Motion sensor flood lights staying on


I have two seperate motion activated flood lights that sometimes choose to stay on full time. I think they are both the same model with two lights and the duel stage lighting (where they come on bright and then dim for the remainder of the time it is set for). They don't always stay on, but more often than not at least one of them is on all day/night. Do I need new sensors on these, or could something like water penetration cause the sensors to detect motion?

I'd go with replacing the sensors.

And if at all possible... put the sensor in it's own box somewhere else.
