Rated 4 out of 5 by 48 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Effective Motion Detector I purchased the First Alert Motion Sensing Light Socket from Home Depot a few weeks back and now have a month's experience. I am very pleased its performance and the svelte appearance. It is quite easy to install as it screws perfectly into any available light socket. Mine was installed in a garage ceiling about 8 feet above the floor and is used to turn on a light when the car is pulled into the garage. It has been 100% effective in recognizing cars and people entering the garage and has good range in both cases. For people, it usually turns on when within eight feet and often further. For cars, much further. It works in daylight and night. There is one issue: Instructions say it's direction can be adjusted for maximum optimization. That's indirectly true as the only way to optimize its direction is by loosening the First Alert Sensing Socket and rotating it in the ceiling fixture. In my case the amount of rotation was minor so it had no effect on the connection. That might not always be the case, thus the four star rating. November 13, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Would Not Work in a Closet Space I tried this unit in a closet space. Unfortunately this unit has limited to no downward sensing. The unit was installed on an 8 foot ceiling right in front of the entry door and would not come on unit I walked into the closet and waved my hand directly to the side of the unit. March 1, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome Product!!! Great item for dark areas to come home too! Not so good as far as price goes-I really needed 4 of these, but at $25 each THAT is too much... Should be around $10 each! March 18, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Proximity Light control We are happy with this proximity light control. It is being used in the basement at a poorly lit section. November 4, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by OUTSTANDING! WORKS LIKE A CHARM! My "LAUNDRY ROOM" is the hall between the main house and the garage. No light switch, only a bulb in the ceiling and a pull chain. I no longer have to fumble in the dark for the chain. I no longer have to find out in the morning that it was left on all night. It lights when I come in, and turns off after a few minutes if nothing moves. I'm going to use it on my walk in closets next. December 10, 2013
