Dusk to Dawn Lighting: How It Works

Dusk-to-dawn lighting uses a photocell or time clock to control when outdoor lighting activates during nighttime hours. Unless it is a motion-detecting light, the bulb will produce light throughout the night through a timer control. Dusk-to-dawn lights apply to building entrances, building perimeters, public pathways, roads, and other public areas. Naturally, they are only applicable outdoors.

Timer Controls

A time clock is a dial connected to one or more lights that must be set manually. To operate the lights, set the start and stop tabs to the appropriate hours, turn the time clock on, and let it run.

Photocells are preferred between the two types of dusk-to-dawn lighting timer controls. They work in tune with the setting and rising of the sun, so your premises will have sufficient lighting exactly when visitors need it. With a time clock, you will need to change the timing manually to adjust for daylight savings and changing seasons. With a photocell, you have less work to do.

Benefits of Dusk-to-Dawn Lighting

LED dusk-to-dawn lighting with photocell timer controls allows commercial properties, streets, and parking lots to maximize electricity consumption. LED lights use far less energy than other types of lighting, such as halogen, fluorescent, or incandescent bulbs. Moreover, they last several years at a time. One can control a photocell’s light sensitivity, so they always come on when most timely.
