How to maintain dusk to dawn outdoor lights

Cleaning and Maintenance

  • Clean surfaces and bulbs regularly: Use a mild detergent and a soft cloth to clean the surfaces of the light, especially the glass cover and bulb, to remove dust, dirt and insect residue. This helps maintain light clarity and illumination.
  • Clean the surroundings: Regularly check the surroundings of the fixture to make sure there is no standing water, leaves or other debris accumulating around the fixture. These debris may hinder the normal operation of the sensor or affect the heat dissipation of the fixtures.

Inspection and Commissioning

  • Check cord connections: Periodically check wire connections and plugs to make sure they are not damaged, rusted or loose. If any problems are found, replace or repair them promptly to avoid electrical failure or safety hazards.
  • Test sensors and automatic switch functions: Test the sensor and auto-switch function by manually overriding the sensor or adjusting the fixture's brightness sensor. Ensure that the fixtures automatically turn on when it is dark and turn off during the day to save energy and extend the life of the fixtures.

Protect and Waterproof the Treatment

  • Check waterproofing: Regularly check the waterproof performance of the luminaire, especially the joints and sealing parts. Make sure the seals are intact and free from cracks or deterioration to prevent rainwater infiltration and protect the internal circuitry.
  • Waterproofing: Enhance the waterproof performance of the luminaire by treating the joints and switching parts with professional waterproof tape or coating when necessary. This effectively prevents water intrusion and reduces the risk of corrosion and damage.

Regular Maintenance Program

  • Establish a maintenance schedule: Establish a regular maintenance schedule based on how often the fixture is used and the environmental conditions. It is recommended that a thorough inspection and cleaning be conducted quarterly to ensure that the fixtures are always in optimal condition.
  • Record maintenance: Set up a maintenance file to record the date of each maintenance, the content of the maintenance and the problems found. This helps to identify potential faults in a timely manner and develop a maintenance plan accordingly to ensure the long-term reliable operation of the luminaire.
