how to you change bulb when it stops working?

You don't. You buy a new light... To my knowledge, Defiant doesn't offer replacement LED heads. You can try drying it out and see if it will come back on but chances are it won't.

can you set to off during day and motion activation only at night?

There is no need to turn off during the day. Check your settings to verify light is not in test mode. Motion is only detected in darkness unless test mode is on

red blinking light means light is getting power and sensing motion. Please check the bottom of the sensor and make sure the switch on the DualBrite setting is placed where you want it to function as this is what allows the light to be on at dusk.

My sensor is constantly blinking red. And my lights dont want to come on now. It will come on i. The test mode. Its worked well for months.

Clean outside of sensor really well. Power off sensor for a few minutes and then power back on. Mine tends to stick on after power failure. Have to power off then back on after 1 - 2 minutes. Sounds like you sensor is stained or drity on outside.

where can I get the mounting hardware including the part D from page 6 of installation manual

I hired an electrician to install it on a 25' high corner of my sunroom to illuminate my entire backyard when I let the dog out. The electrician got all the parts. The light works perfectly, is very bright, and solved our problem for "seeing around corners" at night. Good luck!

how bright is on dusk to down position?

This motion sensor was very easy to install on a recessed junction box under the eave. The sensitivity of the motion sensor works well and it lights up my backyard well. If you have an external metal junction box, the mounting base plate does not seal well unless you use a foam gasket (not supplied) and then use silicone sealant around the perimeter. Also this light is better suited for wall mounting than eave mounting. The LED lights have limited adjustment when mounted under the eave.

We bought this exterior light to replace an old broken one over the garage door. It was easy to install. Not only does it look better but it nights up the area better. I would recommend this light.

Worked great UNTIL it rained
Install was fairly simple. It’s provided a good amount of light. BUT after a few rain storms, now the light won’t shut off at all. Upon a closer look the sensor is filled with water. Seriously? How is there such and HUGE flaw on an OUTDOOR light?!?! I read the review that suggested spraying it with a clear rubber sealant. That review was written in 2016 and it is now almost 2020 and they haven’t made the appropriate improvements on this product yet?!?! Waste of time and money.

Hello,
We are sorry to hear that you had issues with the light fixture. As part of the install it is recommended to seal around the base of the light. If this is done and you still have an issue with water it is covered by the warranty. Changes have been made to the unit and testing has shown no issue with water when sealed.

Has wide angle of sensitivity and wide angle of illumination. Settings allow for just about any options you might want to configure. The LEDs are "daylight white" which is fine with me.

I Love the light output and the options on the sensor but soon after installing it, it rained and the photo cell/Motion sensor leaked and filled with water damaging it and causing the light to stay on all the time. It is an outdoor fixture and rated for wet locations. Another friend of mine bought the same fixture and the LED light enclosures let water leak into them and damaged them. The photo cell/motion sensor on this light cannot currently be replaced with a Defiant replacement photo cell bought from Home depot because it is made to only attach to this fixture with a snap in ball joint and has computer ribbon type wires that plug into a circuit board. The replacement photo cells are attaced by 1/2 inch threaded stems and a lock nut and uses typical wiring methods. This is a $90.00 light fixture. Photo cell/ motion sensors may only last a year or two. Replacement Photo cells/ motion sensors cost around $29.00. As of now if it goes bad you have to replace the whole fixture even if the lights still work. The packaging does however say 5 year guarantee. I bought two of these lights and so far I've only had water damage on one of them. I returned the damaged light for a replacement and hope the new one will hold up.

I am a diy guy and this security light was simple to install. The lights are bright and easy to adjust. The light housing is easy to remove and install with out disconnecting any wires.( After initial installation) the timers are also easy to adjust. I especially like the sun up to sun down timer. This is my second security light. The only thing I didn't like was the very small screwdriver. The handle could be a little big for better grip.
