With LightDetector you can create very simple light detectors which you can use in your redstone circuits!

This plugin is a rewrite of Rahazan's LightSensor. He couldn't update his plugin any more so I offered to take over the plugin :)


LightDetector uses the same setup as Rahazan's LightDetector. Lever as the switch with a glass block on top, as seen in this picture.

A picture showing the setup for a detector.

Check out the forums! You can find many more designs there.


  • Very simple detector setup - See pictures above.
  • Efficient - Only detectors in loaded chunks are activated.
  • Configurable - See the configuration settings.


  • None!


  • lightlevel: [0-15] - The light level needed to turn the power on.
  • skylightonly: [true/false] - Only detect light form the sun or all light (only in version 1.2 and later)
  • lightcheckinterval: [ticks] - The interval in which the detectors check if the light level changed. (20 ticks = 1 second)
  • invert: [true/false] - Inverts the detector meaning it will switch on when below set light level

To do list:

Let me know! :) I would like to keep this plugin simple though.
