Is there a trick to getting it to work?

This question is from 360 Degree Mounted White Motion Sensor Fixture
Asked by
midnightgolfer
July 18, 2013
I have the following fixture, attached to this sensor via only the "ballast bypass" factory connectors (which match the fixtures, and can only be connected one way, plus the ground-to-ground, of course.)

Lithonia Lighting 2 ft. White LED High Bay Light
Model # IBH 11L MV Internet # 203812710 Store SKU # 691941

The light turns on, but no matter what combination of pressing the button 2x, or no matter how many times, and no matter how long I wait, it stays on, for hours and hours, even if I wrap a towel around the sensor, to make sure it isn't picking up on some movement.

That was my plan, but it didn't work for me. The power went through, but there was no motion detection and no LED (like you're describing) (To be fair, I foolishly clipped off the connectors before I put the device up, so I'm not sure I had the right sets of wires.) It took some trial and error (always with black wires as hot and whites as common) and I ended up having to have both the white-with-red-stripe and white wires connected to common for it to work. You've got to have the green LED lighting up or it won't control the light. Read Less

Answer: 
I had the same issue. Every time the unit looses power it seems to need resetting. I didn't need the light to stay on for 15 minutes. And after doing the 9 Press reset, then 2 press I only pressed it once to set the sensor up on a 30 second timer. The light will remain on as long as motion is detected and then start the 30 second timer it works perfectly in our closet.

Answer: 
Factory reset the device by pushing the programming button 9 times, wait three seconds, then push the button twice. Then cover the sensor with a box for 15 minutes to confirm timeout. If the problem persists, please contact the manufacturer tech support at 1-800-727-7483.

Answer: 
Hi JED1,
The way motion sensors work is that the sensor goes on before the light itself.
With that said, you would break up the lights with 2 power sources so that both ends would detect motion on either end.
However, you cannot connect 2 sensors on one source.

Customer Reviews

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 38 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Detection range not what expected I ordered 22 of these to use in a garage lighting retrofit project. Of the 22, three were bad out of the box. One would not power on al all; two others would power on but not control the attached light. Exchanged units worked fine. Fits well into a standard knockout. As others have said, wiring can be confusing and the printed documentation is useless if you're not installing in a fixture with connectors matching those of the sensor. I dislike the fact that of the 5 wires, 3 are solid and 2 are stranded. The stranded wire can be difficult to seat solidly when using push-in wire connectors. They operate as advertised, although when mounted at 8-foot height, the detection range is much less than I anticipated, not more than 10 feet in some cases (when properly using the provided low-bay lens, of course.) At that height, the sensors seem sensitive to being very level, as a slight tilt down can lower the range even more. Setting the operating interval is simple and reliable. These emit a very pronounced "click" when they activate; you wouldn't want to mount this in a quiet area where that would be annoying. Having to make 3 trips to a store to replace the bad units was irritating, and hopefully isn't indicative of poor life expectancy. LIthonia could do a better job with the packaging. Nearly every one of these found at local stores had seriously mangled boxes; a couple were missing the optional low-bay lens. Other than the somewhat disappointing range, these are doing the job of controlling our lighting based on occupancy. The price is among the lowest I've found (you can spend a lot more for a sensor) and in that respect they're a good deal. June 18, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Frustrated with the instructions? For those of you who find the included instructions to be somewhat of a joke, here are the wiring instructions plain and simple: • The motion sensor has two sets of wires. One set has two wires (white and black) and the other set has three wires (white, black and white with a red stripe). • The connection from the motion sensor with two wires (white and black) connects to the light switch wires that come out of the ceiling which should also be white and black. Connect black to black and white to white. • The connections from the motion sensor with three wires (white, black and white with a red stripe) go to the light fixture wires. Black to black and white & red-stripe to white. I pieced together these instructions from multiple searches on the Internet. Why on Earth the manufacturer did not bother to put detailed instructions is beyond me. I hope they are reading this and know that I almost took the stupid thing back to the store which translates to “you could lose revenue over this matter so get off your butt and insert proper instructions with your product(s). August 28, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great product This product is awesome that is why I gave it 5 stars. Once you have it up and installed properly it works just as it is intended to be used. I also like that it has multiple timing selections that can be used. That being said I will say the instructions on how to install it were terrible. I would rate the installation instructions a 1 star. August 3, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works Very Well! I used this sensor in a commercial building to turn the hallway lights on and off. It was mounted on the ceiling near the LED fixture. It works very well, has long range pickup and I plan to use it again for other similar applications. It also is very fairly priced and is easy to program. February 17, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works very well, found it very easy to install and program I'll start by stating that I'm not an electrician or professional contractor. I bought two of these to control two 8' T5HO fixtures in the garage that tend to get left on all day. Pro: Not much to the installation-all parts are included for a standard installation. I found the instructions to be very easy to follow. Con: Top of the fixture is rather 'long' and couldn't be directly attached to my T5 fixtures (which are very small). I made a trip to the local HD and bought two pieces to adapt the sensor to the fixture. I removed the wires from the larger plug and fed the rest of it through the adapter and reattached the wires to the plug. Overall: I tested the first unit by putting my BBQ mitt over the sensor and waiting 15 minutes (the default setting). At 15 minutes and 3 seconds the light turned off. I'm leaving this part alone as 15 minutes is about where I wanted it to be in the end anyway. Installation of the first unit took 30 minutes while I worked out a way to install the sensor on the small T5HO fixture. The second unit (with the two additional pieces) took less than 10 minutes. I used a flat blade screwdriver, a pair of pliers (to remove the plug on the light fixture), and four larger wire nuts. December 6, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to install Reading the comments made it easier for me to understand how to install. The biggest thing to know is that the connector that has two wires attaches to the wire that goes to the light switch. The connector that has three wires goes to the light. February 6, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nice sensor Easy to install. Direction weren't too complicated. I mounted mine right on the end of the first fixture. This way the subsequent fixtures on the circuit would all go on/off as well. May 13, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by IS NOT ADJUSTABLE! Product not as described! I'm heading back to Home Depot for my third sensor! Cannot adjust the time! The sensor works great! I disconnected my garage door opener lights, when the sensor sees the door movement the lights come on. Would like to be able to lessen the on time. March 23, 2014
