Laser receiver for outside application

Hi,

in my project I am using a laser module and receiver of this kind:

The receiver module gets already triggered my bright daylight. Is there a special trick that enables the receiver being used outside, so that it only reacts on the laser transmitter?

If not could someone indicate a module that is less sensitive to daylight?

Best regards, Tim

Place your receiver at one end of a long narrow tube, for example a 2m long piece of 20mm drain pipe. Make sure the tube is angled away from the sun.

Pick a laser wavelength and see if it is included in sunlight.

Sunlight contains light covering pretty much all frequencies of lasers available on hoppy sites. I looked to see what the wavelength of the laser was on the site indicated but it was not listed on the site. If you know what the wavelength you can go to ebay and buy some band pass optical filters centered at the frequency of the laser and cover the aperture of the the receiver with the filter.
