Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tried and tested! I've purchased several of these over the years and never had one fail yet. Used in conjunction with a timer you'll get a good reliable light control system.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good budget photocell It does the job and it’s easy to fit. It could do with a way of testing it that doesn’t involve covering it in a hoodie.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does what it claims I fitted this easily enough, BUT I found that the instructions for testing were wrong: It should, when powered up in daylight, turn the light on for ten or more seconds, it turns on for two! It should, when covered, turn on the light after 20 seconds, it doesn't! I left it powered up and it works fine at dusk till dawn, just don't rely on the instruction leaflet for testing. I tried two of these and both behaved the same. Also it needs a gland for where the cable exits, luckily I had one already.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Photocell Standalone Sensor These are great sensors to fit / use. Over ten or so years Ive fitted around 20 or so .(All supplied by Screwfix) and have had ZERO problems. They're east to fit (just LIVE / NEUTRAL and a SWITCH WIRE) DONT Forget you'll need a 20mm black Stuffing gland to lock the cable out of the bottom. They'll switch LED or Standard incandescent Lamps via the built in relay and are good for Automatic Security lighting use . Many thanks

Is there a minimum switching load for an LED lamp?

Asked by: Wozo100

Can I fit a timer inline to the photocell in order to control overnight lighting

Asked by: Hgfde
I have a timer set permanently for an on time of 12 hours all year round (6pm to 6am) and this photocell in series with it. Lights will only then switch on once light level falls enough and timer is supplying a live to the cell. Only reason I have the timer is to prevent lighting being on from 3.30PM to around 9am in deepest winter.

Does fast off-on override the timer?

Most PIRs allow you to switch from on to off and then on again rapidly to switch the lights on permanently. Does this model do that?
Asked by: IanYork
I can answer this myself. Despite this being the first item returned for any search term including "PIR", it's actually just a dusk 'til dawn switch that triggers based on ambient light. It doesn't use PIR to switch the light on.

Not working is the load insufficient?

I`m using this for 4x4w 240V LED soffit lights but it s not working at all, but, when I connect the lights direct to the mains, perfect. This is the second sensor I`ve tried and assumed the first was faulty. Any suggestions?
Asked by: Colint1960
Hi guys- I`ve sorted it, it was a nick in the live when I peeled back and the insulation. Its all good now. Cheers.
