Question about Costco Megabrite Wireless Motion Sensor Door/Entry Light with 3 AA batteries
I'm guess they don't stock for they stop working in a few months.
I have three and after three months, they go on and off when they want to.
If it detects movement, they may or may not work.
Loved them until they went crazy.
There are many posts on the net about the problems with these. I'm probably going to ask
COSTCO for a refund. I suspect they've given plenty already.

Amazon still has some two packs of this light. We had good service from ours, about 2 years. We did discover the light would go on and off continuously when the batteries were low (about 6 months on fresh batteries). Unfortunately it fell recently while doing some work under the front porch and that killed it. Miss this very convenient and easy to install light that made it easy to unlock the front door.
Took it apart but no servicable parts so just ordered a two pack.

Save hours of searching online or wasting money on unnecessary repairs by talking to a 6YA Expert who can help you resolve this issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.

Change Your Wireless Channel
If you're using a Linksys router, you'll need to browse to the address of your router, which is probably set to http://192.168.1.1 but could be assigned to another address. You can run a quick ipconfig command at the command prompt to check:
In my case the address is different (because I changed it, of course), but what you're looking for is the Default Gateway for your Wireless connection, and then go to http:// in your browser. Enter in the password that you hopefully remember, and head to the Wireless -> Basic Wireless Settings tab.
My router has two separate bands, but your router might just have a single band here. In my case, what I've done is set the 2.4 GHz band to only be used for Wireless-G, and the 5GHz one to Wireless-N only. Since I'm not having any problems with the Wireless-N settings, I've left those on auto.
Where I am having a problem, however, is my Wireless-G devices-so what I've done is chosen channel 9, since it's the only channel that's not being used by any of my neighbors, who are using mostly channels 1 and 6, though a few are using 11 as well.
Channels 1, 6, and 11 are the most common channels to choose, and most routers will use one of them as the default channel-but the general idea is to be as far away from everybody else as you can.
Note: I've also configured my router for 20 MHz only on the 2.4 GHz Wireless-G band, just because that was the only way it would let me choose the standard channel manually.
If you are using a different router, the IP address will generally be the same, but you'll have to figure out how to change the Wireless channel without any screenshot tours. It's usually fairly easy, though, once you know what you're looking for.

can be a number of reasons why this problem occurs.
It's possible that the battery life is too low after some time of usage. Please
replace all 3 batteries with new ones.
B) Your product needs resetting (very similar compared to rebooting up your computer). Please follow directions below:
You have just completed the resetting process. Now you may return the Light back to where it was installed. Be sure to leave the switch at AUTO and remove the black tape.
