MEDIUM C7 2-LIGHT BLACK OUTDOOR WALL MOUNT CYLINDER LIGHT
MEDIUM C7 2-LIGHT BLACK OUTDOOR WALL MOUNT CYLINDER LIGHT
We are very happy with our new wall mount light. It is exactly what we are looking for in the style and in the brightness. It gives us exactly the right amount of light we were looking for. It gives us the look and matches our Decour perfectly. It feels it is very well-made and will last us a lifetime.

Sleek and modern, all this bright light and only 9w of power! The light is metal that has a matte black exterior, built to last. You will notice when you open it up to install the bulbs (GU10 LED) it has soft waterproof seals. I used 2 4.5w LED bulbs that provide plenty of light. Last step is to apply silicon caulk to seal any gaps between the base and wall.

This is an unbiased review that is unaffected by the fact that I received this product for free. As proof of impartiality, just click on my nickname and see the average of the ratings I have given over 300 reviews to date.
First: This light doe not come with bulbs, so it cost me another $10 for two bulbs. I could not find them at Home Depot so I had to go to the other home improvement store, you know the one. It was nearly impossible to insert them into the sockets. These must have been made for an owner with very small hands. After 15 minutes I finally came up with a plan that succeeded. I dropped the bulb down into the socket as best as I could. Then I used two fingertips on the top of the bulb to turn the bulb. After about 5 tries, it worked. I do not want to have to remove the bulbs, but since these are not LED's, that would be inevitable.
Next: This light is specified to use bulbs no higher in power than 20 Watts. I used ones that are 20 Watts, the maximum allowed. The amount of light provide is pathetically small. Even mounted right next to a door, it does not light the steps in front of the door. This light must be meant for accent only, to look cute, not functional. That's a lot of money to pay for a non-useful light fixture. Fail.
Last: The top of the light is recessed somewhat and will collect rain on the top. I would not consider this appropriate for outdoor use. The instructions say you cannot mount this light horizontally, not sure why not.
The light is very simple in construction, nothing fancy or interesting about it. The price baffles me, especially with no bulbs included. Now I am stuck with it since, being a Seeds member, H/D does not allow me to give it away or throw it away. I do not recommend it.

Great accent lights! I installed them at the end of a dimly lit walkway next to the house. Installation was fairly easy, once I figured out which breaker the old lights were wired to. There is a easy to use mount kit with the light set, but I was mounting them into red brick, so a slight adjustment had to be made. The light stays cool for the most part so I’m not worried about the silicone sealer melting away, exposing the inside, like so many of these lights do. **reminder, get your self a fresh tube of clear silicone to avoid the extra trip back to the store. Concerned about the packaging it came in. Only packed in a cardboard sleeve. No other cushion, like egg crate or bubble wrap materials. Single light cell in the middle, not sure how easy it is to change.

This light looks great. It installs easily and instructions were very easy to follow. It really adds a nice classy look to your wall. It says 2-light because there is a light on the top and bottom. It does NOT come with 2 light fixtures! This is a great light to add outdoors for some path lighting or outside garage lighting. I recommend for a classical look that stands out! See picture below... please forgive the look of my house as I am mid-remodel. I only gave it 4-stars because it didn't light up. There was a loose connection inside that was easily remedied.

THE ARTIKA C7. Good looking fixture with a modern feel and an appeal that would look nice in pairs or multiples. Received this light fixture recently and ordered the GU10 lamps in an LED type. It would be nice for the lamps to be included as so many people will place too high of a watt lamp just because they can. I have other GU10 lamps lying around but the wattage of them is way too much for the rating of this fixture. The maximum output allowed is 7 watts per lamp. That is why I ordered the LED type as the output will appear much greater. This fixture is nicely constructed with rubber gaskets and clear plexiglass ends to keep dirt and moisture out. Seems like a nicely put together wall mount fixture that should stand the test of time whether we decide to install it inside or out. Will update after we receive lamps and decide where it is going.Thanks.

I just added this to the rear of my home and I absolutely love it. This bright lighted dark finish sconce was easy to install. had easy to follow directions and is easy to keep clean. The darkness adds a subtle warmth to my outside back door area.. This is also an LED which I have grown quite fond of. High light output and low energy usage. Easy to use all around.

Very nice light, looks better in pairs and mounted lower to ground. Installation was easy, until it came time to install the light bulbs. This uses GU10 type bulbs, so they have the two plugs on the bottom and you push them into the socket and twist. Not a problem, except the canister on this light is small, so I could only get three fingers inside to install the bulbs. This became very difficult, and I recommend installing the bulbs before you install the light (it's even harder once this is mounted on the wall). Otherwise this looks great. It has nice ambient features and projection both above and below the light.
Construction is good, all metal parts with plexi lenses.

This is a great light. I love the look of it, and it works so well. While it doesn't come with bulbs (so make sure to buy some with the light or you'll be disappointed!), the bulbs that are required were capable with dimmer switches, which was a huge plus for me. We're using this light near our fire pit to shed some light on the wood pile and on ingredients for s'mores and hot dogs and other campfire food. Being able to set the exact brightness that we want is very nice for this, as we don't want it to be so bright as to disrupt our fire.
I attached some pictures and a video of how extreme the difference is from full bright to full dim. Overall, I'm very pleased with this light! The only disappointment was realizing I needed to make another trip to Home Depot to get the bulbs.
If you're worried about installation, don't be. Installation is a breeze with this light, and only a basic knowledge of electrical wiring is required. All that's required is to connect two wires plus the ground, and then you just have to put it in place with the decorative caps that thread onto the bolts of the electrical box. If you're new to this type of job, the instructions are very good and can walk you through the process step by step.
