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.

Meet 'Burano', a stylish modern cuckoo clock designed by Eloisa Libera (see below) for Italian clock manufacturer Progetti. It's design and colours are in direct reference to the famous colourful houses of 'Burano Island' in Venice Lagoon.
Made of wood and with each house painted in a distinct colour, this cuckoo clock can be used either as a wall cuckoo clock or a table cuckoo clock. It'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.
