1) Yes, the light bulb needs to remain protected by the housing canopy portion due to weather issues.
2) Can you send me a picture of the light fixture box showing the photo eye and light bulb canopy cover so I can see what you have in place?
OK, that is not a problem.
I will be logged on here tomorrow, so just reply back to me then. Sound like a plan?
Not sure? Must have something to do with the web site.
I have opted out of the question since I have not hear back from you.
No need to reply back to me. You will be notified if another expert picks up the question.
Hi, I'm Mike and I'll be assisting you. I agree with Kevin that the photo cell needs to be protected. The lamp, if a PAR Flood may not be affected by water but it's screw shell will be. I suggest not using that type of photo cell. The fixture head should mounted on a box with extra threaded holes
Get a photo cell that mounts on one of them
