Can I make a motion sensor light stay on? You can constantly keep a motion sensor light by wiring it with a double switch or three-position switch set up to bypass the sensor in one position. Alternatively, most motion sensors will keep a light on if you switch the sensor off and then on again quickly.
How do you override a motion sensor light? Yes, most sensors will have the ability to override the sensor function altogether and operate the light manually, as necessary. This is done by turning the light switch OFF – ON – OFF – ON in quick succession. The light will then remain ON and will not go OFF until you manually turn it OFF at the switch.
How do I reset my motion light stays on all the time? Reset your Motion Detector – To reset your motion light, unplug it from its power source for a full 10 seconds. Plug it back in and allow it to come back on. This should reset your light and turn off the auto-on function.
How do you override a motion sensor switch?
- Normally the switch is kept on all the time.
- If you turn the switch off and on within a second or so, the light will stay on, and this overrides motion detection.
- To go back to normal operation, turn the switch off and wait ~10 seconds, then turn back on.
