The unit housing is good quality and it was easy to attach, wire and secure in place of the standard on/off light that it replaced.
Make sure you have a tube of clear silicone to seal between the light body and wall or surface that it's attached to, as the supplied gasket will not work for all applications - you will need to seal the perimeter if you want a watertight junction.
The light is very sensitive - I dialed the controller back to about 1/4 of maximum and it seems to work fine and is triggered within about 6' of the garage door. Heavy wind and rain do have an affect, but there's probably not much that can be done about that - so be prepared to adjust it or just turn it on or off on the odd occasion that Mother Nature plays havoc.
It has a very useful on / off feature that is built into the controller - you basically just turn the main switch off and back on within 5 seconds and the light comes on for up to 8 hours - repeat the process and you're back to IR mode... it's come in handy several times.
I picked this security light in the bronze finish due to it's styling. Most security lights are too big and industrial looking for use on a house. It looks as great as a security light can! My only complaint is that the lights did not come with the mounting box. I'm sure a lot of people will surface mount this light and finding a bronze colored mounting box may be difficult. Luckily our electrician had some on hand.
If you start out at the big-box retailers, you soon realize everything looks the same (white and focused on high security). This fixture is solidly constructed (meal rather than plastic parts), compact, doesn't look or feel like the stuff from the big-box retailers, has instructions in actual English, and installs easily. Oh, and it works well. I swapped the 100 watt bulbs that came with the fixture for 50s because I don't consider our driveway to be a Homeland Security hotspot.

This was my first time ordering an item through AGT Stores and I must say that I am impressed. The item that I ordered was value priced, it came promptly, and I am very pleased with how it looks and operates.
