Mine stopped after 1 day using a LED 60 watt light, this is the second one in 3 days. Terrible

Can it detect motion through a clear glass globe?

Probably not. Infra red light does not pass through ordinary glass

I had same problem as my sensor was facing the opposite direction of my door, what I did was take the two little screws out on the top of the light control, I then rotated it half a turn, put screws back in and sensor is on the correct side now facing door. Of course it’s not possible to do this if it’s screwed in to your socket so there is no risk of electrical shock. Hope this helps!

can this light control be used outdoor

Bought 5. Had to return 3 of them, as they wouldn't work in any of our outlets. Two did work - in all of them. However, one of those failed less than a month after purchase, and I don't have the receipt. Made In China Quality Control, so why am I not surprised. If Home Depot is smart, they'll dump this brand.

The motion sensing light control was just what I needed. I installed it in a lamp in my finished basement. When I come in from the garage with my hands full, it turns on as soon as I enter the room. I appreciate the safety it offers rather than tripping over something in the dark. Two thumbs up.

I purchased this in August of 2016 and it died in January 2017. It only detected motion up to 5 or 6 feet, which worked for what I needed - barely. I'd avoid it.
