Best deal on a motion sensor

Post by sherab » Sat Feb 03, 2007 7:00 pm

Hey folks!
Anyone have any advice on where the best deal might be for a plugin motion sensor?
As I am getting older I am starting to dislike my retinas burning at 3am when running to the bathroom and I have to turn on the lights (you young kids! this is what you get to look forward to! :lol: )

Just want to turn on some ambient low lighting when I enter the room, maybe a string of LED Xmas lights. I know there are X10 units but what I am after is a simple plug in that activates the socket when motion is sensed.

Many thanks in advance.

Right now I use several cheap motion sensors that DO have some adjustability built in. [time and range]

When I get up for the toilet or the kitchen, they have been set “not to go off" unless I come very close or wave my arms.

[The Bathroom is a drive by that always goes off]

Dogs set off the kitchen sensor but I turn the bed room sensor [and mask it] sideways and up high,..... to stop the bed room from always going off.

Hay Sharah, Saw you post. I am doing the same here because mom and dad scare me that they are going to fall because of one wrong step around here. The responds I read still didn't answer your question to me well "where to get a good cheap motion sensor" to me $20.00 to 40.00 a pop is a bit high for motion sensors. If you are not in a hurry, Give me a week send me a private EM to remind me and I'll Let you know what I am coming up with. Also let me know how far you willing to go wit it to save some bucks on it. God Bless DC :grin:
Greetings and Salutations to all !!!
