Electrical – Do you know any switches which turns on/off based on day light


I am looking for having some sensor based switches which will turn on/off the lights based on the light conditions during the day (i.e. turn on when there is less light and turn off when there is more light)

Also, is there a way to connect this switch with multiple light source?

Please let me know.

I was just looking at light switches last night at Home Depot. There's enough options to make your head spin.

Photosensitive light switches are mainly used for outdoor applications, but some look like they should do fine indoors if oriented properly.

Automatic Dusk to Dawn Light Control - Screws into a light socket
