Why are these still been sold

published

These are rubbish that Bunnings still sell- dont they read the reviews and figure out all the refunds-ACCC need to step in and tell them fix these faults or cease manufacturing them-always thought it was illegal to sell faulty goods.

Recently installed sensor light

published

Sensor light is faulty as maximum time it stays on is approx 5-7 seconds. Arlec won't cover under warranty as I don't have the Bunnings receipt and can't recall the date I bought it. Its clear looking at it(as it's white) it hasn't been up long at all. Very annoying..and come on, not everyone keeps every Bunnings receipt

Purchased in at Bunnings Warehouse for $49.95.

Quality Assurance? I don't think so!

published

Bought the Arlec MAL240. Absolute garbage! It worked for a few days, before going into the 'Random Frenzied Flickering' Mode', Night, and/or day, It had a mind of its own!

No more Arlec products for me.

Purchased at Bunnings Warehouse.

Promising ARLEC Product is a FAIL

published

If one spends $180 at Bunnings to buy what appeared to be the top of the range security light you’d expect it to work reliably.
It doesn’t; just flashes on- off-on-off ... irrespective of settings, power circuit, masking of sensor, ... whatever we try or bench test. Arlec should replace or credit.

Beyond worthless (Arlec 36W Triple Head LED Security Sensor Light)

published

Constant false triggering (Arlec 36W Triple Head LED Security Sensor Light)
Purchased recently and installed by a professional electrician. Branch and leave movement causes the lights to go on constantly throughout the night much to the annoyance of the neighbour living below us across the street. We're pretty annoyed too. There is NO sensitivity adjustment on this light, only range! Will be returning - pity Bunnings/Arlec won't be covering the electrician costs.
This product isn't actually on Arlec's website - I strongly suspect they've pulled it given these problems and Bunnings is just running down their existing inventory of it.

Worst motion sensor.

published

Motion sensor wouldnt work. Cheap, poor construction. Expensive for what you get. Bought it at Bunnings they need to pull this product from their line. I have heaps of smart devices and have installed with no issues.

Honestly, it is peace of crap

bought security lights from Bunnings. Worked 1 day then app stopped finding it. Working at the day time or just randomly start lighting. Will not ever buy this brand again. Just a waste of my time.

Poor quality materials and faulty out of the box.

published

Had an Arlec MAL925 motion sensor LED light installed. Guess what? It doesn't work... Well, we managed to get it to work 2 times after testing it on the bench and not in situ by randomly turning power on and off. We followed instructions 100% as to how to get it to work manually and automatically, but to no avail. So, a nice waste of money paying an electrician for their time (including the time testing the light itself). Just as useless as the Arlec 2000W heater we purchased for the bathroom.

Purchased in at Bunnings Warehouse for $45.

Total waste of money

published

Purchased this light from Bunnings, had it installed by a qualified electrician, and it worked fine, until we noticed the next day that it was coming on in the day. We've tried every adjustment, but it appears the daylight sensor is not working at all and we will have to pay our electrician to come back and take the light down, and then pay him to come back again to install the new light (and that definitely won't be an Arlec).

Purchased in at Bunnings Warehouse for $49.90.

Cheap and nasty

published

I bought 5 Arlec LED outdoor sensor with twin globes (model MAL300)

Only 1 work half decent.

The rest of sensors work erratically and sometimes do not work (with one, I literally have to stand right In front of it and wave continuously like a madman). It claims that sensor picks up to 10m....only between 1 to 2 m. Light output is okay, but no as bright as I would expect for a 11w globe.

Poor product and poor quality control. Had to get my electrician to come back to take them all 5 down and replace with another brand which work like a charm.

Do not waste your money and extra electrician cost. I am writing this review to save others the hassle.

Purchased in at Bunnings Warehouse for $20.

Utter garbage. Needs readjusting every week!

published

Utter garbage. Needs readjusting and resetting every week. Amazing that they don't design and test instead of guessing.

First and last Arlec outdoor lighting product.

Back to HPM brand, have installed many and never had an issue with them.

So disappointed!

published

So misleading and disappointing. Does not perform as stated on the box. Virtually $175.00 wasted + cost for electrician to install. So now I'm stuck with a useless light. Daylight robbery.
