HOOK TROUBLESHOOTING: If you have a problem with your Motion Sensor, first follow this guide. If the problem persists, call the customer service hotline at 1-866-853-4293 between 8:00 A.M. and 6:00 P.M. EST weekdays. SYMPTOM Light does not automatically turn on. For OS306U only
Light does not automatically turn off.
Light does not stay on Remote switch does not work
POSSIBLE CAUSE 1. Circuit breaker is turned off, or fuse is blown. 2. Bulb is defective. 3. Poor connection. 4. Control may be wired incorrectly. 5. Daylight sensing prevents lights on 1. Motion is still present. 2. Time Delay has not expired. 3. Control may be wired incorrectly. 4. Switch is being triggered by air vent or other heat source. 1. Motion is not detected. 2. TIME control is set for too short a delay 1. Control may be wired incorrectly.
SOLUTION 1. Turn circuit breaker on, or replace fuse. 2. Replace light bulb. 3. Verify all wiring connections. 4. Check wiring. 5. Re-adjust daylight sensing level. 1. Make sure there is no motion during the time delay period. 2. No action needed or shorten TIME DELAY. 3. Check wiring 4. Move switch to the other switch location (if a 3-way), or determine the source triggering the switch, and alter the air flow. 1. Create movement in front of the sensor for 5 seconds. 2. Set switch TIME control to longer time period. 1. Check wiring
