Great outdoor light
2 Sep 2014
By
, Yorkshire
"Excellent light, looks great, good build quality, excellent value for money. Only issue I had was with getting the main light onto the wall bracket, there's not much space for the wires.
Can't really comment on the reliability yet.
Replaced the supplied bulbs with 5w daylight temp LED bulbs"

OUTSIDE LIGHTING

"The quality of these lights are really good. I will be installing them soon and cannot wait.
I've seen them on other houses are they are Cool.
Would recommend these lights to lighten up your path, especially with the added PIR feature."

Good Light
14 Feb 2014
By
, norfolk
"Very pleased with this light, used a small strip of foil tape across the top half of the PIR sensor to stop it picking up cars as the light was mounted only 4 meters away from the street. I had turned down the sensitivity control but it wasn't quit enough. All in all a very good light, seems well made, I did away with the 35w halogen bulbs supplied and used 2 x 4w cool white led GU10's - looks very stylish and nice spread of light."

"Great light. Robust and well built. Easy to change the two bulbs (gu10's) so can downsize on the wattage.
Very sensitive, adjustment easy to do...All in a very good purchase.

Not a bad wee light...
30 Apr 2013
By
, Dunfermline
"Easy to fit
Default settings were pretty good (all screw settings were in the middle position out of the box). I only had to adjust the Lux setting to come on at the right light level (dusk).
Might buy another one for the back of the house."

Great looking but...
8 Jan 2013
By
, Bournemouth
"...a little fiddly to install.
I would recommend this light to anyone as it looks great, but I'd really suggest putting a bit of tape over the backs of the bolts before you screw the body to the wall otherwise they keep pushing through. (Which is a real pain when it starts raining while you're up the ladder fitting it!)"

"The up down lighting feature gives the exterior of the house a posh look. We have placed this over red bricks and the look is just amazing. It wasnt too difficult to fix, and the sensors seem to work fine."

Superb value for money
16 Apr 2014
By
, Berkshire
"Fitted 2 of these to a detached double garage front aspect.
Easy enough to fit but I would recommend making the fixing bolts that attach through the mounting bracket to the light captive before installing. This makes life a lot easier when attaching the light to the bracket. I used a small section of 3M duct tape on the back of the mounting bracket to stop the bolts moving out of position.
Setup is easy enough and standard fodder. I found the PIR even cranked up to maximum to have an effective range of about 5 / 6 metres (mounted at 2 metres high) which will be good enough for most installations.
They look great, nice construction and superb value at under £20 a unit presently."

Rust stains: fixings not s/st?
19 Jan 2014
By
, West Sussex
"Bought 8 of these for new extension. Replaced the halogens with leds (2w up 4w down). They look great and work well. I chose these stainless steel fittings to avoid rust stains, so was disappointed when 2 months later noticed every pair of washers and nuts on the front of the units had started to corrode, some causing rust stains to spread down the walls!
LAP really need to improve the spec for the fixings as they let down an otherwise great unit.
My local screwfix store has been great, giving me some free s/stl M5 dome nuts and washers to replace the ones that came with the units.
Long term concerns: how long will the PIRs last? They seem to be the weak point on outdoor lights. Also, if the wall screws are not stainless steel (as I suspect), how long until they produce rust streaks on the wall?
I'll report back if I get any answers to these!"

Good product - Recommended
21 Nov 2012
By

"Nice looking light and pretty straight forward to fit. It has sensitivity, range and LUX settings hidden behind the cap above the sensor and so easily accessed and neatly hidden too.
One tip is to pop some superglue on the plastic backplate and stick the rubber seal to it, otherwise it has a habit of coming off as you manoeuvre the light on to the backplate."

not bad for the price
12 Sep 2014
By
, Herefordshire
"Bought two of these to go outside the front of thehouse. Thought they would have a setting so that they come on as soon as it gets dark then go off at sunrise but not possible. Instead you just use the PIR sensor which detects movement. Sensor works ok but range is limited even on most sensitive setting, you need to get within about 4 metres before it lights up. Installation is a bit fiddly as there is not a lot of room to cram your cable into. Otherwise very well made and supplied with 2 GU10 35watt bulbs which I swapped for LED type."

Good but awkward to install
23 Nov 2013
By
, London
"Well made light fitting, but ver awkward to install. Very limited space in the back box for twin and earth which makes it difficult to install. The sensor is very good and car detect at a good distance.
Reliability is questionable, this is my second replacement within a year."
