Outdoor motion detector lights use passive infrared technology (PIR). When a movement in the detection range of the sensor, activates an electric circuit comprising the electronic apparatus connected to this. Motion sensors are part of some devices such as external lights. However, you can create your own motion sensor in certain objects, such as a strip of Outdoor motion detector lights using a motion sensor with built-in plug. You can buy it at hardware centers selling items for the home and retail stores. You can even find it in large supermarkets.

Plug it into a common outlet. Check the label of the motion sensor for the detection range. Check that the detection range covers the area where you want to activate motion lights strips. If the common outlet is near the desired detection zone, connect a heavy duty extension cord to the common outlet and take it to the detection zone. Connect the motion sensor to the extension. Many outdoor motion detector lights with plug grounding needed, so make sure that the extension is grounded. A grounded extension cord has three legs instead of two.
Firmly connect a string of lights on the motion sensor plug. Turn the motion sensor. Try setting your hand waving in front of the motion sensor. If the lights come on, everything is configured correctly. Turn the sensor again. Hang the strip lights where you want. If you put the outdoor lights, motion sensor protects and extension moisture. You can use plastic bags and waterproof tape to wrap the material, but do not hide the sensor motion sensor. Turn your outdoor motion detector lights again and try once more to make sure it is properly configured.
