Motion Sensor Lights: Spend a Little Extra

Motion Sensor Lights

We install about two dozen motion sensor lights for our customers every year. Spending less doesn’t pay off. We have some suggestions.

Home Depot’s private label, the Defiant brand, while costing as little as $35 (pictured on the far right) should be avoided, if you can. We’re noticing that they are failing about 10% of the time, right out of the box. We find similar experience with the Heath/Zenith product line.


If you can, plan on spending at least $85 and you can get into HD’s better product line (on the left) or the Lithonia brand, a higher quality product than Defiant / Zenith.
