Question

Outdoor Motion Detector Light


Motion detector red light is on - but lights won't come on. Has been in use for 4-5 years. Checked the adjustments - still no lights.

Check or replace the bulbs and clean the eye.

Eye


Hi Dexter,
Where is the eye? After I posted, I remembered I should have tested the bulbs. There are 2 very large bulbs. If one blows, one the other automatically blow as well?

The eye (my term anyway) is where it senses motion and/or light and dark. Some of them have a small opaque disk that can get dirty or bugs will mud up. Not likely that one bulb going would cause the other one to go out, but have seen numerous times where someone thought they both went out at once, when in actuality one probably burned out prior, and it wasn't noticed until the second one went out.
