Yard Light Sensor-Direction

Yard Light Sensor

My yard light is controlled by a light sensor that was installed in the pole some years ago. I live in Indianapolis, IN and would like to know the preferred direction the light sensor should be pointing. Because of the sensorís pole mounting, it is difficult to experiment with different positions.

Thanks,
Jerry

It's not exactly critical but it would normally point to the east.....where the sun rises from.

Thanks for the return. It currently points north and a neighborís points south. However, I donít feel my current placement is optimum.
