[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I am one of those people who always forget to turn my lights off, until my light bill comes! I love this light because it comes on at dusk and goes off at dawn automatically. It is white and has two spotlights that are led and only use 19 watts!

This Bronze Outdoor Integrated LED Wall Mount Flood Light with Dusk to Dawn Photocell is a big improvement over our old motion-sensor yard light. It's a much more modern-looking fixture and the LED light source means never needing to replace a bulb. It puts out much brighter and whiter light than our old 150 Watt floodlight bulb.
Installation was simple and straighforward following the excellent instructions. The only problem I had was that I didn't account for a slight response lag when the light is turned on so I thought it wasn't working when I first flipped the switch on. The instructions say that even in daylight it should come on for a few seconds and then switch back off. I flipped the switch on while looking at the new light and nothing happened so I assumed I had a wiring problem. It turned out the wiring was OK and as soon as I blocked the day-night sensor with my finger, the light came on immediately.
This light is not CRAZY bright, but it is sufficient as a floodlight around the homestead, and, in my opinion, it has a great color temperature. It is a nice bright white color that stands out, especially next to a yellow halogen light I also have in the back yard.
I mounted three of these lights around the perimeter of my shop, which is 75 ft away from the back of my house. Even with three of these lights installed 75 ft away I do not think they made a drastic difference as far as light added to my back porch. The previous reviews were making me wary and thinking my neighbors would be displeased when I put them up. I consulted my neighbor whose front door is 200 ft away from the closest of the three lights and he said he didn't even notice it.
Installation was very easy concerning the fixture. However, I had to run three different sections of conduit and 12-2-2-2 romex cable by myself for my particular install, so I spent a day and a half for install. I did install them all to the same switch so that I can turn them off at night if desired. But mostly I put them on the switch so that if/when the photocell goes out (as many reviews say) I can still turn them off during daylight hours.
The photocell is definitely sensitive. Two of the lights are mounted under a porch roof and they turn on with about two hours until sunset. The third light is mounted facing directly at the setting sun and it still turn on about an hour before sunset. (I'm in the greater Houston, TX area for twilight references).
Hope this helps.
I've got to admit I was very skeptical about an LED light having enough brightness to illuminate my whole driveway. But I was sick of replacing ballasts, bulbs and photcells in HPS or MV fixtures I previously had, so I decided to give this a try knowing the longevity of LED bulbs.
First let me state there's no warm up time nor annoying transformer buzz from this fixture. It switched on instantly and silently and boy does it ever light up my driveway now! I happen to prefer the bright white color it has and like that it doesn't change color perception. The initial cost is pricey, but I expect to get payback in longevity and wattage usage.
To mount it over my old lamp's location I had to mount a weather proof electrical box with a solid cover plate. I cut a hole using a hole saw dead center in the cover plate to pass the wires thru to the lamp and riveted the lamp's mounting strap to the cover.
This is a very well built lamp and all the gaskets needed are supplied unless you do what I did, in which case the box I used as a lamp base had gaskets too. If you already have a box in your wall, you won't need to do what I did. My worktime added up to one hour, so it's a piece of cake!
Installation was a little tricky 20' up. But that was mostly because the junction box in my wall was loose. Otherwise this would have been a snap.
But it was all worth it when I turned it on after dark. Wow! I was really impressed with the light output. It lights up my deck and back yard really well.
I purchased this light to shed some light on a shed that sits behind my garage.
Easy to install, and gives off plenty of light with low power consumption.
I put it up September 19, however it quit working December 24th. Lithonia promptly sent a replacement. If you decide on this light, be sure to register your product and keep your registration number someplace safe. You might need it......
