Questions & Answers

will it work inside a light fixture

Will this device work if I put it inside of an outdoor light fixture?
Asked by: rene
If there's room for both the bulb and the unit, there shouldn't be a problem. I have mine in an outdoor light fixture.

I installed 4 of these. All they do is flash. Night and day.

Asked by: CS
Are they installed in highly reflective fixtures? Could be that the light from the fixtures is reflecting into the sensor, causing the lamp to turn off....

How do you know if it works

Shouldnt you just be able to test it by putting your finger over the eye.
Asked by: PaulLeB
You can put your finger over the sensor to see if it's working but this product simply doesn't work. The moment you put it in any sort of housing, hen it turns on, it detects the reflected light and shuts off.

will this work on frosted or hammered glass

must be flicker proof also
Asked by: boomer
It should work with frosted or hammered glass if the fixture is not in a shaded location... on overcast days they might stay on...

150-Watt CFL/LED Indoor/Outdoor Automatic Dusk to Dawn Light Control - Black is rated 2.2 out of 5 by 204.

It is compact and has a very pleasant look, compared to others that have a strange tube sticking out @@ As to quality, here is my personal experience: I bought two, and one works one doesn't. The one that worked is like a charm. I have it with a CFL and it has no problem, and this is like one month already. It lit up the whole dark area before my garage all night, just wonderful. After reading all the bad reviews, I got smart. I went to Home Depot and bought 5, thinking I will continue to test until one that works. Guess what? The first one worked! In addition, I test it on a home lamp before I climb all the way to the wall (haha). So, here is my statistics! I may keep the rest of the unopened 4 just in case because I do like them. :) ps-These things are short of stock at Home Depot and you can't get them on amazon. Go to homedepot.com and check the inventory on near-by stores before you go. Most of the time it is out of stock.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from It took purchasing and exchanging SIX (6) of these to find TWO (2) that work These are extremely poorly made and come apart extremely easily when simply twisting a light bulb into the socket. The instructions say to allow up to 15 minutes for light to cycle, once activated, for flickering to stop. The light flickered all night long. I *gently* twisted the light bulb in just in case the light wasn't in tight enough, but the inner piece is barely attached and easily snapped off.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Mixed bag First, the packaging should have a warning about overtightening a bulb. It's not like I man-handled it too severely (finger tight to me has always meant that I can't tighten it more with my fingers and I'm not gripping it, but in this case finger tight meant that I busted the interior bulb threads away from its contacts, requiring me to purchase a second). Given the mixed reviews, and the people here saying that it did work with a glass globe (2 people said that it did), I went for it needing a shorter socket style installation in wanting to avoid a wired button type photocell and needing to drill through an expensive light fixture. It turns out that if you've got too much reflection coming back into the photocell from a glossy frosted globe interior, it will turn on, then off, then on and then off, thwarting the entire purpose for purchasing it. I've asked a question to determine (as google is of no help) whether or not I can scuff my glass globe's interior surface with some sand paper or else cover the photocell with a single ply of tissue paper as a potential workaround to the light reflection issue, so my advice would be DON'T purchase this until someone with Defiant (aka Home Depot, it's their own brand) answers the parallel question I posted about this light tonight.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from After a few weeks, it flashes on and off instead... After a few weeks, it flashes on and off instead of staying on all night. I changed the bulb, tightened the core but it still flashes on and off.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Total junk - don't waste your time Needed 2 of these for either side of driveway. Right side worked, left didn't. Swapped out to test. Same result. Removed these items and put bulbs back in direct, both worked fine. Exchanged item. Replacement fell apart in my hands right out of the box. Went back to store for third time. Bought 4 this time; next one fell apart right out of box. Can you believe it?!? As I am trying them out the first one that worked starts flickering. Returning them all. PURE JUNK. Do not waste your money. Great idea if they worked, but they don't.. There's only so much time you can spend making trips back and forth to the store and the item just doesn't work as intended.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from On off on off on off... I installed this with a 13W LED bulb (75 equivalent) in a lamp outside my front door. It succesfully detects WHEN to turn on the light, i.e. at dusk. However it's so sensitive to light that the light coming off the bulb is enough to trigger the photosensor to turn off the light. The photosensor is pointing away from the bulb, so it has to be reflected light. The end result is a continuous on/off cycle every 8 seconds, no matter how long I wait for the sensor to "warm up" (as suggested by some reviews---do they think this thing has valves in it like grandpa's old TV?). A neighbor also has one of these but doesn't have the same problem. It appears to work perfectly. Perhaps mine is faulty rather than this being a design problem? It's going back to HD.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Sensors don't work properly Unfortunately, the other reviews about this products reliability are true. I purchased 2 units for exterior garage door lights. Because there is only one sensor, you are rolling the dice on whether the sensor points outward or inward (towards the house). One of my sensors pointed inward and did not pick up enough light to determine when to turn on or off. The other sensor pointed partially outward and appeared to work - but not consistently. Instructions say that you can turn screw in/out the unit up to 1/4 turn to adjust for this but I found it not to be true as it simply unscrewed the unit too much to even create a secure connection. I also tried this on a lamp post where there was a 360 degree exposure to exterior (no walls or other obstructions) and still did not get a reliable on-at-dusk/off-at-dawn performance. In the end, great idea but a poor quality product in terms of performance.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Affordable Dusk to Dawn Light Control I needed a way to ensure my front porch light came on at dusk and remained on til dawn even when I was not home. I had used a separate light on a timer and a Christmas light extension cord that included a dusk to dawn sensor. However this was affected by power interruptions and was not reliable. The light socket device allowed me to use a long life light bulb in my sealed porch light. If the power is on and it gets dark, the light comes on automatically. Soon as the sun comes up, the light goes off the rest of the day. Best of all: if you can change a light bulb, you can install this device. My only complaint is that the light sensor is not adjustable. On cloudy mornings, the light remains on until the fog lifts or clouds go away. Still, it is better to have a light on for a few extra hours than to stumble in the darkness because you forgot to turn on the porch light before you left.
