Sparks Electrical News March 2023



The benefits of day/night bulbs and day/night sensors T he rising cost of electricity has South Africans looking for savvy solutions to save money when illuminating their homes. Day/night light bulbs and day/night sensors are proving to be one of the leading ways of keeping costs down, but saving on electricity is just one of the many benefits they offer. The functionality of day/night sensitivity: • Makes arriving home late at night safer. • Gives the impression that your house is occupied when it’s not (especially handy during the holiday season). • Eliminates the risk of forgetting to switch off lights in the morning before you leave home for work. • Gives you one less thing to think about in the evenings. Day/night bulbs and sensors contain an integrated photocell that registers the brightness of daylight and

activates when the level of light reaches the preset level. When darkness falls, an electrical current begins to flow, and the light automatically turns on. But this doesn’t mean you should be concerned about clouds, car lights, and lighting, which can all cause brief changes in lighting levels. The sensor is programmed to check for false light levels and will not be activated by them. Keep in mind that while a day/night bulb can simply be installed like a normal light bulb, day/night sensors will require wiring.
