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

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.

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 have motion lightts on my back porch. I would like to just plain turn them on when I have a back yard party, but I don't know how to over ride the motion sensor. Can you help? Thanks.


On most motion sensor lights if you turn the switch on, then off and on quickly, they will stay on till you turn them back off. Leave it off for at least 10 seconds and turn it back on to go back to the motion sensor.

Dual Brite sensor lighting. Lights will not stay on even after human motion is in place sight of sensor during evening hours. I have the switches on dusk to dawn and the on-time switch is set to 20...


I really don't understand why these lights are so failure prone and I usually return at least 8 out of 10 back to the store but I've installed a lot of them. If its Zenith brand the light may need to be reset by turning the power off at the switch or breaker for 1-2 min then back on. Then check the motion sensitivity dial if its maxed out turn it back and set it to 75% full also the photo eye may be getting light from the light making it think its daytime at night so try to reaim the photo eye if possible away from the light source that should fix most problems or 20% of them but if you still have problems return it to the store or ask for their advise. Hope this helps I've seen a lot of junk motion lights in my time they are troublesome at times.

Motion sensor light stay on


Hi, You don't say what the make or model is, so I will give you the best advice I can. Most motion sensor lights today have a switch or two on them for "on", "test" and then some time like 3 minutes, or 5 minutes. The switch is tiny so it or they are easy to overlook. The "on" position will keep the light on all of the time. The test position does different things on different models but you will want one of the time settings. If this doesn't work for you get back to me with a little more info and we'll keep on it. Good Luck!

Motion Light doesn't work on switch


Try turning the switch on and off and back on again this usually will bypass the motion detector. when you are finished you can turn the switch off for a few seconds and back on and it will resume its normal function
