Nordlux Luxembourg Outdoor Wall Light with PIR Sensor, Galvanised Steel
Poor Quality - Returning - Useless Sensor
The light looks great up but is let down by the poor quality. I have since bought a similar light for less than half the price from a well known DIY store and the mounting is better quality! as are the instructions.
At this price you do not expect a plastic! wall mounting. The mounting is not up to the job of holding this lamp IMO and the UP sign on the rear is incorrect (as mentioned). The sensor is next to useless as you need to be less that 4 foot from the light for it to engage and you can't adjust any settings, plus the instructions are practically non existent with no information at all on the sensor.
Needless to say its on its way back to JL.

We bought this light which looks fantastic except the wall mounting bracket is manufactured upside down which allows ingress of water. If you want to prevent this, your light will be upside down! We phoned Nordlux who recognise this is a problem and said we could either put up with it or get a refund from John Lewis which we did!!
The new design will not be released until 2015 to correct the issue. I cannot believe JL are still selling these if this is the case. DO NOT BUY!

Lovely looking light, electrician didnt mention any problems putting it up. It works perfectly but the sensor doesnt detect movement until you are pretty close to it. Think it is the design of the light - the glass lantern part of it must obscure the sensor a little. This was for a very dark courtyard accessed by a very dark alley - it doesnt come on until you are but a few feet in front of it.
However does look lovely and excellent delivery service as usual.

Waited a week for delivery then found sensor was faulty.
New light now up and working well and looks very good in courtyard garden,
unless you can wire directly into the back of the light you will need to drill a hole in case to feed cable through.,

Industrial looking, suits the area we chose it for.
The light appears to be well made it with a good galvanised covering. It was reasonably easy to put up, but be aware that when the wire enters the mounting box from the top (not from behind) you will have to notch the metal light so that it will fit around it. This probably effects the guarentee.
The light looks good and the PIR works well, we are very pleased with it.
