Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Skippy STAYED ON CONSTANTLY DAY AND NIGHT
After the install I put it in test mode. Light came on and never went out after that. Upon scrutination of trouble shooting guide it tells you that if your motion light shares a circuit with a garage door opener, or fluorescent lighting it likely will stay on constantly. To find out I turned off the breaker to see what items turned off with my motion light. The garage door opener shut down, my "Fluorescent Lights" in the garage and laundry room also went out. Turns out there is a oscillating coil in these items causing motion lights to turn on and stay on. With the increased use of fluorescent lighting this could turn into a bigger problem.

The con of this light is there is no switch on the light itself to move it to automatic or manual. You have to do that through the light switch itself. Turn the light switch off for 1 min. to switch to automatic, etc. etc. Would much prefer to have the appropriate switches on the light itself. Also watch the minimum & maximum range as it can affect how the light works correctly. Through trial and error I finally got it to work the way I waned it to, but it could have been easier if it was not lacking the features that should have been located right on the light itself.

Light often stays on, the only way to correct this is to move the sensor up or down, mostly down away from the light. The heat from the light effects the sensor and keeps it activated. DO NOT do what I did and mount it 12 feet over the driveway on the house. Constantly getting the ladder out to make repairs. After two years the bulb has burned out, time to replace the entire unit! When I bought my house in 1999 I installed two flood lights w/ motion sensors, paid $20 each...they still work today and only have replaced 2 or 3 bulbs...old school is better!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by RiverRat Good Item for the lowest Price
Pro: Very easy install, low price.
Con: Motion detector is very sensitive, even at the lowest range settings it detects tree limb and leaf movement 20 ft away.

Great light. Perfect for my garage and way better than the duel light I replaced it with. Thanks Home Depot!

I installed this over my garage, replacing an old junky light with twin PAR38 bulbs. The light is compact and fits perfectly on a round external junction box from Home Depot.
The sensitivity is very good. This is a flood light, lighting up an area 30x60 feet very brightly. You could read from this light at midnight. So far so good, I gave it 4 stars since I cannot judge reliability or longevity yet.
The installation was very straightforward, it wires pretty much like any light fixture.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Oldgezzer109 looks great on my shed
This is a great looking sensor light, however this is the third one I've purchased over the past fifteen years. the first one lasted nearly ten years, with only one bulb change. The second one lasted about two before the sensor went out. I used it in manual mode, for the last three I hope the sensor, on this one lasts. in manual mode it defeats the purpose, You can get a lemon in any product you buy, so give it a try you might get a good one.

Picked up one of these at my local HD about a year ago to replace an old twin head motion light.
Installation was a snap, and the light worked fine for nearly a year, but the motion detector has stopped working and the light stays on 24x7.
I'm going to replace it with a Lithonia OFLM 150Q since I can't find suitable single head motion light (wouldn't buy another one of these, its predecessor lasted nearly 20 years and this one barely lasted a year).
