Motion Sensor Light
Troubleshooting faulty motion sensor lights.

Danny and Joe welcome callers’ questions each week on the Today’s Homeowner Radio Show.

Here’s a question from our April 11 broadcast:

Tom replaced 4 sets of outdoor floodlights with LED bulbs.  Now, he is experiencing the lights flashing instead of constant light when the motion sensor is activated.

Tom’s lights seem to have a mind of their own, some are working and some are not.  Sometimes this happens because of a bad diode in the bulb itself.

He could try switching the bulbs in each fixture to see if the problem is in the socket, then he would just need to switch out the sockets.

Listen to the embedded audio clip above for the answer! Read the blog from the April 11 show and listen to the full broadcast here.
