Rated 2 out of 5 by Keith Wood-Walker This is the third security light I have puchased from your Morecambe store the previous two having been returned as they did not work every night. I decided to
work another one but again, for no apparent reason, it does not work every night which is most frustrating.I this persists I will ring your Helpline to see if they can give me an explanation.

I initially bought 1 of these,as I didn't want the hassle of drilling holes & running wires outside. It looks good & the light given, is brighter than expected.......I would have rated this a 5.
However,I bought a second unit to fit on the back of the house,& the PIR failed after a few days. I exchanged for a new unit,& that also failed.I even replaced the batteries & tried to re-set during dusk.(the instructions are pretty useless). It wouldn't even switch on manually.I have just taken down my 5th replacement (lasted a whole week! ).
I had hoped it may have been a dodgy batch,but have now decided to give up,get a full refund,& go for a wired unit.
The 1st unit which was purchased,is working perfectly,& I'm extremely frustrated at the failure of a further 5 units.
Otherwise,a great piece of kit....hahaha

I was bought this for christmas.
Screws for brackets bent.
Very bright lights but when they switch off in Auto they stay off.
PIR DOES NOT WORK.
Took it back for replacement and all the ones tried in shop( different store from original purchase), had the same problem:

I don't usually leave online reviews but this product is SO bad I feel it necessary to do so.
I bought the optional solar panel (with rechargeable batteries included) but the jack does not connect to the light unit, it simply drops out, leading me to believe the female connector is not present or not secured in the correct place. End result, solar panel is useless and unit cannot be used as I wished.
To test the lights I then put in normal batteries and the LEDs merely glow! And that is when I press on the battery housing to make a connection! There is absolutely no way this could be used as an outdoor light, my children's night light emits more light. I agree with the previous comments that the "Auto" setting only switches on the lights for approx. 1-2 seconds, no where near long enough to be useful.
I am absolutely disgusted with the quality and performance of this item and cannot believe Homebase can stock rubbish like this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Brilliant, Bright and self maintaining
Bought this (together with the solar panel) to put on my powerless garage. Wasn't expecting much from 2 LEDs and 4 AA batteries, but it is really bright.
The light is fairly concentrated, so it doesn't cover the whole garden in light, but from a distance of 3m, it has created a 3m diameter of light, and everything within that 3m is well lit.
Solar panel is self maintaining too. Left to charge for 2 days during a grim October, before turning on, and it has always had plenty of power to turn on when needed.
Worth noting, light only turns on for 10 seconds, unless more motion is detected (when first turned on, turned off again instantly, but this was due to the batteries being flat).

This should be a good product - But only lights up for one second - not ten as advertised - a big dissapointment.
