If someone really insist I will install one...then get ready for the call-backs.

If somebody knows of a real good one I'm all ears!
Two or three factors here:

1. Most parts on these lights are plastic, and they can't take the outdoor elements.

2. Companies that sell them are more interested in consumers replacing their motion detectors lights more frequently than making lights that last.

3. They're probably made in China, and for the price, this is what you get.
