you could try using a phone or something external.... just saying I know the quality won't be as good but the design sounds simple enough to not need a lot of quality in the pic... I'm also anxious because I tried with the "description/explanation" you gave in the first post and I can't seem to get it working the chicken seems to stay under the torch day and night...
So please, please, gives us some pics!

Let’s say you have a castle and you want the gates to close automatically at night to keep the monsters out. A day night detector makes this possible.

I tried it underground to start with, by digging a 3 deep hole of 2 in length, then covered over one side with a dirt/grass block to create the 2 high space inside, of which I put the torch on that side, then a pressure plate on the open side with a glass block over that (after putting the chicken in). This only caused the chicken to walk back and forward a lot constantly triggering the pressure plate, so I tried various above ground methods in terms of making a box with your same inside specifications said in the first post, but this still didn't seem to stop the chicken from going back and forth :/ also tried making one where it was just 1 block of height inside with the same layout, but the chicken didn't seem to move much at all and instead stood in the middle of both spaces, not activating the pressure plate at all D: damn chickens don't like me or something hahaha!

Just diagram it like I did.
By the diagram I drew (based on your description), the actual machine does not work.
So providing a correct, functioning diagram would be useful, otherwise, this myth is busted.
