Hard wired night lights


I have been in my home for several years and I can not locate the power source for 5 night lights that are installed in my hallways. These lights are wired directly to my homes electrical system and they come on every night and go off during daylight hours. I can't find any light sensors or switches that are controlling these lights. Does anyone have any ideas on how to locate the controls for these lights?

On the lights themselves? Just a guess.

There probably are no controls other than the circuit breakers.

I second somewhere on the lights if you cannot find anything else.

Possibly a photo cell on the exterior somewhere?

P&S makes permanently mounted/wired night lights:




The photocell is built-in
