Designers Fountain P218C Reviews

Motion Detector and SpotlightWe bought this Designers Fountain light for two reasons: as a typical motion detector and also as a spotlight when grilling. Through the inside switch, we can set it to be always on (so no need to create motion every few minutes while grilling). Afterwards, we use the inside switch to reset the light to the motion detector mode. With the bulbs encased, the fixture looks like the more expensive ones. We bought another one for the driveway.

Doesn't work, get to pay electrician to uninstallPaid an electrician to install the security light, it stayed on all day and all night the first night. Then it went off and never came back on as a motion sensor. I tried to test it, and it does come on when you push the test button, but never comes on after that. Now I get to pay the electrician to come back and uninstall / reinstall another light. Piece of junk!

A Good ValueThis light is precisely described on the website and looks just as the picture. The value for the quality is excellent. I like the low maintenance aspect--easy to change bulbs, when needed. The detection does seem to be very sensitive, which causes the light to come in during a windy night, or when it is raining. I suspect snow will cause it to come on also. When that happens, I just turn it off. As usual with Lighting Direct, shipping was fast and accurate.

I lost my manual and the light won't shut off, why?
A. If you wired the Designers Fountain P218C to operate with a wall switch and bypassed the motion detector, this could result in the light being on at all times. The other issue is if there is a lot of motion in your yard, the light would constantly sense this motion and be on continuously.
