Essential Info

The GE 18265 Indoor/Outdoor Light-Sensing Screw-In Socket has a built-in photo cell for automatically controlling your lights based on ambient light levels. General Electric's photo cell based lighting controls will automate your lighting in minutes. Photo-sensing lighting controls can save money on energy consumption by turning lights Off when they are not needed, and provide security at night with an at-home look by automatically turning your lights on. Photo cells detect natural light to turn the attached load On when light levels are low or non-existent, and Off when light is detected. If a dusk/dawn operation is not desired, the user can chose from additional countdown settings. Besides energy savings this device can be very useful in automating commonly used lighting for pathways surrounding the home, any other outdoor security or perimeter lights, and seasonal or holiday lighting. The 18265 can control a load of 300 watts if the bulb is base up, and 150 watts if the bulb is base down. This device is powered by a typical 120V AC wall receptacle, no batteries are required.

G.E. also offers an indoor version for incandescent only.

    Works great.
    PAUL -- union, KY   10/26/2012
    On at night and off at dawn function didn't work well at all., Used them in 2 lanterns, one on each side of garage door. One would stay on all day, the other wouldn't come on until it was pitch dark.
    LAWRENCE -- flagler beach, FL   5/14/2012
    An absolute failure. Bought four and they ALL failed to work within 5 days of use. Another INFERIOR GE product.
    CAROL -- belen, NM   3/24/2012
    It took a long time to find this light control. Most sellers do not distinguish between Flourescent and Incandescent. Flourescent will not work in an Incandescent control like this one. So beware! And thank you Smarthome for supplying the proper unit!
