The sun sets earlier in the winter, and for most of us that means coming home from work after dark. Outdoor lighting can make a big difference when it comes to navigating snowy walkways or feeling safe on the walk to your front door but keeping your lights on all day can cause your electric bill to climb. That’s where these dusk-sensing Philips LED light bulbs come in.

How It Works

The Philips dusk-to-dawn light bulbs automatically detect when the sun goes down, so your outdoor lights won’t stay on all day, but your home will be brightly lit when you come home in the dark. They also automatically turn off when the sun rises. The LED bulbs are energy efficient and last up to 10 years. The automatic on/off feature is also great for frequent travelers since it can make your home look occupied while you’re away.

Why Customers Love It

Customers love that these light bulbs kept their home lit at night but didn’t suck up energy all day. Installation was as simple as screwing the bulbs into an existing outdoor light fixture, and the sensors automatically handle the rest. Customers also had a good experience with the warranty and noted bulbs were quickly replaced when they ran into a defective product.
