Why wont my motion light shut off???


I bought a pretty good( dollar value 70.00) motion light and it turns on and doesnt shut off. Heres the kicker... It doesnt have an actual switch to the light, it actually runs into the outdoor outlet and into the house to the box. The only way to set is at the breaker so how can i set this so it will go on and off correctly? Im going to see if I can send a picture so youll be able to see what type of unit it is it possibly may help. This job has been sitting for a long time since I couldnt figure it out and kinda gave up on it.

Thank you

Read the instruction manual. Most motion sensors have a way to put the light in manual mode by a certain sequence of switching power to the light on/off. Being you don't have a true switch, you will have to do this at the breaker.
