      I have a sodium light on my barn in the woods. It is dark enough during the day with all the very tall trees, that the sensor doesn't turn the light off until about 1pm usually. And it comes on again around 5pm. It is a 'Dusk to Dawn' Photocell twist on sensor like this one, which I bought to replace the previous one. Is this new one possibly defective? How good are these sensors? Did I just get a crappy one?


      I was trying to find one that I could program to adjust the sensitivity of the sensor. But the only one I can find is this one to program how long until after dusk it turns off. And it still comes on a Dusk.

      Do I have any other options? I've googled for an hour and have only found about 2-3 programmable sensors, but they are all like this. They come on at Dusk.

      Any help is appreciated. Thanks. :thumbsup:

      Hey buddy I haven't installed a light of that type but have done similar installations. I could've posted a bunch of options for you but ill just paste this link for you to check and see if they have what you are looking for. I saw a few that had a variety of choices as far as lighting sensitivity. You can set it at whatever level you'd like to meet the issues you've been having. Hope this helps. GL to you my friend.;););)
