PIR flicking on and off 30 times at end of time period

I have outdoor PIR sensor LED lights. One for 5 lights on the house, and 2 linked to each other and both PIR. When they are set to illuminate and after the time setting they do not switch off immediately but flick on and off for 30 times before turning off. What do I need to adjust to stop this happening?

Hi, both PIR are doing this? Is this a new install or something that just started? Model of sensors would be helpful.

Hi Geo,

thanks for your reply query.

the lights were newly installed one year ago and are Strom LED combined up and downlighters lights (ref 70270701) which we got from John Lewis. For the house, the PIR light above the front door links to 4 other lights (same except not PIR); the garage has two PIR Strom lights which if either detects movement they light together.

Hi, so is it just the 2 that are linked together that are flashing?

No, itís the house lights too. They are independent of each other. Any thoughts?

So you have one PIR light and four additional non PIR lights connected to it.
Then you have two independent PIR lights at the garage.

You only have one PIR that operates five lights. That means whatever that PIR light does.... the other four do the same. It should be completely independent of the two at the garage.

Some electronic PIR sensors cannot be linked together. That could be the garage problem.

Here in the States the ones we use have a white, black and red wire. Those can be connected together. I couldn't find any info on your PIR sensors.

Ok thanks for the reply. Sorry I didnít realise you are across the pond! Why do you think the house lights have this fault then as itís only one PIR? We wondered because the LED lights are not sufficient wattage to trigger it to go off immediately. Any thoughts are gratefully received. Jon
