LED bulbs will not work with this?

Asked by: Tim
We use our motion-sensing light socket in our walk-in closet with a 60-watt-equivalent LED bulb. There is NO problem with it whatsoever!

Will this work inside an outdoor enclosed light fixture?? We have several motion sensing outdoor lights that we are replacing and would like the new lights to be motion sensing as well. Unfortunately, there are not many nice looking light fixtures with this feature.
Asked by: TERRI
I also wanted a motion-sensor bulb to put in an outdoor lantern, but after researching many sensors (including this one) their reviews state that they will not work inside a glass or plastic fixture. I am using these in my basement with just a light bulb (no type of bulb cover or enclosure) and they really work great. We just step into the basement and the lights come on. without feeling around for a pull chain or light switch.

Motion Sensing Light Socket is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 359.
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.

The problem with this item is that I have it at the top of a staircase in hopes of it lighting the way as a person reaches the top, but it doesn't pick up the motion until a person has gone under and beyond it for a few steps. In our case, it needs to be more sensitive to movement from below. Otherwise, I think it would work just fine in a normal room setting.

The Motion Sensing Light Socket by First Alert is easy to install and easy to use. It does what I wanted it to do, which is to light up an area of the basement that is being entered via a corridor (the light is at the end of the corridor - the entrance is at the beginning of the corridor). The unit is being used in a limited space area with a florescent light fixture. I have a couple of issues with the socket however; The first is that the unit only stays on 5 minutes unless there is continuous motion in the area (it occasionally leaves me in the dark) and second issue is that it sometimes "stutters" when turning on the light - my hunch is that the motion sensor is controlled by electronics instead of by a relay (my GE 120° Automatic Motion-Sensing Light Control has a relay and behaves flawless). My preference is the GE 120° Automatic Motion-Sensing Light Control, but the space available mandated the First Alert which works fine for this scenario.

When I'm in the area the lights turn on. I'm in a old home and must reach up to turn the light on. I no longer need to do so and for a person who may be challenged height wise this sensor eliminates that problem, and perfect for use if you have children you don't need to worry if they turned the light off.

I'm allowed to return it within 90 days so I'll try again with another. Can't recommend this for someone who doesn't have time to fool around and replace a bad one. Good design, delivered product needs better quality control.

Excellent product, senses even the opening of the door and turns on garage light immediately. Covers all areas except directly under light bulb. Used it for 3 weeks so far with no issues. No more wasting electricity from leaving the garage light on accidentally. Turns off after 5 minutes without motion.

I'm using 2 in the garage to supplement the light in the garage door opener, one in the unfinished area of the basement and will give one as a gift. I'm using the LED equivalent of a 100w bulb in the sockets. They work very well.

Aligning the unit for best sensing took a little patience as the indicator arrows are on the top of the unit and you install it from below where you can't see the arrows. Marking it with a pencil on the case did the trick.
