Very common issue with motion sensing lights. You can either replace the light sensor which is available at most hardware stores or you can disable the motion sensing feature and just have an on-off light. To disable the sensor, (turn off the power!) unscrew and remove the light sensor (it is the reposition-able box under the light.) It depends on the particular light, but you usually just match up the wire coming into the light from the house and the wire from the bulbs and connect them with a wire-nut.
i have a question about heath zenith motion sensor light.
i put up two new Heath Zenith Motion Sensor Light Control the i buy from home depot tie into switch leg. When i put in on test it work fine stay on for a few second them off, but when i set up on automatic Time-1min.\ Dual Brite-off \ Lamp Mode-Normal light go off and them come back on for the rest of the nigh long and go off morning time. Any body have this problem?
Light stays on all the time: Turn power to light off. Wait 10 seconds. Turn power back on.
Typical option on motion lights: Quick power flick -- light stays on. Slow power flick -- light goes into motion sensing mode.
Hopefully the professional installer gave you a switch.
there is a slide switch on the bottom of the sensor......test....1 min.....5min...
u may have to reset the sensor....turn power off .....then remove batteries.....wait 5 min....then turn on power....then replace batteries ......do not move the sensor and wait 1.5 minutes...
U can also call heath zenith @ 800 858-8501 and talk to tech support....
Your motion detector is based on infrared or heat sensing technology. Moving air or wind will make your unit more sensitive to false alarming. Here are a few things for you to check: 1) make sure your unit is sealed. Any holes or openings in the unit's casing will affect operation. 2) you may need to readjust the unit's sensitivity. There may be an adjustment pod or jumper inside the detector to reduce sensitivity. 3) make sure the unit is mounted securely. If the wind causes the detector to move, even slightly, this could be the cause of your problem.
