The Marinebeam 12VDC (or 24VDC) Weatherproof Dusk-to-Dawn Photocell Switch can be added to any 12VDC (or 24VDC) circuit to automatically turn on your lamps at dusk, and then automatically switch them back off at sunrise.
This twilight switch can be used with any of our DC LED lamps or incandescent lamps up to 120W total (security deck lights , or for adding to any anchor light or cockpit lights. Imagine the security and utility of always returning to the boat with plenty of light, or never again forgetting to turn on (or off) the anchor light or other critical lights when cruising.
This sensor switch's articulating sensor head is waterproof Lexan® polycarbonate, and its base is designed to be fitted on a weatherproof bulkhead, radar arch or enclosure, providing a waterproof seal by means of the included aluminum clamping nuts and sealing gasket. It requires a 3/4" mounting hole. It has a special 100% electronic dawn-to-dusk light-sensing circuit to minimize unwanted cycling, and to ensure that your lamps come on upon properly at dusk, and turn off again at dawn.

I keep my sailboat moored just off the Intracoastal Waterway and am required to burn an anchor light. This photocell has worked perfectly for a year in conjunction with charging the battery with a solar panel. Unfortunately when removing my bimini last year I gave it a hard blow and cracked the housing base. That didn't stop it from working. But because the price is quite reasonable I am replacing it with a new one.
VERY GOOD SERVICE,THANK YOU,ERIC
The product appears well-made, and is working perfectly with my boat anchor light. Item was delivered quickly.
