I want my motion securtiy light to acturally stay on all night. more after animals than people, can this be done?


Usually with mains power motion lights if you switch them on and off two or three times and then back to on, the light will stay on all the time. To put it back to motion, switch off, wait a minute and then switch to on.

This is borne out by this article


Search Results Most motion detectors have a built-in override:
  1. Normally the switch is kept on all the time. ...
  2. If you turn the switch off and on within a second or so, the light will stay on, and this overrides motion detection.
  3. To go back to normal operation, turn the switch off and wait ~10 seconds, then turn back on.

I have a motion detection plug in security light, is it possibel to get it to stay on all the time?


if then light is on all the time what is the point of having a motion detector unit as it is designed to switch on a light when motion is detected
the light switch on when there is no motion but as soon as detected the light comes on primarily to light the way for you or to scare off intruders
having the light on all of the time is a waste of energy

As per request. re: reset/fix indoor motion detector.


on all the Honeywell or Ademco wireless motion detectors I have worked on the light will not come on with the cover in place, it is set that way to conserve battery life. If you want to be sure it is working properly arm your system and wait at least 4 minutes before walking in front of he motion then walk in front of it and see if it trips the alarm.

I have this light for 2 years with no problems at all. recently, it seems that the "left side" of the sensor stopped working. (If I walk right in front or in the right side, the lights will come...


  1. Locate the sensor on the motion detector. The most common problem with a motion detector is a sensor that is obstructed or dirty. Remove any dirt, grime or anything else that may be blocking the view of the sensor. If you need to actually touch the sensor itself to clean it, use a soft cloth or cotton swabs.
  2. Determine if the motion detector has electricity running through it properly. Connect an electrical meter to the wires from the sensor itself. If electricity is indeed running to the sensor, you likely have a broken senor. If there is no electricity making it to the sensor, your motion detector has an electrical short. In the case of an electrical short, you will need the help of a professional electrician to fix it.
  3. Visit a hardware or supply store to buy a replacement sensor

Thanks for understanding.

The red wire from motion detector connects to both of the black wires from the lights. The black wire from the motion detector connects to the incoming black wire from the switch or source. The white wire from the motion detector connects to both of the white wires from the lights and to the incoming white wire from the switch or source (all white wires are under one wirenut).

Sorry, but you need one extra wire between the switches to wire "the opposite configuration" that you want :-(
That means going into the attic and pulling another cable :-( I can walk you through it if you are willing to do all that work.
The only other solution would be to purchase the commercial version of that motion switch, which would also require a sensor at _each_ switch location :-(

My motion detector switch stays on, lights won't turn off. How do I reset the switch?


Hi MBE,

Most motion detectors have sensitivity and duration adjustments. Others have test modes.

Since the model is not specified, I can't tell you where to look.

You will know it when you see it though.

Best regards
Mike
