Certain motion detectors, including wireless, either are programmed to only use light for testing or have the option of turning it off via a dip switch in the device.

SOURCE: Since the VEO motion detector is no longer

The motion detector is available new on Ebay right now from an electronics surplus dealer. Just type in 12v motion as your search and at least half a dozen come up. I bought one and it was new in the box with the instructions.

I want my motion securtiy light to acturally stay on all night. more after animals than people, can this be done?


What is the point of having a motion trigger on it then? Wire it direct to the switch or remove the sensing unit and turn it on at dusk and off at dawn using a timer.

As per request. re: reset/fix indoor motion detector.


on all the Honeywell or Ademco wireless motion detectors I have worked on the light will not come on with the cover in place, it is set that way to conserve battery life. If you want to be sure it is working properly arm your system and wait at least 4 minutes before walking in front of he motion then walk in front of it and see if it trips the alarm.

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.

The red wire from motion detector connects to both of the black wires from the lights. The black wire from the motion detector connects to the incoming black wire from the switch or source. The white wire from the motion detector connects to both of the white wires from the lights and to the incoming white wire from the switch or source (all white wires are under one wirenut).

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 :-(

Lights only work in test mode sensor picks up motion


You are talking about a motion detector attached to some type of light I presume. Your numbers mean nothing, I'm sorry to day.

Very first consideration, you do have it correctly wired, right? White to white - black to black - green to green and ground. The red goes to the lamp black wire, right??? (Light White goes to neutral (white line))

I am very familiar with motion detecting lights, working at a large resort at the seashore.

Two conditions that must exist for this light to come on ... it must be dark and there must be a motion. There should be two adjustments on your detector; one is for sensitivity and the other is time the device should remain on.

Dark ... not just sundown ... are there other lights in the area that may cause your detector to think it is day time?

Sensitivity. On minimum sensitivity, your detector is nearly blind to any but the closest movements. On maximum, it will probably see bats flying by. You must adjust to meet your needs.

Does it have a warranty? I dont know. You would have to check the information that came with your light.

I hope this information helps you ... Positive comments are appreciated.

Thanks for clarifying your question and thanks for visiting FixYa.com
