Dusk To Dawn Sensor Question....

A customer wants me to put an LED floodlight on their front lawn that will plug into an outdoor timer that also has a photocell for dusk to dawn applications.

Will the light from the floodlight affect the photocell from coming on at dusk and turning off a dawn?

The receptacle where this gadget will plug in is on the front of the house where they want the light to shine.

Democrats are doing more to undermine our country than Russians could ever hope to.

Re: Dusk To Dawn Sensor Question....

You may have to turn the photo cell towards the wall. Justin had this problem, this is how it got solved.
