Usage

I/O

The Light Sensor has only 1 output. When placed, on the ground, the side facing the player is the output.

Logic

The Light Sensor senses the light level (0 - 15) that it is receiving and emits an equal redstone signal (0 - 15) through its output. The sensor has 3 modes. Each mode calculates light levels differently.

Sky light is the light coming from the sky, while block light is the artificial light emitted from blocks such as torches or lamps. The gate has different modes that can sense either or, or both.

Configuration

A shift-right-click with a screwdriver can change the mode of the gate. When placed, the Light sensor is on Hybrid mode. The first click will change it to Daylight mode (what the vanilla Minecraft Daylight Sensor uses). The next click will change it to Block light mode.
