Code LED security light

Code LED security light

The electronic ballast in the LOA HPS security light at my mom's house blew and I was out of spare HPS wall packs. As the house will probably be sold within a few years and I'd remove an HID unit anyway, I (shudder) decided to go to Home Despot and see what they had. ALL their security lighting was LED! Absolutely all of it. So, (shudder), I installed this and was pleased that it actually seems fairly well built (metal housing!) and the LEDs aren't too glary...but it only produces about half the lumens of a 50w HPS unit. LOL on the specs: 45 year life (yeah, if it lasts 5 that'll be a miracle) and "160w" HID equivalent? More like incandescent equivalent. The built-in photocontrol is not replaceable, but has some logic in the circuitry that makes it stay on if you cycle the power 4 times in 2 seconds or something like that. So, it'll probably dayburn soon enough. It worked fine yesterday though and was easy to install.
