Is this a motion sensor light?
Terri R on Apr 4, 2020
BEST ANSWER: They make motion sensor lightbulbs now. I would not call these lamps motion sensor themselves. I have 3 of these lamps. 2 have lightbulbs that come on dusk to dawn and one I have a motion sensor bulb in. They all work great. These are very nice looking lamps, You can also just put ordinary on- off bulbs in them, too,
How does this light fixture do in a frequently moist Beach area?
Lisa E on May 14, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hi - this outdoor wall light is wet location rated and very durable for outside usage, but the finish is not meant for coastal areas. For resistance to salt-air in coastal environments, you should select a fixture with a "Marine Grade" finish. We have an array of great choices including Vivex, Coastal Armor and more. I have added a helpful link below for some great options which are currently offered.

Love these!
I had to purchase 6 of these 8.5 inch fixtures. The 8.5 inch are the perfect size; I'm glad I didn't go the 12 inch ones.
5 were used on the upper story balcony/walkway, and on all of those I used the 60 watt chrome tipped 15A appliance bulbs. Those bulbs really add to the appeal and you don't get blinded looking at the light fixture.
The old light fixtures didn't give off much light even though the wattage was the same. I never used them-they were a joke.
Now, these Minka Kirkhams accent the area below and illuminates the area very nicely.
Highly recommended!

Pros: Area Of Illumination, Easy To Change Bulb, Attractive Design

Overall, very happy with product.
We don't like seeing the bottom of the A15 bulb, and are still searching for an energy efficient flood type bulb that will fit, and be recessed.

Pros: Easy To Change Bulb, Area Of Illumination, Attractive Design

Cons: Finding right bulb

Almost perfect
The lamp shade looks good, but it is just short enough that the bulb sticks out from the bottom. At night time, that's quite a bit of glare right into the eyes!

We are actually using shorter than normal bubs but the problem still is there. It would have been so easy for the manufacturer to make it just half-inch deeper.

great look, great price
I purchased 7 of these for our vacation home in the mountains. After 14 years, they still work great. The finish had weathered off, so I just re-painted them and they look like new. Just ordered 3 more for an addition to our house!

Love it!
We love this light fixture! We used it to light a walkway at the back corner of our house and it is perfect! It is a wonderful looking fixture day or night. We chose to use a clear bulb because the height and location we chose for the fixture allows the bulb to be seen. Using a clear, fairly short, fan light bulb was an attractive solution to the "visible light bulb" situation. We would purchase this fixture again in a heart beat, and only wish we had done it sooner. What were we waiting for?

beautiful outdoor light
This lamp by our three entry doors on our new house looks great. We love the dark sky aspect and think the lamp has a very simple yet rich look.

Attractive and easy to install
I initially purchased one 8 1/2" model and one 11" model. I installed the smaller one above a people door and the larger one above a garage door.
I had 3 other garage doors and two other people door that needed matching fixtures so I bought one of each of these to make sure that the quality and appearance were what I needed. The light exceeded my expectations so I bought the remainder of what I needed.

Pros: Weather Resistant, Attractive Design, Area Of Illumination, Easy To Change Bulb
