A light sensor is a device that transforms light energy into electromagnetic radiation or photons and can perceive the variation of lighting in a certain place. This lighting is what can be detected by the human eye. Its operating principle consists of a derivation of electron emission, known in physics as the photoelectric method, which contemplates that, when the energy collides with metals, they jump, generating the electric current. It is made up of an emitter and receiver. In the case of the light sensor, this process is noticed by the emitter, the receiver generates the final result of said process, which is known as output.

Blackhawk Supply has listed high-rated light sensors that would help conserve energy for its users. According to their website, “If you want to monitor the light inside or outside your building, you need a light control sensor. We have two of the best products in the industry like Light/LUX Sensors to help you check the LUX levels”. This shows the level of confidence they have in their product.

Aside from the quality, they ensured that most of their products have NEMA 3R enclosure to ensure that they are protected from rain, dripping water, snow, ice, etc., more reason why users have a 5 years warranty on all of their products.
