SOURCE: i want to wire a photocell to overide my T101

You need to come off the line side of the clock to feed your photocell. And then from the load side of the photocell you can feed to the load side of the time clock. Leave the time clock wired the way it is now. What this will do is feed the light with the photocell or the time clock, but keep in mind by doing this the light will always remain on when it is dark. There is no other way to do it.

SOURCE: I would like a wiring diagram for an outdoor

If I understand correctly, you want to add a photocell to existing receptacle.

Start by looking at receptacle:
Receptacle has 3 different colored screws.
Green screw for bare ground wire
Brass screws with black Hot wire connected.
Silver screws with white Neutral wire.

How to wire photocell to receptacle.
Remove black Hot wire off of brass screw and connect black wire to photocell-black wire. This will power the photocell switch.
Connect photocell-red wire to brass screw on receptacle. This will turn receptacle on-off whenever photocell switch turns on-off.
Connect photocell-white wire to silver screw, and this will complete circuit to photocell switch so the switch is able to operate.
All white Neutral wires are connected to silver screws.

How do you connect a photo cell to a 220v HID fixture?


You can connect photo eye white wire to ground wire, and it will work, since each hot wire in 240V circuit carries 110V to ground.
But this installation is not code.
It is not necessarily dangerous if you are only person working on electric circuits, and you remember what you did, and don't work inside main box without turning off power.

See illustrations.

Running a White neutral wire from nearby outlet is best solution.

Or buy 240Volt photo eye.

When do I need to use a glass shield for my aquarium lighting?


When you are using a metal halide a glass shield is a necessity. Metal halides get really hot and one drop of water could cause the bulb to explode. A glass shield would also filter out the UV rays.

My house is wired thru a 120v photocell for the exterior lights. It will not turn off and the lens is clean. There is no wall box behind it. There is just a small black photocell in the exterior stucco....


If you can't remove or replace that photocell, you can bypass it. Since the lights stay on, you could locate the circuit elsewhere and wire into that location another photocell or timer or both.

The lights do not go off ?? Is it a bad photocell? They are on all day..and night..


Photocells go bad.
If photocell was working before and stopped working, then photocell is bad.
If photocell never worked, then check wiring.
I buy cheap 120Volt photocells at home center, and when they go bad, buy same brand again, and return bad one in new package if bad one still looks new.

Intermatic has 120V and 240V photocells.
