LAP Standalone Night Sensor Photocell
dawn to dusk sensor
first one purchased did not work obtained replacement next day the only reason i got this is because i have had this model fitted to my shed and for ease of existing fixtures and wiring i purchased yet another on to my 6th in as many years going on past experience this will last 1 week after the warranty runs out !!! it only controls 4 x 11watt low energy bulbs like a moth to the flame i will be buying another one in 13 months no doubt

As with all LAP products, I never expect a lot due to price, and as usual this exceeded my expectations! Great little unit, easy to install and connect, works a treat, I only had one issue, a RED LED on the front, why would I want a red light on the front of my house? A couple of pieces of white insulating tape dimmed the glow so I know it's there but not obvious from three doors down, did the trick!

First class. I know have thee of these (front porch, side porch, decorative garden lights) and they're brilliant.

great idea just unreliable
I bought this for drive lighting despite having read the reliability issues mentioned below.
Initially worked great but then failed so I bought a replacement second unit thinking it may have been a one off. This also failed last week and so I have now replaced with a standard photocell from Screwfix and put the circuit on a timer.
It is as if the internal processor fails as the red LED lights up but no power goes out to your lights. BTW the red LED is a negative if the unit is not tucked away out of sight.
