Thread: Need bulbs that will work with photocell / dawn dusk

    Default Need bulbs that will work with photocell / dawn dusk

    Have four CFL lights for the front of the house that would be great except that they keep knocking the 2-wire photocell out of commission. I was wondering, would I be able to use a dimmable LED? I hate to have to put the incandescent bulbs back in.

    Thanks,
    Glen

    I'd never use an ordinary non-dimmable CFL with a photocell control,
    which is like using it with a dimmer i.e. triac control; but I guess you've
    found that out.

    Your should be able to use a dimmable LED bulb. I've just tried this
    combo and seems OK.
