    the description didn't say that it wouldn't work with it up against a wall...therefore no good for my porch light.what a waste of money.
    WILLIAM -- mississauga, ON   4/12/2014
    Works well as advertized.
    PHILIP -- brockport, NY   12/17/2013
    Works great. I installed this in my 2-1/2 car attached garage. It hangs from the ceiling about 10 feet above the floor near the side door. As soon as I open the side door it instantly turns the light on. Also, as soon as I pull my car into the garage it turns on. Senses movement 15 feet away easily. If your having trouble with it not sensing your movement, make sure to put it above the area you want to light. If it's too low the sensing distance is considerably less. I first tried it in a lamp on a shelf in the garage about 4 feet off the floor and it didn't sense movement until I was 2 feet away. Hung it from the ceiling and it senses 15 feet away. It needs to be installed high enough to work correctly. Works so good I plan on buying a few more.
    TRACY -- capac, MI   12/5/2013
    This is a great item and recommend it highly!
    RICHARD -- jackson, LA   11/2/2013
    Put it in close and it will not turn on light unless I wave my hands in the air and stays on for about 5 minutes after leaving. way to long.I would not recommend.
    DIXIE -- castle rock, CO   8/30/2013
    I had one of these previously and loved it, so I ordered a new one for my new house. Due to the logistics of where I put it, I don't think it picks up the motion of the door opening as quickly as my previous one, but it still works really well in this situation. It saved me having to have an electrician move the light switch in this particular room for a ridiculous amount of money, and would recommend it to those considering buying it.
    JAMES -- mesquite, TX   6/20/2013
    works just like lite in frig. when the door closes , is the lite really off?
    MILTON -- columbus, OH   4/1/2013
    Works great in laundry room where we enter with our hands full of clothing to be washed. Also very handy in basement lights where there was a pull string. Now very little movement allows us to see if the floor is damp/wet without using a flashlight because the pull string was too dangerous to use.
    BOB -- portland, OR   3/3/2013
    excellent i reodered one that went belly up after over 8 years
    MARK -- rochester, NY   1/5/2013
    Great Product. Works just the way I needed it too.Put it in the hallway at the back door. Comes right on when I walk in the door.
    DIANE -- harwich, MA   11/1/2012
    We installed it in the ceiling of our stairway going down to the basement. It doesn't work during the day (too much light from the upstairs room?) but works fine at night. Will have to buy something else that works during the day light hours too.
    ZELWIN B -- kirksville, MO   10/28/2012
    This is my third Motion Sensing Light Socket. Used in garage. Great hands free light! Highly recommended.
    BRIAN -- gloversville, NY   6/21/2012
    Great product. The timeout is 4 minutes. I like this better than the other products that timeout at 10 minutes. Great for use in basements. Now I only turn on the lights I need not every light in my basement when I walk through to the garage.
    DARRELL -- sellersburg, IN   5/17/2012
    High quality product that turns on with any slight movement. We have it in our basement and turns on as soon as the door is opened. Very satisfied.
    LAKHVIR -- surrey, BC   3/22/2012
    Not as described... it was for indoor and I needed for outdoor use!
    NANCY -- veblen, SD   3/15/2012
    like it! simply screwed it in and it worked right away. well pleased with everything, thankyou
    PAUL -- new york, NY   2/5/2012
    This item works quite well, but in the areas I am using them (service areas of a NYC apartment building), the ceilings are high, and there are several entrances. Because the sensor field is not symetrical, sometimes the sensor doesn't "see" that someone is there until they are well into the space.
    C F -- columbus, OH   1/20/2012
    A great product, price and service. We use this in our laundry room, turning on the overhead light just as someone walks into the room. This saves someone carrying a basket of clothes the inconvenience of trying to hold the basket while fumbling for the wall switch. We love it.
    MILDRED -- midland park, NJ   12/10/2011
    Thank you for your quick service and the motion sensing light is working just fine.
    MATT -- o'fallon, MO   11/25/2011
    These work better than expected. Our basement is divided into 5 sections now as you move from one to another they turn on and stay on as long as you are in that area. One area is at an outdoor sliding door and unless you open it, it does not trigger. GREAT Product...
