Remote 12V Photocell Unit – Dusk to Dawn Sensor
This 12V AC photocell is very hard to come by and is unique to Lumena Lights. Create external low voltage photocell units by incorporating into waterproof junction boxes and integrate with 12V garden lights (AC or DC) where a light sensor is required. In addition to controlling outdoor lighting systems, it is compatible with other 12V electrical equipment. Control any 12V AC/DC item within maximum load which is required to run only at night time. Being integrated into a junction box creates a great versatile outdoor night sensor. Locate at the start of a circuit to control everything or part way through to only control certain fittings. The possibilities are endless.
A photocell is a light sensor. It automatically turns the circuit on at dusk and off again at dawn. This is a handy solution which also saves energy without the need to manually turn the lights off in the moment, which can easily be forgotten. Night time lighting also adds security and safety around the home with the surrounding area being illuminated during darkness.
The internal photocell box is not waterproof so must be located inside a waterproof box or fitting, however the protrusion of the sensor itself is IP44 and suitable to withstand outdoor weather conditions with the rubber washers sealing the exit hole. Both black and clear locking nuts and washers are supplied (interchangeable).
