Outdoor motion sensor security light

Our outdoor security light does not come on. We see the red light flashing on it sensing motion but the lights do not come on. If I switch to TEST position they come on ,so bulbs are good and has 120 volt input. This has happened a few other sporatic times seems like after a rain.
Could it be a loose wire nut with the internal cluster of wires from the switches and sensitivity potentiometer which in test mode possibly bypasses everything?
Obviously its not the hot or neutral from the power source.
I cleaned the glass eye shield per say.

SOURCE: 120 volt folorescent light sign with a photocell

Based on what you've written, it should be black to red, white to white, and green to green. If you still have trouble, post a picture so I can have a better look of this photo-cell.
Hope this helps,
Kermit

SOURCE: Bulb comes on, turns off immediately on timer-installed switch

there could be a few reasons for this,
1. the timer could have been damaged during a power surge, = unusable and needs replacement
2. The program set to switch on and off was lost, and needs to be reset, try to operate the reset button, and setting the parameters again., If this is the cace, make sure the backup battery is still ok

I have an installed PIR exterior motion sensing light, but no instructions on how to set the controls. Now, if it senses motion, it will stay on for hours.


the sensor has at least 2 knobs maybe 3. one show hands of a clock one show sun. one may show sensitivity. the adjustment is low to hi the wider the adjustment the greater the setting check out this picture on ebay for the icon.

I have lost the manual for this product and would like to know how to set it up, at this time it stays on when the light switch is on.


If you turn the switch off and on real quick the light should stay on. If you turn the light off for about 5 seconds and then turn it one, then it should sense something that moves and is warm depending on the sensitivity switch setting.

What do I do with the red wire on a Brinks Halogen Motion Sensing outdoor security light


Please perform these connections with the mains power off.

The standard is the Black wire is hot, the White wire is neutral, and the Red wire is switched. For your Sensor connection 120V is connected Black to Black and white to white while the Load is connected White to White and Black to Red (assuming your load is using standard color coding.
Here is a simple diagram for your connection.

My motion security light keeps blowing only the left side bulb.


I assume you mean that the light bulb is failing. This can be caused by a faulty connection at the base of the lamp which causes the bulb to heat at the connection point. Remove the bulb and (with power off!) examine and clean the bulb socket.

I have outdoor security lights that run on a timer. Are there some that use a motion detector?


Yes, in fact most people have motion-detector activated lighting so they can know if there is suspicious activity outside of their home. Many security companies also offer systems that allow you to operate the lighting at your home from a smartphone or personal computer, which can help save electricity when it comes to outdoor lighting.

Have Cooper lighting outdoor motion detected flood


Sounds like the relay in motion sensor. Change the bulb. Rechargeable batteries are no good after 3-4 years also.
