Hi there,

I am looking for a wireless motion detector that will turn a spot/flood light on.

The issue is that there is about 10-15 meters between the place I want to install the motion detector and the floodlight itself. I know I can run a cable between the two but want to avoid digging trenches as it is mostly rock. 

I haven't been able to find anything but hope someone might know of something.

Cheers

Mike

I think the translation got a bit mixed up. Hopefully this is clearer:

I want a wireless motion detector so as to avoid using a cable. If i use a cable I will have to dig a trench to hide the cable. The problem is the ground is rock and will be a mission to dig.

The wireless motion detector must be able to talk to the spot/flood light and switch it on when movement is detected.

Cheers

The item you are looking for does exist, but they appear to be a) expensive, and b) mainly designed for Alarm systems as opposed to triggering lights.,
