Why do my floodlights turn on but do not turn off?

Answer

If the Motion Monitor is accidentally powered off (from a wall switch that controls the power to it or a loss of power) while the floodlights are on, they will stay on when power is reapplied. To reset the Outdoor Motion Monitor, follow the instructions below.

  • Set RANGE control to MAX.
  • Set DUSK control to LIGHT.
  • Set TIME DELAY to 0.1.
  • Set THIS UNIT switch to SENSOR.
  • Turn off the power at the circuit breaker panel (in your breaker box). Wait 10 seconds.
  • Turn power back on at the circuit breaker (the floodlights will be on just like they were before power was turned off).
  • Wait for 1 minute, and then walk in front of the Motion Detector.
  • Make sure that it does not see any other movement for 10 seconds, and check that the floodlights turn off.
  • Set RANGE, DUSK, and TIME DELAY controls as desired, following the instructions in the owner's manual. Your Motion Detector Light Control is now ready to use. NOTE: When you first apply power to the Motion Detector, it will not start working until after a delay of 1 minute.
