I am a little confused by your question. Please see the different modes below, hopefully, this helps. If the light is physically turned off it will remain off. If the light is turned on you can choose one of the modes below and it will work as you have asked it to night after night.
Mode A: Light is set to remain at low brightness
Mode B: Light is set to remain at low brightness until motion is detected which activates mid
brightness for up to 25 seconds
Mode C: Light is only set to activate when motion is detected [This is the best mode for Winter]
