ambient light sensor

does anybody knows what sensor is used for the ambient light sensor?
I’m talking about Ring Stick Up Cam and the ambient light sensor which is above the camera, it has a little hole and a translucent plastic to guide the light inside.
I wanted to trick the camera to make it think is always day time (never night) and I removed the sensor.
and now, it doesn’t work properly.
I would like to buy a sensor and see if I can make the camera work.
Thank you.
