CFL Dusk to Dawn Light Bulbs
5 Star Review   By DLML on Home Depot - May 28, 2013    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

These were just what I was looking for - a bulb that will fit an enclosed outdoor light fixture that will allow the lights to come on at dusk and off at dawn so I can turn the lights on and know they won't be on all day so everyone knows you're gone, but will be on at night when I come hope or when I'm away. So far, so good. Ordered on line and picked up in store.

Pleased with Dusk to Dawn Light Bulbs
5 Star Review   By mchl on Home Depot - May 21, 2013    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

I am very pleased with the light bulbs I purchased. Home Depot was one of two places I found online where you could purchase the light bulb that came with a built-in light sensor. Home Depot had the best price. I am using three on the outside of my garage. They all work like a charm.

Dusk to dawn light bulbs
4 Star Review   By Bill on Home Depot - May 8, 2013    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

Really like these units. Wanted dusk to dawn lights for outside front porch and back door. Tried several screw-in units but they were all unsatisfactory performers.These units are compact and easy to install. Fits within current frosted chimneys. Just screw in and adjust swivel base for photocell. Come on a little early and stay on a little long; nevertheless, I accept this.

5 Star Review   By HandyMan45657 on Home Depot - May 8, 2013    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

I've had four of these on the garage and front porch since March and haven't had an issue yet. They sometimes fake me out, as the two on the garage come on at different slightly times (even though they're only 9' apart). But, they come on when it's dark, so that's all that counts. Highly recommend.

So far these bulbs work as claimed. I installed 8 at our Church entrance doors. Even one installed under a portico in a housing with translucent glass works as claimed. It does respond alittle slower then those exposed to more direct light. Good product. Good price. Great energy saver.

Good dusk-to-dawn light bulb
4 Star Review   By John on Home Depot - Mar 28, 2013    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

This is a great light bulb if it isn't feasible to install a dusk to dawn light fixture. The base of the bulb can be turned to point the sensor towards the sun. The bulb seems to come on earlier and stay on later than it has to, so it will probably be on for 12 hours a day. It would be nice if the light sensor's sensitivity level could be adjusted. Don't believe the 'it lasts 7 years' line since that is based on 3 hours of daily use, which obviously is absurd since this is a dusk to dawn light bulb. Overall, it is a good value for the money and works pretty well.

Work Great
5 Star Review   By Brian on Home Depot - Feb 22, 2013    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

I've been using them for the past 2-3 years. As long as the sensor is rotated to the general direction of the sun they turn off during the daylight hours. They had stopped offering them in store and I was happy to find them in 4 pack online. I hope they continue to make them available. I had one finally die (of 3), but it lasted through the min life expectancy.

Good product, but could be better
4 Star Review   By ColoradoMama on Home Depot - Feb 12, 2013    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

We wanted these for our front porch....so that they would come on automatically when we are out of town. They work well, once you figure out exactly where to aim the sensor. Since the sensor can not be adjusted, they tend to be on more than we would like since our house faces north, and they are under a covered porch. This is the only complaint we have, otherwise great product.

5 Star Review   By HappyRetiree on Home Depot - Feb 5, 2013    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

I have an enclosed light fixture on each side of the front entrance door, and wanted to have the convenience of dusk-to-dawn light. I tried using a separate screw-in sensor, but it and the bulb together were too long for the enclosed space. These bulbs with built-in sensor are very compact, and so far are working great. On heavily overcast days they stay on a little longer than would be ideal, but overall a great solution.

Reliable Nighttime Security
5 Star Review   By Dave on Home Depot - Jan 22, 2013    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

I originally purchased a "dusk-to-dawn" bulb two years ago, and it has been operating every night as advertised - on at dusk, off at dawn. It features a sensor that can be turned toward the brightest daylight source once the bulb is installed in the lamp socket. This new bulb just purchased will be used as its replacement, if and when the original ever burns out!

