Greetings fellow ATS members. I have some stuff going on with our heat sensor light. Recently, this past weekend the light was turning on every hour
on the hour, and sometimes it would stay on for 30 minutes at a time. The thing is supposed to turn on when a person walks outside near our garage.
The recent owners told us it's supposed to only pick up large objects such as cars, animals, and anything big that walks past it. The thing is, when
it turns on, you look outside and see nothing. I know we have cats around here, and I've only seen those guys a couple of times. They do turn on the
This past weekend though I saw no animals outside or anything out there when the light turns on, and yes I have seen it turn on but nothing there. My
husband decided to film it since we have a new sports camera. We set it up one night through our upstairs window. Throughout the night, since I don't
sleep very well, and having to go to the bathroom, I noticed each time i got up the light was always on. In the morning we looked at the footage and
caught nothing! So we though maybe we needed it to be closer. The next night last Saturday we set it up in my husband's car, he parked in the grass,
we filmed for an hour, the light came on several times but didn't see what was turning it on. Then Sunday, nothing, the light didn't come on unless
we went outside or took our dog out. (let me make it clear in order for it to turn on you have to walk across our driveway, or be in front of it in
order for it to come on. The previous owners have it mounted on a tree. I tried to have it run on by walk around it and found it coes o if head
directly towards it) This past week it didn't come on at all, unless I went outside, it was our dog, or my husband coming home from work. Then all
of a sudden last night it turns on by itself again for the first time in a week. before I came downstairs to lock all doors and turn off our lights,
and noticed it was on. I mentioned it to my husband and he was like weird. This morning at 3am I went to the bathroom,and it was on.
What do you all think of this, i assume if it was a cat we would have caught it on camera, and if it was a fox same thing, i noticed that when the
animals turn it on, they sort of stop, or freeze, and then they scurry off. I have been sitting in my dining room at 6pm and have seen the thing
turning on with nothing in the driveway. Does anyone else have a light that does this, do you think it's malfunctioning, dying or what. If it was
malfunctioning don't you think it would do it all the time? Any thoughts? Thanks!
