On most motion sensor lights if you turn the switch on, then off and on quickly, they will stay on till you turn them back off. Leave it off for at least 10 seconds and turn it back on to go back to the motion sensor.

How to Choose a Rocking Chair?


Some people think that rocking chairs are just the traditional wooden chair used to either nurse a baby or for sitting on the porch watching the sunset, but rocking chairs can be a great addition to a kid's room or part of lounge furniture.
Nowadays rocking chairs don't just come in plain wood designs. There are different colors and styles, chairs made from plastic or wicker and even especially ergonomically designed ones. Here are some tips to help you pick the type of chair that is right for you:
1. Decide what kind of motion you are going for. Chairs can either move back and forth or side to side (known as gliders). The back and forth chairs take up more space but give a smoother motion.
2. Choose the kind of material that you want your chair to be made from. Traditional rocking chairs are made from wood but you can also get in metal and plastic. If you want an outdoor chair, bear it in mind when deciding on your material choice.
3. Some rocking chairs come with cushions, others you have to buy separately. When they are attached they don't move around or fall off, but can't be cleaned as easily. Also removable cushions give you the option of choosing colors and patterns and changing your mind as time goes on.
4. Finally decide what your budget is. Rocking chairs can be bought for as little as under $100 for a very basic wooden design and cost up to several thousand dollars for hand crafted and exotic woods. Pick a budget range and stick to it.

I want to replace my existing single bulb porch light with a 2 bulb motion activated light. It would be operated with the existing switch. Is this ok to do?


Yes. Must keep switch turned ON.
Outdoor lights will only come on when motion is detected, otherwise light bulb does not come on. So the indoor wall switch does not work as override since the motion sensor takes over as the sole switch.

Other solutions include adding separate motion sensor light nearby and keep porch light so you can turn on-off when desired.
Another option is to add photocell to outdoor light so it turns on automatically at dusk.
Another option is to use outdoor yard timer with dawn-dusk capability:

Another option is to replace indoor wall switch with with dawn-dusk timer, that can also be used as ordinary on-off switch so you can turn porch light on-off when desired. Timer such as Intermatic ST01C offers simple 2-wire connection.:

My sensor no longer works. It use to turn on the porch light when someone entered the carporch. How do I open the sensor so that I can put new batteries in it? I know that it uses AAA batteries.


Manual for this sensor is not available.
In the Zenith I have installed The motion sensor battery slot was h at the back side of the sensor, you had to remove the sensor from the wall sliding it on one side to access the battery. It mounted two AA batteries, not AAA.

Riding mower surges in forward and not reverse. It


Ok first of all is not an automatic.Its a pedal operated transmission. The motion is accomplished by tightening a belt with a moveable idler and it is only shifted with a lever to forward and reverse. The belt probabley has a burnt spot in it and it hits that spot and it feels like a surge. Replace the motion belt

I have a John Deere Ride on Toy stuck in reverse


Are the actual shifter levers not engaging or are the switches not clicking?
These Peg Perego Parts are available at http://www.shopjandl.com/, but I would check to make sure if it is the switches specifically or the levers under the shifter.
It is simple to check the shifter by taking the 2 screws out that hold the shifter in.
Hope this helps.
Let me know what you find.
