Open Studio: Exterior Lighting

Open Studio: Does anyone have a tutorial or workflow for setting up exterior lighting? I am struggling to get it to work.

Additionally, I would want them to be driven by a daylighting schedule. Any advice on how to do this?

The video at the top of this link should give a good overview of exterior lights as well as the rest of the facility tab. If you want lights to only turn on when it is dark outside then set "Control Option" to "Astronomical Clock" instead of "ScheduleNameOnly".
