I am on my second set of motion sensor lights on my detached garage. The first 
set (turned out to be) was an elcheapo $25 buy from costco. It lasted about 3/4 
of a year before the sensor stopped working: motion would set the lights off 
but then they would not shut off. Now I have a set working from ACE. The retail 
cost was about $55. This set seems to be working fine. 

My problem is when it is windy. Both sets have acted the same in the wind: 
Pretty much no matter the wind speed, they get (got) set off. I have the 
current fixture on the least sensitive setting and it still just "flashes" all 
night with the wind. 

Is there anything I can do? 

I would be more than happy to send pics to any one who might be able to help if 
they thought seeing the set up would help.
