Unlike old style units, the sensor in all in one in the housing, so it would require a circuit replacement not as easy as the old style screw in the top photocel sensor. So in short, no.

For this fixture, the lamps are integrated into the product and comes as one unit. However, standalone photocell sensors are available on homedepot.com.
Thank you for your question!

Can I mount this light to an electrical box?

I need a light fixture like this one (replace a previous one that resembles this one) but it needs to be able to adapt to a box. Is there an adapter, or another model that would accommodate this type of installation?

This is an outdoor light that can mount to a wall or post. The only other mounting option possible is an arm (OMA 24).

Customer Reviews

Rated 2.7 out of 5 by 10 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Attractive light, but might be defective. Keep the box! We bought three lights for the exterior of a two-story apartment building. The lights were supposed to operate from dusk to dawn. However, after about two weeks, one light stayed on continuously. Fortunately, we had kept the box and receipt, and returned the defective light for another one with no problem. Unfortunately, we had to pay our electrician for an extra visit to replace the defective light with a new one. The lights look great now and have all been working well ever since (the original installation happened about five months ago), but hold on to the receipt and box just in case. February 25, 2012
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Nice unit, good light output, fails to easily Replaced my driveway light of 15 years with this one, worried about the lower 65w bulb but gives bright light. Then the unit failed 2-3 weeks later. So HD replaced it. Easy enough to install, and thus swap out. Then it failed again 45-60 days later. Called Lithonia and told how to do a hard reset, worked (cut power, remove bulb for 1 minute, replace bulb, apply power, all during daylight hours for sensor to adjust). Now a year later, this one is dead. Is being replaced. As they say, "they don't make them like they used to". My original unit had maybe 3 bulbs and 2 photo cell replacements in 15 years. This one needs a new a design replacement on the circuits, because when it works, it's good light for my driveway, but when it fails, it's dead. June 5, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great lighting product Lightweight and easy to install. The output from the fluorescent lamp was much more than the old mercury vapor unit it replaced. October 28, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Works Terrible in Cold Weather I live in Michigan and durring the cold weather this lite barely lights up. It works in the warmer weather but anything under 30 degrees it's usless. January 27, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by bought 2 burned out in a few months, do not waste you re money. do not waste you re money on this item. terrible item has a circuit board inside that apperantly was not tested before they designed it. January 23, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This product does a job of lighting things up. Easy to install . Great light for the money. Lights up the whole back of house January 19, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by no good bought this light in march of 2013 and it is now dec 2013 and it does not work will not buy another one December 16, 2013
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Update on my review below It turned out that the circuitry inside the fixture is faulty. Not able to handle the load of the 300W CFL bulb. Thats why they last only a couple of months, or the circuitry burns out (like mine) immediately. May 15, 2012
