Answer: 
I see lots of warnings here against not touching the bulb. However, isn't the halogen bulb actually encased within the glass outer shell of the floodlight? You can't touch the bulb. It's not like those small halogen tube bulbs found in halogen work lights.

Answer: 
Touching the bulb is definitly a no-no. But if you want a longer life, go with the lowest wattage bulb that still meets your needs. I have a set of same unit in bronze, going on 15 years with the same bulbs. I took out the 100T when done after 3 years and put in 50T from Walmart at $2 each.
100T wattage was too much anyway and the light traveled too far into the neighbors property.

Answer: 
Make sure you do not touch the bulbs with your bare hands. The oil in your skin will damage them and cause premature failure. Wear rubber gloves when handling the new bulbs and installing the lamp.

Answer: 
When installling bulbs use a clean rag or papper towel to grasp bulb and push into socket. Gentley wipe bulbs clean with the rag after because it is easy to contact them. The oils and contaminants on hands are known to shorten life on all hologen bulbs. This goes for auto headlights especially.

Answer: 
This is a 100 Watt Bi-Pin Halogen Bulb which is readily available at Home Depot. You will need to take the old bulb out of the fixture (please make sure the light has been turned off for a period of time so the bulb will not be hot) and take it with you to the store. Because halogen bulbs come in different lengths, you need to make sure you match the length of the bulb.

Sounds to me like the sensor is not working, or, you are using the wrong type of bulbs. It won't work with LED's or CFLs.

Rated 2.4 out of 5 by 67 reviewers.
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by The Good The Bad I purchased this light fixture in August 2009 to illuminate my driveway. The features were perfect and it worked well. I liked the first fixture so much that I purchased a second one for my deck in 2014. The second fixture was a huge disappointment; poorly made and literally ended up falling to pieces. Another big issue is that the replacement bulbs would burn out left and right. The original fixture with the original bulbs lasted about 5 or 6 years. Once I put new bulbs in the original fixture, they would only last 1 to 5 days. Since I couldn't get a bulb to stay lit, the fixture had to go even though there was nothing wrong with it. February 17, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by If you love changing light bulbs, this is the fixture for you I like the Dual Bright feature this fixture offers but the motion sensor seems to keep it from working properly. I dialed down the motion sensitivity as far as I could while still having it pick up a person walking by. It almost never went to the dimmer light level. I've had this light installed for about 6 months now and have replaced the bulbs THREE TIMES so far. And yes, I've worn rubber gloves each time and wiped the bulbs off with a clean rag. Last night, yet another bulb burnt out so the next time I break out the ladder I'll be replacing this piece of junk with something else. Hey China, thanks for manufacturing another junk product. Hey Home Depot, thanks for carrying/selling another junk product December 24, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Should have lasted longer The Dark Sky style is so important, I liked that. Rubber seal around glass face is weak and won't stay in place; makes screwing the shield back on well, without the seal poking out was tough. Have replaced both bulbs twice in three years and now won't turn off - tried all the tricks. So seems that sensor has crashed. At $50 and a tough (10 foot high) install, I am annoyed that I need to replace it. Replace sensor for almost $30 or whole unit for $20 more? Replace whole unit. Yes, I tried positioning the lights 2" away from the sensor. Didn't work. But good to know in the future. October 24, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great gives my family peace of mind Incredibly easy to install, easy to set, lights up the whole yard and senses the slightest movement by the smallest person animal or object December 30, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Very Short Life Didn't quite make 1 year. One side went out. Motion worked very sporadically after about 6 months. Just bad components. October 27, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Inferior Lighting Product I bought this light about three weeks ago as a replacement for the same type/make/model. I have been buying the Heath/Zenith exterior halogen lights for many years and have previously found them to be cost effective and fairly reliable. This has not been the case, however, since they switched over to manufacturing their products entirely in China; over the years the price has more than doubled while the quality has dropped off dramatically. The light I was replaced only lasted about two years when it suddenly started malfunctioning and would no longer automatically turn on (the only time it worked was when it was switched to "Test" mode). Rather than fuss with a repair, I decided it was quicker, easier and cheaper to simply replace the light with a new one. The replacement unit, however, started having trouble immediately -- the sensor would not trigger the light to go on unless I stood less than 6 feet directly in front of it and waved my arms. I boosted the sensitivity level to well above the 3/4 mark and reset the view angel almost completely downward, and this seemed to correct the problem. Since then, not only has the unit begun to exhibit the same problem again and not turn on automatically, but when the light does come on it first flashes briefly like a camera, goes dark, and then turns on. Needless to say, I am in the process of returning it to Home Depot to exchange for a replacement. If this next one exhibits any the same issues/problems, I will shelve using this model and brand altogether and switch to a higher-end LED model. November 11, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by TERRIBLE product! Don't Buy This This motion sensor light is TERRIBLE! The heart & soul of an outdoor motion sensor security light is the motion sensor and light timer. It should come on when it senses motion and stay on for as long as you set the timer. NOT THIS ON! It turns and off every 8 seconds no matter what setting is selected. Drove my neighbor mad and created real problems for me. When I turn on the light to take out the trash... on and off, on and off, on and off it goes. August 14, 2015