5 Star Review   By mozart on Home Depot - Dec 26, 2012    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

I am amazed at this product's brightness. This bulb is comparable to the 60W incandescent bulb; however, it has a much more brilliant, clean look to it. I have replaced both of my porch light bulbs and sensors with this one product. The bulbs were just intalled last month so I will be keeping track of their "shelf life." Great product!!

I was not able to get these lights to work. They stayed on all the time. I even tried to point the lamp directly at the window, but it still stayed on. I kept both light bulbs as they are good bulbs and very bright, but the sensor function did not work at all for me.

Installed in all outside lamps and they are effective and functional. Cost for 6 bulbs was half the cost of one new dusk to dawn lamp fixture. I think that was a good deal

CFLs that work in the cold automatically
5 Star Review   By Allan on Home Depot - Oct 20, 2012    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

Bought a pair of these on a clearance rack for $7 each. Read the specs on them and they said they were good down to 20* so I figured they would work at least 90% of the time for outside my garage. They fit where my existing regular bulbs did and have been working great since installation. Only issue I had is when I first installed them I just screwed them in until snug but that left one light sensor (which is on the base) facing the garage and one facing out so the one was on a hour or two early and later each day. Just had to screw it in a little further so both light sensors pointed out and now they come on at about the same time.

Dawn To Dusk Light Bulb
4 Star Review   By Curly on Home Depot - Oct 9, 2012    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

We were looking for an easy way to have lights on our deck without getting new fixtures. We came across an article telling about the Phillips Dawn to Dusk light bulbs. We r thoroughly satisfied with them. They do exactly what we wanted. They go on when it gets toward evening...goes off when it gets light. It does remain on ,on cloudy or rainy days...but it works pretty well and we are happy with them. We did not need to change our fixtures..they work with our original ones. It is certainly worth the price and it gives us peace of mind when we go on vacation.

Overall great I usually leave to work when it's dark and then have to drive all the way home on my lunch time to turn the lights off to save some energy.. but now I just leave and they turn off on their own.. The only thing that I noticed was that they do turn on a bit earlier than dark , but its still ok

5 Star Review   By MtnMan on Home Depot - Apr 24, 2012    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

Great bright bulb that lasts 7500 hrs...well worth price!
5 Star Review   Home Depot    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

I purchased 2 Philips Dusk to Dawn bulbs 2 years ago for the coach lamps outside of my garage. I leave the switch on all the time, and as the garage faces a shady area of the yard, I expected to get no more than 1 year of life out of them. After all, the bulbs are lit for 8 to 12 hours EVERY night. Remarkably, 1 bulb is still working at 8000 hours, and the other just burned out. As several reviewers have commented, the bulbs do come on at dusk or just slightly before. If it's a rainy, overcast day, they will be on then, too. I disagree, however, with reviewers who chalk this up to poor design...I'd say it's just the opposite: the designers may have reckoned that it's better to have a light on just before it's needed, rather than having a bulb that comes on too late. Some reviewers also seemed to think the additional run time would add to their electricity bills, but at 14watts, these bulbs are on a starvation diet. They are also compact in height, which means they'll fit nearly any fixture. Finally, they give off a very warm light that LEDs can't beat; from outside the housing, you'd swear you're looking at an incandescent. I'm off to Home Depot now to buy 2 more!

5 Star Review   By Canton on Home Depot - Mar 22, 2012    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

I was always uncomfortable with how dark the outside of my home was, I tried to remember to turn the lights on everynight and even resorted to leaving them on 24/7 for a while until I found these bulbs! Genius!! I have had them for several months and there has been zero effect on my energy bills. I feel safer now that my outside is lit and I didn't need to change any lights just a couple fo bulbs! Sometimes they come on if it is a dreary day but who cares, they are on when I need them on so I'm not worried if they are occassionally on when they are not needed.

