Question about Kitchen Appliances - Others

1 Answer

Our new house has motion detectors outside, I installed new lights that turned on, but when I turned one of the three knobs located underneath the detector the lights when out and I can't seem to get them to turn on again. What are those three dials for? There is no indication next to each dial. If I turn them to to right for instance, does that mean its on the on position? The detector is an older model I would guess pretty standard type. ie; two large flood lights with a detector sticking outwards. Thank you

I have a motion detector light installed in my outside screen porch.


If the light makes the screen itself light up, then when the light comes on, the photo sensor thinks it is daytime, and shuts the light off. When the light is off, the photo detector turns it on....

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.

Do you have a wiring diagram to wire a security motion detection light between 2 3-way switches so switches can be turned: (on-Motion)/(on- Completely) from 2 differemt locations?


One of the switches needs to be a 4-way then the PIR will act as any other switch. The downfall is if the lights are on and motion is sensed they will turn off.

My preference is to connect the contacts of the security device across the travelers of the three way circuit. The travelers are probably the red and black in the three conductor cable. When motion is detected the lights will turn on regardless of the settings of the three way switches then after timeout they will turn off. If they are turned on with one of the three way switches nothing will happen when the motion detector turns on except you cannot turn the lights off until the security device has turned off.

I hope this helps. The motion contacts need to be isolated from the motion detector power.

I have two outside motion detector lights acting weard


I don't know what type of sensor you have , but most have a sensitivity and range adjustment on them, I would turn one or both down and see if that helps. Also make sure the sensors are not aimed at each other, the heat from the bulbs on the other fixture can cause the opposite fixture to trigger on & vise- versa. Good Luck

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 :-(

The light will stay on as long as you are in the garage and it detects body heat. If you leave the garage the light should turn off.
