Why Does My Dusk to Dawn Bulb Stay on When It’s Daylight?

The bulb has a light sensor built into the base of the bulb.  To trouble shoot the issue first check that the light sensor is able to receive enough light to activate the sensor.  Potential issues could include a fixture or lamp shade that blocks the light, usage in-doors in a room without direct sunlight, or the light sensor could be  faced toward a wall or inside a fixture without access to sunlight.
