Photo Electric Switch
 
There's a switch inside my garage that operates two outside lights on either side of my garage door. I've been in the house a 10 years and for some unknown reason I've gone through at least four automatic timers. I would like to try a photo electric switch in this location, but in order for it to work, I would need a switch that has the photo eye on a lead so that I could extend it to the adjacent window sill, which is about 18 inches away from the junction box where the switch would be installed. I've search the internet for such a product but can't seem to locate any. Does anyone know if something like this exists?

Thanks,
Goose:wink:

You can get photo cell sockets, that screws into the fixture under the light bulb. No extra wiring and it works better.
