That's why I make the floodlights come on when the garage door opens, and it's dark outside. Since the garage door opener has a long range, it actually works much better than a motion sensor.Michael McSharry said:I have done this with a UPB UMI, motion sensor and a PC. While functional there is a noticable difference on local control. With X10 Floodlights the light comes on immediatey on motion detected, but with the UPB motion in, processor, UPB relay out transaction it adds a second. Not a problem when walking, but when a car is moving there is quite a bit of distance covered by the car before the light comes on.
Turns out that those are the ones I purchased... I have Optex for all my interior PIRs. I haven't installed these yet to know how well they work...AutomatedOutlet said:
