[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Forgive the awning in the picture; we’re renovating our old house and it’s a slow process to restore and replace all that needs it! However, it’s a definite upgrade from the rusty embarrassingly bad fixture that was there before for sure! There was no issue connecting it or mounting it to the old (but inspected) wiring/brick, and the housing is not difficult to remove to replace the bulb, which is a standard fitting, as long as the bulb is approved for outdoor use (and always making sure the wattage is in range). I used a very warm light because it has that lantern look so a warmer flame-like hue looks great glowing through it. No issues with flickering or response time when switched on. Sometimes that has more to do with the bulb though (halogen is slow to switch on and off but we use LED). Overall, I like the designs this brand has; a good range for many different house style themes. This being an older brick home, adding some modern updates with older charm has been the way to go. This light definitely brings the right kind of attention to the front of the home!
