My place has a motion sensor connected to lights which appears to be the Schneider SAEUEMSCDWE Electric 360 PIR Motion Sensor.

 

It's set to around 5s, and I want to extend this to at least a minute.

 

Anyone know how to adjust the timing?

Usually there are lux and time screws on the unit somewhere, it's just a case of turning the time screw up a bit.

As above you might need to pry the cover off.

Thanks

 

I should've said what I've done so far:

 

1) looked for time screws on the motion sensor and lights - not obvious externally. The associated wall switch is simply that.

 

2) google including looking for instruction manuals

The dials are probably on the back, or under the cover ring on the front.

You should be able to gently pull the unit down out of its hole, it'll have springs like a downlight that will try to smash your fingers when it comes out.

It appears yours is on the front under the outer ring. The ring should twist (probably clockwise) and fall off.

This is probably the manual

And it was set to exactly 5s. Have set to 5 min, hopefully means it's no longer a strobe light at night when it's windy.

Little known fact, many PIR sensor lights, like the typical black twin bulb ones that are common in NZ, if you switch them on and off rapidly they will stay permanantly on until you turn them off, and on again when they return to normal sensor mode.
