Maybe there are still some left...from wherever you bought it?
So, where's the best place to buy the "identical" light sensor. BTW, my lamp post is on the 15 amp general lighting/garage door opener circuit.

After spending a lot of time figuring out that it had to be the sensor, I took it back to ACE and they gave me a different brand that worked fine.

As mentioned above, just take the old one to Lowe’s, Home Depot, Ace, Etc....and ask them for one that is compatible (I think most of them are compatible).

I had to buy three lamp post light sensors from Ace(South Trace Plaza) on 466, before the third one worked...Wired them just the same, as I (de)wired.. This, about eight months ago....

I had a problem every time it rained the post light would go out and the GFI would trip. As I finally found, it was water getting into the outside electrical outlet (which is on the same circuit GFI). Replaced the receptical and sealed the outlet. Problem solved.
