Motion sensor light questions
Does anyone know why the instructions that come with motion sensor lights say that you can't hook up more than two lights on the same circuit? I hooked up three lights and only two came on.

What kind is it? if it is a floodlight with an integrated motion sensor there may not be a way to hook up more than the two on the base. It could just be you didn't hook it up right.

There are three separate fixtures with integrated sensors in each one. Two fixtures on the garage and one by the front door.

are you trying to get them to all come on if one sensor senses motion?

Yes I am.

How are you hooking them up, how many wires are in each fixture?

I appreciate your help, but the wife just changed her mind as to what she wants so the motion sensing lights are no longer an option. Thanks again.
