Well that is a great idea. I will be interested if someone did something similar.
Possibly with solar lights?
If I were to do this now, I would use smart devices like the Shelly 1PM.
I will be using one along with a driveway sensor to switch on an outdoor light between sunset and sunrise, in addition to the current activation of a buzzer to alert us to anyone entering the property. Because it's all done in software, multiple sensors can activate one light, or in our case, one sensor can perform multiple actions.
