Most cuckoo clocks (either mechanical or battery powered) come with 'night-time 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 'night-time shutoff' which are usually a lever with 2 positions - sound on or sound off.
Battery powered cuckoo clocks usually come with an automatic 'night-time 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 beautiful chalet 8-day movement traditional musical cuckoo clock is crafted by renowned Black Forest cuckoo clock manufacturer 'Hönes'.
Made from wood sourced locally from the Black Forest, Germany, this traditional musical chalet cuckoo clock is beautifully hand-crafted, with it's roof made of individually hand-crafted shingles and a facade decorated with various hand-painted elements such as small windows, hand-painted flower baskets, various hanging tools and a faux-stone foundation. It sets a beautiful scene where a moving hunter walks with his dog among the fir trees at the front of the house. A bear and moose stand amidst the trees. Nearby, a wood choppers tools stand next to a full wood-pile. Above them is a balcony where a carousel of small hand-painted figurines rotate and twirl along with the melody - either "Edelweiss" and "Happy wanderer".
Lightly stained in a walnut finish, this 8-day movement musical chalet cuckoo clock is perfect for adding some rustic charm to any living room, hallway or study.
This clock features a charming little cuckoo bird which animates from behind it's little door and sings in the hour (a succession of cuckoo calls to correspond to the hour in the day). The sound can be turned off manually at night with a 'sound-off' lever.
The cuckoo clock plays it's melodies through a mechanical Swiss-made music box that alternates between the songs "Edelweiss" and "Happy wanderer". The sound can be switched off at night with a manual lever.
This cuckoo clock has 8-day movement meaning approximately every eight days the clock needs to be manually wound. The act of winding the cuckoo clock is very easy and only requires someone to gently pull on the chains so that the weights are drawn back to their utmost position. Gravity does the rest and ensures the clock can be kept perfectly on time as the weight lowers and slowly pulls the chain back through the clock-work mechanism.
This cuckoo clock by Hönes is guaranteed with the 'Black Forest Clock Association's Certificate of Authenticity' to verify that the clock was made in the Black Forest Region, Germany and that all of it's parts, including it's internal clock mechanism, have been made with the highest of standard of manufacture.
