    Would like to have two lighting sectors in my yard which are controlled by motion sensors ultimately controlled by an indoor switch. This would be like a 120V flood light which works off of a switched motion sensor where it can be: a) on motion sensing; b) always on; or c) always off.

    Can this be done with low voltage sensor of some type? Or best to have a motion sensor between the 120 supply and the transformer?

    Thanks

    Hi, Carl. If I understand you, you want two different motion sensor-controlled light zones which you can enable or disable from an interior light switch. If that’s the case, I believe you can accomplish that most efficiently with the products below. I’m assuming you already have an outdoor outlet which is controlled by an indoor switch.

    Thanks for the info Mesodude2. And yes I do have the interior switch. This just might work.
