Customer Questions & Answers

How should this work? If I turn the light switch off, it doesn't go on but if I leave the switch on it never turns off.

I'm using it with led bulbs for porch light.
Asked by: Rt
I had same issue. Your light switch should be in "on" position at all times. This is a bad brand, I had to play with them and keep adjusting during the day until I got the light to go off until night.

Automatic Dusk-to-Dawn Light Control - Black is rated 2.2 out of 5 by 96.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not effective The problem with this is that the light interferes with the sensor. It activates reliably at dark, but then the sensor sees the light and turns the light off, at which point it's dark again so the light comes back on. The result is a strobe light effect which renders the product unusable.

I brought 6 and put 2 at my front door to have carefree lighting that would come on at night and go off on their own in the mornings. 1 of them worked for 3 days and the other one I kept adjusting and it never did come on at dusk, Finally the 1 that was working stopped., I have remove them and will be returning to Store for the 2nd time., I previously returned one thinking it was just one that was faulty but they simply aren't dependable.

Manufacturing quality is pretty poor and performance is unpredictable. There must be a considerable internal voltage drop in the photodiode circuit which causes the normal lumen output of the bulb being "controlled" to be reduced.

I was left holding the empty device. Not happy that a broken device was packaged for sale. Wish that there was some sort of quality control or final inspection at the factory.

Very surprised of the bad reviews for the Defiant Automatic Dusk-to-Dawn Light Controls - Black. We bought two and they have been working excellent. For the price, they are definitely worth a try. I have recommended this to all my neighbors.

This item is very cheaply built with very thin metal for the inside threaded bulb receiver. Like others have said, the contacts break when you tighten the light bulb. A very low quality product. I am returning my now-broken one for a refund.

Your outside lights (porch) etc. are on when you come home after dark. My neighbors with a generator, use them to determine when the power is back on during outages.

Unfortunately this device turns the light back off as soon as it turns it on. This results in a fast flickering. The light from the activated bulb reaches the photocell and disables the light, which turns it back on! Very frustrating.
