thing with interior lighting solutions for plants growth is that they usually employ some form of warp around reflector/diffuser, whose application in an exterior locations would likely impair or defeat daytime growth.

As for turning on/off outdoor lights, it's done using some form of optical sensor, like photo-resistors, to engage or disengage a relay

Plants like humans do need cycles and seasons, let them sleep.

Where do you live?  Do you not get much sun in the daytime?

What kind of plant are you trying to grow?

Believe it or not some plants need nighttime low light to grow best.
