Photocell dusk til dawn

I rent. They have a photocell dusk til dawn light at the front door. I have no control over the light. I just hung Christmas lights and want that light off to better see the Christmas lights. How can I turn this dang light off and keep it from turning on when it gets dark??

Unscrew the light bulb. Otherwise you would need to disconnect the light which would require removing the fixture and disconnecting the wires.

There is no bulb. I took the light cover off and there is just a photocell.

Where is the light bulb located?
If you can't unscrew the bulb, better not do anything else. Ask the landlord if he can disable it or allow you to do it.

I'd imagine it's there since it's a rental unit and is required. Maybe you could ask the landlord if the photocell could be replaced with a motion sensor and you'll buy.
