Repairing a Motion Sensing Light

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 2:48 pm

This repair almost falls into the “most repairs are easy” group but it took me a bit of extra trial and error to find the problem this time. Our home in Campbell River that we moved into in 2012 had a motion detector light at the front entrance that had never worked correctly. The sensitivity to motion was much too low, and the sensitivity adjustment made no sense; the sensitivity was poor and useless, since motion more than a few feet away was not detected, and the sensitivity was at a maximum at the middle of the adjustment range, and at a roughly equal minimum at the supposed max and min settings. Usual caution: before you try repairing such a light yourself, disconnect the AC power! Be safe.
