I'm looking to get a replacement Motion Sensor head for my flood lights.
They are a cheap brand and an electrician told me to find a replacement head
since I'm having problems with the current one. I can only find the cheap
$20 Cooper/Regent or Heath-Zeneth heads around. Does anyone know of a
better brand that is available?
I would recommend the H-Z units sold by www.grainger.com, they're not sold
under the H-Z name, and resemble the ones sold by Home Depot, but are much
better quality. They also have higher wattage units if you need them
Of those two the Heath/Zenith is the best. I have about 20 around the
house of various brands and styles, inside and out. The Heaths hold up
fairly well if you keep them out of the sun. Direct sun will kill any
The Regents are pure crap. I have some a few months old that you have
to do gynmastics in front of to get them to light.

I second this recommendation for Heath: we've got one outside on the
garage facing north that doesn't get direct sun, and it's pretty old.
It must be at least 11 years old and works just great, very responsive
I have an El Cheapo in my garage which is ~14 years old. It has
adjustment for sensitivity, time delay to go off. I screwed in two
LED lamps. This thing will last LONG time. Only thing I hate about this
thing is it comes on and stays on if power fail. occurs, I have to turn
the breaker feeding it off/on to reset it.
I received the Grainger version of the H-Z replacement sensor. It solved my
problem. With the Regent sensor, if I operated my garage light switch or my
laundry room light switch, the motion light went on. With the H-Z, they
don't go on. Thanks again!
