Yes, it works as a standard porch light -- install it anywhere you have a standard 120AC V, 60Hz outdoor junction box.

You can use incandescents, CFLs or LEDs, although Kuna said its tests "show the best results from a standard A-15 LED or CFL light bulb, 450 lumen."

More than your basic light fixture, Kuna also comes with a built-in 720p live-streaming security camera.

That means you can control your lights and watch live video, as well as receive motion-based alerts via the Kuna app 24-7.
