Customer Question

I have two motion lights controlled by one wall switch. When I turn switch off and turn quickly on both lights go off like they should but in about four seconds one comes back on stays on. What should I do.

Hi,I'm Mike G and I'll be assisting you. Motion lights are intended to turn on and stay on when the switch is turned on, off and back on quickly. The one that doesn't do that is defective.
