Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very easy to assemble & adjust, what is not mentioned is it is the on when light and off when dark. It does have a change over relay but may not suit if you want to switch something on in when dark.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from nice kit I brought this kit so as to use for daylight control of a fan. I have not used it or made up the kit yet, so unable to form a judgement as to its use but as a kit I was impressed.

I require a device to switch on a 12v led floodlight at night. It is powered from a small 12v battery (12v 12aH). What is the current draw when it is in its off state? And is it suitable for this type of application?

Would this be suitable for controlling a garden water feature, i.e. on in daylight and off at night?

The description of this product says that it has adjustable light sensitivity. If I screen out all other light, and put the sensor against the mobile phone screen, would it switch ON from the light emitted when an old mobile phone rings?

High, the N19JG says it needs a 12V supply. Would this work ok with a 9V pp3 battery ?

Asked by: mike
Unfortunately we are unable to guarantee full compatibility for this item in your intended application, as 12v has been advised.
