Weatherproof Sunset Switch

The Weatherproof Sunset Switch is used to switch outdoors lights (or indoors light when applicable) off when they are not required in daylight.

In its most basic form, the unit senses outdoors light level and switches a relay on and off, thus turning the lights wired to it on or off. Traditionally the lights wouldturn on during sunset, therefore it is commonly known as a Sunset Switch.

Unlike other sunset switches on the market, the CABAC Sunset Switch features more than 1 mode of operation. In fact it is a 3 in 1 device that incorporates 3 different programmed switching modes/sequences.

Mode 1 | Standard mode:
Traditional dusk 'til dawn switching - turns lights on andoff when a set level of ambient light is reached.

Mode 2 | Timer mode:
‘OFF’ time after sunset can be set by the installer (useful when the lights are only required to turn on during the 1st part of the night).

Mode 3 | ECO mode (patent pending):
Turns off for a period of up to 35% of the night, adapting and adjusting with the seasons. The unit will turn on for 50% of the length of night then turns off for up to 35% of the night and then turns back on until dawn. This is most useful when returning and leaving home at the beginningof the evening and the dark hours of the morning. This mode provides direct savings as the light is turned off during the night when it is not needed.

Note: More detailed information (including diagrams and charts) is available, see Technical Data.
