I bought this light for second floor under eave floodlights on a circa 1960 house. Works fine. However, type of floodlight is not based on house build date. You need to have a compatible receptacle and power support and decide if you want flood or spotlight. The nice part about the LEDs is they require far less power and generate far less heat than the old-fashioned incandescents so you are taxing the electrical circuits less than prior bulbs you may have used.
I don't know, I only use them indoors. I think water and rain is a bigger problem, they are not water proof.
Not Bright White!! Had to buy GE 120 watt bright white. DO NOT PURCHASE these expecting bright white. You will be disappointed.
A Standar Lamp Socket will work fine
I've had mine about a month and havent noticed that yet. The halogen ones I replaced definitely lose their brightness over time
That makes me feel sad for you. My experience has been quite the opposite. I have many cree led bulbs and none of them have shown any loss of brightness even after years of use.
Doubt it. And why would you when you can easily get a digital Leviton Sidereal timer switch that can do so with any brand or model of “light bulb”?
A couple of questions here, Did the prior bulbs work before replacing with these?. If so was there still power to the sockets. Also , if it was a motion detector , did you make it activate? If on a on/off swtich was the switch on??? I have these and they work fine.
I believe it should but can't guarantee as they are made of plastic, made in China. As a matter of fact over 95% LED bulbs of all sizes/shapes are made in China. My friend, you don't have much choices except to buy and use them just like everyone is using them.
