Answer: 
Yes... but it may cease to work for no apparent reason at any time. I bought two for use in a standard outdoor floodlight fixture; one died two weeks after installation. That was with the floodlights installed angled downward and with the rubber boot that comes with the fixture installed to prevent any water from entering the socket.

Rick, I have about 24 of these in use at the present time. They should not be exposed directly to snow or rain the way you can a halogen or incandescent par38. They would be fine in an exterior can light such as under an eve, covered porch, or soffit where they would not get wet. It is critical that they have good air circulation, so an enclosed fixture or even a traditional exterior fixture with adjustable arms and a tight-fitting shroud would overheat the lamp and destroy the electronic driver quickly. They do put out an impressive amount of light, more than a flourescent par38 can. If you are going to run them from dusk-to-dawn they would be worth the electrical savings over a halogen.
Good luck, Matt the Electrician Read Less

When installing more than 4 of these 24 watt LED's on the same dimmer switch, shouldn't customers be advised to put in beefed up dimmers?

I love LED flood lights . The Ecosmarts 24 watt replaced my old fashioned and unattractive bulbs. However, when installed in a series and switching "on", LED dimmable bulbs need more than 24 watts, a lot more. I had 10 of these in my living room (25 foot + ceiling) on a single switch/dimmer. I needed to install a 1500 watt dimmer or lights flickered, throbbed, or failed completely. Now finally things are stabilizing. Still love them but people should be told if they're using many on the same old dimmer. I've even been told by the manufacturer that one has to multiply the watts per bulb by 5 and then by the number of bulbs to get the appropriate dimmer. In my case this was 24 X 5 X 10 = 1200 watts. I used a 1500 watt dimmer to be sure. I know this size dimmer is relatively expensive but so are the bulbs, so why would I take a chance? So far so good as I'm installing more throughout my house and all in a series of 4 or more in each room. So I'm upgrading the dimmers as I go. By the way, Home Depot customer service has been very quick.

Yes and no. You shouldn't have necessarily needed a "beefed up" dimmer, but you would need an "LED compatible" dimmer. This is due to the nature of how LED's and CFL's are powered.
Edison bulbs are simple resistors, they take in current and dissipate it as light and heat (technically the same thing physically speaking, but I digress), so it doesn't matter what the power source looks like, alternating Read More
Yes and no. You shouldn't have necessarily needed a "beefed up" dimmer, but you would need an "LED compatible" dimmer. This is due to the nature of how LED's and CFL's are powered.
Edison bulbs are simple resistors, they take in current and dissipate it as light and heat (technically the same thing physically speaking, but I digress), so it doesn't matter what the power source looks like, alternating current or direct current. Since it doesn't matter how the power is conditioned, old TRIAC dimmer switches were sufficient to dim the lights (the dimmer simply reduced the amount of voltage into the light circuit, and the bulb would respond accordingly)
An individual LED is a one-way, direct current device (LED stands for "light emitting diode"). Thus, to ensure consistent light delivery, LED's have additional circuitry to compensate for the fact that the voltage across the bulb is negative for half of each cycle. Most of this additional circuitry is expecting a minimum voltage to stay on. Since the voltage is constantly variant, there are periods of the cycle when a triac dimmer does not provide enough voltage to keep the LED circuit on, and you get flickering as the circuit turns on and off rapidly. Eventually, this ends up stressing out the control circuitry in the bulb (as I understand it, the actual light LED's rarely fail, it's the control board that goes), and you get light failure. The same is true for the most part of CFL's (different circuit, so slightly different failure logic).
Manufacturers have begun making "dimmable" LED's and CFL's, but if you read the fine print on the bulb, it will state that the dimmability is only applicable if the bulb is used with an appropriate dimmer switch. So to summarize, a long way of telling you you're right, but not quite for the reason you thought. Read Less

