Customer Questions & Answers

GE Automatic Plug-In Photocell Light Control , is this only for two prong plugs, No ground wire?

This item appears to have only two prongs with a photocell below it about where the ground wire should be. Is that correct? Is there another model that is set up for a three prong plug?
Asked by: Anonymous
From picture, it seems to have 3 prongs. The ground one is out of square that include hot and neutral one.

Is it working with LED strip?

I have a glass stand at the entrance and it used to have in base 2 lamps fluorescent 12 inch long and 1 inch wide. Both have been burned out, I replaced them with 2 LED strip bars, one foot each. I would like to know if this plug photocell is working with LED products. I know from previous answer that is not working with CFL bulbs. But I wonder if is working with these LED strips. Thank you.

What happens if you use this product with a CFL bulb?

Asked by: Butch
Butch, typically what will happen is the light will either continue to glow when it’s supposed to be off or it will blink. Jasco Products Tech Support(Manufacturer)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good wattage saver Use it to control a decorative lamp. Turns off power during day when light is not needed. Needs a sensitivity control.
