Product Description

Philips Energy Saver Compact Fluorescent 14-Watt Dusk to Dawn automatic post light is ideal for use in enclosed post light fixtures. It has a soft white light, similar to incandescent light, with a built-in photosensor to turn the light on at dusk and off at dawn. This 14-Watt Dusk to Dawn post light bulb replaces your current 60-Watt incandescent A19 and lasts at least 7 years.
Note
: Life based on average usage of 3 hours per day, 7 days per week. Rated average life based on engineering data and probability analysis where the bulb is used on average 3 hours per day, 7 days a week. Dusk to Dawn lamps installed in close proximity to each other can affect performance and cause on and off cycling.
Multiple Dusk to Dawn lamps should be separated by at least 10 feet. Certain fixtures with lower transparency can potentially reflect the light back into the sensor, causing on and off cycling. Do not use with dimmers. Some electronic timer and photosensor switches contain dimming circuitry, so before using such a switch, check with its manufacturer to ensure compatibility with electronic CFL bulbs. Do not use with emergency exit fixtures or lights.

I love the bulb... it is the easiest way to add the "dusk to dawn" feature to an existing light fixture. I tried to use the "add on" dusk to dawn socket to the fixture... but that made the bulb too long and it did not look right or function well.

I used these lights in two areas... one works well, the other does not.

On the front of our home we have two wall mounted fixtures with clear glass. No problems! These bulbs work like a champ!

Under the car port I have two ceiling fixtures with frosted glass.... these do not work very well and the lights end up staying on all day.

So be aware that the type of fixture does matter. If your fixture is in an exposed area with clear glass then you will love these... if you have a fixture that is not in direct sunlight and/or has frosted/tinted/colored glass then these may not work well... or at all.

I hope this info helps you out with your purchase!

I have tried more than one type of "screw in" socket type photo eye adaptors for CFL bulbs. This bulb with built in photo eye is the only one that actually works. They used to sell it at Home Depot, but don't any more ( I asked). I had purchased one last year for my back porch that works perfectly. This is one of the only places I could find the product. I also like it because the bulb doesn't hang way down out of the fixture like it does when you use the socket style. I will buy more of these for my other outside lights. It is affected slightly by the location (where the morning sun is) but still had cut off by about 9:30. When you first put it in, if light outside, it takes about 1/2 hr to go off. After that first time, it works normally. I am surprised that is isn't easier to find, a great product. Perfect for going away on vacation.

I purchased this bulb three years ago for my outdoor porch light. It works wonderfully--it comes on in the evening and goes off in the morning, however on cloudy days it tends to stay on due to the reduced sunlight, and overhang of our porch. Despite all these extra hours of use, this single bulb lasted 3 years without flicker and good light output (not dim). I tried to find it in the big box store where last purchased and they no longer carry it, and didn't know what I was talking about; they could only offer the sensor sockets which all the revues state work poorly with dim light output and flickering. So came home, retrieved it from the recycle bag, and plugged in the actual info from the bulb, and here it is! Will buy an extra this time.

We have two outdoor Clear Glass Coach Light Fixtures installed to the left and right sides of the garage door. There is a single switch inside of the garage that controls the outdoor Coach lights. After too many years of manually turning the lights off and on, I began searching for a solution that would not required new fixtures or modifications to the existing wiring. I was not searching for "Motion Sensors." I just wanted a simple solution that would automatically turn our outside garage lights off and on for evening and daytime hours (also accounting for darker days during inclement weather).

These Energy Saver Compact lights with "Dusk/Dawn" sensors have worked perfectly. Too simple. Replace your existing lights with these..., Done (when replacing the bulbs, for safety reasons, ensure the switch controlling the bulbs being replaced is in the OFF position)

I was initially concerned after replacing my old standard bulbs with these new "Dusk/Dawn" sensor bulbs. After completely screwing in both of the bulbs, the little circular sensor eye ended up facing toward my garage . I thought they would do better if facing outward towards the elements, and considered loosening each bulb just a little bit to try and get the sensor in a position that was more outward facing. I quickly realized that my concerns were a non-issue, and tightened the bulbs with the sensors facing toward my garage.

We have been through sunny days, rainy days, rain with hail, and hazy days. These Philips Sensor bulbs have not failed us. We now leave the switch for the outer garage Coach lights in the ON position. As advertised, these lights turn off in the morning and turn on in the evening.

After trying some photo-sensitive socket extenders in my outside lights, I can say that this Philips product is a far better way to go. It's approximately the same length as a regular bulb, so it doesn't stick outside the fixture or interfere with the cover. Since it is a CFL, it uses less electricity, and provides long-lasting and bright light. Be aware that the bulb portion rotates inside the base, making it feel like it is broken, but that is intentional. It allows you to rotate the bulb, once it is screwed in, so that the light sensor points out. I have three of them, one in my porch light and two in my driveway lights, and all are working perfectly and have been for months.

This bulb is a replacement for the first day/night bulb I had. We dropped the first one while cleaning and wanted another one right away. I went to AMAZON and had it in 3 days. This is a much better solution than a separate sensor.
