Customer Questions & Answers

How do you attach light pipe to dawn to dusk screw in adapter?

Mine doesn't click on or attach in anyway even though a light pipe came with the adapter. I see no way of attaching it unless I super glue it to the adapter. Without the adapter the lights flicker and come off and on at different times.
Asked by: Anonymous
The light pipes are friction-fit adapters. They slip over the sensor. For the half-moon adapter, try different orientations.

Could this device be used with an outdoor ceiling fan that has a white globe?

I am trying to find a device to use for security purposes on my screen porch. I have an outdoor ceiling fan with a white globe on the porch. I wondered if this device would work with the globe or if the globe would prevent if from being able to sense the change in light? I am currently using the device in an outside door light fixture and am very pleased with it's performance!

The purpose of this device is to let a light be on at night and to turn that light off during the day. This unit DOES NOT do that. It would never turn the light off even when a bright flashlight was pointed at the "eye". So I returned the three of these that I purchased and I am looking for a solution that actually works.

HOME depo out to product review this stuff better before selling it, it won't work with LED light bulbs or fluorescent lights, it will cause the light to constantly flicker until the light bulb stops working.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I was not able to make it work Tried to use it for a patio fixture, for some strange reasons the opening of the light sensor always faced the wall when screwed in and wasnt getting enough light to turn it off during the day. So I was not anle to use it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not a good item I tried this item with all but 1 light pipe. At night, with no light pipe, it would cycle about every 90 seconds (on then off), with the half-moon pipe, it would cycle about every minute. With the large, round light pipe, it started to work properly then it started to stay on continuously, even with the sun directly on it. Have not tried the small pipe but it can't be any worse than the large one. I do not recommend it. If I can find the receipt, I will return it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Automatic Light Control 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!
