  2. We recently purchased a home with these lights, we painted the house and now they turn on and off. Any idea where the sensor would be located? Maybe the painters covered it with paint? Any ideas? Thank you!

    1. The “Dusk to Dawn Light” sensor is typically located on the top of the fixture or housing. This positioning allows the sensor to have an unobstructed view of the surrounding light conditions. It’s designed to automatically detect changes in ambient light levels and activate the light fixture at dusk (when it gets dark) and deactivate it at dawn (when it gets light). This feature helps provide convenient and energy-efficient outdoor lighting.

  3. I have a dusk till dawn bulb in a fixture over my garage and on my front stoop – purchased within the past 3 months. It’s not flickering but all of the sudden it will totally blink off and then on one time every few minutes I’d say. Any ideas?

    1. This behavior could be attributed to an overly sensitive sensor, which reacts to minor changes in light or nearby movements. Additionally, external factors like nearby light sources might be interfering with the sensor’s operation. To address this, you can attempt to adjust the sensor’s sensitivity if it allows for adjustments, and ensure there are no obstructions or sources of interference near the fixture. If the problem persists, consider reaching out to the manufacturer or consulting an electrician to diagnose and resolve any potential sensor or wiring issues for optimal functionality.

    1. Yes, nearby solar lights emitting light can potentially cause your dusk-to-dawn light to flash on and off. To address this, try adjusting the placement or orientation of the lights to minimize interference, and consider using shields or barriers to limit direct light reaching the dusk-to-dawn sensor.
