Will LED bulbs work with photocells?
Also, do LED bulbs work with motion sensors?
The answer is yes. LED lights can work with motion sensors with the right configurations. A lot of lighting technologies today make use of motion sensors attached to LEDs. These luminaries monitor movement in a given area, lighting up when movement is detected.
Additionally, how do photocells work in lights? Photocell. A photocell is a resistor that changes resistance depending on the amount of light incident on it. A photocell operates on semiconductor photoconductivity: the energy of photons hitting the semiconductor frees electrons to flow, decreasing the resistance. (Right) A simple light-level-detection circuit.
In respect to this, how do you wire a photocell to an LED?
CAUTION: BLACK WIRE IS 120 VOLTS, SO TURN OFF SWITCH OR CIRCUIT BREAKER. Connect sensor's black wire to black wire coming from house. Connect red sensor wire to light's black wire . Connect all 3 white wires (from house, from sensor and from light) together.
Can one photocell control multiple lights?
A single photo control device can turn on and off multiple fixtures on a circuit. This means you can have one photocell on the north or south facing wall of a building that controls all wall packs, parking lot lights, or other outdoor fixtures for the space.
