LED works?

will this work with a 40 w LED using only 7.5 watts? I had earlier version which cost about $7.98 which DID NOT work..
Asked by: georg
It won't work with an LED bulb, tho it says it is supposed to! I am not sure it will work correctly with any bulb, more 1 star ratings than anything else.

adjust for dim light. does cutting the sensor tube back let enough light in to turn off under a shaded deck?

Asked by: mi
Not sure. If I cut the product tube, then I wouldn't be able to return it.

Automatic Dusk-to-Dawn Light Control - White is rated 2.0 out of 5 by 116.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME. This product did not work with two new porch lights -- one with translucen... DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME. This product did not work with two new porch lights -- one with translucent glass and the other clear glass. I tried several different incandescent bulbs (the only kind allowed) and all of them were dim and flickering. So I tried the more expensive Lowe's brand of dusk-to-dawn light controller which is designed for incandescent, fluorescent, or incandescent bulbs. It also failed to work with incandescent bulbs in both new porch lights. Instead of dim and flickering, however, the light turned on normally but only for about 8 seconds then off for about 8 seconds, etc. My last resort is I am now trying the Home Depot Feit 60 watt LED bulb with built in dusk to dawn sensor in the clear glass fixture. Internet research suggested the controllers may not work properly without clear glass. Won't know until tomorrow morning if it turns on and off as it should. Will post a good review for the bulb if it works. The next question will then be how long does it last. Retirement is supposed to be fun. This is too much work!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do not waste money and time Purchased two of these units. One was broken out of the wrap and the other did not work properly. Flicker with cfl and regular incan bulb did not achieve full brightness.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from DO NOT purchase this light control! Yes, the light comes on at dusk and goes off at dawn. What they forgot to tell me was that instead of getting 75 watts of light from the bulb, all I get is maybe 25 watts of flickering light at best. I plan to return this for a refund.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Wish I had better options. I purchased two of these. One is on a lamp post in the front yard and it works great. The other is on a sconce that is installed next to the front door, this one does not work because it does not get bright enough under the overhang of the house. Easy to install, just remove the bulb screw in the controller and replace the bulb. These would probably work much better if the light sensor was movable so I could direct it toward the sunlit yard. The only option is to leave the controller loose so it points close to where you want it (Not exactly a good idea with electrical items). I would not purchase these again and do not recommend them for installations under an overhang.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't waste your money Light flickers and is dim. I installed in an indoor light to check out and had same problem. When I touched the bulb, it would get brighter, but when I removed my finger, it would dim and start to flicker. Tried a second one and the same results. Second one is going back to HD. They have no idea how their products perform.

The sizing or threads seems just a bit off because its hard to get the bulbs to screw in straight and then they don't ever really feel "set" completely. On one of the ones I got the inner metal cup popped off as I was screwing in the bulb so it wouldn't work. Took that one back and exchanged for another... happened again! Tried once more and this time it stayed intact but I couldn't get both lights to work at the same time... could be because I'm using CFLs but at this point I'm done with these. Only bright spot of the whole thing is the nice folks at the HD returns desk.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Cheap Inexpensive DAWN TO DUSK The product with any kind of bulb did not function and dimmed the bulbs and made them buzz. They appeared unsafe and even outdoors the sensor could not turn the bulb off.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Cheaply made -- spotty performance Products performed differently (one from the other), and not from location. Poorly constructed. Flimsy.
