New motion light wont shut off...


I had an existing motion light it all of a sudden would not shut off and was very old sooooooooooo. I replaced it and the new one does the same thing. I know it take a moment or two to set the motion so it comes on when it should and go off when it should but its been up for a week and a 1/2 and have to unscrew bulbs to shut off. Ill be right back with make and model.....Your thoughts

Secure Home 270 degrees also LED doesnt stop flashing. This is probably why it is not going off but why is it flashing constantly? I have the sensitivity all the way down set on 1 minute. It is taking me longer to do this then it was to install.

Sounds like the sensor is installed wrong or its bad. Let's go over the wiring. All the whites splice together. The black wires from the lights splice to the red wire from the sensor. The black wire from the sensor splices to the black feed wire. If you have that correct the sensor is bed. Put the sensitivity to the mid point time to five minutes and shut the switch off for a minute. Turn it back on and see what happens
