The motion light says it has a manual override. I thought this was to be able to turn the light on so it wont shut off until I turn it off. Is this what the manual override means?


Good afternoon Amanda

There is a 'Dusk to Dawn' mode in these lights in which it will turn on continuously for 6 hours once it senses dusk, and then go back to the automated sensing mode for the rest of the night. This is triggered by turning power on and off twice within three seconds. See the manual here (

If you follow this link, there is a forum with the same question and a walk-through of how to toggle the switch for manual mode.

Brinks motion activated security light model 7160w. Only stays on for about 15 seconds. Setting is on 10 minutes. Can someone help?


Sounds like the motion sensor is not picking up motion. Or, does it actually sense motion and only stay on for a short time each time? Try moving the setting, if this is the case and see if you see ANY change. If not, then replace the motion sensor.

Last night I installed the Utilitech Pro 180 degree Motion activated light. I have the motion sensor sensitivity set as high as it will go but it still doesn't pick up activity beyond 10 feet in front of...


The 48-hour period allows the light to "learn" the operating parameters. The 10-foot range limitation may be due to other environmental factors (such as adjacent bright lights) that affect sensitivity.

Sounds like the batteries are not getting charged. Check to see if there was some packing material in place to keep the batteries disconnected for shipping.

I would like to rewire a solar security light (motion activated) to stay on at dark. Brand westinghouse


The light will only stay on as long as the battery lasts. My guess is that will not last all night. What you can do is buy a light sensor switch (or even a light sensor socket adaptor is available to save you from having to wire it in) to keep a light on during the night. You can use a CFL or even an LED lamp to save electricity, but it is unlikely that a solar-charged cell will power even one of thes all night long.

Motions don't stay active when doors and windows are on too.


The system is working as designed. If you arm both doors/windows and motions, but you DON'T exit the premises during the exit delay, the system will "downgrade" its arming to doors/windows only. The assumption is that you haven't actually left the premises and are at risk of creating fale alarms. This behavior can be disabled in System Configuration (though it may require the dealer access code to do it).

Try opening and closing a sensored external door (even if you don't go outside) during the delay after arming doors+motion and see if the motions don't stay active.

It sounds like the auto-stay arming function. Try arming it and opening and closing the door.
