Your motion detector is based on infrared or heat sensing technology. Moving air or wind will make your unit more sensitive to false alarming. Here are a few things for you to check: 1) make sure your unit is sealed. Any holes or openings in the unit's casing will affect operation. 2) you may need to readjust the unit's sensitivity. There may be an adjustment pod or jumper inside the detector to reduce sensitivity. 3) make sure the unit is mounted securely. If the wind causes the detector to move, even slightly, this could be the cause of your problem.

Some of these fixtures have a function built in that turns the light on solid if the power is cycled rapidly several times. If you have had power glitches and this unit has that function, it might be locked on.

Pull the circuit breaker for the light for a couple minutes then try re-powering it to reset the function.

My journeyman motion light just quit working for no reason. The bubls are good. As mention it was working fine then just stop working. What could be the problem?


The motion sensor unit shorted to due to rainwater infiltration, if its like the last half-dozen motion sensor units I opened up. Take the unit down, open up the sensor unit head, and if its got moisture inside, you know why it quit. If not moisture, then they sometimes do what all electronic devices eventually do, they fail due to 1 of the components reaching its failure - every sensor has an MTBF
(mean time between failure).

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.

The light goes on at 3pm when I go into the sensor's path. I want it to go on at 8pm


This is listed under motion sensor. If so, there is no problem. If it's really a timer then:
Times have 3 components: Clock, two trip switches (on and off).
Make sure the mark you are using to set the clock is the correct mark and that you have AM PM correct.

Make sure you have the trip switches ON and OFF identified and set correctly.

Most appliance timers are pretty much alike. You should be able to walk into any appliance store and look at the directions for one like yours.
