Motion Sensor is rated

These HeathCo SH-5316-BZ 240degree DualZone motion sensors come with a 2 year warranty. If you are lucky, you'll get about 25 months (or less) out of them. These came on two light fixtures installed on the exterior of my house. The first one quit while it was under warranty. Then the other one quit, just under the wire. Knowing this might be an ongoing problem, I bought a spare to have on hand. Good thing I did. They work great WHEN they work. They just don't last very long.
I have some different, simpler, models that much older. They are still going strong after MANY years of use outside. Perhaps the more complicated it becomes the shorter the life span.
My OLD ones just sense motion and light. If something moves in the dark, they come on.
These come on dim for a while at dusk. Then, if motion is sensed, they come on bright during dusk and dark. Plus with the "dualzone" there are 2 motion sensors on each head. Apparently all the technology just makes is die an early death. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
