I have a ceiling mounted front porch 6 sided polygon shaped light
fixture with a single lamp. The sides contain glass and the lamp is
recessed behind the glass. I want to add a motion sensor and tried a 360
degree screw in sensor but it didn't work since it was behind the glass.
Other than replacing the fixture with a motion sensing unit, anyone know
of a screw in/add on adapter that will work with this fixture?
Here's one solution:
It's a Heath/Zenith add-on unit. Sensor can be mounted within a few
feet of fixture with the controller itself fitting inside the mounting
box for the fixture. There are others but can't put my finger on them
right now. Have used the Zenith product in the past and it's fine.
Were I you, I'd check around a bit and see if I couldn't beat MSC's
price of $34
Take a look at
(Amazon.com product link shortened)
If you can run it's wire out of the fixture to the sensor.
OR with the sensor you have, could you remove 1 or 2 of the side glass
panes to allow it to operate ?
