What is this device for?
This dusk to dawn switch can automatically turn on or off any number of LightwaveRF receivers, such as dimmers, sockets or bulbs at dawn or dusk. This can improve the security of your home by simply setting up the sensor to turn the lights off at night if you aren’t home.
The sensor is wireless and portable and should be placed somewhere which will allow it to accurately record the outside light level. It is also waterproof so it can be placed outdoors, as long as it remains no more than 15m away from the connected LightwaveRF devices.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesnt work Turns on at dusk but doesnt turn off again at dawn, searching Lightwafe forum revealed this is a known fault, why it has not been repaired I do not know?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as it should when it should I've used this switch for about a year without touching it - it just works. I use it to switch on a security light and use a timer to switch it off again. Very good item.
