adjust motion sensor light...

presently, my motion sensor security light will go on (detect movement and switch on) both during the day and the night. I would like to know how to adjust it so that it will go on only from dusk to dawn.
it has two knobs : one for sensitivity and the other one light-dark. i played with the latter one but it does not seem to make any difference...

If you turned the light-dark knob all the way to the dark setting, and it still comes on during daylight, it's defective

Some have electric eyes, some don't, to not come on in the day, it must have this feature. I accidentally bought a couple with out the electric eye, I put them in my shop, they come on in the daytime, but I don't mind the extra light there,and it sure beats stumbling around when you go in there at night. Another good place is a well house, maybe even a big closet, with appropriate bulbs.
