SOURCE: Motion Light doesn't work on switch

it sounds like you may have the switch and the motion sensor wired is series , in which case the motion sensor will only function if the switch is in the on position and give you no way to keep the light in a constant on position. if you where to wire the sensor in parallel with the switch the switch would act as a bypass to the sensor , which sounds to me like what you are trying to achieve .

Just installed a motion activated light (model 021746). The light will not turn off; there is no switch.


in the installation notes , it probably reads to this effect
to run the light all the time --switch of power supply and switch on
to run a light sensor - turn the power off , back on back off back on
one action changes the internal program to leaving the light on , the other activates the sensor mode
the switch is the light switch that controls power to the unit

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.

Brinks motion activated security light model 7160w. Only stays on for about 15 seconds. Setting is on 10 minutes. Can someone help?


Sounds like the motion sensor is not picking up motion. Or, does it actually sense motion and only stay on for a short time each time? Try moving the setting, if this is the case and see if you see ANY change. If not, then replace the motion sensor.

Wiring a brinks motion sensor light, wired red wire to black wires but light doesn't work as it should, what's wrong.


Black from power supply goes to black from sensor. Red from sensor goes to both blacks from lights, all remaining whites go together.

Brinks 42-1009 ez vacation timer instructions


The Brinks 42-1009 EZ Vacation Timer is preset with 7 full days. You cannot choose when it goes on and off.

To set, spin the dial (clockwise only) until the arrow in the upper right of the center face is near the current day and time. Plug everything in and switch the upper tab to the right. On certain days, it will turn on in the early morning as well as evening or late night.

You cannot choose when to turn the light off. However, if you are home, you can turn the light on by switching the upper tab to the left. Remember to switch it back to the right in order to activate the timed on/off periods.

Motion Light doesn't work on switch


Try turning the switch on and off and back on again this usually will bypass the motion detector. when you are finished you can turn the switch off for a few seconds and back on and it will resume its normal function
