photosensor lighting control





You can use photosensors to prevent outdoor lights from operating during daylight hours. This can help save energy because you don't have to remember to turn off your outdoor lights.

Photosensors sense ambient light conditions, making them useful for all types of outdoor lighting. They offer little utility in controlling lights inside the home because lighting needs vary with occupant activity rather than ambient lighting levels.
