Installed this unite to use in turning on and off my outdoor fountain when people came in that area. Worked fine for about 2 years now it stays on all the time and I cannot get it to shut off. I have had motion sensors in the past and they all seem to not function well after a year or two so I will buy another and hope it last longer.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by homeowner Not 100% but good.
This is the same sensor as on the DF-5718 motion lamp, which I have also installed. Both are made by Heath-Zenith for Home Depot. I purchased it to replace an older sensor that was not sufficiently sensitive to motion. I am using old school bulbs in all the units. I like the dual-bright and bulb saver settings, though I think the dim setting should be a bit lower in brightness. For the problem some reported of the light staying on in the morning, or coming on too soon, these are not especially light sensitive, so do not aim them too far down if they are in a shady spot under the eaves. If that doesn't work, try the 6 hour setting instead of dusk-to-dawn. For those who can't seem to get them to work at all, make sure you have a ground connection. I hope PAR and "filament" LED bulbs will become more stable for outdoor use (winter) because I prefer that look.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by HanDMan replacement sensor
This sensor was the same style as the initially one so installation was simply just a matter of removing the old sensor, undoing the wire connections and swapping them out. We are hoping the replacement will continue to meet our needs,

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Customer May not work, check bulb types.
Will not work with 13 Watt Compact Fluorescent (GX23) bulbs. Works with standard filament type bulbs. Don't know about others (LED). Seems to need a certain amount of start up current to function. If it was designed this way wish they would put this info on the outside of the box for customers. I found some of the recommended bulb type info on this website. Doesn't help when you're in the store looking at product.
HD how about carrying a decent replacement motion sensor that works with all bulb types.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DIYinAtlanta High quality replacement sensor that is easy to install
One of my motion control lights stopped working after a few years. I went to Home Depot and thought about replacing the entire light. I bought my light several years ago and it has a metal base. When I looked at the motion control lights, I could get one with a plastic base for what I originally paid or I could get one with a metal base that was double the cost. Plus, the lights that they have now have a different mounting pattern. That would have been a hassle to install.
I noticed that I could get a replacement sensor for less money than buying the light. My light was in great shape so it didn't need to be replaced. I bought the replacement sensor. I removed the light and replaced the sensor. It only took about 30 minutes to an hour to remove the light, replace the sensor, and reinstall the light. It was very easy.
The light now functions perfectly. It has been a few weeks and it seems to work well. It appears to be a high quality replacement.
If you have an outside light that stops working, it is most likely the sensor unit. If your light is still in good shape, just buy the replacement sensor.
