Great, but NOT waterproof!
on 30 November 2011
This little light is a breeze to install, it went on the outside of our shed in 5 mins. The light is bright and has a reasonably wide beam. The PIR detects me about 2-3 metres away and the inbuilt light sensor means it only works at night as you'd expect. Battery life seems good too; I haven't known it not come on, even now the nights are drawing in.
It worked brilliantly for the first couple of months - before the weather started to get damp. I then noticed that the clear lens on both the light and the PIR had moisture droplets in them. I took the whole thing to bits (more moisture inside!), dried it inside and squirted loads of clear sealant around all the openings and edges. It now appears to finally be waterproof - why couldn't they have done this simple thing at the factory??? Overall a 3 star - would have made a 5 if it was waterproof!
