Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good as motion-sensing room-light switches. I removed the light sockets that came with them, and wired their sensing units as switches, to control the lights in my garage. Just one unit was adequate over the 9 metre length of my garage, but I use two of them, at opposite ends of my garage, in parallel, for quicker response when I enter. The usual indoor motion-sensing light switches are not intended to work below 0°C, but these units have worked for me down to -20°C, and are probably good at even lower temperatures. I put black tape over the light sensors, on the bottoms of the bottoms of the sensing units, because they are designed to be inhibited by even relatively dim ambient light, but I want the lights to switch on at any time when I am there.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Simply horrible. Curse the day I bought this. Bought this to replace a simple motion sensor light that had bit the dust after 10 years. Worked ok at first but never as it should. Light would stay on all night no matter which adjustment you made. Figured I'd just live with it. As it got colder it would start off in the dim mode, go to full brightness then out. But now that it is cold out (anything coder than -15) it does not come on at all! Nothing. Red lights blinks but nothing. Bought in September, wish I had kept my bill or this thing would be back at HD real fast. Won't be buying any Defiant lighting any time soon.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible! My 25 year old security light's sensor finally died so I bought this system to replace it. I hired a certified electrician to come to my house to take the old one down and install this one. After he installed it and tried to get it working he told me he couldn't get the lamps to work, but perhaps that was because it was full daylight. He advised me to keep the box it came in because he had a feeling that it was defective. He knew there was power to the sensor because the red light flashed, but after installing brand new bulbs and fiddling around with the "test" system for half and hour, he couldn't get the "flash" of light that its supposed to give. I tried it that evening and again the next evening - nothing. What a waste of time and money! They sure don't make them like they used to. This is complete garbage!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from No Instructions Bought this item and installed in June 2018. Like the large base to cover a poor box installation and that it was all metal construction. Instructions were not in the box and all stickers on the product were in 3 languages, none of them English. Fortunately, installation is straight forward and it was easily done. I like to keep instructions, especially for the settings, for future reference. Have spent 1/2 hour on line and can't find a manufacturer's source for downloading instructions. Everything Defiant comes back to Home Depot but they don't provide that ability to get instructions.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from defective range setting The light only works at the very lowest sensitivity on the range. Otherwise stays on continuously. Already caulk/sealed into place. Too much time and trouble to remove, return, reinstall.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good detection coverage Good coverage--seems to detect motion over a wide range.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Working well Works well. Mid range on sensor sensitivity for this light 10' above the ground is working well. Use smaller bulbs so light is less intense.

I cannot get my Defiant Security light to trigger on. Bulbs are new, wiring correct, red light flashing says power is there, works perfectly in 'test' mode. Trigger is sporadic but mostly inoperable.

Asked by: Doug
I’m having the same problem. Don’t think the these lights are very good. Change out the bulbs 5 times and each one has a new set of problems.

MANY QUESTIONS: Are bulbs included? Can the "Alert Flash Security" feature be turned off? What is minimum temperature for this to work? Is it 120W Halogen for one bulb or combined? Is the low-level Dualbrite level 50% of "full on" power?

Asked by: Snowman999
Bulbs are not included... I purchased 13 W LED ( = 120 W Halogen) bulbs, but you can put 120W bulbs in each side. I find the LED bulbs are really bright and last a long time. I have Alert Flashing Security turned off and I just set how long I want the light to stay on if motion is detected (Ex. 1 minute, 5 minutes, etc.) DualBrite® is a patented, optional feature that allows the light to provide low-level, accent lighting at approximately 50% of the watts of the bulb until motion is detected. Not sure if there is a minimal temperature, but I have never has a problem with these lights in Winter time in Ontario.

If I use led bulbs do they have to be dimmable?  

Asked by: Fixed
No. The control unit simply uses a relay, to connect or disconnect the power suddenly, as would a snap switch. (Even if it did have power coming on and off gradually, which it doesn’t, I think you could use non-dimmable LEDs; they would come on and off suddenly but okay otherwise.)
