Answer: 
I've got the same problem and no matter what position I put it in, it still flickers for about an hour till it's fully dark or light in that area. I though the sensor might be broken until I read these answers. The light is an led round puff from Home Depot too.

Is the sensor able to clearly "see" the sunlight? Sometimes the sensor is too shaded.

Answer: 
There are two possibilities from my experience; the first is that it is defective and should be replaced. The other is that trees blowing in the wind are partially shading the photocell. Try aiming it in a different direction. I would think that the delay on the photocell would prevent the second possibility but that depends on several factors.

You sure you connected the wires correctly, or maybe bad light bulb (?), what was the wattage of the light bulbs?

Answer: 
you can use the sensor up to 1800watts. so if you have two flood lights with 500w bulbs, you are good at a 1000w. you could go for 3 lights. you are probably hitting the sensor with some light from the second light, this would cause the sensor to turn off just adj sensor away from light.

Answer: 
It's probably a wiring issue.
The black wire (hot) from power source should be connected to the black wire going to the photocell.
All of the white (neutral) wires should all be connected together.
The black wires providing power to the floods should be connected to the red wire coming from the photocell.
Unless your two floods exceed the 1800 watt maximum load for this photocell (e.g. two 1,000 watt Read More

Answer: 
I used it with two Polaroid LED floodlights. In the past, I have used various branded photo-controls for 2-incandescent or 2-fluorescent bulbs. Only limitation is the controls' wattage capacity. It is listed as 1,800 watts which should easily support 2-150W bulbs.

1,800-Watt Gooseneck Swivel Photocell is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 57.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better photocell than square one Replaced 3 old photocell with 3 of these, I liked the swivel feature, they sit under roof overhang so some lights were turning on earlier, now they all turn on at same time. I also like that this unit now handles as much wattage as the old ones I replaced.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Did it's job I installed this photo cell to control and outside socket. I wired it as illustrated but when I tried to test it, it would not work. After checking my wiring several times, my granddaughter noticed the instructions said "May take up to two minutes to operate" !! This is a long wait time for a photo cell, but it works as advertised.

Excellent replacement for the failed 'block-shaped' photocell switch that was mounted under an outdoor electrical panel. Gooseneck design and longer tube lets me adjust the aim to catch morning sun earlier and late afternoon light later, reducing the time my dusk-to-dawn lights are on.

I've installed a couple of these, the first was fine the second one fell apart while gently being screwed in. We were able to reassemble with an additional washer and use it, but be aware they are more fragile than you would expect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Work well Used this photocell to update old flood light fixtures for dusk to dawn usage. They have been working good for over a year now,except for one that had water intrusion due to improper installation, not the sensors fault.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does not work I bought three of these and installed them in derect sun light and the lights are still on. They turn off only if i move the thing around for 30 seconds and then they turn back on.
