…installed two more of the lights above in a triangle of maybe 10-12’ from each other in the 14’ ceiling space. The lit areas create quite a nice warm contrast (it is a primarily wood interior) at the floor level to the five 4’ fluorescent tube lights hanging amongst them. I’m pretty happy with the few areas that I really needed the light in so far in both applications. I’ll save the last one for a low-watt inverter or generator fed trouble light.

…ordered (2) of the motion detector versions in post# 84 for an outdoor application. One will be installed fairly high (14’) so we’ll see what happens.

…package arrived yesterday. Motion w/dusk to dawn along with the standard 3 adjustable settings on the rear. A bit longer cord on these which may reach a junction box already installed. I will wait until somebody else offers a review (if ever) as I’ve pretty much shared all that I can.

Corncob fixture with a sealed box and vertical purposed lighting built in to the bulb’s underside:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=42v1c0MozOw

Interesting, but the video is worthless because there is no money shot!

Not many manufacturers seem to offer them. From my own experience, the Feit(sic) Electric 100 watt corncob bulb sold at big boxes/online is pretty impressive in terms of lighting a fairly large area. Again, any detailed conversations regarding the LED fixed lighting options out there is pretty hard to find and even harder to understand at $21 (delivered) to ‘hundreds’ for a 100 watt (Chinese) fixture.

…the instructions are as useless as the translator used. A 16’ (or so) installation in a pitch black outdoor environment yields pretty impressive output in terms of total throw in all directions. Tint is the same (nice). Not much luck dialing in the motion sensor initially yet haven’t given up. Instructions indicate only 10 meters of ‘something’ related to (????). Operation adjustment knobs are terrible. Motion adjustment is nothing but a lubed o-ring joint which surprisingly works.
The total damage ended up being (7) 74 watt (self measured) warm(ish) fixtures for inside, outside and work light applications. Hopefully, they will last more than a couple months or years yet it’s been fun seeing what a $20 bill can accomplish in 2018 versus what it would have cost for (cough) “11,000 lumen/3000K” otherwise.

Thanks, Bigtrav! Smile

Update on the MissBee lights from Amazon:
Every one is still working when asked to whether inside or out. The motion obviously has a short range yet still works as well. As stated previously, the tint is warm, pleasing enough to work by and compliments the LED (warm) spotlights suggested earlier in this thread when used together outside.

I have observed the FEIT 100W/10000 lumen in another application outside (bare) and it also works well in an irregularly covered area. A friend had an application where it was covering (bare again) a 5 acre rectangular shaped lot pretty well. I was surprised at how far that it threw in an unobstructed area and am curious as to how a standard metal halide inexpensive yard light fixture will shield it after some modifications to the reflector for fitment.

The Morris is still doing great and the Westgate with various sensors/controls has still not found a home.
