Question about Hardware & Accessories
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.

First, let me say that if you're not entirely comfortable doing high voltage electrical work, you might want to call an electrician. It's not impossible for you to get hurt or killed or burn down your house. At least be sure to turn of the circuit breaker while you're working on it.
The blacks and whites twisted together are passing through power to other parts of your premises and are always on, so be sure to keep them twisted together. The red is the one that will take power from your light switch and send it to your light fixture.
At the fixture, connect the white to white and red to black, the same as before. At the light switch, connect the black to one side of the switch and the red to the other. When you turn on the switch, it will permit power from the black to travel down the red to the fixture, and from the fixture, the circuit will be completed through the white.

I am reasonably sure the black wire connects to the black/hot power wire coming in, and the red continues on to the light. I am positive the white wire is connected to all the other white wires. The white wires usually do not connect anywhere on the device, just wire nutted together in the box
