Lights flash on and off


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.

Lights flash on/off non-stop, until reset, then does it again. model SL-5408 GR-B


Have you reset the controls on the sensor itself. Suggest you reinstate factory settings and start over.
Hope this helps.

Switch the Dual Timer selector to OFF.
Wait 1.5 minutes for fixture to recalibrate.
Then check fixture again.

Cannot get light to go on and then off at programmed time. Stays on. At cottage with no neighbours or ambient light. Installed professionally, not by myself. Frustrated many efforts before contacting...


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.

I replaced the batteries in the motion sensor and now it appears that I need to learn how to adjust the timing. Is there a manual for the 270 (I think this is the one from the picture)?

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.
