Yes 
Use the day light switch WDL10 to operate a contactor or 600RM

Please note the large LED flood lamps have a very large inrush current and can weld contacts
Schneider electric have some high preformace contactors that switch the load at Zero crossing of the wave form to help with arcing of contacts
