How to Reset a Zenith Motion Sensor Floodlight

The Zenith Motion Sensor Floodlight is designed to turn a floodlight on when an object passes in front of its built-in sensor. A power surge in the home’s electrical system can cause the Zenith to malfunction -- leaving the motion sensor inoperable so that the floodlight does not turn on. You can reset the Zenith so that it will again function. No tools are needed.

Things You'll Need

  • Ladder, 20 feet
