The SL-4144 is a four-sided New-England style lantern that includes a hidden motion-sensing device. This device will detect movement in a 150-degree radius up to a distance of 30 feet. You can set the light timer to one, five, or ten minutes, and the sensor itself may be adjusted to give you more or less sensitivity (so it doesn't light up every time a car drives by). The weather-resistant antique bronze finish means it's going to look good for a while, too.
This model also features "Dual Brite" lighting, which means you can use it for low-level accent lighting in addition to the full-light effect you get with motion-activation. An included timer allows you to set low-light mode for three hours, six hours, or dusk to dawn (an automatic photocell deactivates the unit in daylight).
If you're looking to save a little money on outdoor lighting by installing a motion-detector, this is a great option that won't look out of place. Requires one medium-base bulb of up to 100 watts (not included).--Josh Dettweiler

GLASS FROSTING STEPS (should go without saying, but be careful with sharp glass. It tends to be, uh... sharp):
1- Remove bulb.
2- On inside of light, carefully bend metal tabs away from glass (just enough to free glass).
3- Remove each pane of glass.
4- Degrease / clean the glass well and dry with a new, lint-free rag.
5- Take them OUTSIDE (well away from things you don't want coated in spray paint, like your car).
6- Place them on a small, sturdy piece of cardboard with a small gap between each glass piece.
7- Follow instructions on can. I did about 5 wet coats.
8- Carry the cardboard inside to dry.
9- Re-install glass after paint dries (~ 1 hour). Painted side faces INWARD towards bulb.
It still looks like new after several years of exposure to the harsh Virginia elements! When set to Dusk-to-Dawn, you can leave the light switch on and forget it. The dual-brite function is a really nice touch.
IMPORTANT! If you use a compact fluorescent bulb (CFL), only use a DIMMABLE CFL! Most CFLs are not dimmable, so when this fixture attempts to dim the light (by reducing voltage to the bulb), the CFL ballast dies! It happened twice before I realized the reason. Also, because of the way ballasts work, the dual-brite function becomes hardly noticeable.
Long story short after tinkering with it for a weekend, I emailed the manufacturer and got a quick response back stating multiple reasons for unit going bad. Coincidentally the email states that a power surge or a bulb failure could permanently damage the unit - something their own support website conveniently fails to mention.
If you buy this product, better make sure a.) your bulbs don't burn out and b.) your power never surges. It looks to me that the company engineers failed to account for those two factors during circuit design.
The only PRO about the product is that it looks better than those other motion sensing units you get at those major home improvement stores.
BTW. The other unit is still working... not sure for how long.
---- 4/24/12 Update ----
After contacting the manufacturer via email and providing the Amazon receipt they shipped two new units. Great customer service! One of the original units is still working as expected.
I'm such a dip that when I first had them installed and my husband was out of town, I could see from inside that they all of a sudden got bright late one night and I was worried that maybe somebody was outside. Luckily, it was just the damn cat, but I feel it is necessary to let a buyer know to expect that. I like the warning too that someone's approaching the door.
From the specs provided on Amazon I worried that the lights might be a little small. They were a little small. But overall, they really get the job done and look nice and blend in with exterior decor without calling too much attention to them. Some people have some pretty extravagant exterior lights on their not-so-extravagant exteriors and I think that looks bad.
Overall, these were a nice solution to our outdated brass fixtures outside with the added benefit of the motion sensor. Plus they were not so fancy that they make my husband feel like his wife owns him.
Another thing, if you purchase several be sure to inspect your lights carefully when they arrive. We noticed about a month after we put them up that one is crooked/warped. We didn't want to take it down and mess with the wiring again so we just dealt with it but we always notice now. Luckily it is one on the side that you can't really see from the front, but it's definitely better to see this before you install them!
UPDATE - November 11, 2013
Fixture still functioning perfectly.

Nice light, work as expected except that you can't use an LED bulb in them. They flash on and off and don't keep the settings unless you use an incandescent bulb.Published 1 month ago by M. HLAVINKA
