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: Tony
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.

I love the fact that I can screw these in and don't have to worry about them. With the time changes and darkness comes soon I feel save when I pull up to my house and the light is on. I had try the attachment that you screw in and screw in the bulb, they didn't work. So when I found these I was excited to try them. A little expensive at $10.00 a bulb but I thought it was worth it for safety. They didn't last as long as I expected only about 9 months or so. They are still a great light to have for your outdoors especially during the short days of winter. I would buy these again

I had to find a way to have our outside lights come on at night and off during the day when we were not home. These bulbs are energy efficient, goes on and off when they are supposed to and they are very bright. I would recommend these lights to anyone who wants the safety and security of having lights on during the night but not have to be there to physically turn on a light switch. I could go on about how great these bulbs are but you need to buy them and see for yourself what I mean. They are also a great price too!! Thanks Home Depot!!!!

Product works great, no longer have to turn outdoor lights on and off manually which is a good home security feature. Even works good in enclosed porch area. The product is a little pricy would be the only drawback. Definitely would recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Philips Dawn till Dusk CFL Light Bulbs These lights are excellent! Just screw in, turn on the switch and never have to worry about turning on the lights at night again or off in the morning until they burn out after many hours of use. Plenty of light provided at minimum cost.
