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.

Inspired by the urban city-scape, but with a touch of green, the 'Urban' cuckoo clock is an innovative modern table or wall cuckoo clock designed bt Italian designer 'Patrizia Dalla Pace' for Progetti.
Her hope was to evoke the feeling of nature even in the city, creating a true representation of sustainable architecture. The green, which symbolically protrudes from the window sills, is realised with stabilised moss. It can be hung on the wall but also put on the office table or among the shelves of the home bookcase.
Crafted from recyclable materials that respect the environment, it is finished with non-toxic paints and comes in three different colours - Black, White or Yellow (Mustard).
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.
