SOURCE: Since the VEO motion detector is no longer

The motion detector is available new on Ebay right now from an electronics surplus dealer. Just type in 12v motion as your search and at least half a dozen come up. I bought one and it was new in the box with the instructions.

How to reset/fix an indoor motion detector?


Depends on the model of the detector, but wireless motions are not supposed to light up; if they light up they have been put into test mode, either by opening the tamper switch, removing and reinserting the battery, or by positioning an internal jumper to the test position. If the motion is a 5890(PI), remove the batteries and short the empty battery sockets for about 30 seconds to reset the low battery circuit, then reinsert the batteries and close the cover, making sure the tamper switch is properly closed. Other motions don't need this reset procedure, but do need all tamper switches closed. Ensure no one is moving near the motion and reset the keypad by entering your code plus Off (just like coming home). If everything is right and all other devices closed the ready light should come on.

Hi my question is motion spot light has has two black wires one from each light and two white from each light and one red from the motion detecter which is connected to the black wires there are two wires...


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).

I am trying wire a motion Senior its has 3 wires coming out the back red white black


To connect a separate motion detector to a light fixture (and assuming the fixture uses incandescent or the newer twisted florescent light bulbs), the RED wire from the detector is attached to the black ("hot") wire from the fixture; the WHITE wire from the detector is attached to the white wire from the power source; the BLACK wire from the detector is attached to the black ("hot") wire from the power source. Sometimes the white and black wires from the power source are mixed up, reversed. So it is best to check to determine which wire is actually "hot" (shows voltage in a meter between the wire and the ground wire or the metal box the power wires come from). In general, a colored wire (often black) in the power source, if wired properly according to accepted custom, will be "hot" and 120v in US. The white wire in the power source is called the "neutral" and should be neutral with the ground wire and/or the metal box. If there is another colored wire in the power source (often red) and if it is not taped with some black tape (to indicate it is really a black wire), then it too may be a 120v. hot wire, but it may also be an 120v. hot wire that is 120v opposite the other 120v wire. That is, one 120v wire is 120v+ and the other is 120v- The difference in voltage between these 120v wires + and - is, hence, 220v. If you see multiple colored wires, it is also a good idea to check the voltage between them to know if you are dealing with a power source that entails 220v. In short, you want to know what you are doing, obviously for personal safety, but also to accomplish what you want... to properly connect the motion detector.

Wiring diagram 3 way motion detector switch I want the motion detector to be in the hot line box, and I want a regular 3 way to turn the light on from the load box. So far I can only get the motion...


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 :-(

Lights only work in test mode sensor picks up motion


You are talking about a motion detector attached to some type of light I presume. Your numbers mean nothing, I'm sorry to day.

Very first consideration, you do have it correctly wired, right? White to white - black to black - green to green and ground. The red goes to the lamp black wire, right??? (Light White goes to neutral (white line))

I am very familiar with motion detecting lights, working at a large resort at the seashore.

Two conditions that must exist for this light to come on ... it must be dark and there must be a motion. There should be two adjustments on your detector; one is for sensitivity and the other is time the device should remain on.

Dark ... not just sundown ... are there other lights in the area that may cause your detector to think it is day time?

Sensitivity. On minimum sensitivity, your detector is nearly blind to any but the closest movements. On maximum, it will probably see bats flying by. You must adjust to meet your needs.

Does it have a warranty? I dont know. You would have to check the information that came with your light.

I hope this information helps you ... Positive comments are appreciated.

Thanks for clarifying your question and thanks for visiting FixYa.com

Dsc sensor not operating properly. I want to change it, is this very difficult? Thank you.


You don't mention what type of sensor. I assume it is a motion detector. Before replacing I would strongly suggest you first remove all power from the system by disconnecting the backup battery inside the control panel then pull the system's power transformer which should be plugged into an electrical outlet nearby. You will know that all power is removed by looking at the keypad - all lights on the display are off. Next remove the motion detector's front cover. Some detectors have a small screw on the bottom so that when removed the cover pops off. Others need to be opened using a flat blade screwdriver and prying off the cover. Once the cover is removed there should be a 4 conductor wire that is wired to a series of terminals. Observe the polarity of the wires, disconnect them and remove wall mounting screws. Install new unit. Be sure when wiring to connect power wires correctly. The 4 conductor wire should have a red (positive) wire and a black (negative) one. Connect the red to the + or pos terminal and the black to the - or neg terminal. Read the instructions that came with the new unit if in doubt. When finished plug the power transfomer back in then reconnect the battery (in this order). If power is connected properly the motion detector's red walk test light (indicating motion) should light whenever you walk in the protected area. Also make sure the system recognizes motion by first closing all protected areas such as windows and doors to get a system ready or green light indication on your keyad, then walk around the protected area. A properly working detector will show you a fault on the keypad everytime the system senses motion.
