Motion Detector Madness

This posting is paen to a technology I have been using in a big way: motion detectors. There are two floodlights in a tree at the end of our driveway connected to a motion detector so we can drive up in pitch dark, park the car and find our way to the house....

There are two separate floodlights connected to motion detectors on the deck that wraps around our house, so that once you've navigated from the driveway in the pitch dark you can find your way inside....

There's a First Alert SensorPlug Motion Sensor Outlet Plug  in our loft so that a light turns on as you enter the stairs leading to the loft.  And a Zen Light LED Motion Detector  for the hallway that leads to that loft is on order.

And, of course, there's a Mr. Beams Wireless LED Spotlight with Motion Detector  in the outdoor shed.  This one uses 3 "D" batteries (and LEDs have a very low current drain, so they'll last a long time) and can thus be used where there's no A/C power (like my shed).

Motion detector madness yes, but cheaper and easier than wiring and drilling.  And... using a flashlight to find my way from the car to the house in the pitch dark here in the deep woods of the Rensselaer Plateau!
