Please take the time to read the instructions before you start your easy home improvement. When you are ready to be frustrated by this product proceed to install the Dusk-to-Dawn light control. If you're lucky it will work and you can feel happy the rest of the day. If you install your light control device and it turns on in the middle of the day, have fun taking the light out and installing the attachments that are included. When you find that didn't work, go online and read all the frustrated customer comments from people like you who have also been frustrated by this product. Take everything out and replace the light bulb as before you started your project. Take your receipt and Dusk-to-Dawn back to the store and get a refund. While your at the store, buy some flowers to make yourself feel happy since you just wasted several hours of your day.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from OK product, horirble instructions I'm noticing that the bad reviews often say that the light never goes off. I also had this problem. I found out by accident that the "flicker free" cap comes off (I thought I had broken it). When It's off (as mentioned by another consumer) the unit is more light sensitive, and when aimed at the sun the unit works pretty much as advertised. One wonders why the silly thing is sold without explaining how to make it work in lower light situations. It's cheap, but surely someone in China can write "Take the stupid cap off" on the packaging...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No brainer... Pays for itself Install it, turn on the light switch and forget it. It takes care of itself, you and your property. Definitely helps to provide a safe environment at night. This product works great and literally pays for itself in just a couple of months. An excellent buy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 1 of 3 bad for me One of 3 didn't work and had to be returned, but once that one was swapped out they seem to work well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from READ the INSTRUCTIONS! Bought 8 of these. Will by 4 more soon. All work great...BUT...upon installation you need to leave them on for at least 15 minutes to "cycle" as the instructions say. I'm thinking that perhaps the problems people are having, is because they didn't let them go through the full cycle process. Also, the "flicker free" nozzle is removable and makes the unit more light sensitive if you need it to be. I followed the instructions on all of mine and they are just the absolute best.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from inconsistent but good enough for now It's a relatively inexpensive "fix" to change an existing fixture to one that automatically turns on and off with dusk and light. I have it on a ceiling mounted fixture on a covered porch. It isn't super consistent about when it turns on o off. It usually switches on/off a little later than when the light in the sky starts to fade or rise. I think it might be because of the eaves on the porch and where I have the fixture mounted. But its good enough for now. If you are considering this item, make sure your fixture and shade is deep enough to allow for the light bulb to extend out another inch or more after you attach the device.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Stays lit even during a bright sunny day The light stays on well past dawn. I have seen it turn off, but the sensor is not nearly sensitive enough (even with the cover removed) to be useful. Additionally, it adds some height to the bulb, which may be a problem if your light fixture doesn't have the extra head room or blocks too much of the light from the bulb.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from bad product Will not turn off during day time. Photo sensor is not working. No stars given for this product. This is the 2nd one that didn't work. Took 1st one back to get this on that does the same thing.
