Can you deactivate a motion sensor light?

Yes, most sensors will have the ability to override the sensor function altogether and operate the light manually, as necessary. This is done by turning the light switch OFF – ON – OFF – ON in quick succession.

How do you change a motion sensor light to a normal light?

Most motion detectors have a built-in override:

  1. Normally the switch is kept on all the time.
  2. If you turn the switch off and on within a second or so, the light will stay on, and this overrides motion detection.
  3. To go back to normal operation, turn the switch off and wait ~10 seconds, then turn back on.

How do I deal with my neighbors bright lights?

Stay positive and don't argue. Be tactful and understanding about your neighbor's right to light their property. Suggest alternatives to their current fixture. Ask them to move the light, shield it, or add a motion sensor so it's activated only when needed.
