My neighbor is polluting my darkness with a dusk-to-dawn streetlight. What are the chances of deceiving the photocell on top of the light unit by pointing a laser at it? (I have a line of sight to the photocell from my roof terrace)
And what type of laser would be best?

It will work, it will be hard to aim though... I would try it with a cheap drugstore laser pointer first, distance will determine the power you need.
