By the way I never read the bulb wattage if you are going to size the circuit or switch rating I have to go by ballast rating so you will have to look it up but IIRC 8 foot slimline they will take about 1.5 to 2.5 amp depending age of ballast itself.
Note: with bad slimline ballast they will draw more current than a good one will draw.
Correct the circuit should be sized to the ballast rating. But, we don't know the ballast rating, and the sum of the lamp wattage gives me a good idea that his motion sensor is overloaded.
First picture is the light apart. Just one ballast per light I have 4 total.
Second picture is of the switch that is in it right now. Single throw single pull. The other switch is not related.
Third is the back of the motion switch.
Last is the Ballast.
I also notice that on the Spec sheet it says that my bulb (F96T12) is a 75 watt. When its clearly marked 60 watts. If my sensor is being over loaded can't I just wire in a relay? I don't know much on AC relays. Shouldn't be to hard to learn.
