House front security
29 Oct 2014
By Pabs58
, North Lincs
"Recently purchased & very quickly delivered, I bought this as a replacement for an older other make which illuminates the front door area of our house. Not being too handy with electrics, this was very easy to install indeed - simply drill the 3 screw holes, feed the wires through & connect!
I love the idea of it being pre-set & have no problems with that, it saves non professional folks like me a lot of time & stress. It works perfectly.
Reliability is a 3* as I have only had it a week, but it seems perfect for our needs. Recommended.

Good Quality Fitting
3 Apr 2013
By Colin73
, hertfordshire
"I install loads of these in my day job and they prove to be very reliable, hence the reason why I purchased one for my own house. As long as your wall is fairly flat & level and doesn't have any large bumps on it, this light will fit just fine.
There is an override facilty on this, and a walk test mode so read the instructions fully to be able to test it and know how it works.

Great - no settings to twiddle
29 Nov 2009
By KingJulienLordofTheLemurs
, Edinburgh
"I'm an Electrician that has fitted three of these with no complaints so far. Very easy to fit - no fiddling with settings like some PIRs. Although there is no adjustment for the IR sensor sensitivity, photocell sensitivity and activiation time this hasn't proved an issue as the factory presets are very well chosen. You also can't alter the angle of the sensor but again this shouldn't be an issue for the 'welcome' applications this type of light is used for. Flick the control switch twice to have the light on all the time (for 12 hours) Flick it three times to do a daytime walk test where the light will come on for 2 seconds at a time, after a period of inactivity the light will go back into normal mode (only active at night)."

Black half lantern with PIR
31 Oct 2014
By NickfromKingston
, Kingston upon Thames
"Finally a lantern that works. Easy to install no need to worry with adjustment knobs. Stays on right amount of time and seems very sensitive but not too sensitive! All plastic construction so should be weather resistant. Have only recently installed it, so can't comment on long term reliability but so far so good!"

Very good PIR light
10 May 2014
By ParGolfer
, Nottinghamshire
"Very easy to install. No adjustments needed to set it up. Works really well.
If you want a PIR light where you can adjust the time the light is on don't get this one.

Easy to fit
28 Mar 2014
By Cedarwooden
, South West
"The unit this replaced was two years old.
Not the best reliability.
The fixing points moved as well as the cable entry.
Lucky none of the old hole drilled were visible as this covered them up.
The cable entry and connectors were well thought out to make connection easy"

PIR and Photo cell Light
26 Sep 2013
By Daddyrib
, Northampton
"I thought a bit pricey for a plastic fitting. The plastic "glass" feels flimsy. However, there are no potentiometers to set for darkness or "time on", which suited me. That might not suit everyone though. Generally ok, does the job, but nothing to rave on about."

"Checked round and this was quite a bit cheaper than alternatives. Looks and feels sturdy enough, only time can tell. Easy to fit. No calibration available, but did not need any for its position. Good looking and good value."

Good automatic wall light
16 Nov 2011
By JohnBrad

"Bought as identical replacement for unit already on our house. Easy to install and works fine at the moment. I hope reliabilty has improved as two units have failed now (light stays on) after about 10 - 12 years."

Easy Installation
15 Jan 2010
By Ammonite
, Reading
"Have fitted lots of these Lanterns. They work well some are still functioning ten years on. Have had to return to replace some after a few years use due to the PIR module failing due water ingress into the unit over time. Have managed to drain the module, dry the PCB and reassemble they work as good as new. Manufacturer needs to improve IP rating of PIR module for five stars. In sheltered locations unit works great."

Basic lantern
7 Feb 2012
By SparkandPlumb

"Still working after 2 weeks...
Bit flimsy.
No control over time, darkness, sensitivity, anything.
Customer commented that it does not fit together perfectly and was concerned about it being weather tight - time will tell....

Poor quality
22 Nov 2014
By JoeAverage
, Newmarket
"Recently bought one of these to replace a none PIR version of this lantern. There is a marked difference in build quality between the older lantern and this recent purchase. The newer lantern is much poorer in quality and really flimsy. Also the PIR has been changed, so its detection field is narrower. The way the front fits on is really poor, you could probably pull it off with your bare hands if you had to. The old unit was more solid and overall better quality. This unit really is not worth the cost, it should be at least £10 cheaper. Shame really."
