The product of our review today will be the Lithonia OLFL 14 PE BZ M4 Security LED Dusk-to-Dawn Floodlight. This is a fairly new item on the market. It has a dusk-to-dawn photocell which automatically turns on at dusk and off at dawn for both convenience and energy saving. The product is covered with rugged cast-aluminum, corrosion-resistant housing in bronze finish. It is a very nice addition for every household. The tempered glass lens of the product is fully gasketed in order to protect LEDs and keep out any moisture, dirt or bugs. The lamp is equipped with precision optics and reflector for a maximum light output. Because of its design, the product is able to mount easily to existing junction box on walls or under eaves. It’s really something that should not be missed out.
From all the tests that have been conducted with this product, I have found out that it is fully able to provide a fairly even light that backfills fixtures very nicely and it is also able to produce a very good looking consistent light color. The product is available for purchase from the Amazon website for just $73.00.
The manufacturers of the lamp, Lithonia Lightning, are one of the leading companies on the American and international market. The product also possesses a very long life expectancy. Due to the smart technology that was used to create it, the product is available to start on its own when it is dusk and then again stop on its own when it’s dawn.
Here is the full list of specs of the lamp:
Product Dimensions: 6.4 x 4.4 x 4.4 inches
Item Weight: 2 pounds
Type of bulb: LED
Luminous Flux: 1351

During the conducted tests, there were not any representatives of the manufacturing company, and also all the tests were managed using digital timers, set distances, laser distance meters, two separate foot candle meters, and a laser thermal gauge. The same test platform was used for the conduction of all the tests in order to ensure consistent results. All of the taken measurements were done by equipment that was mounted on a tripod, and when it was applicable, timers were utilized. All pieces of equipment were calibrated prior to the tests, and the distances were confirmed. In general, all of the tests were able to support the claims of the manufacturers.
Here are some pros and cons of the product that should be taken into account.
- Solid construction
- Affordable price
- Long lamp life compared to other similar products
- Automatically turns on and off
- Easy to install and maintain
- During testing we saw that the heat sink becomes hotter than in some similar products.

It also has a very nice overall feel; and it is quite easy to install and maintain. It is able to provide years of services for commercial outdoor applications such as yards, driveways, patios, loading areas and warehouses.
