Q:It appears this has three wires. A black, red and white lead. I am replacing one that has failed. My post lamp is fed by a 2 wire romex cable. No white neutral wire. How do you wire without a neutral wire?

Answer This Question

A:  We would suggest that you consult a professional electrician for installation for this light fixture if you aren't able to wire it with what the photo eye requires.

        A:  Should be less then 10seconds

        by|Jan 15, 2023

          A:  Turns on within 5 to 10 seconds but the entire censor needs covering not just a finger on the light censor.

            A:  Mine turned off in 2 sec., that was One year ago. It’s completely dead now after a brief neighborhood power failure. Check the fuse box & try again. I’m  going to need a new post. Good luck.

              A:  Before I answer the question I will tell you how amazed I am at Home Depot's records. I have not purchased these for MANY years which says something about their longevity. The answer to your question is that if they are still selling the identical units the light comes on almost the moment you cover the sensor with your hand. Do know that this particular unit is specifically designed to install on the circumference of a post light.

              by|Jan 16, 2023

                A:  Our Design House Black Replacement Photo Eye for Lamp Posts is intended to turn on within 10 seconds. For testing, please ensure that the entire eye is fully covered for maximum success.

                  I could not believe this design was still around. My house and lamp post light is in the 50 year mark! Thank you HD!

                    It only worked for one night and then failed. It was returned.
