8w? Might as well get a candle in a lantern. Anything below 30w is a waste of time. Personally I'd go 50w

I have a couple of 10 watt lights in my garage, and they are very bright. Blind you if you catch sight of one, I have actually got them tilted up slightly so they are actually illuminating the garage ceiling.
These 8 watt will be fine if you are just looking for a bit of driveway illumination, and not planning to have a party there!

Really depends on what space your lighting, 30w units are not much more right enough...
Heat added op, hubby bought a differant light from there web site in the sale, so thankyou
Be aware the version with PIR will be rated IP56 and probably fail within 2 years due to water ingress as was my experience.

Go for the one without a PIR or another brand which is IP65 rated..

Mine lasted less than a year. Its under cover too so it wasn't due to water ingress.
I have the white one and it died last week. It lasted 13 months.

just what I am looking at - not many with pirs that get the ip 65 rating (could not find anything sutable on screwfix)
Had 3 of these non lasted more than 12 months. Luceco did replace one without fuss but I would buy something more reliable if you don't want to spend half your life up a ladder.

Looks like both PIR and non PIR models are only IP44 rated if you look up the model numbers on Luceco’s website. Screwfix also list as IP44 despite the product info link suggesting it’s IP65.
IP44 seem to be only suited to damp as opposed to rain so I fail to see how they can be sold for outside use unless they are under some protection from the rain. This could explain the failure rate noted by many posts. I think I will steer clear and go for an IP 65 or 66 rated one

Same here I opted for a V-Tac from elsewhere only time will tell how reliable it is.

We had 4 x IP65 floodlights around the house (brand I can't remember and no longer soldv).

It was the one at the back that failed due to probably too much activation from the combi boiler flue pluming..

The other 3 x are still working fine after several years which after looking at reviews, what I previously bought (Luceco) and the IP ratings is how I determined IP65 is the way to go..

Had the 15w installed for about 3 years now. Been working flawlessly, it's gotten a little dim lately so might replace it soon!

Just so you know, if you go (off - on - off - on) then it will bypass the sensor and remain on permanantly.
Don't buy these.... I have 4 and two have gone in under a year... Costs more to take down and schlep to screw fix. Just spend a bit more for 50w plus and higher op rating

Normally I would agree, however I have a narrow path down the side of my house which just needs a bit of light to see your way. This is bang on perfect!

I just got the v-tag as well - seems to be the only one ip65 in a reasonable price range , I also had to get a defused version as the second light is lower down and eye damage is possible with these (the defused 20w version cost me £85 but is coastal weather proof and guaranteed it will never discolour or fade - but still probably will burn my eyes out)

"something more reliable" - any suggestions?

I see V-tag mentioned.

I've had 2 other brands of PIR floodlights fail. Both were IP65 so I wouldn't put money on that being a solution. I lost a few hours of my life trying to research better brands but all had a decent number of bad reviews, talking about multiple failures.
I bought a meikee from Amazon which seems to be on deal of the day on a regular basis and is a good time to buy. States ip66 and presently £23 for 30w . With generally good reviews and a I think a £14 deal price I took the plunge.
The pir is a lot more accurate than the luceco but only been up about months so can't comment on longevity although it has already out lasted one luceco

I got V-Tac 471 VT-50-S from CPC which has a 5 year warranty.. take with a pinch of salt but if it fails within 5 years I will lodge a claim under the guarantee.. reliability.. only time will tell!
