Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Summrbrz Not so great for a double globe light fixture
Doesn't work too well in a double globe fixture. The light from one side makes the other side think it's daylight, thus it doesn't come on... Works great in single fixtures however.

I so want to love these bulbs but they simply don't work for me. I have 2; one on each side of my front garage door. They come on at dusk, then immediately go off as their own light tells them it's daylight, then on again as it is dark. This on-off-on happens about 5 times and then they stay On. But periodically one or the other goes off again. Then back on. Yikes, these bulbs are confused!! Our light fixtures have a white "globe" so I can imagine this happening but, really, Philips should have anticipated this. These bulbs are not inexpensive and I really dread having to wire in a dusk-dawn sensor but looks like that will be required.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Buckeyemom Reliable, bright, adds safety and security!
We have added adapters in our outside light fixtures, but one was inclosed and upright and we could not find an adapter that would work. We reluctantly tried this light bulb with built in sensor due to price and past failed attempts with other products and are very pleased with it. The light turns on and off as expected. We don't have to worry about turning a light on/off before we leave or coming home in the dark! A little costly, hoping it will last several months, but well worth the peace of mind and added security.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by DIYMan Didn't shut off
This bulb never shut off during the daytime. I tried untwisting it and putting it in at different start points. I even cleaned off the lamp glass panels thinking it may be blocking the dawn to dusk sensor from working. It never turned off on its own. Finally I returned it and bought another one at Home Depot. The new one has worked perfectly. I guess the original one was defective.

Works great. No worry about a dark entrance when returning late or high bill because light stays on all the time

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Alphie Does the job as advertised
While the dusk/dawn control is reliable, I can't say the same for longevity. I'm on my 4th bulb in my driveway post in 2 years. I use another indoors in an enclosed extension room & it lasts a little longer. However, the one at the front door is well over a year old & still going strong.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by DZLangel Oddly inconsistent
Had great luck with these in the past, but one went out right away, and the next is really acting funny. Sometimes doesn't go on, sometimes flashes. Very odd. Really defeats the safety purpose of these light bulbs. So really disappointed this time. If you wanted to send replacement bulbs, that would be great. We've tossed the bad ones. Just disappointed.
