Can't turn off security light permenantly


It sounds as if the light is being controlled by a single 3-way switch. The hot lead is run to the common and two switched hots are run to the traveller terminals.

You could create a master switch by adding a single pole switch that interrupts the hot lead before it goes to the 3-way. You could expand the box holding the switch to a 2-gang type and wire the new switch with the existing hot lead and a short pigtail from its second terminal to the 3-way common.

You also could do the same with a double switch in the existing single gang box. Either a single pole/3-way combination or even a 3-way/3-way combination would work.

In this case, the pigtail runs from one terminal of the master switch (the single pole switch) to the common terminal of the 3-way. if you are using a dual 3-way, just leave one of the traveler terminals unused.

In either case, the white (neutral) and ground leads are left connected, just adding a pigtail from the grounds to the...

Every switch sits in-between two hot wires. One is always hot, from the mains, and one is hot when the switch is active, and that one goes to the controlled device(s).

It sounds like you have connected the hot wire (black) from the mains directly to the hot going to the fixtures. The always hot switch should be connected to one black wire on the dimmer and the black from the fixture to the other black on the dimmer. Check the dimmer to see if there is a marking to indicate which is which.

The easiest way to test which black wires are which is to use a non-contact tester. Turn off the breaker. Separate the black wires, put a wire nut on the exposed end of each and turn the power back on. Check each black wire to see if it registers as hot on the tester. The one that is hot is the mains. The one (or more) that are not go to the fixtures.

In general, all white (neutral) wires are connected. This assumes the white wire is not being used as a hot line. If it is, it...

indows XP has a built in security center that monitors the activities or existence of Automatic Updates, Windows Firewall and virus protection provided by third party anti virus software. When one or more security component do not been installed, or been disabled or turned off, or not working, Windows Security Center will highlight the section in yellow or red for warning and critical attention.

Windows Defender is the default antivirus solution of Windows 10 just like it has been on Windows 8. The program is enabled by default and will turn itself off if another antivirus solution is installed provided that it is recognized by the operating system.

One core difference between the implementation on Windows 8 and 10 is that you cannot turn off Windows Defender completely anymore using the preferences provided in the application.

A click on Settings in Windows Defender opens the control panel for the program in the new Windows Settings application. While you find options to toggle the program's real-time protection there, it is indicated right on the page that this is just a temporary state change.

You can turn this off temporarily, but if it's off for a while we'll turn it back on automatically.

It is unclear why Microsoft made the decision to change the behavior of Windows Defender in this regard. What is certain however is that it will annoy...

If you're looking for a permanent solution to disable Windows Defender, in this guide we show you how to turn it off using Group Policy and the Registry.

Windows Defender is the free antivirus software that Microsoft includes on every installation of Windows 10 (and Windows 8.1). The security software is meant to offer the first line of defense to protect your computer against viruses, rootkits, spyware, and other types of malicious code.

The antivirus runs automatically on your computer, but it'll disable itself automatically when it detects another security software is installed on your device. The only caveat is that unlike the Windows Defender integration with Windows 8.1, you can't permanently disable the antivirus anymore.

Perhaps the reason is obvious, Microsoft doesn't want you to use Windows 10 with zero protection -- which it's a good reason. However, there are still those cases where users may prefer not to run an antivirus on particular...

If you're testing your app you shouldn't really need to disable HTTPS, nor is that really a representative test if you're using HTTP but almost all your users will be using HTTPS (as is the case with Facebook)

It'd be better to get a free cert from or similar free CAs, use OpenSSL to generate an in-house CA or self-signed certs, or accept the certificate warnings from the default cert that ships in your webserver, if any, than to disable the secure browsing option on your Facebook account for this purpose;

As for the option itself in the Facebook setting, that's somewhat off topic for here, and I'm unsure what the exact status is but I believe the option to browse Facebook insecurely is being phased out

Another option for testing is to run a test server with a separate proxy to your production environment (e.g nginx) for test purposes and log all the traffic to that server for...

To be completely honest i've had mine on for I think 2.5 maybe 3 years? It hasn't done anything to me (it does to some people.) You can choose your battles, the light is annoying but for alot of people it does nothing. For some people it makes your vehicle completely inoperable. I for one am waiting for the day when there is an important job opportunity and the car won't start


*disconnecting the battery will do nothing, it's not related to the emissions system that is reset by the battery.

My light had never turned on before, then all of a sudden after changing out the rear axle tube bearings, the light came on and the car never started. I bypassed the whole system at the body control module with a kit I bought online.

No it doesn't. I have two sets of keys, both with that security chip in the center. I have started the car with both sets of keys, problem still persists.

Security lights can be an excellent way of protecting your home from potential intruders. However, they’re excellent as long as they're working but when they develop problems they’re obviously not so appealing. You need to be able to troubleshoot problems with security lights, especially as some of them can be fixed without calling in an electrician.

Lights Stay On

Motion sensor security lights are meant to come on only when they detect motion, but sometimes they can remain on all the time. The general reason for this is usually a spike in current, although you may have to deal with a recurring problem if that’s not the case.

The best course of action is to see first if something has changed. It could be that something is constantly moving in front of the sensor on the security lights. If not, try turning the lights off at the breaker for around 20 seconds. Confirm visually that the security lights have gone off and then turn the breaker back on. The light...

Hello everybody, I'm from Brazil and my ipod was bought in USA by my brother, who gave me as a travel gift. When this problem started, I tought where I could fix it, then I tried to update the software to 1.2, but it didn't work out. I realized the problem always happenned when I was at the gym, running or doing abs, I mean, doing abruptly moves. I thought it was something related to the earphones, but it wasn't , then I found out this topic here.

I tried to do somtehing a few minutes ago: Go to Settings>Fitness>Spoken Feedback>Off.

Many people here related the problem as happening when running or at the gym, the same as mine, so I guess the Fitness app might influencing on it. Go there and disable the Spoken function, that might be as Female voice by default, and turn it off.

Let's try this and post some result. Hope that helps us...

Windows Defender Antivirus helps protect your PC against malware (malicious software) like viruses, spyware, and other potentially unwanted software. Malware can infect your PC without your knowledge: it might install itself from an email message, when you connect to the Internet, or when you install certain apps using a USB flash drive, CD, DVD, or other removable media. Some malware can also be programmed to run at unexpected times, not only when it's installed.

Windows Defender is included with Windows and helps keep malware from infecting your PC in two ways:

Providing real-time protection. Windows Defender notifies you when malware tries to install itself or run on your PC. It also notifies you when apps try to change important settings.Providing anytime scanning options. Windows Defender automatically scans your PC for installed malware on a regular basis, but you can also start a scan whenever you want. Windows Defender automatically removes (or...
