The switch uses a LDR to turn on a lamp post light when dark and off when light. I can not get it to work as it does not turn on at all.

Wiring was done as instructed by instructions.

Main source from house. Correct wiring of source power was verified with Electrical Outlet tester. Regardless of the lighting, the light does not turn on.
light bulb and source power were checked and working.

What I am looking to do is test the switch for verification of fault using a multimeter. Is there a way??
