Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by BigDave Bad Purchase - Bad Photo Cells
We bought this outdoor dusk-to-dawn wall lantern for over our garage door. This first one we bought, the photo cell went out on it about 30 days in use. I returned the product to Home Depot for a refund. I thought, what the heck. Try another one, maybe the last one was a lemon. The second one lasted 6 months and the photo cell went out on it, same as the first. We are stuck with this one because it's over the limit on refund days. We took the photo cell out and replace it with a screw on between the bulb and socket photo cell. It works, but doesn't look to fancy. DON'T BUY THIS WALL LANTERN! It has weak photo cells that don't last lone. Once the photo cell goes, the light will not work until you unwire and take out the photo cell. Bad Purchase!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Judson Nice Upgrade
I installed this light fixture outside my garage about 1 & a half months ago & so far, I couldn't be happier with it. The light switch for this exterior light is inconveniently located on the far side of the garage, so turning it on & off every time you wanted light in the driveway was unrealistic & leaving it on all the time meant replacing the bulbs every 3 weeks. So, this fixture was the perfect solution. I leave the switch on & it's motion activated, so it comes on when I pull into the driveway at night or walk in front of it. I've also used the dusk-to-dawn feature when I was going to be away for a few days, and it worked as promised. Installation was a breeze, it's attractive, you can easily switch between lighting modes & it works like it should - overall, excellent upgrade!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Jack Dusk-to-dawn wall lantern, problematic sensor
My third lantern has failed and it's the same problem each time - the sensor fails after a couple of years. I'm convinced it's just cheap parts from China. Granted, the lantern does look nice and it's easy to install, especially after several installations. It's interesting to note that my first lantern had a lifetime warranty, but the new one's only have a 3 year warranty.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DGP52 The lamp was perfect for our needs!
The dusk to dawn lamp works great for us and eliminates the need to remember to turn the outside light off and on. It was easy to install, looks great and was quite affordable. I am not sure why everyone does not have such a lamp to add to the security of their homes and give them peace of mind.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by JS99 do not buy
I've had 2 of these for a while now. I've already had to return 2 of them and got identical replacements because the lights stop working because of the bad sensor. just a few days ago one of the replacements stopped working so I'm going to return them for the final time. the only positive thing with these lights is that they are cheap, but you get what you pay for. not impressed with these lights or Hampton Bay brand products.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 As expected
This light was exactly what I expected out of a light in this price range, very typical, nothing special...

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by BgB50 Cheap for a reason
The dusk to dawn photo cell fails every few months. Though affordable on the front end, they make up for in the long run at about $9 a pop. After a couple years the powder coating comes off in sheets

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by James Sensor went out a few months later
I bought two of these for outside my garage. The light sensor went out on one of these lights, and now it stays on 24/7. I was able to reset it by turning it off for an hour and turning it back on, but now no matter what I do, the light always stays on.
