Hi Patrick,

Ensure your sensor has quality alkaline batteries installed such as Rayovac or Energizer; avoid heavy duty or rechargeable batteries.  Also, please check to see if the aspirating fan is operating when sunlight hits the solar panel(s); you should hear a faint humming sound.  If you continue to experience the malfunction, please contact our Customer Support Center at 844-228-5465 for further assistance.
