Motion Activated Exterior lights

Does a motion activated exterior light go on in daylight? Thanks

All motion lights I have seen also have a photo eye to prevent them from coming on during daylight. It's one feature that seems to reliably work.

They are called dusk to dawn motion activated. Through the switch the features can overridden.

No, they should also sense the darkness to active it.
And with motion! If you want the light stay on all night then you want a dusk to dawn only, not motion control.
