    I am sitting a room with the sensor lights on the ceiling, but the sensor device is at the door and far away from my desk. Every 15 mins, I have to go to the door to reactivate the sensor, otherwise the lights will automatically turn off while sitting in the room.

    If I install a photocell LED in front of sensor device and wire to my desk, then I turn on LED switch right at my desk every 15min to activate the sensor device instead of taking a walk by the door. I am not sure does it make sense or not?

    Please give me your advice.

    You can install a regular on/off switch.
