Craftmade Z8994 Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Super Lamp Post This lamp post has the two things that I was looking for: photo sensor and convenience outlet. And not that it just had these things but also they are positioned where I wanted them (i.e. receptacle near base instead of top). The photo sensor works REALLY well; too well, perhaps. It comes on too early and turns off too late for my preference. If there is a way to make it less sensitive to light I would love to know how to change it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light, sturdy and well-made I got two of these posts to light a long driveway, and they are simply great. They are really easy to install and set up - the instructions are clear and idiot-proof. The quality of the material is higher than I expected: thick, heavy duty cast aluminum: light and sturdy. The finish has a very good quality: no blemishes, stains or irregularities in either post. The photocell worked as expected at the first shot, with no issue whatsoever. The extra plug (with GFI) is a welcome freebie.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Purchase at a good price I was looking for a pole that did not have the outlet on the top and did not have the gold ends to the crossbar, this met the need. Was very easy to wire. I recomend doing a dry fit first and mark the depth on the pole with a pencil. The optic works well put this post is under a series of pine trees so it turns on early and off late, but that is not the products fault, it is due to not getting a lot of sun light. The post did have a slight chip in the paint near the outlet but it was not big enough for me to send back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lamp Post This lamp post was actually more than I expected. Great buy and easy to install. Got it when promised and no problems what so ever. Not my first order here and will not be my last......

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks Great This product looks as promised. Although, I had a professional install it for me, did not appear to be too difficult.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far, so good! Love the design of this post. It is of much better quality than anything I saw at leading home improvement stores. Love the fact that it has an electric outlet on it! Would have had 5 stars if the instructions came in English. I can't read Spanish!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nicer than the pictures appear! This post has the photo cell included and an outlet at the bottom which made it perfect for my purposes. It looks great with the Kichler 9935 light unit. I had it installed as I have limited electrical skills, but I watched and I probably could have done it myself. It comes on and turns off when it should and lights a "dark corner" very well. ( Box was brokenbadly enough that small pieces could have fallen out.)

  • Would this post work with Designer's Fountain 1766-RT? Would the rust color be a good match to "rustique"?

    A. The Craftmade Z8994 has a 3" diameter pole and will work with the Designers fountain 1766-RT. The two finishes are close but not an exact match.
  • Can the post be pier mounted using any 3" diameter pier

    A. The Craftmade Z8994 can be mounted on any 3" diameter pier or post.
  • How is this lamp post installed, i.e. underground mounting/fitting? Is there an installation kit that comes with it? What is the final height above ground after installation?

    A. The Craftmade Z8994 is made for direct burial, so if there is a hole in the ground with a conduit for electric wiring buried and ready to go then insert the post into the ground at least 8"-12" buried. Because it is 7' tall, there is still plenty of height. The lights come with the mounting kits.
  • If I already have a outdoor post will this post replace it ?

    A. The Craftmade Z8994 has a diameter of 3" and is 84" in height. If your post matches these descriptions, you should be just fine!
  • Is the convenience outlet grounded?

    A. Thank you for your question. Yes, the Craftmade Z8994 outlet is grounded.
  • Is there an on/off switch on the post itself?

    A. The post for the Craftmade Z8994 does not have an on/off switch. It does have a photocell and would turn on and off with the rising and setting of the sun.
  • What material is it made of?

    A. The Craftmade Z8994 is made of cast aluminum.
  • Can you adjust the photo cell to be less sensitive? Comes on too early and turns off too late.

    A. The Craftmade Z8994 photocell unfortunately cannot be adjusted.
  • Is there a 3 lantern light option available for this post ? (ie...example Z8255 style) I prefer energy saver and the Z335 type lantern.

    A. Try the Designers Fountain 1923-BK.
  • Sorry, don't see this itemized -- does this post come with the lamp featured in the photo? And what kind of bulbs are required?

    A. The Craftmade Z8994 does not come with the light fixture shown. The bulb type depends on what fixture you select.
  • Would a Murray Feiss post lamp fit the Craftmade Z8994 84" post?

    A. The post is a standard 3" diameter.
  • What types of bulbs may be used with this wiring/photocell?


    The Craftmade Z8994 works with an incandescent bulb.

  • Does this include the lamp?


    The Craftmade Z8994 is the post only, the light shown in the picture is not included.

  • Can I wire a separate light to work off the photocell so both come on/off at same time?


    The Craftmade Z8994 photo cell will work with 1 fixture.
