This item seems to be very well built and sturdy both mechanically and electrically. I bought it in the hope that it will last longer and be more stable than the sensors that come with outside lighting and which seem to fail within 12 months.
I installed it to switch a fluorescent entry light on at night and off at dawn for security and energy saving reasons. So far it is working perfectly.
2 things to note though: 1) The white cap does not fit tightly enough and will blow off in a wind - so I have added some thin foam draught excluder to tighten it. 2) The wiring diagram is insufficient for a DIY installation if you are not familiar with electric wiring so probably better to use an electrician. You will need a length of 2 way wiring between the sensor and the light fitting (no earth is needed in this wire).
However, if the manufacturer added a proper wiring diagram it would help considerably and aid safety. Otherwise easy to fix with 2 screws/plugs supplied.
Also, a rubber gland should be provided by the seller to seal the bottom cable-entry access point. Alternatively, buy one and fit it to stop ingress of moisture/insects. In view of the recent storms I have sealed the white dome permanently to the body with silicon sealant as a precaution to prevent it being blown off in a gale which would then expose the electrics.

This switch did all that I expected of it. It was very easy to fit and it went straight into service without difficulty. I use it to control a security light over my main entrance door.

This product actually should have a zero rating because, in my opinion, it is unsafe. It is sold as IP65 by this supplier which it clearly isn't. I would rate it as IP44 at best. The top is not secured and falls off if you turn it over. It could easily blow off in a strong wind, exposing all the electronics and mains to the elements. The main module is designed to unplug using what looks like an American style mains plug/socket arrangement with a token rubber gasket intended to keep the rain out. It would be as safe as using a domestic 13 amp plug and socket with a bit of draft excluded sponge strip. The cable is supposed to enter from below but no gasket is supplied. If someone with limited electrical knowledge fitted this a finger could be poked up inside to touch the mains terminals and that is ignoring the water ingress issue. There are no manufacturer's details anywhere on the box nor the instruction leaflet and the spelling on both is atrocious. The box does however have a CE mark - Yeh Right! DO NOT TOUCH THIS WITH A BARGE POLE!!

I was very pleased with this item, it replaced a sensor I was already using, It switched on at a nice low light level and off at a low light level so saved me more energy than the old sensor I using.

This looked to be a quality item at a special price and saved travelling ten miles. I unpacked on arrival and fitted it right away. It works great.

I use it to control a light at our back door, also small mains LED lamps around the patio. Mains fed was from cellar so switching on an off the light manually was going to be a pain. With this they are switched on automatically and off again. With LED lights and CFL lights the lights do not cost much to run and it is great coming home in the dark to see some lights on around the house.

The first model I had decided to stop functioning after several years of good service, so replaced it with the same model.
