We have defiant S-751m photo control sockets, but when installed the lights stay on 24x7. Is there some secret to get these to turn on dusk to dawn?

I installed the defiant S-751m photo sensor sockets into drive lights, but the lights stay on 24x7.  Is there some secret on getting them to work dusk to dawn?

Hello Bwirth22.  Welcome to the Community!

Defiant sockets typically come with a plunger type center electrode that allows power contact even when the socket is not tightly screwed in.  In this way you can make sure that the photo cell is pointing out into the sun rather than orientated towards the back or sides. 

Some models include a removable lens shield that can reduce blinking.  You may want to try it without the shield if one exists.

If those 2 remedies fail, then I would return the unit and get a replacement.

Chris.
