Homebase Half Lantern With PIR

Postby chriscba » Sat Nov 19, 2016 1:40 pm

Fitted this light no problem, went test it, but stayed on, just a flicker of it going off, then back on again. I've got it on the daytime setting & on the miminum time setting, it just won't go off, only when I put it on night setting I can get it to go off, in the daytime.
Took it back to Homebase, came home with another, right I set up a test cable & tested it in the dark this time, still the same. I,m a Qualified spark & have fitted loads of these PIR lights & never come across this problem before.
I'll be taking this light back.

So if I understand this correctly. You have installed motion activated light.
When doing the walk through test, the light stays constantly activated.
But on occasion does flicker off/on.

Any other moment in the area, such pets/animals, vehicle, people, fumes or wind movement?
