Hi all,

Trying to wire in some lights in the garden in multiple positions but all activated by one microwave sensor at the top of the garden.
I cannot wire the lights straight to the sensor as landscaping ECT and I do not want them on independent sensors either.
So I'm looking for a transmitor to wire in next to the sensor at the top and a receiver at each light (3 at the moment) down the bottom.
Can anyone recommend anything I could use? I have Wi-Fi in the garden but all the transmitter receivers I can find are rf handheld.

I am an electrician so advice on an alternative way is not required.

Cheers

Just to clarify, I have perminent power to the sensor at the top and the lights at the bottom but no cable in-between for switching.

I have some already installed to use with my phone but do they do wired transmitter and receiver separate?

I would go for a binary input module(BIM) connected to the MW sensor..
RF receiver can then be located at each light fitting and synced to the rf BIM

Thanks Charlie
Could you point me in the direction of one of these BIM transmitter and receivers as I cannot find what you've suggested?
