This circuit is connected with the brake pedal – if the switch is out of place or connected incorrectly then the pedal may not be able to complete the circuit correctly.

How are lighting controls used in the real world?

Traditionally, control zoning and future rezoning was limited by lighting circuit wiring. Advances in communications enable relatively economical zoning as granular as individual luminaires or ballasts/drivers, and zoning and rezoning using software instead of hardwiring.

What should I do if my motion detector light is not working?

This part will either need a replacement or it could simply be dirty. The motion sensor, which triggers the light, should be cleaned regularly to avoid it becoming clogged.
