What can I say, this thing looks and works great. We have a side entrance to our house that faces our street and is the easiest way in and out. Coming home at night it was often dark and leaving the light on 24/7 did not seem like a good idea. We wanted a motion sensitive light but needed something that fit on our house build in 1847. This light matches the other period lighting we have on the house. The sensor works perfectly, lighting up when people walk past on the sidewalk and approach our house but not when cars drive past. It has other nice features, like a dim mode where the light come on at 50% power the first 3hours after dusk. There are both motion and photo sensors and the light is fully adjustable for sensitivity. I can think of anything we don't like about this light.

We have owned a number of Heath DualBrite lights, and though we like the idea of these lights and the looks, the long-term quality has not been there. Whether it's patio or porch security lighting, our Heath lights have consistently lasted only about 2-3 years. It's the photo cell that goes out on them. We're frustrated because there isn't a lot of competition for Heath in this market. We definitely like dusk-to-dawn and motion detecting lights, but they just don't seem to be something we can count on for longevity. We are now into our 3rd Heath Zenith SL-4144-NB porch light. Call us STUPID for continuing to replace them, but we just can't find another brand's lights that come close to the type of light and decor we want.

We purchased three of these lamps. They are easy to install and set up and are functioning exactly as we hoped. I would give five stars except: One was defective and Amazon replaced it quickly with little hassle. Unfortunately, the replacement had the same problem (light would be just barely on when it should have been off). This time I called the manufacturer and they explained that it was a malfunction of a "bulb life extender" feature that applies a very low voltage so that frequent on-off cycles do not burn out the bulb so soon. They set up an exchange and we got a good unit. In the end, I would say that it was worth even this hassle.

Love the look of this lamp and it updated the front of our house nicely. Unfortunately, with certain CFLs or even the oddball incandescent, it seemed to flicker until warmed up, or, at times, non-stop. Other bulbs don't seem to show this problem. It must have something to do with the resistance of the bulb and the lamp circuitry, would be my guess. After checking all the wiring and going through my closet of bulb possibilities, I found a good light/non-flicker combo. Don't know if this is a problem across the line or just with my unit. Otherwise, we love it.

We have been having security issues so we installed a spot light that has a camera in it.. anyway with that we have to leave the porch light on because the circuits are connected. I have been looking for a great dusk to dawn light that looks good and is affordable and this one fits the bill ! The only thing I wish is you could use the CFL bulbs but with it being a dusk to dawn / motion you can't which isn't a huge biggie pretty much I wanted to use my pink cfl for October ..lol

It does allow someone sneaking up along your wall to get all the way up to it and unscrew the bulb. If someone is just casually walking in the backyard it will activate due to the 150 degree sensor angle. If only it was 180 degrees I would be in love with this thing. Looks nice, and works like a charm. Has been installed for at least 6 months.

I had been looking for 4 brushed nickel lights for my house and could not find any at local big box stores. I came onto amazon and found these. I used similar lights in the past and was happy with them so I ordered 4. They showed up overnight thanks to amazon prime.

The old lights took me around 5 minutes each to take down, they were old and the screws were rusted. The first light I replaced all the hardware on the mounting bracket. Spent around 10 minutes total on the light and had it up and operating correctly.

The second and third lights I tried leaving the old mounting hardware up and found this light fit perfectly on the old bracket, it made the installation go from 10 minutes to around 4. I popped the old light off, undid the 2 power cables and ground, I put the new light up had them both working.

Looks good, quality is decent. The light itself bent a little but I was able to bend it back. I don't think there will be any issues, but it's not a stiff metal, if pushed it will flex.

Purchase 3 of these originally. All three have been replaced. Actually, one was replaced twice so I have had experience with 7 of them. The last one I replaced was outside the replacement window so I have to pay for it. That was 5 months ago. Now I am finding one of them is not working at all and the other two work sporadically. I will not replace with the same again!

The dimming response to the outdoor ambient light is a very nice feature and reflects the appropriate mood of that time of the day. Most importantly, the motion sensor engages when someone approaches in the dark, which is great both for security purposes as well as for getting that key in the handle. Great product, easy to install.

We wanted motion sensor lights for our drive way that didn't look like motion sensor lights! These are a perfect fit. You can adjust sensitivity and time. We have them set to work dusk till dawn, staying on for 5 minutes at a time. Easy to install!
