      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A LIGHTWEIGHTamong intruder alerts. OK for a 'convenience' light.

      WHY I BOUGHT IT
      I had a few unsavoury characters huddled in my (unoverlooked) porch and decided that I should fit a security light to dissuade them and illuminate their activities if they should try again.

      CONSTRUCTION
      Sadly this item is of the flimsiest construction. One blow of an elbow would destroy it. The plastic is of the lightest, brittlest construction. NOT for security purposes I would suggest.

      INSTALLATION
      Installation was a nightmare. It comprises the fiddliest of parts, located in the most fiddliest and 'inaccessible' places. What I thought would be a 15 minute wiring job turned out to take over an hour. (Why do designers do this? It took 5 different screwdrivers to install it> 5??? Why as many as 5 screwdrivers?)

      MOUNTING
      Mounting is by 2 (Not 4, but a mere 2) screw holes. Instead of being perfectly flush, it therefore wobbles on my slightly imperfect wall. I worry about possible water ingress.

      OPERATION
      Seems to be almost permanently 'on' to me, rather than only on intruder detection. Maybe thats just the setting...but who knows.

      RECOMMENDATION
      Friedland make fine doorbells. This seems to be an unsuccessful excurrsion for them. These units are reduced in price throughout the internet...I wonder why?

      I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS ITEM unless you merely use it as a 'convenience' light for when someone approaches your door. Even then, its installation irritations points towards more suitable alternatives.
