Photocell garage/porch light install problem


Bob -- unbelieveably the problem was two bad photosensors in a row. Proved it by bypassing the sensor and seeing the light working in basic on/off mode. 3rd unit ordered and it worked as advertised. What are the odds?
Thanks for the help. Best to you. -- Bill

Photocell garage/porch light install problem


Wow! I really missed the boat on your problem.
In post #1 the very first thing you said was that
you installed three identical lights.

I should have picked up on that and suggested
that you temporally swap one of the working
lights with the problem light. Sheesh!
