Jodi Marks: Well, over here in the lighting department, you can see there’s no shortage of choices when you’re trying to find a motion security light for your home. And there are many different features, just depending upon what you’re looking for; but I want to highlight this one in particular, because I think it’s really good.

This is by Defiant. And this particular light is set apart from the other ones. Because look right here, you can already see it has three lights on it.

Another thing that sets it apart is that it’s got the LED technology. What does that mean for you? It’s going to last longer, it’s going to save you money, and it’s a lot more of an intense light when it comes on.

Now, this has a full range of 270 degrees of light and motion detection. And, speaking of motion detection, this can detect up to 70 feet away.

So, all of these features, combined in this one little package, is perfect for your home security.

    I have a defiant LSD motion security light, it is mounted under the eave beside the door, about 9 or 10 feet above the street, will light up for cars on the street but not for cars parking in front of the house, or walking up the walk.

    Love the bright light.
    Down side is there is no adjust on the detection sensitivity. Because of the 180 degree of detection, on windy days, the movement of my neighbor’s tree would turn the light on repeatedly.
    POOR design for an expensive item.

    We love the fact that It gives out the necessary light that we need. The down side is, the bugs they attract. I almost want to take them down because the bugs are so bad. I would welcome any remedy that anyone would offer.

    I agree with the first review. I have had 2. Both of them have stopped working due to water intrusion. I thought it was my fault on the first one for not sealing the base well enough. There was water inside the led housing. I’m assuming it shorted out the lights. On the second install, I sealed the base extremely well. When I pulled it down to investigate why it was not working again, I noticed the motion sensor full of water.

    This light is mounted under an eave in a typical location. Neither light lasted 90 days. Granted, there were a couple of heavy rains, but this unit is NOT damp proof. It appears that if any sort of rain hit it, it will fail. The light itself is fantastic, but it simply is not durable. Do not mount this in a location where it can get wet. I would only consider this light if it can be mounted in a dry location.

    I’m on my third set, they work when they feel like it. sometimes they stay on all day. Then other times they trigger at night for no reason. Then if it rains forget them working at all. Home Depot thinks I’m nuts, like I said I have returned them three different times for new ones and after a couple days they act the same as the ones I returned. I would like to know who manufacture these.

    These Defiant lights do not work. I had them installed and the motion sensor doesn’t work 70 feet away. They only come on or blink red (daytime) when you are directly under them. I gave up on the motion sensor and just turned the lights on at night only to have the shut off during the night. DO not buy these. These are awful lights!!!
