Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 181 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Does what it's supposed to do Great product for security night lighting. Performs as advertised! Great for 2 or more lights on the same circuit. Very simple to use, just turn off light switch, remove old bulbs, then install new bulbs and turn switch on. Your now ready and don't have to worry about ever turning lights on and off again. Also, this product will save you $$$ over time. Same light output as a 60 watt bulb, but only a 14 watt draw. May 6, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by love my dusk till dawn bulbs I am so pleased that I could order this product on line: I have been using them on my garage for several years now. My neighbors and I all like that there is always a light nearby that comes on at dusk and remains on until dawn. April 14, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cheaper than hiring an electrician I have two outside lights above my front steps that I have been wanting to have a timer installed on for years now. I recently booked a vacation and was nervous to leave my house completely dark for a whole week. I thought about calling my electrician to ask him to install a timer on the lights so they would come on when it got dark, but I figured it would be expensive. My grandmother suggested these light bulbs that turn on automatically when it gets dark and I knew they'd be exactly what I needed. I purchased them online and they were shipped quickly. I tested them out before leaving for vacation and they worked great. I am glad I bought these light bulbs and will continue to buy them so the outside of my house will never be dark again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Prayers Answered! Thank you to Philips and their engineers for a wonderful product! I have an enclosed space in a front door overhang and had not found a light sensor that would work. Your bulb with the sensor built in does! I had some trepidation as several reviewers noted that frosted glass (which I have) can trick bulbs into thinking it's darker than it is, thus staying on all or most of the time. But this bulb works perfectly in the space, dusk to dawn. I couldn't be happier! Just one question: is an LED dusk to dawn bulb in Philips' future? November 11, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Questionable life rating How can the life expectancy be 7 years on a dusk to dawn bulb based on a 3 hour a day usage?? Where in the country is it 3 hours from dusk to dawn??? January 27, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Simple as simple can be. Could not ask for anything easier. Don't have to change out existing fixture, just change the bulb. Works great. When I screwed in the bulb, the sensor ended up in the back. It didn't matter though, still worked when it got dark and turned off at daylight. 60watt equivalent bulb is very suffient. Hope it last long before having to replace. Will be ordering more. May 18, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by dusk to daawn Very few dusk to dawn equipment works because of the light being under a porch roof. This works like a charm. I have just purchased some for my neighbor May 23, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by THE DUSK TO DAWN CFL LIGHT BULB: OUTSTANDING SECURITY AT A REASONABLE PRICE!! This Dusk-to-Dawn Light Bulb has provided me with the much needed security and illumination for the front of my house without the need of an electricial.. It was a cinch to install and will give me peace of mind when arriving home after hours for years to come! I placed one bulb in the fixture on either side of my garage and they light up the driveway, walk way and porch area of a pretty large home. An inexpensive way to give the appearance that someone is home, while you're away. Another perk is that this 60 watt bulb only uses 18 watts!! I am sooooo happy that I found these Dusk-to-Dawn Light Bulbs on Home Depot's website. These are a MUST HAVE! August 26, 2014
