Some of these fixtures have a function built in that turns the light on solid if the power is cycled rapidly several times. If you have had power glitches and this unit has that function, it might be locked on.

Pull the circuit breaker for the light for a couple minutes then try re-powering it to reset the function.

How to reset/fix an indoor motion detector?


Depends on the model of the detector, but wireless motions are not supposed to light up; if they light up they have been put into test mode, either by opening the tamper switch, removing and reinserting the battery, or by positioning an internal jumper to the test position. If the motion is a 5890(PI), remove the batteries and short the empty battery sockets for about 30 seconds to reset the low battery circuit, then reinsert the batteries and close the cover, making sure the tamper switch is properly closed. Other motions don't need this reset procedure, but do need all tamper switches closed. Ensure no one is moving near the motion and reset the keypad by entering your code plus Off (just like coming home). If everything is right and all other devices closed the ready light should come 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 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.
Copy following link for wiring illustrations:
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-occupancy-switch.html#motion
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:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html#outdoor
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.:

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 :-(

Put light in test mode, it works great. Put in 2 min or 5 min setting and it won't come on at all. What's the deal?


Could be similar to a problem I had recently where the daylight sensor was being triggered by the light itself. Try re-pointing either sensor or light to keep the sensor in the dark when the lights are on...

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
