Customer Questions & Answers

If sensor not facing the Sun after screwed in a light bulb, the sensor may not work

so please make at least 360 degree sensor .
Asked by: Anonymous
I have two of these installed, both are facing at about 2 o'clock (12 would be the rear wall) and they are working wonderfully. One is even under a large aluminum awning. As of 2016, (when I'm writing this) they no longer have a ratcheting base. It doesn't seem to affect the photocell. I'm also in an area of the US which doesn't get a ton of sun. A+ bulbs.

How does it perform in extreme cold weather?

Hi, I live in NE Ohio, and, in the winter, the CFL currently on my porch takes several minutes to "warm up" and become bright. (It is not a dusk to dawn.) So I'm concerned that this one may do the same.
Asked by: Jaderia
I live in central Texas---it can get below freezing, but not for long periods of time. This bulb has worked year round for me.

Does this bulb work in enclosed fixture with frosted glass?

We are replacing porch and garage lights and really want dusk-to-dawn feature but aren't happy with the lights out there that come with it. My wife found the lights of her dreams but they have a frosted "Champagne" colored glass enclosure. She doesn't think these lights will work and that we'll have to wire and mount a separate photocell -- something I am not willing to do!
Asked by: SharksFan77
Mine work inside of frosted glass. They even work inside of a white plastic globe. It seems to take a little longer to sense when it's getting dark but still turns on before sunset. Haven't tried them with darker glass, though. I'm guessing that it may turn on earlier, but I can't say for sure.

Would these bulbs work on a covered porch? As you can see in the picture my light in under the porch.

Asked by: Nean
I'd be very surprised if they wouldn't work for your installation. Mine are not on a porch, but they are in very opaque fixtures under dense shade and they work fine. I suggest installing with the sensor (located at the base of the bulb) facing out toward the front of the porch to maximize exposure to sunlight.

60W Equivalent Soft White Spiral Dusk till Dawn CFL Light Bulb (4-Pack) is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 253.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best!! We have four enclosed craftsman style lights on stone columns running along the front of our house on the street. We had tried several different dawn to dusk mechanisms, namely ones that screw in between the light fixture and the bulb. Some worked marginally with a lot of adjustment, some not at all, some would work for a while then start flickering on and off. These CFL bulbs with the built in dawn to dusk work perfectly. Just screw them into the fixture and they perform. If it is dark and you happen to turn OFF the light switch that controls the fixture, just wait 30 seconds and then turn it back on. They will blink 4 times, then stay on. We are very very happy with this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for outside lights! I bought some replacements because I thought mine had burnt out (apparently it was just the freezing cold). They have been working for over 2 years now without the need of replacement - work well turn on at dusk and off at dawn. Love that I don't have to worry about forgetting to turn off the outside lights!

I have it in an outdoor lamp that is under an overhang and facing east (away from the direction of the sun setting) and it doesn't flicker. It throws off an excellent amount of light, without being harsh to the eyes.

The lights work just as advertised, even though one faces the wall, the timing difference between turning on or off is minimal. Great light and I'm glad I bought enough to consider finding more covered locations to use.

I have tried several other products and was very disappointed. I would definitely recommend. Feel safer now that the front of my house is well lit.
