LED light installed but does not stay on full powered while using dusk to dawn. how to keep LED Par38 on full power all the time

The darker it gets, the brighter the lamp gets. If it's not getting bright enough at sunset or dawn, simply reduce the amount of light getting to the sensor.

Take a piece of black electrical tape, cut a hole in it, maybe 3/4 the size of the sensor opening, and place it over the opening. If that's too much effect, remove the tape, make the hole a little better, and re-apply it. If it's not enough, use a new piece of tape with a smaller hole.

My neighbor did this, over 30 years ago, after telling his kids they could play outdoors until the yard lamp came on.

My motion outdoor light is not turning off.

there can a few reasons for this happening

(1) something is moving within its range , this can be a bush or tree branch
(2) range /sensativity set too high use proper adjustments

(3) some models have a constant on mode that happens when you cycle power too light, turn pwr off and leave off for 15 min then turn back on
(4) lighting , the flashes of intense light drive these things crazy , if a strike comes close , sensor will become perm blinded and stay on
(5) light is defective

Lithonia photocell light stays on during the day

1) Buy twist-lock photo control:

2) Spray bit of WD40 on twist-lock blades before installing new photo eye, and then rotate back and forth a bit to make sure there is electrical contact.
Test by placing black tape over photo eye.

Heat/ac pump

- If it is a high wall unit yep under charge refrigerant is one of the cause.
- Out of range thermistor is also can also be the cause of tripping outdoor unit with matching blinking light same as low refrigerant.
- Dirty indoor and outdoor can also be the cause
- If your indoor and outdoor is clean start the unit in cool mode and monitor the outdoor pipes. If your suction pipe is icing or dry then your unit is under charge, but if your suction is cold and sweating then the system is ok and sure that the thermistor sensor is defective.
