This device senses motion, but not really in 360 degrees.
John Lee
These lights come on every time as soon as I open the garage door to the house without having to struggle with full hands to find the light switch.
D. Parkhurst
About half the time it goes off after 4-5 minutes, but the rest of the time it just stays on and doesn't go off until I turn off the switch.

Our old house has the old pull chains for the closet lights to turn them on and off. Well over the years several have broke and I have finally gotten sick of fixing them. So, I looked for some other way to get light in there without hiring an electrician to rewire. Then I came upon this device and thought I would give it a try. I hooked it up in our main bedroom closet - you just pretty much screw in the device and then your light bulb. Close the door and 5 minutes latter: it turns on and off by motion - That's it.

It worked so well, I installed them in all our closets and the basement tool room.

Edit: Just found one issue to let you know about. You need about 2 feet clearance going down at a 45* angle on all sides for this to work perfectly (if that makes sense). So if the light bulb is right next to a wall or there are things placed right next to it; it will have problems turning on thru motion - you will have to wave your hand to get it to turn on. Overall thou I still think it works great and only had a problem with our one closet that had a shelf high up right next to the light bulb.

I've had this gizmo in place for about one month and I thought I'd provide a report for those who want some details on performance.
1. This unit does NOT have a light sensor; that is, it still turns on/off even in the daylight. The product description is silent on this point, my bad for not noticing.
2. The light stays on for about four minutes after activating; NOT adjustable.
3. Despite these quibbles, I am pleased with the key factor: does it reliably sense movement at a reasonable distance? YES.

I needed to light a 3-car garage with a nine-foot ceiling. There is already a duplex outlet in the ceiling; to test this unit I bought a simple adapter Leviton Mfg L10-00061-00I Ivory Outlet Adapter Bakelite Slimpak and plugged the whole thing in, hoping the weight of this unit plus a bulb wouldn't simply fall out of the outlet. So far so good (although I will admit to a safety string in case it comes loose).

So performance: the light works reliably at a distance of 15 feet..... the situation is such that I can't test to see if it works any further away than that. Interestingly, it does not ALWAYS detect my German Shepherd, but it triggers on humans of every size who are vertical. The nine-foot ceiling may be the problem here.
One other piece of info you won't find in the description.... the detection pattern is not completely circular .... it's shaped kind of like a figure-8 with a fat middle. This unit is marked with two arrows, 180 degrees apart, indicating the direction of the longest range. My experience is that this unit triggers at 15-foot distance, regardless of which way it's aimed.

Very disappointed in this product. I can walk in, jump around the room and the sensor doesn't trigger. I literally had to get on a ladder and wave my hand in front of the sensor to get the light to turn on. Useless. When it does turn on it take forever to turn off.

UPDATE: A second one works great out of the box (thus far). Judging the by split of the other reviews it seems to be a manufacturing quality control issue. Returning the bad one for a replacement.

After finding that the three linked lights in my utility room (which I always seem to enter with a load in my hands) would not work with a light switch sensor, I decided to try this device. It solved my problem and I am no longer dropping items as I struggle to turn the lights on. I appreciate this device even more each time I carry something into my storage area.

Bought it to use on my outside porch light fixture, which is open on the bottom, and glass on the sides, assuming it would still be able to see me through the glass. It didn't. I think part of the issue was the glass sides, and part was the height of the fixture, at 10-11 ft, it just wasn't seeing me. I jumped, I waved, and nothing made it come on, until I went back up the stairs, and then it came on. Not really what I needed, so I took it down.

I put it in my basement, as the ceilings are lower, and the fixtures are all bare bulb, with no glass surrounds. It works like a charm there. Comes on every time - no matter which way I approach it, and stays on for about 5 min after I leave. I think the 5 minutes might be a bit long, but not a biggie. There's no way to adjust that, that I could find, but I'll take it.

It is pretty big and clunky, and wouldn't fit in any fixture with a glass globe, anyway, so this is primarily a bare bulb fixture kind of thing. If you buy it for that purpose, I think you'll be happy with it. If you want it for a fixture with any sort of surround, or really high ceilings, I think you may be disappointed.

Bought this for use in a closet but it could not detect me entering directly below the light; sensor visibility seemed to be limited straight down. Subsequently purchased another detector with movable sensor that works perfectly for this purpose: American Tack (Hemco) OMLC3BC Outdoor Motion Activated Light Control
