Does it have a photo cell built in? if there is sufficient lightning already on, will the light still kick on?

Motion Sensing Light Socket is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 324.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Effective Motion Detector I purchased the First Alert Motion Sensing Light Socket from Home Depot a few weeks back and now have a month's experience. I am very pleased its performance and the svelte appearance. It is quite easy to install as it screws perfectly into any available light socket. Mine was installed in a garage ceiling about 8 feet above the floor and is used to turn on a light when the car is pulled into the garage. It has been 100% effective in recognizing cars and people entering the garage and has good range in both cases. For people, it usually turns on when within eight feet and often further. For cars, much further. It works in daylight and night. There is one issue: Instructions say it's direction can be adjusted for maximum optimization. That's indirectly true as the only way to optimize its direction is by loosening the First Alert Sensing Socket and rotating it in the ceiling fixture. In my case the amount of rotation was minor so it had no effect on the connection. That might not always be the case, thus the four star rating.

We have had this socket in the lights in our basement and the stairway down to our basement for many many years, just love them, so convenient, making our walking safe, plus was alerted couple years ago, by mice coming in to nest, their entering made light come on, when no one had entered the basement. Would never live without.

I placed it in my stairway going to my basement garage. The light fixture, suspended from the ceiling, is located near the top of the stairway that enters the house and is about 3 feet above your head. When entering the stairway from the top of the stairs, the sensor works fine, just as described. But when entering the stairway from the basement/garage level, the motion sensor does not detect movement (doesn't turn on) until you get about a third of the way up the stairs, even though the sensor is not obstructed from the full view of the entire stairway. It might be a great product in a different application, but it didn't work for me.

I ordered four of the First Alert Motion Sensing Light Sockets for use in my basement. They were easy to install and have performed well. They have been particularly useful in sensing the motion of a car entering the basement and turning on the lights to make the exit from the car a safer experience---no more getting out of the car in the near darkness of the garage door opener bulbs.

I needed something that would turn on if someone started climbing the steps about 16 feet away. But these don't activate until you get to the top (about 3 feet away) and start waving your hands.

Whether it’s the teen coming in a minute before curfew, or Dad who forgets to turn them off on the way to work, it’s great for where you want a light to turn on quick but not stay on all day/night. Works fine with LED bulbs.
