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: Wendy
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!
Asked by: honeysmom
probably not, it makes the light bulb too lone.

The description states that this product is brown but it looks gray in the picture, which is correct? Also, what is the dimension that this socket would be above existing socket that it would screw into. The gray or brown area, reason for this question is the light bulb is currently centered in the fixture. How much higher would it be? I want to buy 3 of these for a 3 light outdoor bracket light.

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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works wonderfully I bought two of these and put them in the outside light fixtures on either side of the front door. They went in easily and have worked like a charm. The lights come on at dusk and off at dawn and I no longer worry if someone has left them on all day.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Product, but not the least expensive This product works well, however, it may take several physical adjustments of the "light pipe" shroud. The hole diameter on the light pipe can be drilled bigger to fine-tune the sensor so that it doesn't stay on too long in the daytime or go on too early in the night time. These aren't the most economical devices, but they seem to be built well and they work good. They work well with LED bulbs too, which will save you some money in the long run.
