This won't go over well with the wife, but you are right.  The fixture itself 
is what makes it different.  There are seals to keep the water out of the 
outlet.  You can run any bulb that fits the threads in the outlet.  

This is within reason.  Don't plug in a 500 watt halogen bulb, or something 
like that.  Otherwise it takes a normal bulb.

Subject: [BlindHandyMan] porch light

The light bulb on our front porch went out. Question; being that it has 
some kind of censor that turns the light on once it gets dark and turns off 
in the morning when it gets light, is it a special light bulb? My wife 
thinks so, but I don't think so. I think it'll takes any light bulb 
providing it fits in the fixture.
