Essential Info

Give your home added security and safety by adding automatically activated, motion based lighting controls. This screw-In, 150-Watt, outdoor, motion detecting lighting controller will automatically and appropriately turn On" your outdoor/security/perimeter lighting whenever motion is activated. It uses a built-in photocell to determine whether the outdoor lighting is needed. If it is dark enough to require lighting, the bulb will be energized when motion is detected, then will be turned "Off" after ten minutes of inactivity within the detection area. Motion will be detected up to 25-feet away from the sensor and can be mounted at a height ranging from 8 to 18 feet providing the user flexibility for installation. The motion detector attaches to the screw-in adapter using a ball-and-socket style, swivel mount. A swivel mount also provides flexibility during installation by allowing the sensor to be fully adjusted left, right, up and down; directing the detection pattern to wherever it is needed. Compatibility with almost every type of bulb (Works with CFL's, incandescent, and halogen), allows you to use this with any outdoor/security/perimeter lighting you already have around the home.

Note: Avoid directing the motion sensor window with line-of-sight of the light bulb. This can cause inappropriate activations during daylight hours, when light is not needed.

    I bought two of these for a double flood light ..thinking it was going to be great can't get them to go off after they come on .......grrrrrrrrrr why is that?

    Works great. Just screw in and you are done.
    Mark -- SF Bay   1/18/2014
    This looked like a great way to avoid rewiring a light fixture--just screw the unit into the existing light sockets for my outdoor spots. Tried it on an existing fixture with two adjustable sockets to adjust the aim of the spots. The device did not work. Next tried it by screwing it into an indoor lamp socket and it worked as advertised?!?!. Tried the device by screwing it into a second outdoor fixture for a spot and again no dice. The second outdoor fixture had the same adjustable housing for the position of the spot but only one instead of two. Both outdoor fixtures work when fitted with a 90W spot. I'm clueless. Can anyone help?

    I bought two of these for my front drive way. Both worked great for the first couple of weeks. It's been 6 weeks now since installed, one still works great but the other only turns on when you're less than 5 feet from the sensor. If both worked like I first received them this would easily be 5 star.
