Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 139 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 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 out of 5 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
Rated 5 out of 5 by Philips has a Winner with this CFL Bulb! For years I have turned my outside lights on at night and off in the morning. I have stayed away from photoelectric light fixtures because the fixtures were either to large or wrong style for my small raised ranch style home. Then about 5 years ago I found these at Home Depot. They work automatically and fit in my small light fixtures. I JUST SET 'EM AND FORGET 'EM and always come home to a lighted entryway. One burned out recently which I had to replace leading to this repeat purchase. They promise it lasts about 9-11 years but that is at 3 hours a day. Since mine are on 8-9 hours a day, I got my money's worth. I am looking forward to them lasting another 5 years +. July 26, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 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 out of 5 by HUGE disappointment Bought these bulbs to replace the two on the front of my garage. The lifetime rating of 7.3 years is based on the light being on for only 3 hours per night... real nighttime is much longer. To compound the problem, the light will turn on 2 hours before it gets dark outside, then the light from one of the bulbs will turn the other bulb off. There is no way to adjust the sensitivity to my knowledge. I ordered a 4 pack and they were shipped in a single display box with no additional padding. I had one bulb DOA.... really want to take these back for a refund. A single light post out in your yard with a one year life expectancy for the bulb and this ones for you! July 23, 2014
