Dusk sensor on a timer

Post by nc52net » Thu Jan 18, 2018 11:08 am

Hi,

I have a dusk dawn sensor that is providing the on signal for my lights with the off signal coming from a standard timer. The problem I am having is that the dusk / dawn sensor continually puts out its ON signal throughout the night and as a result the lights get turned back on again. Is there any way to only act on the dusk / dawn signals during a timed period of the day?

Here's an idea:

Put the dusk sensor in a Nexa controlled power outlet.

Set your timer to first power off the outlet with the dusk sensor, then let the timer power off the lights.

Now the dusk sensor wont send any ON signals :D

Program the timer to power on the dusk sensor by lunchtime, and it'll work the next evening.
