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.

Light stays on on motion security light


If you click the power to it on and off and on again, they stay in permanently.

On a fixed installation, the sensitivity is set too high. Or it is faulty.

My Defiant LED outdoor white Blade Motion Security stays on all night


You may need to set the parameters once chosen which means you need to hold the set button in for at least three seconds once you have selected your choices.i usually set new up in the house and then check the duration of the light before installing in situ.

Cannot get light to go on and then off at programmed time. Stays on. At cottage with no neighbours or ambient light. Installed professionally, not by myself. Frustrated many efforts before contacting...


Light stays on all the time: Turn power to light off. Wait 10 seconds. Turn power back on.
Typical option on motion lights: Quick power flick -- light stays on. Slow power flick -- light goes into motion sensing mode.
Hopefully the professional installer gave you a switch.

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.

I really don't understand why these lights are so failure prone and I usually return at least 8 out of 10 back to the store but I've installed a lot of them. If its Zenith brand the light may need to be reset by turning the power off at the switch or breaker for 1-2 min then back on. Then check the motion sensitivity dial if its maxed out turn it back and set it to 75% full also the photo eye may be getting light from the light making it think its daytime at night so try to reaim the photo eye if possible away from the light source that should fix most problems or 20% of them but if you still have problems return it to the store or ask for their advise. Hope this helps I've seen a lot of junk motion lights in my time they are troublesome at times.
