Remote Photocell Unit – Dusk To Dawn (12V)

Remote Photocell Unit – Dusk To Dawn (12V)

£12.00 inc VAT

This 12v remote photocell is very hard to come by and is unique to Lumena Lights. It is ideal for creating external low voltage photocell units within waterproof junction boxes or for integrating into 12v garden lights where a light sensor is required. Not only can it control your outdoor lighting systems, but also other 12v electrical equipment which may be required to run only at night time. Being integrated into a junction box creates a great versatile outdoor night sensor. It can be located at the start of a circuit to control everything, part way through to only control certain fittings – the possibilities are endless.

A photocell is in theory a light sensor, automatically turning your outdoor lights on at dusk and off again at dawn; a handy solution which also saves energy without the need to manually turn the lights off in the moment which can easiily 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 (interchangable).
