    I bought 3 Passive Infrared Sensors and I need (easy to understand) instructions or help to wire it up. I believe the kit is made to work with 120vac household. I want to gut the sensor and system to put in a small space in a piece of art. Any help would be appreciated. Please be willing to be patient I am a newbie when it comes to wiring and circuits.

    Hello,

    What should happen with the lights when the sensor is active ?
    Do you have the schematics of the sensor or only a connection plan / manual ?
    With the schematics we can adapt it to your needs.

    Greetings,

    Just a little background: Thread " Need help cannibalizing ...." by pbalien73; page 11, " Unless you can buy a ready made one ..." eblc1388. I takeit you have 3 Quorum RR-150[160] and should have received op. instructions.If so I would suggest you keep the units intact and mount them upstream from display a short distance. Check page 26& 27 for diagram on how to operate from 12V & drive a 12V bulb. I would just use 9V battery for present,keep it simple as possible.
