Motion light converted to dusk-to-dawn

Motion light converted to dusk-to-dawn

This light used to have 2 90w Par38 lamps and a motion sensor. I replaced the lamps with some Cree 150w = LED par38's and replaced the motion sensor with a Defiant photocell. The new LED bulbs are a huge brightness upgrade, too.

Nice! I would have done the same thing. Screw those motion sensors lol. If you don't need the light, shut the thing off!

You could combine the PC with the motion sensor, which is common here for motion sensor floodlights.

Please forgive me if my choice of my words looks like offensive, while that isn't my intention.

I only working with the European date format (dd.mm.yyyy).

I lives in Israel, which is a 230-240V, 50hz country.

The motion sensors normally have a photocell as well but no one likes the motion sensors.

Usually some AC powered motion sensors fail to light up the lights. (depending on the quality of the sensor) Some use a cheap relay inside the unit, and tends to burn up with high wattage lamps. But it depends on the tugsten load of the relay, of course the relay contacts are in amps, but a bit of math solving to find the tugsten load and the VA load of the relay, that the relay can and cannot do.

Some use 10A contacts and some use 14 or 15A contacts, which for me the 14A or 15A relay contacts are the way to go if your going to control wattage lamps. Plus I know ballasts are in VA loads.

Save the Cooper OVWs!! Don't them down by crap LED fixtures!!!

There is a LED floodlight with a motion sensor near Zalman Shne'ur 24 hostel, which turns on and off whenever it wanted.
