I just put this in my out door light post and it blinking?

Answer

The photocell needs to have a clear view of light (or dark) otherwise it will be confused and turn on/off randomly. Put it into a regular lamp socket and cover then uncover the photocell with your finger to test the control & youll see what I mean.

Can it be adjusted or set to turn on other then dusk?

Asked by Dave April 23, 2016

Answer

Unfortunately, this will not work in that scenario. From what you describe you would be best off with a timer for that light, however if there are outdoor flood lights you could use motion activated control. That way the light will only come on when motion is detected and shut off shortly after. http://www.homedepot.com/p/Westek-Outdoor-Motion-Activated-Light-Control-with-Adjustable-Off-Times-OMLC5BC/203675446

Can this be used with food lights?

If it fits into a standard lamp socket and does not exceed the wattage limit, I don't see why not. I have only used 40-60W bulbs so far.

How does timer work I can't see hours

Answer

To set the auto off timer, after installing the unit, make sure the power to the lamp is "On" and press the "Timer" button. The first press will make the light bulb flash 1 time - and set the unit to shut off after 2 hours. press again the light will flash 2 times, setting it for off after 5 hours, 3 times - 3 flashes setting it for off after 8 hours, the fourth time will cause it to flash 4 times, setting it to turn off at dawn. You can also hit the random button to have the unit randomly switch between 2, 5, 8 and Dawn. I have uploaded the instruction sheet to the sight as well, and it should show at the top soon.

Where do I find the instructions on how to program?

Read the Info & Guides, Instructions / Assembly to the right side of the product overview. This Light Control can be programmed to automatically turn your light fixture ”ON” at dusk and “OFF” after 2, 5, or 8 hours or dawn depending how you program it. 1. Turn “OFF” the power to the lamp with the lamp switch or at the wall switch, if used. 2. Screw the control into a lamp socket and screw a bulb into the control. 3. Rotate photocell opening to face a strong source of daylight, but away from any artificial or reflected light source such as street lights or car headlights. 4. Now turn "ON" the power to the lamp. Unit is programmed by simply pressing the Timer button. The first push of this button will cause the light to flash 1 time and set the control to turn the light off after 2 hours. The second push of this button will cause the light to flash 2 times and set the control to turn the light off after 5 hours. The third push of this button will cause the light to flash 3 times and set the control to turn the light off after 8 hours. The fourth push of this button will cause the light to flash 4 times and set the control to turn the light off at dawn. To confuse possible intruders, a press of the Random button will choose at random between 2, 5, or 8 hours off after light turns on at dusk. Each night the control will choose a different time until control is re-programmed or the power is turned off. 5. Your Light Control is now programmed. 6. If unit is installed in a dark room and a different light is turned on, the control will turn off the lamp it is controlling. When the room light is turned off, the control will turn the light on and resume the program. 7. In the case of power failures, the control will still operate each day, once power is restored, defaulting to dusk to dawn until you re-program it. To re-program, simply follow these instructions again, starting with #4.

Will these work with outdoor recessed can lights?

Asked by Dave January 16, 2016

Answers

Yes, these can be used in an outdoor light, however, if it will fit your particular light depends entirely on the light make and model that you have.

I purchased this item over a year ago and it is still going strong. I believe it is made by Amertac. I had to experiment with sensor position the first night because the reflection of the light bulb inside the lamp housing tricked the sensor into thinking it was daylight, which turned off the light. Once I got the sensor positioned, I programmed it for dusk to dawn. Cons: It comes on earlier in the evening than I would like, and also on rainy dreary days. Pros: Piece of mind and cost. Also, HD carries different brands and styles of screw-in light sensors, but this particular model # SLC6CBC-4 is the best rated. At my store, it was stocked in the lamp repair area - and not with the other light sensors.
