Photo sensors don't work,
This review is from: The American Red Cross Blackout Buddy the emergency LED flashlight, blackout alert and nightlight, pack of 2, ARCBB200W-DBL (Tools & Home Improvement)
I chose this emergency light because I wanted one with a nightlight that also had a photo sensor to turn the nightlight on automatically when it's dark. These ones are supposed to do that if you switch it to 'auto' but none of the 4 I bought do that.....the light stays on no matter how much light there is in the room.

Is there a Dollarama near you? I found a nightlight with sensor there for a couple of bucks. If you don't need the flashlight feature this will suit you just fine. I plugged it in near the bottom of the stairs so if I had to get downstairs in the middle of the night I didn't have to turn the big light on or walk in the dark. The one I got from Dollarama is a big square but flat so it doesn't stick out much. It comes on when it's dark and it gives out decent lighting. For a couple of bucks I am really getting my money worth.

I agree with this review. The auto function with photo sensor is not light sensitive enough.
Therefore, the night light stays on even when you turn a light on. Only when you unplug the light and hold it close to illumination does it shut-off. Too bad.
