Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by BC68 Does not work with LED bulbs nor is sensor reliable.
I am having a garage built, so I bought several of these for the outside. NONE of them work correctly (note, all installed by professional electrician who was doing wiring for the whole garage).
1) When you put 2 PAR38 LED bulbs in (Model# 5bHPR1200SW1D03) , the lights will always flash at night (think disco light kind of flashing). If you replace one bulb, they will stop flashing.
2) The sensors are junk, one simply won't function correctly no matter what I do and the light is always on. The other just comes on at random times, during the day even. Sensor doesn't seem to know night from day, and it doesn't matter what sensitivity I set it at.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by JF Does NOT work as advertised - Piece of JUNK - DO NOT BUY
Paid a electrician 150.00 to install this new light and it does NOT work. All the settings are as
prescribed just a defective product. Will have to pay the electrician to pull the light down so
I can take this piece of junk back to Home Depot and get my money back. Nothing for nothing
the construction of this light is super POOR quality, very flimsy junk. Even if it worked it looks
like it would fall off the electrical box in no time held in place by a one small miniature screw.
Called the customer service but they could only say bring it back to the store. Well I will do just
that tomorrow. Thank god I saved the old fixture as I will put that one back. It is a professional
series dual spot light with a dusk to dawn sensor. High quality metal construction will last a long
time. So much for high tech sensor lighting.

Sensor works well. Tried to use cfl's but they would flicker so I had to go with halogens.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by KevinZ works great, easy install
This wires right up and has several modes. Once decided, set the switches and tweak the sensitivity. It took a little tweaking but it works great. Has good viewing range and great sensitivity.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Marc 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.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by LTP It works just like the ad said it would.
It was easy to install and test. It works every time someone or something comes within the
large sensing area.
I am pleased with the light.

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.