Rated 3.1 out of 5 by 49 reviewers.
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Great LED bulb while it lasts I purchased 3 EcoSmart LED Flood light bulbs 1 1/2 years ago and they worked flawlessly up until a week ago. The bulbs provide bright, even lighting over our covered front porch, installed in outdoor ceiling cans. Last week, one of the 3 began flashing. A Google search declares this to be an "error mode" ( seriously, it's a light bulb ). The "flashing" is more of a 1 second on, 1 second off, dimming on/off rather than flashing, but the point is, these should last longer than 1 1/2 years. I will be returning to Home Depot and updating review. April 21, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Fails prematurely, less light from more power at higher cost than alternative When first installed, they seemed great: bright light, comes on instantly. However, within two weeks of installation, one of two bulbs purchased failed completely. That's unacceptable in a bulb that costs this much and that is advertised as lasting 23 years. While advertised as "120W equivalent", this 24-watt bulb's 1,300-lumen light output is lower than the Cree "90-watt equivalent" (18-watt) PAR38 LED flood that Home Depot sells online at almost half the price of the EcoSmart. It's hard to see why one would want to pay more for a bulb that uses more energy to put out less light and that may last decades shorter than it ought to. May 2, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by High failure rate, replacements no longer available at store I love the light - bright, dims nicely, economical, and great color. Reliability hasn't quite held up to the "23 year life" advertised. This is based on 50,000 hrs, and I estimate they are on about 1000 hrs annually in our application, so the MTBF is less than 10% of the advertised lifetime. Purchased five of these between 2011 and 2012 and four have failed so far - usually by going intermittent ("strobing"). First three were replaced at local store (with receipt of course), no questions asked. However on the most recent failure, the store said this model was not carried any more, and I'd have to contact the manufacturer. Seems odd, since EcoSmart is a Home Depot brand.... Had to call HD customer care to find the contact info, so for anyone that needs it, the number is 866-527-0313 (also on the box, I later found). Presumably they will ship a new one. It's interesting to note that the replacement for the failure from about a year back did not have the one-second turn-on delay, and behaves a bit differently from the others when being dimmed. I'm hopeful this means the internal circuitry was redesigned to something more reliable and the latest replacements won't fail. March 8, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Light I love this light. Its bright white in color, covers a large area and really lightens up a room where the old 75W incandescent used to live. Then I tried a CFL, 60, again not enough light and rather yellow. What is it with manufactures manufacturing a soft white light that when used looks yellow? I love it C December 31, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Save your receipt The light from these bulbs is excellent. Very bright and warm, and there's no warm up time like there is with compact flourescents. However, their longevity has proven to be their weak link. I bought six of these back when they were close to $50 each. In nine months, three of them have gone bad. One quit working altogether, and the other two turned literally into strobe lights. I believe the bulbs have a decent warranty, but I didn't save my receipt, so the promise of saving me money has gone the same way as so many of these so called "money-saving green" items. December 15, 2011
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Long life, I don't think so Tim Purchased this bulb for my aging in-laws to eliminate the temptation of him getting on a ladder to replace bulbs. Purchased Christmas 2012 so we're at 18 months. It failed by changing to a strobe light, flashing off and on. We checked the light fixture and it is working properly. It has a 5 year warranty so lets say Home Depot honors a bulb without a box and the off chance the receipt can be located. Is it worth replacing with the same bulb? I would not recommend this bulb. June 12, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by bright led, high rate of failure I bought 16 of these for indoor use in hard-to-reach locations . They truly are bright, and out-perform any flourescent par 38 for light output. They see about 15 hrs of use a day, 7 days a week. They have been in use for just over a year now, and 6-7 of them have started strobing or burned out. Thank goodness for the 5 yr. warranty. I have had no problem returning them to my local HD store for replacements, just make sure that you save your reciepts, and MAKE A COPY! Home Depot reciepts are famous for self-erasing in less than 2 years, even if stored with care. I will not be buying any more of these, and may try the Philips brand that recently came out. Just too high of a rate of failure, which is common in self-ballasted, high-watt LED bulbs that don't have a cooling fan. December 2, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great product Bought the bulb at a deep discount.It is very bright and economical. November 11, 2014
