The short answer is no. You must use the exact same bulb that came with the fixture. Be aware that some of these units use bulbs with a mogul base and some use a bulb with a standard base.

Answer: 
These bulbs are not interchangeable:
The reference to the 275 watt incandescent lamp is simply to show how much more efficient the Fluorescent lights are. All it really means is that if you wanted to get an incandescent bulb with the same light output as this 65W CFL, that incandescent bulb would have to be 275W to put out the equivalent amount of light.

That being said, the ballast is rated to handle a 65W bulb; you could put a 65W incandescent in there but it would be a small fraction of the light output. This ballast is not rated to handle a 275W lamp. The bulbs would burn out soon after installation. Read Less

Answer: 
As a general safety rule, always turn off/disconnect power to a fixture when performing work, even a simple task such as replacing a bulb. If the light comes on while replacing, the bulb can get quite hot quicker than expected. I would recommend at least turning off the light switch, and taping it in the off position if you have small children close who might turn it on while you're working on it. Read More

Answer: 
Turn the switch off. Replace the bulb and then when you switch the power back on, you need to watch the light. It should come on and stay on until the light meter calibrates and then (if daylight) it should knock off. That's how you know it's working.
If you're just replacing the bulb during the day when the light sensor has the power swtiched off, I think you would be okay

Don't think so ... the transformer in the fixture is designed to match the wattage need of the sodium bulb. My previous fixture was 175w and I downsized to a more energy-efficient 70w and the 70w would not work in the 175w fixture.

I have purchased three of these units in the last two years. one for my patio, one for my shop and one for a good neighbor. These units really throw out the lite. It is well constructed and easy to install. As a retired Electrical Contractor, I would recommend this fixture for any DIY'er.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from works ok, TEST IT ON THE GROUND BEFORE MOUNTING!!! TEST IT BEFORE U EVEN THINK ABT PUTTING IT UP ON WHATEVER U ARE GOING TO PUT IT UP ON, I learned that the hard way... several times. some of them are... non functioning out of the box. I think the sensor "eye" doesn't work right? and/or it gets glaucoma QUICKLY after a while staring at the sun so the sensor goes bad and (mine) stayed on 24 hrs a day in NO TIME (I put timer on them anyway so they go off before dawn anyway). the ones I have bought (several) seem to last 2 yrs TOPS before something happens to the thing, it isn't the bulb, the bulb is fine; the fixture/circuitry/sensor "eye" goes bad and it wont light up (or stays on all the time) so... it is no good and has to come down. not too big of an issue if it is 6'-8' off the ground, but if it is up HIGH in the air... it is a CHORE to have to replace something like that that high up in the air. oh, the shroud thing that protects the bulb DOES NOT LIKE WIND, the SMALL mounting screws that hold it on are ...too small, need BIG washers under them, but the THIN TIN that the "skirt" for the bulb is made of is about as thin as an aluminum can. the screws that hold it on are so ITTY BITTY the wind tears the "lens/skirt" thing off and then it hangs on the bulb... eventually loosening the bulb and it all comes down. they needed to make the lens/skirt/bell thing, that protects the bulb, out of thicker material so the SMALL screws that mount it don't pull through when the wind blows. it is..."inexpensive" and that is attractive, BUT.... really NOT a quality product... in my opinion. it works (mostly) but I expect ~2 yrs out of them and they are on timers so are on ~8hrs nite, not dusk to dawn. the little "eye" does not seem to like the desert SUN staring at it for very long and leaves the lite on all the time.

I have recently purchased two of these lights and they both fail to work properly. They are constantly going on and off during the night and cannot be relied upon to provide security lighting. The least amount of condensation will cause them to go on and off and any fluctuation in power will also cause them to fail. I have had similar lights in the past and they did not do this. I have tried changing the light photo sensor and that had no effect on it's poor performance. I would recommend that Home Depot discontinue selling this item until the manufacturer can provide a light that does what it is supposed to do.

Depending on your skill and area that you live in you can make this light last a long time. Note that you can disassemble it. Usually the high voltage devices on heatsinks fail, then the capacitors fail. Spend a few bucks for the devices and components (Look online or in your parts box). Use your soldering iron and your good to go. I highly recommend using the good ol' mercury vapor lights. The ballasts last long and photocell is replaceable. A good bulb to use in your mercury vapor area light: Westinghouse BT-28 Lifeguard 175w lamp;Life: 24,000hrs+. Get a older 175w bulb: 2006 or earlier, and get a new one: 2009 or earlier, then compare them. Hope that helps!

It replaced another model that wore out and I didn't want to repair. I installed it in the same location and the lighted area is the same. All works well at this time. I will keep a record on how long the bulb lasts. Now I want to thank the gentleman named Dale at the Home Depot located in League City, Texas. He was a great help in seeing that all the parts were in the container and especially helpful in locating the item, since this is Christmas season and stores have a habit of moving things around at this time of year. I had a chat with the store manager, Patricia, and told her how helpful he was. Today's date is Nov. 8th, 2016.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Lighting For the Price I will begin replacing my high pressure 70 watt sodium lights with these, as the sodium lights fail. I find that the light quality is much better than the yellow sodium lights and since I have 8 security cameras, the true color is displayed and recorded. The 65 watt fluorescent is about the same light as the 70 watt sodium, but better quality. I must say that the globe and reflector is kind of flimsy, so don't mount it where branches can hit it. Also, use flat washers when mounting the aluminum housing to your structure for a better anchoring. The price is very reasonable at about half the cost of the sodium, so I bought three to start