1 Star Review   By Gogi on Home Depot - Jan 16, 2012    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

I got two of these for both sides of my garage door. They stay on for way too long - they are off for about 5 hours during the day (Chicago area). These bulbs need tuning and I'm not gonna take the hit for someone's poor product testing. They are going back to Home Depot. I have traditional light sensors bought in Home Depot that work just fine with the regular bulbs.

Don't buy!
1 Star Review     

Strengths: emit light

Weakness: never shut off.

I bought 3 of these. None would shut off even after shining a bright flashlight into the cell.Don't understand when they're supposed to shut off. Certainly not when it's light out.Definately taking them back and buying an intertmatic brand.Phillips usually makes good things, but these really suck!

We like that there iis no forgetting to turn light on at night or off in the morning. Also we do not have to be home or awake. No one can telll if someone is home or not. We had tried a bulb with an auto adaptor but it looked awful with our small fixture.

Good but stays on too long...
3 Star Review   By newhomeowner on Home Depot - Dec 6, 2011    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

I am happy with it, better than having to replace the sensor on my lamp post but the light stays on too long and when the weather is cloudy.

This light bulb is fantastic. Looks like high quality and light is very good. Philips did a good job.

good product, but stays on too long
4 Star Review   By stylerighter on Home Depot - Apr 27, 2011    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

I’ve had these for only two days, in the post lamps on either side of my west-facing front door. I, too, was happy to find them at my local Home Depot, instead of having to order them online. They come on reliably, and eventually switch off on a clear day. However, they do come on a bit early in the evening, and do not switch off until mid-morning (around 9:30 AM when sunrise is around 6:00). They tend to come on if the sky is moderately overcast, and will even turn on if a cloud crosses the sun on a basically clear day. This is a minor nuisance, and I look forward to the peace of mind that they will provide when we are away on vacation. Still, I would like them better if they were a little more sensitive to light coming from the sky.

Great Lights for outside
5 Star Review   By chadfoo on Home Depot - Mar 8, 2011    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

I had previously installed $30 timers in the wall for Incandescent lights for my outside lights. However, the lights did not last long and had to be changed frequently, even in the winter. However, I wanted to conserve energy and use CFL's which of course do not work with these timers unless you have a neutral wire (which I could never find). Also, the dusk/dawn sensor works quite well for this and is better on these since the other sensors are designed for regular bulbs so they had a better chance of going off and on more often. So, these help light the area at dusk and go off at dawn, no need to mess with timers, are using energy efficient CFLs...no complaints on this. Recommended to many.

Work as advertised
5 Star Review   Home Depot    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

I've had two of the 14W (60W equiv.) on the two back porch lights for security purposes for about a month. They don't light up the yard, just show anyone lurking around the back of the house - exactly what I wanted!

Phillips dusk to dawn bulb
5 Star Review   By blackcanoe on Home Depot - Nov 28, 2010    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

I bought four of these bulbs, two for outside the garage, one out back and another I plan to try out in a lamp in the house. I couldn't be happier with the product. If you don't want the light on all night, just turn off the switch, however, you have to remember to turn the switch back on when you leave. I leave on all evening and am thrilled this product is available locally at Home Depot (although I would have ordered it online.

Works pretty well!
5 Star Review   By grasstastic on Home Depot - Sep 26, 2010    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

Despite the installation - under a porch, inside a globe fixture, It works well. It does turn on and off a few times before full darkness, but it's a small annoyance compared to having to remember to turn it on every night!

dusk til dawn
3 Star Review   By mistere1974 on Home Depot - Jun 29, 2010    ( See more reviews from Home Depot )

I got 2 bulbs for either side of my garage, which faces south. On the plus side, I love the rotating bulb so that the sensor faces out at all times. On the negative side, they are expensive and are not light sensitive enough. In other words, they stay on far too long in the morning and come on too early in the evening. It would be great if they were more light sensitive to extend their life - especially at their cost.
