My motion sensor stopped working--the lights are full on all day.

One flood light burned out and since, the lights are on full day and night. I had it set for a 1 minute on and dusk to dawn setting. How do I fix it?

    I wrote in about ny motion sesor lights that stay on. The name is Heath/Zenith DualBrite Motion Sensor Light Control with 2-level Lighting. It is about a year old. One bulb burned out and the other bulb came on bright. I replaced the old bulb,but the lights stay on bright. The sensor blinks red when I move in front of it, but the lights stay on day and night. I have tripped the circuit switch and turned the light off for days, but it still doesn't operate right. Changing the settings doesn't help. Is there any hope?

    Is it connected to a switch. If so try turning the switch off for a few seconds and back on. If it is not connected to a switch you may have to disconnect the power or turn breaker off for a few seconds and then back on. some units have a sensitivity setting.

Good Morning -
Make sure the bulb is point in the right direction and don't use an incadescent? bulb like a 60 watt bulb.
make sure you use floodlightor spot light bulbs so theydon't shine on the sensor.
Have a Great Day!!

Why does my motion sensor light go on during the day? it is supposed to only turn on at night

Most likely the light sensor has stopped working. The light sensor creates voltage from light, like a small solar cell. If it quits producing voltage, the light system thinks it is dark.

I have motion sensor flood lights that are not turning on. I put it on test & it does turn on. But when switched over to 1, 5 or ten minutes it won't turn on. The red light on the sensor does turn

April, you didn't mention whether you did the test at night. In addition to motion sensing, the flood light also detects darkness before allowing the bulbs to light up. If it is night, check also that some other light source is not illuminating the sensor. If so, that could fool the sensor into thinking it is daytime.

Flood lights in back yard not working

Which kind of flood lights? Long time lighting during whole night or security lighting sensitive to people walking across.

If it is for long time lighting, you should select the fixture lighting source as compact fluorescent, led or small wattage HID lamps, this kind of fixture you do not have priority requirement for instant on, the following fixture is just for reference.

For security purpose, you need the flood light right away reach full brightness, normally you take following fixture with halogen bulbs.

Good luck!

Motion sensor light not tripping off

If new, then it could be faulty. If old, then may have water damage.

1. Light switch is turned off.
2. Flood lamp is loose or burned out.
3. Fuse is blown or circuit breaker is turned off.
4. Daylight turn-off is in effect.
5. Incorrect circuit wiring, if this is a new installation.
6. Light control aimed in wrong direction.

1. Turn light switch on.
2. Check flood lamp and replace if burned out.
3. Replace fuse or turn circuit breaker on.
4. Recheck after dark.
5. Verify wiring is correct.
6. Re-aim light control to cover desired area.

Sounds like the relay in motion sensor. Change the bulb. Rechargeable batteries are no good after 3-4 years also.

Flood lights take a very long time to come on

Insure you are using a standard flood light on motion sensor lights and not a florescent energy efficient flood light as they take longer to reach full brightness as the bulb filiment warms up. They are better suited for constant lighting rather than intermittent purposes such as sensor lights.

Good Luck
