Hello and welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you with your electrical question.

1) Is the photo sensor a separate component or is it built into a light fixture?

2) Do you have a multimeter and some black electrical tape available?

Since I have not heard back from you, I will opt out of the question and place it back to the open board. No need to reply back to me, you will be notified if another expert picks up the question.
