  • 12V Photocell Sensor Switch for Photocontrol of 12V lights. Dust-to-Dawn Sensor.
  • 12V remote sensor photocell switch for LED lights 12V DC


Our 12VDC 2-piece weather-proof Dusk-to-Dawn photocell switch is perfect for mounting outdoors, in salt air, or wet environments. The sensor head is hermetically sealed, and can be mounted remotely to allow you to terminate the connections in a protected area.

It is simple to wire, and simple to mount. This heavy-duty sensor switch is perfect for any 12VDC lamps or other loads up to 75W that you want to turn on at dusk, and turn off again at dawn.

Perfect for switching anchor lights, dock-lights, underwater lights, security lights, CCTV cameras, solar projects, etc. Also great at home or on the farm.

Very popular item for hunters using the switch for feral hog and wild boar feeding stations. 

Because the sensor is separated from the switch control box by 7" of wire (it can be extended but is polarity sensitive), it allows for convenient and/or discrete mounting configurations. Great for locating the sensor at the mast-top for controlling an anchor light. Can be mounted in an enclosure, through a cockpit panel or bulkhead, etc.

Easy to wire. See installation instructions for proper wiring. This unit is normally-closed without power: if the power connection to the unit is lost, the sensor is bypassed and power is delivered continuously. For off-grid solar lighting installations, a low-voltage cutoff is recommended.

    Works Perfectly

    Purchased to control 9 watt LED lights(4) on my dock which are powered by a deep cycle battery charged by solar panels. This is a hard to find product which serves my need perfectly.
