the sensor seems to be working as the led flashes whrn it detect motion, however it will not shut the light off. thoght it might be a bad sensor so replaced and new one does the same,
Asked by: Bob

Lamps will not come on to full light level

I have this unit set to dualbrite - off, and lamp mode - normal, but the lights will not come on to full brightness. Any ideas? Otherwise it works as it should (comes on at night when motion is detected and shuts off as it should).
Asked by: Griff
I have the same trouble and have it set exactly the same way. It stays on half light all the time bit kicks into full when the motion sets it off.

the light stays on all night long. What is the problem?

The sensor seems to be working correctly with the red led light blinking as its suppose to, however, the light stays on all night long. What can I do to make it work as a motion sensor and not dusk to dawn light?
Asked by: larry
If this sensor came already with the rest of the light sockets in the fixture when you purchased it, simply turn the light switch controlling it two times rapidly, and that will turn the motion sensor on, and the photocell off. Also, make sure all the switches on the sensor head itself are turned on and in good working order as well. Joseph

Light Stays On after 5 min setting

The original installation went well and the sensor worked as designed with setting set per instructions. Later, one of the two bulbs burned out but the other light stayed on. I replaced the bad bulb and the unit lights still stayed on. I had to run the circuit off. Any suggestions what's doing this after it had been working fine., bad unit maybe, under two year mfg warranty.
Asked by: JC
Added note: After one year of operation, a few things noted from Defiant on this device: 1) Should turn off circuit before changing a bulb. 2) I tried to reset it by turning circuit off and on, a couple times and resetting the settings 3) Unit appears to have failed and needs to be replaced 4) Am requesting another unit under the 2 year warranty

Replacement motion sensor

I have the manual but I still can not figure out how to replace the motion sensor
Asked by: ETY
If you cannot do the basic wiring and following the directions PLEASE leave it to a qualified person to install. You would not want an electrical fire due to a wiring issue

270 Degree White Replacement Outdoor Motion Sensor is rated 2.6 out of 5 by 56.

Easy to install if you are comfortable with very basic wiring and directions are pretty straightforward which helps. Can't comment on longevity but works well out of the box, comes on when it should, stays on for as long as it should, and does catch motion within the 270 degree range as advertised. Deducted one star because it is a little pricey and it does not work with all LED bulbs (EcoSmart) the bulbs continuously blinked on and off when the fixture was turned on, ended up another brand (Cree) of LED bulbs which worked without an issue.

It has always done a good job with proper function for many years of service. And with a 10 yr warranty. However, recently, the last year or so, this product has gone in the dumper. I have had 4 units fail within days to weeks of installation. The failure mode hasn't been the same in all cases. My most recent F.M. has to do with the "dusk to dawn" operation. The unit goes on and never shuts off in the light of day. Other F.M.s are a shorted triac which always has the lights on or a blown triac which never turns the lights on. The move to have the Chinese produce this product instead of the U.S. in this case has not made things better. Sorry for the unfavorable report. Ron in Mesa

This unit does not work with LED bulbs, regardless of what the Home Depot employee's say. It works fine if incandescent bulbs are to be controlled. LED bulbs do not pull enough Amps to keep the unit switched on, so if just flashes the LEDs, never coming on steady. Searching the box for spec does not indicate a required Amp draw. Lowes has sensors available for LEDs, but don't rely on their associates or you'll end up with this same unit.

This outdoor motion sensor works well and the installation process was straight-forward and easy to complete. So far, everything is working as planned. I returned to purchase two other units to use on two additional outdoor light fixtures.
