IMPORTANT SAFETY AND INSTALLATION INFORMATION
Before installing security light, read all instructions carefully and keep owner’s manual for future
reference.
•WARNING: To prevent electric shock, please ensure that power is disconnected before installation.
•WARNING: Risk of fire. Keep fixture at least 51 mm (2") from combustible materials. Do not aim at objects
closer than 1 meter (3 feet).
1m
•CAUTION: Allow fixture to cool before touching. The bulb and the fixture operate at high temperatures.
• CAUTION: Use only T3, 250W (maximum) tungsten halogen 230 VAC lamps.
•CAUTION: Keep the sensor at least 25 mm (1") away from the bulb.
•CAUTION: The sensor must be mounted below the lamp housing for wall installations.
•This fixture must be connected to a 230V-240V ~ 50Hz power source.
•The fixture must be properly grounded.
•This fixture is designed for outdoor installation and should be mounted to a wall or eaves.
•To achieve best results, this fixture should be mounted 2.4 meters (8 feet) above the ground. Note: If fixture
is mounted higher than 2.4 meters (8 feet), aiming the sensor down will reduce coverage distance.
•Do not use dimmer switches or timers with this fixture.
•Replace any cracked or broken safety shield.
The sensor on this light fixture detects “motion” by the movement of heat across the coverage area. However, following are examples of objects that also produce heat and can cause the sensor to trigger:
• Pools of Water
• Air Conditioners • Dryer Vents • Animals
• Heating Vents
• Automobile Traffic
If you suspect that a heat source of this type is triggering the sensor, reduce the sensitivity.
The sensor on this fixture is more sensitive to the movement of heat moving across the coverage area
and less sensitive to the movement of heat directly towards it.

INSTALLATION
Canopy Extension
This light fixture must be installed by a
licensed electrician or other person authorized by legislation to work on fixed wiring
or other electrical installations.
UP
WARNING: Turn power off at circuit
breaker or fuse. Place tape over circuit
breaker switch and verify power is off at
the fixture.
IMPORTANT: Do NOT use with dimmers or
timers.
For best performance, mount the fixture about 2.4
meters (8 feet) above the ground. Note: If fixture is
mounted higher than 2.4 meters (8 feet), aiming
the sensor down will reduce coverage distance.
This fixture comes with a canopy extension. It is
pre-assembled on the fixture for shipping.
1. Remove the center mounting bolt connecting
the fixture canopy to the canopy extension (see
Figure 1). Note: Be sure rubber gasket is on
the canopy extension.
2. Place the canopy extension against the mounting surface and mark the positions for the
mounting screws (see Figure 2). Note: When
positioning the canopy extension for mounting,
do the following:
•Keep the mounting tabs level
•Make sure the canopy extension is turned
as shown in Figure 2
•Make sure the house wiring is located behind
or below the rubber grommet.
3. Use a power drill to drill into the wall to provide
a suitable mounting for the screws.
•Canopy extension mounting screws are not
included. Use 4mm dia. (8G) x 30mm screws.
•Care should be taken to avoid drilling or
screwing into concealed electrical wiring.
•For solid brick walls, screws and masonry
plugs should be used.
4. Make a small hole in the rubber grommet and
route the house wire through the hole (see
Figure 3).
5. Attach the canopy extension to the surface.

WIRING
FINAL ASSEMBLY
1. Double check all wiring connections.
2. Verify the rubber gasket is properly seated
around the edge of the canopy extension (see
Figure 6).
3. Align the center hole on the fixture canopy
with the center hole on the canopy extension
and attach using the mounting bolt removed
in step 1 of Installation (see Figure 6).
IMPORTANT:
•If wall mounted, make sure the fixture is
mounted with the sensor below the bulb
holders.
•If eave mounted, mount the fixture with
sensor facing away from the house wall (see
Eave Installation Information for important
sensor orientation information).
4. Push the rubber plug firmly into place (see
Figure 7).
5. Caulk around top half of canopy extension
with silicone weather sealant (see Figure 7).
6. Install bulb. Do not exceed wattage rating on
fixture label.
WARNING: Turn power off at circuit
breaker or fuse. Place tape over circuit
breaker switch and verify power is off at
the fixture.
1. Connect the house wires to the terminal block
according to diagram (see Figure 4). Make
sure all screws on terminal block are tightened
securely.
2. Remove the strain relief cover and place the house
wires across the strain relief (see Figure 5).
3. Replace the strain relief cover and tighten
securely. Note: Be careful not to overtighten
and damage the wiring.

EAVE INSTALLATION
INFORMATION
NOTE: The bulb is included, but need to be
installed. The bulb is located behind the glass
cover of the lamp head.
1. Remove glass cover and remove the old bulb
by pushing the bulb towards the right until
the left side of the bulb is clear of the left
socket.
2. To install the bulb, place one end of the bulb on
the contact in the right socket. While pushing
the bulb against the right contact, lower the
other end of the bulb onto the contact in the
left socket.
3. Spin the bulb to verify it is seated properly.
4. Re-install the glass cover.
For proper operation and safety, the light
fixture must be above the sensor and the sensor head must be rotated so that the controls
are on the bottom.
IMPORTANT: For under eave installation only, the
sensor head must be rotated as shown in the next
two steps for proper operation and to avoid the
risk of electrical shock. For proper under-eave
operation, install light shield (included). See
Light Shield Installation for details.
1. Rotate the sensor head towards the clamp
screw joint (see Figure 8).
2. Then rotate the sensor head clockwise 180° so
the controls face down (see Figure 9).
Note: If the sensor pops out of the ball joint, loosen
the clamp screw and push the sensor back into the
ball joint. Tighten the clamp screw when done.

to change the coverage
area. Keep the sensor
at least 2.5 cm (1") away from the bulbs.
6. Adjust the RANGE as needed. RANGE set
too high may increase false triggering due to
heat sources in the coverage area (see Troubleshooting section).
7. Secure the sensor head by tightening the clamp
screw. Do not overtighten the screw.
8. Set the amount of ON-TIME you want the
light to stay on after motion is detected (1, 5,
or 10 minutes). The timer will reset as long
as there is motion present. Once motion has
stopped, the timer will time-out after the
selected amount of time.
1. Turn on the circuit breaker and light
switch.
Note: Sensor has a 1 1/2 minute warm up period
before it will detect motion. When first turned
on wait 1 1/2 minutes.
2. Set:
•ON-TIME switch to TEST
•RANGE dial to Midway position

3. Adjust the lamp head by loosening the lock nut
or using a screwdriver. The lamp head must be
mounted horizontally (see Figure 11). After
positioning lamp head, tighten the lock nut
and apply thread sealant to ensure lamp head
does not rotate.
WARNING: Risk of fire. Do not aim the
bulbs at a combustible surface within 1
meter (3 feet).

LIGHT SHIELD INSTALLATION
If your light does not come on at dusk or turns
off unexpectedly, then another light source may
be activating the daytime shutoff feature. Possible
sources of light interference are street lights, landscape lighting, other security lights or lanterns, or
an interior house light shining through a window.
It could also be reflective light, such as from a pool
or light colored wall.
To install the light shield, follow these simple
steps.
1. Remove protective backing from the bottom
of the light shield.
2. Position light shield over the photocell with
the opening facing away from the interfering
light.
3. Press the adhesive side firmly against the
photocell to mount it permanently in place.
