Put a small piece of black tape over half the sensor. This will make it more sensitive to light conditions.

These are self contained units and all that you can do is take the ones that are not working properly back to get new ones. They should work fine out of the box and last up to 15 years!!

Most of the solar lights use a stadard 1.2 volt 850 mh nicad rechargable AA size battery and you can get them at your local Home Depot store. You also might try to clean the solar cell on the light they seem to get a film over them that stops some sun light from reaching the solar cell.

How do i operate smart solar lights?


Place the solar panel in a sunny spot to charge the batteries. If the lights do not come on at night, the panel's light sensor may be seeing other light sources and needs to be moved. The light sensor looks like a small white circle with a wavy line across it. They are usually visible and located in the solar panel. Make sure it is in the dark at night, or it will not come on. You can cover the light sensor to test that the lights are working.

OUTSIDE FLOOD LIGHTS HAVE BEEN ON FOR 2 DAYS. IS THE SOLAR CELL TIMER BROKEN? HOW DO I TURN LIGHTS OFF?


I cannot find a manual on this timer.

If I was at your house, I would try the following:
1) Read the manual troubleshooting section
2) Check for dirt over the sensor
3) Turn off the circuit breaker to timer/ or unplug from wall
4) Re-power timer and then Re-program timer
5) If these steps don't work, the timer may have gone bad

And lastly, since many people do not have the manual, press it flat in a book for two days, scan it just like you scan a photograph or have Office Depot scan it onto a disk. Load photo of manual onto Imgur or Flikr photo-sharing and then post that link in a fixya question so others can see the manual

I would like to rewire a solar security light (motion activated) to stay on at dark. Brand westinghouse


The light will only stay on as long as the battery lasts. My guess is that will not last all night. What you can do is buy a light sensor switch (or even a light sensor socket adaptor is available to save you from having to wire it in) to keep a light on during the night. You can use a CFL or even an LED lamp to save electricity, but it is unlikely that a solar-charged cell will power even one of thes all night long.
