Automatically turns the light ON at dusk and OFF at dawn!
Dusk-to-Dawn Photocells are circuit elements used in automatic light controller systems that enable a light to turn on when the surrounding environment is dark and off when it becomes bright again by telling the circuit when to provide more or less current.
This 120V dusk to dawn photocell is compatible with Incandescent, Fluorescent, LED, Halogen, Mercury Vapor, CFLs, and High-Pressure Sodium Bulbs.
The photocell mounts through a standard 1/2'' or 3/4'' NPT Knockout.
Compatible with 120VAC, 50/60Hz / 1800W Tungsten / 1100VA Ballast
