caulk. Défient says it is OK for eaves and for "damp" locations. They're wrong. I recommend the cheaper LED model, ok for wet areas. Still use the caulk and water tight junction box.

How secure is the bluetooth

Can anyone with a smart phone download the app and then come and mess with the light settings or is it username password specific?
Asked by: greenwave97
The bluetooth only works if you are very close to the light (within 2 to 4 feet). How secure it is depends on how secure your bluetooth is.

How is this a 270 Degree Light?

270 degrees is 3/4 of a circle...not the 180 degree half circle light fixture I'm seeing here. A true 270 would mount at the 90 degree corner and provide equal light around that corner. Right? I guess I'm waiting for one of those, also with mounting to hang from a horizontal soffet box for the correct pattern.
Asked by: markenn
I'm pretty sure they mean the motion sensor is 270 degrees, but the light is 180. Not sure how that is useful, since it needs to be mounted on a wall, but I have an older version, and it is, indeed, very good at picking up motion all around it.

270 Degree White LED Bluetooth Motion Outdoor Security Light is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 135.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Partially meeting my needs I have mounted it on top of my garage. Motion sensor barely works. I thought it will work if any one walk towards my front door but it detects if I walk really close to the sensor then it will work. I am using this as a automatic light rather than motion sensor. I called support and explained my problem they did not seem to be surprised at all. I even explained that it is detecting the cars going on the road but not people walking in front of my home. They said it is detecting heat and that is how it works. So stupid, I am tired of changing these lights and just keeping the light. I do not recommend it, waste of money

Had the same problem with the motion sensor filling up with water after a heavy rain storm (as many other reviewers have mentioned). Light failed completely due to this. Luckily it was still within the 90 day period and I was able to get a refund. I had installed two different Defiant models at the same time (DFI-5982), with have a different motion sensor enclosure, and these are still working OK. Can't recommend this particular (DFI-5985) model for outdoor use unless the design or manufacturing issue that lets water get inside it's motion sensor enclosure is corrected.

I've installed hundreds of motion detector lights over the last 30 years and now I'm replacing most of my own home's CFL and remaining incandescent lighting with LED's. I'm an electrician and the majority of my work is commercial. LED lighting comes in many shapes and forms and these fixtures for residential outdoor use are the latest. This light was installed above my garage about 2 weeks ago, its mounted approximately 7'6" off grade. Its low so remember that while reading this. I replaced a 15 year old motion detecting fixture that had 2 - 90W PAR lamps that always seemed to be half the night. It mounted easily to a round weatherproof box using the supplied hardware. I repositioned the motion detecting sensor to be above the lamps for more height (greater range). The wrap-around style LED's are bright enough to temporarily blind when the first come on, if your in total darkness. They should be located high enough and positioned to illuminate the area directly in front of it. The motion detector itself is very sensitive and has a greater range then advertised, even with the sensitivity at minimum it still turns on at over 50' when detecting motion. As for brightness its not like your old Incandescent/Halogen PAR lamps (old style round reflector bulbs), the LED's do a decent job of illuminating say a 50'W x 30'L area with a bright white light. The lights are movable and can be positioned separately. The caveat is the lamp color being a bright white light (compared to what the family was use too), weighed against having to change out a power hungry bulb every few years, they'll get use to it. The light can be adjusted via a downloaded Bluetooth app named "Defiant" it allows for setting LED brightness and duration upon detection. You can also have it perform as a "Dusk to Dawn" light that will still go to a higher level of brightness when motion is detected. If your standing close enough you can turn it on/off it manually. That brings me to the second caveat, in my home I have at least 5 or 6 different devices (including a car) that pair to my smart phone. I had to get very close to the fixture in order to "pair" with it. Once done I still have to be within 20' to access the light. The area I live in has the second highest electrical rates in the country, so this fixture in 2 years it will have paid for itself. I've read some reviews where there's problems connecting but I haven't had those issues.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Cannot set to manual on/off; deficient firmware & app The basic device design is good, motion sensor works well and the light output is excellent. However, as others have noted, you can turn off the device via the app but it turns back on immediately when motion is detected. I replaced an older non-Blutooth / WiFi connected incandescent motion sensor security fixture in an area adjacent to our finished deck. The intent was to have a security light that can be turned on/off via an app when we have friends over for BBQs. This device *DOES NOT* meet the requirements of this use case. We'll be returning it to the store for a refund enroute to Lowes to purchase a functional product.

I was very hopeful that I would not have to climb a ladder almost three stories high every again to change a burned out light and this light seemed like the answer to my prayers. Then what appears to be happening to many others happened....rain in the sensor and it's now disabled. I should have gone with the less expensive, water tight versions also mentioned in the reviews below.

I recently installed this light over my garage to provide light to my driveway when I come home at night or perhaps someone is snooping around the area with bad intent. I am happy to report the the light works flawlessly and is very easy to set-up using the Bluetooth app. Plus, the lights are LED so they should last a long time and be economical to run.

Installing it was simple and the motion sensor covers a large area. The bluetooth feature is easy to use. The feature that lets you keep the light dim until motion is detected works well and is a great option if you have neighbors nearby and don't want the light all full strength all night. It is a very bright light.
