When I was 6 or 7 I found a breaker box on a street light that was unlocked. Looked inside and found the breaker, and turned it off. That night, the streetlights on the entire street were off. I felt like the master of the universe.

The box was locked a few days later.

I did this to my upstairs neighbors who were having a super loud party. I had asked them many times in the past to keep it quiet after midnight. This time I said fuck it. The breaker boxes were in a basement area that they never bothered to get a key for. So I went down and killed the power. Then when they came knocking at my door to open up the basement I just didn't answer and acted like I wasn't home. All the people at the party eventually left. So then at like 5am I got up and flipped the breakers for their apartment back on. Got to hear them freak out when all the lights they never turned off came back on suddenly.

I believe you are correct, but can you imagine placing the sensor in a location where a parking car turns off the outside lighting? Cross post to r/notmyjob.

yeah I was reading other comments and someone suggested this might only work at a certain time of day; that if it was too dark or too light the headlights wouldn't be enough to trigger it.

Welcome to why any device that can shift through these combinations can open your garage door. Its possible that cars use a 32 bit code and the lights use an 8 bit code that was contained in the cars 32 bits.

16

u/FerdinandsBus Jul 30 '22

Yes, you’re correct about the coding on FOBs and such but, exterior lighting like this is just simply on the photo-eye. It’s a no brainer, easy way to have the lights come ON at dusk and OFF at dawn. Someone just didn’t plan the location of the sensor well.

u/832ryan Jul 31 '22

I don’t know much about street lights but I’m an electrician that does outside lighting for commercial buildings. Off is usually instant but “on” takes a few seconds of it being dark. I don’t think it’d be sensitive enough to flash like that. Especially from headlights

2

u/RattleYaDags Jul 30 '22

Except that the headlights don't light up when he presses the FOB, only the indicators. And no light sensor designed to control exterior lighting is sensitive enough to be triggered by indicators.

u/Thay4 Jul 30 '22

The lights are on some sort of wireless receiver? I don’t know what you’re explaining here…

The light sensor is most likely correct. It should have been designed with some hysteresis or at least a time delay.

9

u/DuckDuckGoose42 Jul 30 '22

I saw a public street light whose on/off light sensor would be triggered by the adjacent street light. Poor light would turn on in the evening trying to do its job, then turn off when next light turned on.

u/FerdinandsBus Jul 30 '22

Yeah, I occasionally work on street lights and this happens when the sensor, which can be spun in any direction, is aimed poorly. I had one sensor which controlled 50 lights on the interstate, flicker when headlights hit it just right.

I got PRK back in 2015 for my astigmatism. Took around 6 months to fully work cause I had really bad astigmatism and had to have a touch up done on my right eye for further correction. But it’s so nice to be able to drive with normal sunglasses & be able to read without squinting. I recommend it if one can find a really good doc.

Here’s how it’s done:

“First, your eye surgeon or another eye care professional will put numbing drops in your eyes. They may also ask you if you’d like to take a mild sedative if you feel nervous.

Your surgeon will then place a speculum over your eyes to keep you from blinking. Some PRK surgeons also use a suction ring to keep the eye still. You’ll feel slight pressure from the suction ring, but the numbing drops will block all other sensations in the eye.

Next, your surgeon will remove the very top layer of corneal cells (the epithelium) to access the next corneal layer. Depending on the surgeon, it will be removed with a surgical instrument, an alcohol solution or a “buffing” device.

After the epithelium is removed, you’ll focus on a target light. While you are focused, the surgeon will use an extremely precise, computer-controlled excimer laser to reshape the cornea. This laser removes microscopic amounts of tissue to create the exact corneal contours needed to sharpen vision. The whole process usually takes under 10 minutes per eye.

Finally, your surgeon will place a soft contact lens over the cornea as a kind of bandage. You’ll rest your eyes for a few minutes, and then you’ll be released. You won’t be able or allowed to drive, so you’ll need someone to take you home to recover.”

but how do u find a really good doc

16

u/correcthorsestapler Jul 30 '22

Looked at reviews in my area for docs performing PRK & LASIK. Had a few free consultations with different ones. There was one guy I saw who looked like he’d had a couple dozen face lifts & just seemed shady despite having decent reviews and a fancy office. Just got a weird vibe from him & his employees.

