Heath Zenith

why do my motion sensor lights go on/off every 7 seconds?

This is the 2nd unit to do this. I may have fried the circuitry of the prior one with CFLs. So I bought a new one, I am using regular bulbs, but it's still doing it. I've tried every combination of setting, confirmed nothing is in in the way of the sensor, etc. It's a Heath/Zenith SL 5318. Any ideas?

The only thing that comes to my mind is that the bulbs are too close to the sensor. It may be detecting that the bulbs are "light enough outside" so it thinks it is daytime and shuts off. Then it sees it is dark and comes back on. Most of them require flood bulbs. They have a mirrored backing that keeps the light from shining back into the sensor. Good luck...
