We had to set it to the 'on' position and use a timer switch instead.

If the dusk sensor worked for me, I would rate it quite highly and with a time switch it still does work. Just be aware of this limitation.

All in all, if this were re-written with updated references, it would be better and also I wonder if it would have been better split across the different topics with more effort in the LDOMS area. It is however a good book, it does… Read more
