SOURCE: 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.

Testing photo cell


These devices typically require a minute or two to change state from ON to OFF when the the threshold of light and darkness is reached. Place black electrical tape over the sensor and allow a minute for it to turn the light on. Make sure that no light shines into the sensor or that the sensor can not see light in the night time.

Lastly, double check instructions and wiring. White should be connected to BOTH the neutral incoming power AND the light fixture's white wire(s). Most times, black is 120V source, and red is the switched 120V out to the fixture.

If it isn't working, make sure the lamps are good. This photocell is suitable for use with compact fluorescent lamps, fluorescent lamps and other fixtures that use ballasts and transformers as long as they do not require more than 840 VA.

Good luck!

I have the same problem listed above. I bought a touch and glow photocell at Lowes to go along with a yard lamp with lights on three arms. It is wired exactly as directed. Black to black, power source...


You have 120volt photocell.

Wiring sounds correct.
Lights are on all the time, even in daylight.
How is the power by-passing the photocell shut-off?
Disconnect ground wire to make sure there is not a ground fault causing circuit to complete on ground wire.
Otherwise the photocell might be bad.

I would like a wiring diagram for an outdoor receptacle controlled by a photocell. Photo cell has 1 each black wire, red wire and white wire.


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.

Also take advantage of fixya phone service.
For a price, expert speaks with you over phone while you work on circuit or any do-it-yourself project.
Fixya is always less expensive than a service call.

Wire connection from lighting ballast


What you do is cut the wires from the old ballast that feed to the fixture end connectors then 'wire nut' the new ballast wires to the old wires.

Photocell and circuit breaker


Hi, Here is my clarification of the instructions for you. The photocell must be protected by at least a 10 amp circuit breaker. The photocell may be installed next to the light fixture. ( not the breaker). Good Luck, this should Fixya!

A t104 intermatic turns on and off sporadically


Replace the trip levers, I dont think your timer turns off and on without trip levers? Unless your outdoor fixtures have photo cells on them or wired to them! Are they coming on at night and shutting off at Daylight, if so they are connected to a photocell or have internal photocells which means you don't need the timer unless you want to control different on off times.
