Photo cell sensor is great!
We have two coach lights at the end of our walkway that come on at dusk and go off at dawn. The sensor went out in one of the lights causing it to stay on all the time. We removed the sensor and were able to find the replacement available on Amazon. It arrived very quickly and was exactly as described by seller. It came with installation instructions, not that you really need them, because it is so simple to replace. We replaced the sensor and light works perfect now. Great quality item at a great price. Would definitely recommend this to others!!!

The unit worked perfectly as a replacement as a post light sensor. Just two items that would have made installation easier and the final installation perfect.
1) There was no mention in the instructions about a time delay in the "turn on" and "turn off" of the light the sensor was controlling. Not knowing this made the installer believe the unit was not working adding approximately 1/2 hour to the completion of the job. Taking that amount of time to realize there were delays in operating.
2)The fit of the unit on the lamp post was not perfect, but allowed a gap of about 1/16 inch around the top of the radius necessitating a calking seal to be required to keep rain water from entering the pipe.
Thankfully the unit is working properly.

Lasted 12 years cooking in the Florida sun.
Ridiculously expensive. C'mon guys - 30 bucks for a photo sensor. This is not hospital equipment! Now that I have that off my chest let me tell you that I like it. If you have to replace one of these it takes less than a minute. Two little screws hold it on the post (they get away easily) and then the sensor pulls out until the connector is outside the post. Disconnect the old, connect the new, shove it back in the post, install the two screws, go have a beer!
This thing is 2" in diameter and so is the hole in the post. You can't put this in a post with a small hole unless you knock it out to 2" - not easy or fun!
