Answer: 
These units are made to be hard wired in an electrical box. There is no 3 prong cord with the light. You could buy an extension cord and wire it into the outlet box and plug it into an outlet, but if the outlet is outside, you would have to leave the cover open and moisture could get into the outlet if it is wet weather.

Answer: 
Hi InNeedOf Light,
I'm Travis from The Home Depot.
This outdoor floodlight fixture is intended to be hard wired into a junction box that meets your local code.
No other method of wiring this fixture can be recommended.
Your solar light should have worked. Investigate the reason that it failed. That one may have been defective. Rain will not affect their performance.
Thanks for asking,
Travis

Check with your local city for electrical codes. Some city's require a licensed electrician, but may issue you a permit to install if you have knowledge of electricity. If you live in a rural area, check state electrical codes.

Hi Mike, the best way to answer this is, if you're not comfortable with working with electricity, or you just don't like it, then you should contact an electrical contractor. You should also check with the local city building department, for any special codes on outdoor lighting.
This is a hard wired unit, and you will need to power off the electricity at the main. You should also have a tester, to ensure the line is not hot before working on it. If you already have an electrical box installed at the location you want this light to go, then it is pretty much a straight forward install.
Again, if you're not comfortable around electricity or working with it, then it is better that you contact an electrician. Read Less

How do I get the light to turn off automatically?

Asked by
gia
October 14, 2012
I accidentally shut off the inside light switch that controls the electricity for the outdoor sensor light. When I turned the light switch back on, it automatically turned the light on. I thought it would have just stayed off until the sensor detected motion. The light will now not shut off on it's own either. It will only shut off by turning off the light switch. How do I reset/fix this problem so the light will work the way it's supposed to?

My understanding is that it is NEMA 4 rated which includes outdoor, wet and windy locations. Follow the directions which call for use of the included gasket and some silicone caulk.

Answer: 
These fixtures are designed for exterior use but coastal environment can contribute to the premature failure of any metal product. They do have a 2 year warranty. They are designed with swivel arms that will allow you to direct them in a more downward position to further shield and protect the fixture from the elements.

Hi ArtB, I contacted the manufacture of this product to get you a answer.
The manufacture stated this light is made for outdoors, and is okay to use in a coastal setting on a full weather side of your house.

Rated 3.7 out of 5 by 34 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Heath Zenith Motion Security Light with dual brite/alert flash This is an excellent product. Easy to install looks great works as advertised. The only problem it does not work with CFL Flood lights period. If you put CFL in this product the motion detector will make the lights remain on constantly. It works great with regular incandescent flood lights. The Dual Brite feature is fantastic, and the soft light selection is a bonus to make the lamp last longer. September 23, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wonderful customer service from the manufacturer The light works well and looks nice but I want to say a word about the great customer service from Heath Zenith. Our electrician installed the lights an a few days later when I went to install the bulbs I noticed that there were no lamps (sleeves?) for the bulbs. The lights worked fine but the fixture looked unfinished. I contacted Heath Zenith via email letting them know that it was possible that the electrician misplaced them (he lost parts for other light fixtures in the house) or they weren't included in the package (which I doubt). Three days after my email two sleeves arrived in the mail. Kudos to Heath Zenich! October 25, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love the added sense of security. We bought this light since in our driveway we had no lights. I would come in the dark with the baby without knowing if there was a person or animal in my path. I feel very secure now/ When I pull into the driveway it lights up the whole area. I was concerned with the brightness and neighbors complaining, but I have had no complaints my neighbor directly next to me was happy with the addition, it added extra security to his property also. We also like the sensitivity feature and that we can sent it for the amount of minutes we want it to stay lite for. I would highly recommend this product to anyone. January 19, 2009
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Junk Worked fine for about a week but now it either stays on constantly or blinks rapidly. After numerous attemps to resolve these issues as per the troubleshooting guide, it's going back. November 12, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Works with good sensitivity to motion, Was not satisfied with the range of swivel motion of the sensor. The light sockets swivel adequately. My unit is mounted high on gable wall over a doorway area. Can't swivel the motion sensor downward far enough. The sensor's shape bumps the wall too soon when aimed downward. My electrical connection box is inside the wall. If it were mounted on a round connector box, it might have room to swivel downward better. Used another, longer swivel arm to modify it. Now it looks and works good. August 28, 2012
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Just average Had to purchase a separate box in which to attach the light. One light post will not remain in place properly and therefore cannot adjust properly. The dusk to dawn and the motion sensor works well. August 12, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by failed right out of the box This item failed right out of the box. The clamp that secures the lamp housing would not tighten down. The reason? The unit is made of cheap plastic instead of the metal that my old one was. If there was a problem, the company said to contact them rather than the retailer, so I did. This brought to light a whole bunch of issues with the company. Bottom line: Don't buy this unit or any other product from Heath/Zenith. May 9, 2013
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Worked well for about two days then had to replace it It worked when first installed, after two days the light bulbs started flashing and would not stop, had a licensed Electrician wire it, they came back and check it and said the wiring was fine, just a cheap unit. I won't replace it with another model like this December 24, 2013
