RE: Building an enclosure for a solar power project

in STEMGeeks3 months ago

I have a photoresistor in my night lighting setup and I have a timer that is in series with the resistor for light levels. Enclosed ones are available that would mount to the side of the box and are weather proof. This is the type I have and it works perfectly. It is nice to be able to angle it so it sees the sun light and correctly turns the lights on and off.

Oh nice! I was thinking of doing a light sensor but just decided to use a programmable timer.. if I cant get it working I may go with your setup.
