I have had one of these in my garage for years and it works like a dream. The light in my garage door opener broke shortly after I had it installed so when I open the garage door the light doesn't come on. It would cost more to have it repaired than to replace it. This little unit turns the light on when I drive into the garage. It saved me a lot of money. It works just like they say it does and I have an added bonus in that it turns the light on when I walk out to the garage. These sell on other sites for up to $48.00 plus shipping so this is a really good deal.
Terrific solution to a dark pantry. No more fumbling around for the light pull chain.
Great product for indoor use.
worked as expected in my hallways where the traffic pattern is well aligned with the detection sensors. This product does have some limitations in that it does not have equal detection capabilities 360 degrees. Make sure to read the directions an understand how to align / point the devise to maxamize detection of movment.
My children always leave the basement light on after finishing laundry which usually means it stays on all night into the next day. Now the minute they get within 15 geet to the washer and dryer this light automatically comes on and goes off auto 4 minutes after no motion is detected. I was afraid the dryer motion may set it off but it doesn't. Now I don't worry about lights in the basement being left on because it goes out itself what a great savings.
The motion detector works extremely well in my garage. It provides much more light when it is needed.
It works wonderfully in my garage and hallway so I don't have to turn on and off the light.
A member of my family was always forgetting to turn off the walk-in closet light. This product fixed that problem. The full retail price is $40, so I was pleased to get it much cheaper at WalMart, although I did have to use their free Site to Store offer and wait a few days for it to come in. It was well worth the wait. Also, this product comes with an excellent warranty. Some reviewers have had problems with the product, so I'm keeping the warranty information just in case.
The First Alert motion sensing light socket is used in the laundry room.So simple to install.Now I'll get one for the attic.
We have this in our garage to automatically light up when someone enters from the outside or from my house to the garage. I privately tutor students and wanted the garage to be lit for students to enter or leave my home, regardless of time. I tried a timer on our fluorescent light but with daylight savings time changes, students having unusual tutoring times because of doctor appointments etc, there would be times where students would be in the dark. With the motion sensing light socket in the ceiling of the garage, the light turns on as soon as a door is opened into the garage. It works great and is on only 4 minutes with a 360 degree detection and range of 12 feet. My husband liked it so much, he purchased another for our basement.
This is a very efficient way to light your walkin closet when you open the door--the light goes on , and when you leave and close the door, the light turns off--no switches needed! Very handy.
It has been about a week since I bought the product. It works well and is a good buy for the price I paid in walmart. The 360 degree activation helps. It was easy to install and use. Would recommend the product.
We put this in our basement. When I step off of the stairs into the basement the light turns on so I can carry the laundry basket to the washing machine without having to put it down to cut on the light. When I have a load ready to go up the steps I don't have to worry about turning the light on or off. I have enough time to get back up the steps before the light goes off again.
I bought this motion sensor socket as a safety need for my senior mother so when she walks into the bathroom a light would come on automatically. She has dementia and doesn't know when to turn the light on or off. I'm currently testing this with a small table lamp and it's worked perfectly, providing mom doesn't turn the lamp switch off. I'm currently waiting for a wall lamp and will use this is the same manner only out of reach. The sensor is quite sensitive. I can just reach my hand into the room around the door jam, no body or full arm, and the light activates. I think this should be marketed with safety products as well. Thanks.
The only problem is retraining to not hit the light switch in the garage when coming back into the house. Duct tape over it made it easier.
great product, works like they say, would buy again!!!!!
It's First Alert! Of course it's going to work well. This works exactly as designed.
I just wish it was a little cheaper. It seems that the manufacturer discontinued the product, which is a mystery. There's a market vacuum for indoor motion sensing light that are so easy to install and use.
It's a great handsfree device for our walk-in closet. The light comes on automatically when we walk in the closet and turns off in a few minutes when we walk away. No risk of forgetting to turn lights off.
Works like a charm in my laundry room.
Works great, but fries if you use energy saving bulbs...even low wattage. Two of my three flicker or don't turn on, the third one fried. Perfect for garage...extra light when cars come in, and automatic on when carrying (both arms occupied) stuff into the garage (e.g. trash, tools).
