Craftmade Z8794 Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Product For a lamp post I have no complaints the price was fair. The only complaints I had was the directions could of been more clearer on how to wire the dusk to dawn photocell to the light fixture if you never done it before and I had to re-drill the holes for the outlet they did not line up to the predrilled holes.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Broken Outlet Cover This Craftmade post was exactly what we were looking for. However, upon installation, the plastic all-weather cover over the convenience outlet broke off the first time I used the outlet. I have been looking for a replacement cover but can't find one anywhere. Craftmade's website doesn't even feature the post.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Product, Great support I had some problems with this order and receive a quick response (by phone) that resolved the problems much to my satisfaction. I highly recommend this company. It is one that cares.

Do I have to relace the entire pole if my photo cell is bad?

You can purchase a replacement photo cell if you need one. The model number is the RP-PC2.

Is Z8794 and Z8994 made of aluminum or steel ?

Thank you for your question. The Craftmade Z8794 and the Z8994 are both made of aluminum.

Is it possible to purchase the photo cell of this pole light separately?

The Craftmade Z8794 photo cell is available separately as part # RP-PC4.

Is the outlet at the top or bottom of the post?

The outlet for the Craftmade Z8794 is located at the bottom of the post.

What is the difference between the Craftmade Z8794 and the Z8994?

The Craftmade Z8794 is different in that it comes with a photocell but it is not pre-wired. The Craftmade Z8994 has a pre-wired photocell.

how deep in cement should they be sunken?

Upon installation, the Craftmade Z8794 should be at least 12" deep in cement/concrete.

Does this Craftmade Direct Burial Post with Photocell and Convenience Outlet turn any exterior light into a dusk to dawn light.

I just confirmed with Craftmade customer service that their Z8794 does exactly that.

Hi, I am little lost when you say Z8794 comes with photocell but it is not pre-wired. What exactly do you mean? If photocell is supplied, isn't it just matter of just connecting wires? I am trying to decide why I would buy Z8994 when Z8794 is $30 cheaper. Thanks

The Z8994 is pre-wired and ready for installation vs. a model that you will have to wire and prepare for installation.

Installed craftmade z8794; however, the instructions were Spanish. Want to know more about the photocell since can't read instructions.

Thank you for your question! Photocell is a sensor that is supplied by a power feed and switches a load. If you have any more questions please feel free to contact me directly!

What is the diameter?

The Craftmade Z8794 has a 3 inch diameter.

Does it plug in regular wall outlet?

The Craftmade Z8794 does have a standard wall outlet integrated in the post.

Is there a base plate adapter available, or does it required a direct burial installation?

The Craftmade Z8794 is a direct burial install only, unfortunately a base plate adapter would not work for this product.

Is Z8794-05 post compatible with Acclaim 5208 Richmond 3 Light 28" postlight?

Yes the Craftmade Z8794-05 and Acclaim 5208 are compatible.
