Outdoor LED Solar lighting


Recommended Posts

I haven't seen LED lamps with built in day/night sensors, but it here in Johannesburg you get standalone sensors that can be used to control LED lights. I've done this at home, and I'm no electrican. They are encased in little tubes, which means you can aim them in a specific direction. You need to take care they don't pick up reflected light or another light otherwise they will endless cycle on and off. 

The tube is maybe 5mm in diameter, so if you're handy you can drill holes in the light housing and mount the sensor in that housing, with the just the tip of the tube protruding (or even  flush with the housing) and held in place with a dab of silicon.
