Rated 1 out of 5 by Walt56 Not fit for purpose
The unit that attaches to the wall has been designed for a non-PIR Sensor and has simply been reversed to accommodate it. An 'UP' direction pointing both ways gives the game away there! This results in the cables entering via the top of the bracket and allows water to run down the cable and onto the electrical connector. I would not recommend this product to anyone.
This is a pity because I liked the look of the light itself.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Willty A very nice fitting but
I like this fitting and the PIR detection works as in the instructions. I do have a couple of issue with it though, the earth tag is not very well crimped onto the earth wire and the control block is mounted in the only place possible which means the plastic base can only be fixed on the wall upside down. This means there is potential for ingress of water into the fitting.

Sent this light straight back. Looked cheap and poor quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by IanG1 Looks good works as advertised.
Picks up movement on drive / entrance i.e. (12 ish foot range) ignores pedestrians on public path - just follow fitting instructions
It’s galvanised not stainless steel so has that slightly used look –which I think is great my wife is not as keen -so if in doubt view in store.
Working fine after 2 months-will update review if any reliability problems encountered –would buy again

Arrived quickly and packaged well. Install was easy and straight forward. Build qaulity is pretty good for the price and feels like it would take the worst of the British climate. Just a couple of holes to be drilled and three wires to connect up.
However, once installed the sensor range is poor, just a couple of feet and its only 40cm above a standard front door height. Bulb type also has an impact. LED doesnt have enough loading to trigger sensor so halogen or incandescent seem better.

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!