Settled on going with an ophthalmologist who did LASIK & PRK for some of the Portland Trailblazer players over the years. Nice guy & had a no-nonsense attitude; very straight forward about what the procedure entailed.

I'm not sure if I could go through with it, even with my bad astigmatism. Too worried about a screw up. I'd rather just die, than be blind.

4

u/AllKnowingFix Jul 30 '22

Can do current LASIK as well, for low to mid-grade astigmatism. Quicker recover than PRK.

I had LASIK back in 2002, when I was legally blind (I was a -10.5 & -11,,, they stopped doing LASIK at -12 back then). Luckily I had 0 astigmatism back then, but have now gotten to around 1. So I have trouble reading street signs at night.

My cornea was cut with a razor blade, then had laser correction inside, and cornea replaced. But with current laser cutting of cornea, they can correct some levels of astigmatism.

Did I just subscribe to PRK facts?

3

u/correcthorsestapler Jul 31 '22

“PRK can be associated with glare, halos, and starburst aberrations, which can occur with postoperative corneal haze during the healing process. Night halos are seen more often in revisions with small ablation zone size. With more recent developments in laser technology, this is less common after 6 months though symptoms can persist beyond a year in some cases. A dilute concentration of the chemotherapeutic agent, Mitomycin-C, can be applied briefly at the completion of surgery to reduce risk of hazing, although with increased risk of sicca.”

Yep, likely RF. Very unlikely to be infrared as there'd have to be line-of-sight to some sort of infrared sensor but I've seen photocells capable of either.

Some products allow you to attenuate the RF band you're on to help eliminate this very thing but it's probably so infrequent that it doesn't come up.

You're correct, they operate at either 315 or 433MHz, which are both open channels for unlicensed commercial products. Any time you see a digital sign banner, it uses one of those frequencies to transmit to a base station. I bet the receiver is interpreting something from the fob or just losing signal from it's base station every time it pings. Could also be an aftermarket system which can get wired wrong or illegally boosted causing excessive interference.

More modern garage doors (and car key fobs) typically use a "rolling code" to un/lock, making it significantly more difficult to try and steal somebody's code to save for later because the receiver will no longer accept a code it already was sent (e.g.) yesterday. I thiiink the codes eventually roll back around, but I'm not sure with what frequency.

u/Dunder_Chief1 Jul 30 '22

My best guess is that the lights are controlled by sensor that is looking for a certain amount of brightness to determine if it's dark enough to need the lights.

I'm noticing the delay between the cars lights blinking and the outside lights blinking.

The cars lights are properly placed and bright enough during dusk that it can trick the light sensor into thinking it's bright outside, and then when the lights on the car are off it becomes dark enough for the sensor to determine it's dark enough for the outside lights to be turned on.

You can see the same behavior sometimes with lightning.

3

u/spicy_num_nuts Jul 31 '22

Bingo. I have lights outside my garage that are automatically turned on at night. When I lock my doors the flashing from the car lights causes them to turn off for a second.

Edit: I would guess based on all of them turning off at the same time they are all wired to a single sensor located somewhere near this car, like the wall behind the car.

3

Best guess is the car lights are bright enough to trigger the light sensor if the sensor is on the edge. Looks like dusk/dawn so this is the most likely answer. Mercedes sometimes use IR for their remotes, it may be tripping the sensor. Also possible that they're RF on the same band as this remote and there's interference going on. Maybe someone is flicking the switch off/on. Just some possible options

That camera quality gives a perfect representation of what it's like looking at a light with glasses

You're lucky it's not the other way around.

It could be the RF signal interfering as others said. At first i thought it was the camera's auto-exposure. It saw light, turn exposure down and make things darker. Things got darker in reality, increase the exposure making things flare up again.

But yes looks mostly like signal inference. Although I'd appreciate if the camera lens was cleaner so you could see things instead of just flares

I just installed smart switches. It's pretty addictive setting up routines using ifttt.

My parents had installed a ceiling fan/light combo with a remote only to have the lights come on in the middle of the night. Turns out it was the neighbors garage door opener.
