The sizing or threads seems just a bit off because its hard to get the bulbs to screw in straight and then they don't ever really feel "set" completely. On one of the ones I got the inner metal cup popped off as I was screwing in the bulb so it wouldn't work. Took that one back and exchanged for another... happened again! Tried once more and this time it stayed intact but I couldn't get both lights to work at the same time... could be because I'm using CFLs but at this point I'm done with these. Only bright spot of the whole thing is the nice folks at the HD returns desk.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from poorly made I believe the photocell is poorly made... when I screwed in a bulb the inner ground shell twisted off the two rivets that attach the ground shell. I returned it for credit. Another potential problem is that the direction of photo cell.does not point in the direction of the rising or setting sun and there is no way to correct direction in which it points when the unit is seated.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst product and still being sold at Home Depot Home Depot should read the reviews on the web about the automatic dawn to dusk light control. Most people hate the product and have for a long time. Guess someone at Home Depot is OK with everyone bring back the product.

There is an inside piece that the light bulb screws into that is made of brass and is very thin and is held in with 2 rivets at the bottom. You have to be very careful when screwing in the light bulb and not apply too much torque or you will tear out the rivets, like I did. They seem to work ok but are very poorly made.

This product did not work with two new porch lights -- one with translucent glass and the other clear glass. I tried several different incandescent bulbs (the only kind allowed) and all of them were dim and flickering. So I tried the more expensive Lowe's brand of dusk-to-dawn light controller which is designed for incandescent, fluorescent, or incandescent bulbs. It also failed to work with incandescent bulbs in both new porch lights. Instead of dim and flickering, however, the light turned on normally but only for about 8 seconds then off for about 8 seconds, etc. My last resort is I am now trying the Home Depot Feit 60 watt LED bulb with built in dusk to dawn sensor in the clear glass fixture. Internet research suggested the controllers may not work properly without clear glass. Won't know until tomorrow morning if it turns on and off as it should. Will post a good review for the bulb if it works. The next question will then be how long does it last. Retirement is supposed to be fun. This is too much work!!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Its worth the risk I bought two of these controls one for front porch and other for the front of garage. The one in front of garage works great but the front porch one does not. I guess location has a lot to do with it. The flickering will stop just leave it slone.

The inner piece that accepts a bulb was misaligned and broke loose when I screwed in a light bulb. Good product idea, but poorly manufactured.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Deal or No deal This sensor is so good, I have to return it to Home Depot. It turn light on soon after I installed it. It should turn on only when it dark and turn off when day light come.
