How can I use this light ONLY as a dusk-to-dawn light?

I don't need a motion sensor light. I also do not want the dual-bright feature. I simply want this light to turn ON at dusk, turn OFF at dawn, and be at FULL POWER all through the night. Simple, yes. Is this possible?
Asked by: x92127
Model DF-5718 has a daylight sensor. The sensor inhibits daylight activation. The manual's troubleshooting guidances for this says: Perhaps the light has been installed in a relatively dark location, Perhaps the ON-TIME switch is in the TEST position. Note:If you can see the small, viewing window of the daylight sensor, is it blocked with what looks like corrosion? Mine has some green looking stuff inside the small window and it must think it's eternally night time! Could be due to sitting out in the elements instead of under cover. Thankfully, the warranty is for 2 years.

I had a contractor installed my units (2) and he could not get them to operate properly. The lights kept flashing in spite of the numerous adjustments suggested in the manual. This went on for two days. The bulbs were inspected for compatibility, the sensors were adjusted for proximity to the bulbs, the switches were verified and others were asked to inspect the units. This motion outdoor security light should be recalled. I have to get someone to uninstall them and returned them. These units are useless.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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 3 out of 5 by from Get correct bulbs! Works great but bulbs bought had to be returned because it requires specific bulbs as told to me by Tech support. Box makes no mention of specific bulb just model type of bulbs. I originally thought unit was defective and was going to return it. I have to save bulb box for future part number reference when replacement is needed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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.
