Will this work for LED lamps in an outdoor fixture??
Michael M on Mar 25, 2018
BEST ANSWER: These are recommended to be used with incandescent light bulbs only, not LED.
I bought a Woods dusk to dawn light control. I screwed it into my lamp light and screwed the bulb in. I turned the light on at night and the light stayed on and did not turn off the bulb . The instructions said to turn the bulb on - when dark, the photocell will turn on the bulb and the cycle begins. I do no understand , I have already turned the light on. I am using a lamp. Does that make a difference?
Lavone B on Jul 22, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This accessory should be used with the light fixture's switch turned On. It will work in most light fixtures including a lamp.

The accessory will turn the bulb on when the surrounding light is dim or dark. If your lamp has a heavy or dark shade or the room is dimly lit, the accessory may be "On" all the time.

To test if the accessory is functioning properly, you can shine a flashlight onto the small tube on the side. The bulb will turn off if the accessory is working properly.

Doesn't work well in shaded areas
Bought two for two outdoor lamps - both are in the shade. Installed them but the lights stay on all day. If i shine a flashlight toward the sensor, the lamp goes out so it seems its just not sensitive enough if lamp is in shaded area.

Pros: Attractive Design, Quality Construction, Easy To Install

Cons: No Performance Improvement

Poor sensitivity, limits use.
The problem with this product is it's sensitivity.
It activates light in any low light situation such as any heavily overcast day.
Product also does not fit into a deep socket, thus limiting it's use in some light fixtures.

Pros: Attractive Design, Easy To Install, Quality Construction

Cons: No Performance Improvement, Out door use

Doesnt works with LED bulbs, poorly works with CFL bulbs. Use only with incandescent - which I dont use, hence the sensor was useless.

Pros: Easy To Install

didn't want a strobe
Bought 3 of these light controls with 3 outside lamps. They're supposed to go on automatically when it's dark and when dawn, shut off. Didn't happen. Instead, they 'strobe' lit the whole time until neighbors alerted us. Most embarrassing.
