2 motion sensor lights on one switch.

I have recently installed 2 motion sensor lights,
one with floods, and one over a front door.
The one over the front door has instructions that
say it can be wired to another motion sensor light
using an additional "red wire" to the black wire.
Both motion sensor lights are connected to a common
light switch. One is supposed to be "master" and one
is "slave". The problem is, I can't get the "master"
to work! It stays on all the time. The flood light
sensor works fine. Both lights have separate motion
sensors. They are both set to one minute time-on.
If I disconnect the "red wire", the flood motion
sensor does not work. They both require 1 1/2 minutes
to "calibrate". They are made by Heath and Heath/Zenith.
What am I doing wrong?
