CFL bulbs just flicker like crazy and then shut off. I hooked them up last night and the first time they flickered like crazy and then tripped the breaker in the panel. I reset the breaker and then they flickered until they all shut off and one of the brand new bulbs turned brown all around the base. I replaced it with a new bulb and everything just flickered again. I left on for 15 minutes, but everything shut down so I removed the automatic light control devices and went back to controlling the CFLs manually.

Answer: 
Some control units, like this one, are designed to work with traditional incandescent bulbs that draw more current that newer LED or compact florescent bulbs. Instead of a mechanical switching contact to turn the bulb off, these use a solid state device that can have a residual "idle current" That is...they don't cut off the current completely. This works fine for incandescent bulbs that need about half Read More
Some control units, like this one, are designed to work with traditional incandescent bulbs that draw more current that newer LED or compact florescent bulbs. Instead of a mechanical switching contact to turn the bulb off, these use a solid state device that can have a residual "idle current" That is...they don't cut off the current completely. This works fine for incandescent bulbs that need about half of their current before the light starts to glow, but with LED and CFL bulbs, this trickle of current is enough to make them glow or flicker or sometimes even cycle on and off. Just be sure that the light controller says on the package that it works with the bulb your matching it with. This is true of dimmer switches also. A dimmer for incandescent bulbs will usually not dim a LED or CFL bulb, but will make it glow brightly at any setting. I hope this helps Read Less

Rated 2.2 out of 5 by 49 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Dawn to Duck light control Does not work. Light not coming on and off. Installed to two lamps in the house. August 30, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Automatically Great Looking to make life just a tad bit easier? If so, pick up a automatic dusk-to-dawn light control. Simply swore it into the socket followed by the bulb, turn on the light switch and forget about. The light come on and goes off by itself. This device helps me save money because I no longer have to keep the lights on during the day. I also don't come home to a dark, spooky house. August 13, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very necessary I have an old Eichbaum lamp in my back yard that I have been using since 1992 and this item is essential to having it come on at nights. Works great and surprised how long it has worked. Since 1992 this is the first time I have had to replace the old one. 24 years is a long time for any product lasting. And by the way it was an electrical storm that knocked this one out. August 2, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works great Inside of my light was white so we went with this white one. Its short enough too so that the light bulb doesn't hang down out of proportion with the actual light. Works great. August 9, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Light control socket These are a novel idea, but they don't work. They worked the first night and after that in Texas heat nada, nothing. Would never recommend. We changed these out for bulbs we can switch on from the Wink app. The wink app bulbs worked great. This product a waste of money. August 2, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great product at a great price It actually works, unlike the one I purchased and had to return at the other home improvement store. And it was far less expensive. August 5, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by dusk to dawn design not flexible enough to turn tube facing daylight and stays on too long. otherwise nice overall size. July 5, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Light Control Failure Worked one week. Now does not work at all. Would not recommend this to anyone. June 14, 2016
