    Hello! New user here, i hope i choose the right subforum

    I'm looking for a relay that closes the circuit (lets power through) when it senses darkness (or rather, a lack of light)

    Background; I want to install LEDs under the drawers in my kitchen so the floor is lit. These LEDs should only be on when it is dark in the kitchen - so when it's daytime and when the main lights are on they need to shut off.

    I've searched through eBay and ordered some "photosensitive relays", i just didn't read the fine print properly, cause' they only close the circuit when they sense light - opposite of what i need.

    Thanks in advance
