Most cuckoo clocks (either mechanical or battery powered) come with 'nighttime shutoff' in either a manual or 'light sensor' variety. This just means that both varieties enable you to control when the clock makes sounds.
Mechanical cuckoo clocks have a manual 'nighttime shutoff' which are usually a lever with 2 positions - sound on or sound off.
Battery powered cuckoo clocks usually come with an automatic 'nighttime shutoff' otherwise known as a light sensor which detects light levels and disables sound when the lights are off or it is very dark. While some include volume levels as well as sound on/off positions, some models also include an option to stop the sound between the hours of 9:00pm and 8:00am.

This playful and ironic modern cuckoo clock is called 'Bird Watching' and is designed by 'Studio Kuadra' (see below). It leads us to observe a cuckoo in it's natural environment in the woods, while at it's side in the watch tower, stand the silhouettes of two birdwatchers ready to photograph the little bird.
Intended as a table cuckoo clock that decorates desks, shelves and furniture, at home or the office. Both the tree and the watch tower can be freely positioned, tethered only by the cord that joins the mechanisms of the cuckoo to the clock. While the watch tower is made of black lacquered wood, the tree, with a little bird hidden among the foliage, is entirely covered in MOSS by Verde Profilo, a treated natural lichen that can be used indoors in rooms lacking natural light, without undergoing changes.
This cuckoo clock's quartz movement is battery powered and the cuckoo strike, which chimes on the hour with the sound of a light babbling brook and sweet cuckoo call, can be volume controlled and is also switched off automatically during the night by a built-in light sensor.
All Progetti cuckoo clocks are fitted with an Engstler™ clock & cuckoo mechanism which is custom built by the Engstler cuckoo clock manufacturer in the Black Forest region, Germany. Their craftsmanship ensures your cuckoo clock works as wonderfully as the world-famous traditional cuckoo clocks of the Black Forest region.
All Progetti cuckoo clocks are tested for a 24-hour period prior to their shipment to ensure the highest level of quality.
