Is this light controlled by power switch? I am looking for the light with NO sensor or photocell or whatever automatically control. I want turn on and turn off on the wall switch. Please advise. Thank you!
By Jacob from Pegasus Lighting on July 16, 2013
You are correct. This floodlight does NOT have a photocell or motion sensor. It can be controlled by a wall switch.

What is the maximum detection range (how many feet can be lighting out by this light?) thank you!
By Jacob from Pegasus Lighting on July 16, 2013
This is a tricky question to answer because how far the light can be perceived is dependent on the person, ambient lighting, and other factors. Manufacturers don't publish this info because it's hard to measure.
What I can tell you is that it emits a lot of light - 920 lumens - and that the beam spread (how far the light spreads) is 110 degrees. You can also adjust the individual floodlights to highlight specific areas that need illuminated.

Answer:I just installed two of these lights (two separate fixtures containing two lights each) above a deck. If the lights are installed about 12 feet off the surface to be lighted, the light extends about 15 to 20 feet out from the wall if the two lights are pointed about 45 degrees out. The light can be spread out or more focused (brighter), depending on how you aim the two lights in one fixture. I was pleased with the brightness of the individual bulbs, they are just right - equal to about a 50 watt incandescent bulb, but less light is wasted because it is more point-able.

Is this fixture dimmable? I'm wanting to add a dual brite motion detector to this. It's half watt at night until a motion is detected then it goes full bright.
By Jacob from Pegasus Lighting on March 21, 2013
No, the LEDs are not dimmable.

Is this bright enough to light a flag on a 30 foot flagpole? Other recommendations?

Answer:We have both the single and double lights and use them to accent the outside of the house. They mount on the brick and shine up the side of the house. The light is a bright or cool light rather than warm which would be good for your purpose. It also reaches the eaves of the second floor which would be 25'-30'. However, I am unsure how big your flag is. It will probably work.

Can these lights be pointed up as to light signs, etc?
By Jacob from Pegasus Lighting on January 8, 2013
Yes, the heads are adjustable.

I want to use these in a motion light at 10 feet up on a building. Will they be OK with motion lights going On/Off all the time?
By Jacob from Pegasus Lighting on January 14, 2013
Yes, they will be alright turning on/off frequently.

I like the look of this light, but I would like this light to have a motion detector. Do you make this model with a motion detector? If you do not make a motion detector model, It seems like one could be added if you had the right box to mount it on. Any suggestions?
By Jacob from Pegasus Lighting on September 2, 2013
Answer:We do not carry a motion detector version of this light fixture.
A motion sensor/photocell can be added in the field.

Answer:The 19-watt dual (or 8 watt single) lights are typically mounted on a weatherproof 4" mounting box that can be purchased at any electrical supply department including Home Depot. They come in bronze or white, and cost $5-7. You can also purchase a motion detector component, also in either bronze or white that screws into this box or into the mounting plate of the floodlight. A motion detector is just a fancy switch, which turns on when motion is detected, then turns off again after a preset duration. These motion detector switches cost $15 to $20, and are also available at many electrical departments or on Amazon. You simply wire the motion detector into the circuit inside the mounting box. This component approach can be used for any floodlight mounted on a mounting box.

Answer:It installs just like a weather proof flood light holder. All the electronics are in the head so you just have the power leads to deal with. You could put it on a weatherproof box and attach a photocell or motion detector that will work with LED. I've heard some controls don't work well with LED's but I haven't seen it myself. It is a very nice, well made compact fixture that gives a lot of light for it's size. The only issue I had with them was mounting them to octagon boxes with only two mounting holes. It only mounts a certain way. If you need to have the heads side by side or over and under have it in your hand before you rough-in. You can drill out the opposite holes but I don't think it's made to do this and I don't think is weatherproof if you do. Mine are inside so it doesn't matter. If you mount it to a weatherproof box mounting holes spaced every 90 degrees this shouldn't be an issue.
