I bought 2 motion activated flood light seven years ago. The brand was Remote Home.These sensors work with my lights. I really like these sensors because you can place them in various locations around the yard and trigger the lights. It's better if you locate these out of the weather the best you can. I have mine below the overhang on my garage where the rain doesn't soak them. The 2 AA battery's last about 6 months. I have noticed that when the temperature gets down to zero they may activate for no reason. It takes a little time to get the range and angle that works best but once you have them adjusted they work great. I had one in the tree pointing toward the yard but the rain got it too wet and had to replace it. They are water resistant not water proof. You also need to keep in mind that swaying branches or things that move when the wind blows may activate your lights so position them accordingly.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fred Very Reliable When Located and Adjusted per Instructions
Have had these on the front and back of the house for several years. The back, for the floodlights, has always been very reliable in turning on and off the lights when it should. Finally got the front to work as well with placement of the sensor exactly per the instructions. It was difficult to find a dark mounting location, due to numerous landscaping lights in the front, with the motion going across, rather than toward, the sensor. With proper sensor location, aim and range setting, the front door lights now work great when appraching the door from any angle. Thanks Heath Zenith and Home Depot for a great product.

I bought 2 of these sensors to replace the one I had. I had bought the original set - with the 2 receivers that screw in to the existing socket and one sensor - over 6 years ago. The sensor was exposed to the weather and wasn't working anymore. I bought 2 new sensors - one to replace the existing one in front of the garage (the lights are above the garage door) and I put another near the front door so the light goes on as soon as you step out. They've been working great!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by SCTexas Simple solution to difficult problem
This is a replacement for the sensor that deteriorated in the intense sunlight in the front of the house. This is a great solution to keep from having to rewire that light fixture which would have been expensive. The original set up of the full unit which included the wall switch was a bit complex initally, but once set up, has worked very well for over five years. The plastic lens cover is not that durable as eventually it drys out and becomes brittle so you have to be careful not to handle it when changing batteries. I don't know of a good alternative to this unit.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by HandyManHusband It worked well for at least 5 years...
My Heath Zenith wireless motion sensor began acting up this fall. I put in new batteries and thought all was well, but then realized that the light was NOT coming on at night when guests left after dinner. Put the unit in test mode and it worked fine, going on and off, to show that the motion sensor was indeed working. But it still wouldn't come on when we wanted it most--in the dark. The day/night setting (switch behind the batteries) would make the unit function both day and night, but I just didn't want the darn thing to come on during the day, so I just took the unit apart and cleaned the circuit board and used WD40 on the two switches, hoping that maybe some clean-up of their contacts would restore the night only setting. Not sure of the result yet, but will know tonight and will purchase a new unit if I've failed to restore proper function.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by JDHoge Battery compartment contact broke off!
I was really disappointed that the negative (spring coil end) broke off when I inserted AA batteries. I managed to make it have a mechanical contact despite this problem, however, and the unit is working. Given the brand name and the relatively high price having a basic flaw such as a battery contact that breaks on first use is inexcusable IMO.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Stuart Quick and easy!
I was worried I would be replacing the entire lighting unit and was not sure this was going to work. Thankfully the instructions were easy to follow, I actually read them before I started the project, and it worked the first time I turned it on. thank you
