WARNING: Turn power off at circuit breaker or fuse when wiring fixture or replacing bulbs. Place tape over circuit breaker switch and verify power is off at the fixture.CAUTION: Do not cut any wires that have factory installed wire connectors or remove the wire connectors.
This device complies with Part 15 of the FCC Rules. Operation is subject to the following two conditions: (1) this device may not cause harmful interference, and (2) this device must accept any interference received, including interference that may cause undesired operation. CAN ICES-3 (B)/NMB-3(B)
Before beginning installation of product, make sure all parts are present. Compare parts with hardware contents list. If any part is missing or damaged, do not attempt to assemble, install, or operate the product. Tools Required for Assembly (not included): Phillips and flathead screwdrivers, pliers, wire strippers/cutters, multimeter, electrical tape, silicone sealant, safety glasses, work gloves, and ladder
For easy installation and to operate the light using Manual mode, replace an existing light fixture operated by a wall switch.Do not connect to dimmers or timers.For best performance, mount fixture about 6 feet (1.8 m) above the ground.Estimated Installation Time: 30 minutesHARDWARE CONTENTS
Note: Illustrations may vary from actual unit.
LIGHT FIXTURE INSTALLATION
For best performance, mount the fixture about 6 feet (1.8 m) above the ground.
Remove two decorative nuts.Remove mounting plate.Tighten mounting screws finger tight.Attach mounting plate to junction box.
Note: We recommend having an assistant help hold the lantern assembly during the wiring process.
This fixture comes with a universal mounting bracket. It is pre-assembled on the fixture to fit the majority of junction box applications.
If the slots on the mounting plate do not line up with the junction box screw holes, follow these steps:
Remove the fixture mounting screws from the mounting plate. Note: Do not remove the ground screw.Attach ground wire “pigtail” to ground screw on mounting plate (See Recommended Grounding Method for additional information).Flip the mounting plate over.Rotate the mounting plate so the wire path is on the upper right. Note: The wire path on the mounting plate must be located as shown below to allow the wires on the back of the fixture to pass through.Reinstall the fixture mounting screws and attach the mounting plate to the junction box as shown.
WIRING THE LIGHT FIXTURE
WARNING: Turn power off at circuit breaker or fuse.
Note: All wiring must be run in accordance with the National Electrical Code through conduit or another acceptable means. Contact a qualified electrician if there is any question as to the suitability of the system.

CAUTION: DO NOT connect the RED wire unless you want to control other lights from the motion sensor (see Optional Wiring).
Connect the fixture wires to the wires in the junction box. Twist the wires together and secure with wire connectors.
Recommended Grounding MethodUse a green ground “pigtail” (not provided) and twist one end together with the bare fixture wire and the box ground wire. Secure with a wire connector. Secure the other end of the “pigtail” with the GND screw on the mounting plate.
If you have a metal junction box, you may not need the green “pigtail”. If you are unsure about the grounding method, consult your local building code.
This fixture is provided with a sensor rated for 500 Watts. Since the fixture is only rated 60 Watts, 440 Watts of additional lighting may be controlled by this sensor.When determining what a fixture is rated for, do not simply look at the rating on the light bulb in the fixture. Look at the marking which specifies the maximum bulb wattage for which the fixture is suitable. Once you have selected the fixtures to be connected and determined their maximum ratings, add these ratings up. For instance, if you have 3 fixtures rated 60 Watts, 150 Watts, and 100 Watts respectively, you have a total load of 310 Watts.Wiring Diagram 1 – When wiring to control a standard light fixture: Strip the motion sensor’s red wire and connect to the standard light’s black wire. Connect all white wires together. Total fixture ratings must not exceed 500 Watts (4.1 A).Wiring Diagram 2 – When wiring to control another motion sensing light fixture (Primary / Controlled): Strip the red wire in both light fixtures. Connect the red wire of the controlling (Primary) fixture to the red and black wires of the controlled (Controlled) fixture. Connect all white wires together. Total fixture ratings must not exceed 500 Watts (4.1 A).Wiring Diagram 3 – When wiring so either motion light turns on the both motion lights (Primary / Primary): Strip the red wire in both light fixtures. Connect the red wire of one fixture to the red wire of the second fixture. Note: In most installations, an additional wire (same gauge as existing house wire) will have to be installed in the house to connect the two fixtures as Primary / Primary. Connect all white wires together and all black wires together. Total fixture ratings must not exceed 500 Watts (4.1 A).
MOUNTING THE LIGHT FIXTUREMake sure wire connectors and wires are inside the junction box.Slide the fixture assembly onto the mounting screws. Tighten decorative nuts removed in step 1 of Light Fixture Installation section securely against fixture base.
Install one medium base light bulb (60 Watt maximum, tungsten incandescent).
TESTING AND ADJUSTMENTS Initial Setup
The TEST mode overrides the photocell (daylight shutoff feature) and allows the light fixture to be tested day or night when the ON-TIME switch is in the TEST position. The light will stay on for 5 seconds after all motion has stopped.
