Photocell or digital timer for outdoor garage lights
I'd like to get a photocell or timer for my garage lights.
I'm not sure what to go with but from what I've found there is a screw in photocell that has a 2, 5 and 8 hour timer. Sounds great but there could be issues with the sensitivity of the unit working properly.
I then found a digital timer I could hardwire at the switch location inside the garage.
My question is whether you believe the timer or photocell will leak more electricity and furthermore does either have any type of risk as far as overheating, life of the wiring, etc?
