Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Weekster Doesn't work so well
Tried to install on a deck light to make it a night light. I could not get it to turn off during midday sunlight.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Landlord Disappointing product, time consuming continuous adjustments
I purchased 6 of these light controls and only opened one! After days of adjusting the filters to activate dusk and dawn on / off I am not satisfied that they will work in the exterior fixtures. The light control filters must all be pointed in the same direction, which is impossible on 6 exterior pole lights. The adjustment filters really don't help and the light is on far earlier than dusk and far later than dawn. Just not a good product for the price, I will be returning all 6 and hoping for a better product (most likely a different brand)

The sensor on this is quite large and it worked in an area that I needed a dusk to dawn exterior light. Other models did not work and would run 24x7 as a result. This sensor was so sensitive that it picks up the indirect light in this tough spot and works great. It also comes with fitting to reduce the light coming ionto the sensor if you are in a well lit area. A great buy!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Grumpy Works well
Works a little too well. I have to use the filters to block the light the bulb creates on its own. Without a filter it will keep turning on and then trip itself off.

There has been a lot of crime in my neighborhood as of late. These photo cells will help in deterring the individuals who cause the problem. If you work at night these cells are for you.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by adoni Very disappointing
I am trying to use it for a compact fluorescent light. The light never goes off. It is noon now with bright sunlight. I am going to cut the shielding protective of the photosensor to try to get more light to the photosensor in an effort to make it work. You would think in this day and age of energy shortage, and expensive energy a switch like this could and would be available.

So far I've bought five of these over the last two years. Two have actually worked fine, only worked about a year then quit working. Two didn't do anything except stay on all day and night. One worked but when I unscrewed the control out of the socket, the bottom piece which makes contact with the light socket just fell out making it useless.
