Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by aessgl1 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.

Works perfectly on my covered deck. Compatible with the new CFL bulbs.

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)

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.

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.
