I want to put a couple of these lights on my garage. It appears that whoever
designed this structure planned for some such: in addition to switched
floods, there are some blocked-off boxes on the outside wall.
The problem is that all the motion-sensor lights I've seen for sale are
built on round bases, and the wall boxes are duplex outlet-sized - the
mismatch would let rain in. I haven't found an adapter plate or box at any
local hardware stores. As a last resort, I thought of remounting the lamps
and senor on a three-hole duplex-sized outdoor cover - but there isn't room
between the holes.
Any suggestions? Thanks very much!
In case anyone's interested... My local electrical supply shop had a flyer
for RAB EZPlate. They ordered a box of them, and it turned out to be perfect
for me. Well-made, four holes plus center hole (all pluggable), lots of
space, same price as a regular 3-hole plate.
Thanks for all suggestions, on- and off-list.
