SOURCE: dusk to dawn light flickers on and off

I answer questions for free here at fixya.
I know timers and electrical devices.
If the following information does not help, add a comment and I will work on the problem further.

You posted under the Intermatic ST01C timer.
I assume this is not a new installation, so we know the wiring is correct, and your programming worked correctly in the past.
You have the timer set up for dusk to dawn.

The manual has troubleshoot section.

I have read the manual and tested&wired the timer and programmed the timer.

A low battery can cause this kind of problem, even if BATT is not flashing on screen.
The manual also says when encountering a problem, you can reset and then reprogram the timer.
The manuals says to check for loose wires, and defective bulb.
The timer does not work on circuits longer than 100'
The timer does not work if there are underground wires.

The symptoms you describe sound like loose wires or a light bulb.
I would check the wire nuts at the timer and at the outdoor fixture.
Change the outdoor bulbs.
As last resort, reprogram the timer.
These electronic devices go bad, and the ST01C has a 1 year warranty >>> combine the short warranty with the long troubleshooting section, I believe the product fails frequently.

Lumark makes a 70 watt HPS sold at Lowes

If this is your product:
Add a comment and tell me what color wires are on the back of the HPS, and what color wires you have, and what type of fixture you are replacing.
I will probably be able to help.

SOURCE: How to set utilitech wall timer for dusk/dawn

The Utilitec 0192773 timer has astro dusk-to-dawn functions.

The manual is very unclear at the exact point you need it to say how to set dusk-to-dawn.

The following page has the manual, with explanation how to find the astro dawn-to-dusk setting

When you are programming the timer, press TIME button and hours start flashing.
Press the +/- button ... the trick is to keep pushing the +/- button until it finally gets to astro, and the sun-moon symbol shows on display.
When the sun-moon symbol shows, the display also shows AM.
Press the +/- again and PM show.

So if you want Program1 to turn lights ON at dusk (PM), then your display needs to show: 1 ON PM sun-moon.
To continue setting astro, do not set hours, just press PROG button.
Then repeat the steps above until: 1 OFF AM sun-moon show on display.

SOURCE: Will the HB51R have to

The dawn to dusk feature is activated by photoelectric eye that senses when it gets dark.
If you put timer in a dark room, it will turn ON ... let's say to operate Christmas tree after you leave a room for the evening.
But if room stays dark, the timer will not sense when to turn off unless you also set timer to turn off 1-9 hours after ON.
That being said, a Christmas tree might make too much light for the timer's photoelectric eye.
Make sure photoelectric eye is turned away from direct light.

    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 (
    Defiant MST18920lwdf Use And Care Manual Feature Selection Troubleshooting )

    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.

    That should get you off to the races. Good Luck!

    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.

    I want to replace my existing single bulb porch light with a 2 bulb motion activated light. It would be operated with the existing switch. Is this ok to do?

    Yes. Must keep switch turned ON.
    Outdoor lights will only come on when motion is detected, otherwise light bulb does not come on. So the indoor wall switch does not work as override since the motion sensor takes over as the sole switch.
    Copy following link for wiring illustrations:
    Other solutions include adding separate motion sensor light nearby and keep porch light so you can turn on-off when desired.
    Another option is to add photocell to outdoor light so it turns on automatically at dusk.
    Another option is to use outdoor yard timer with dawn-dusk capability:
    Another option is to replace indoor wall switch with with dawn-dusk timer, that can also be used as ordinary on-off switch so you can turn porch light on-off when desired. Timer such as Intermatic ST01C offers simple 2-wire connection.:

    Where can I get additional push pins?? Also disappointed that the Intermatic timer 1101 stopped working 13 months after it was purchased. Just 1 month over warranty. Should last longer than the 4 months...

    Yeah, I have seen tons of these units fail early. Usually someone stripped the gears.
    Another approach, in terms of lighting control, is use dusk to dawn or timed motion sensors. They are always "on time" where the clock needs to be changed many times over the course of season changes, etc. They do not need to be reset after power failure or daylight savings, they just always work/
    In a commercial building, interior lights should be on 24/7 OR motion sensors, and external lights Dusk to dawn.
    In residential, motion with duration timer systems seem to work the best. Replace the Intermatic. Even the digital Intermatic requires user intervention all the time.

    I bought two motion sensing diecast lanterns model HB-4190 series, SKU 248-593 and the instructions are hard to understand. To make it easy tell me how to set the device if I want it to come on only if...

    Hello Gerald. Each switch has a function. the the test-1-5-10 allows you to set it to test or an on period of 1 or 5 or 10 minutes. The off-3-6-dusk to dawn allows you to turn it off completely, operate from dusk for 3 hours, operate from dusk for 6 hours or operate from dusk to dawn. By operate I mean turn on and then stay on for the number of minutes you set it to with the other switch.

    what's nice about the test setting is that with it allows you to check and b sure that the light will come on during daylight by setting the one switch to test and the otner to any setting but off.

    If you leave the 2nd switch set to off the first switch will not allow you to test it.

    That sounds like the Woods 17321 Dusk-to-Dawn yard stake

    If this is not your timer, check following page:

    Rotate dial to set options:
    Rotate to OFF > outlets OFF
    Rotate to ON > outlets ON

    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.
