Update 0.13.0

Daylight Sensors are Redstone-related Blocks that were added in Update 0.13.0, and produce a Redstone signal based on the amount of sunlight it receives.



Daylight Sensors are mainly used to produce Redstone signals in proportion to the amount of sunlight and moonlight. They can be inverted by tapping on it.


There are two types of Daylight Sensors, the regular and the inverted sensor.

The Regular Daylight Sensors activate when exposed to a sufficient amount of sunlight, or when the sky light level drops to 0.

The Inverted Daylight Sensors activate only when the sunlight is low or nonexistent. The strength of the signal depends on time of night.


  • Daylight Sensors cannot be activated through artificial light sources (like Torches).
  • When underwater, Daylight Sensors create Airlocks.
  • Since the signal is directly proportional to the sunlight (or inversely in 'Inverse Mode'), if an opaque block is placed above it, it will not function.
  • Daylight Sensors have a thickness of 38 of a block.
