A photocell detects when the sun is setting or rising and turns fixtures, such as outdoor lighting, on or off based on the time of day. Photo controls will help save energy and money when installed with outdoor light fixtures in industrial, commercial, and residential applications. Almost every photocell has a dusk-to-dawn feature which automatically turns the light on when the sun goes down and turns them off when the sun rises, so you do not have the hassle of trying to remember to turn the lights off.
Stars and Stripes Lighting carries a variety of different styles of photocells from Precision Multiple Controls and Morris Products. We have a variety of different Twist Lock photo controls that enable you to twist the sensor to keep your lights switched on all day or only on in the evening. Photocells are very helpful with night-lights, including security fixtures, floodlights and other exterior fixtures. Photocells allow you the convenience of having to remember to alter your timer as time changes. Check out our selection of energy-saving add-ons here at Stars and Stripes Lighting.
