    sorry buddy...the IR sensor output won't be powerful enuf, this is my guess.
    since you don't have the spec of the sensor, don't connect it.
    You'll need to measure the out put of the sensor for DC voltage levels when it is switching state. And after that we can tell you how you can go about it.
    Still an transistor driver stage at the out put is advisable.

    To reinforce the comments by R!f@@:

    If the PIR sensor module is like most, you will need some additional circuitry that is triggered by the "motion detected" output signal provided by the PIR module to switch a relay, transistor, or MOSFET to apply power to the lamp.

    Your post of the link to the datasheet for the PIR sensor you are using seems to be missing.

    Sure, why not, just send parts you have, excluding battery, and what final product should do or look like, no charge, except for additional parts. You have my e-mail?

    Hmm!! circuit can be quite simple. I can build it with no parts supplied if you agree.
    I think I have to post it to you via USPS. What is the dead line for this.
    If you want me to build it, tell me do you need to light to remain on after first pulse received, cause the data sheet says output is a pulse, which means light will be on for like 0.5 secs. The circuit can be made to latch after first pulse and switch after the second pulse.
    Price want be that much but I have to check the postage to your door step.
    What say you.

    Sounds great, can't wait to put them in and fire them up. You said the light will stay on for 20 sec correct? Did you recieve the third ir sensor from 123? Thanks again.

    Third unit , with out-board 5 V regulator for PIR on the way. With 12 V battery, switching off one A light caused PIR to re-trigger, hence V reg.
