[How-Do-I] Rewire / Automate Front Door Light
« on: April 28, 2007, 02:09:27 PM »

I have an idea to rewire my front door light. Currently the light turns on and off according to a wall timer. I'm looking to buy a timer with two zones or switches.

For example:

  • 1.) First Zone at 7 p.m. will activate dusk/dawn sensor,and if it is dark enough the light will come on.

  • 2.) At 12 a.m. First Zone turns off and Second Zone turns on to activate a motion sensor until 4 a.m.

I searched the web for such a timer, but couldn't find one. Any Ideas, will be very appreciated.

Thanks
Jacob

...I searched the web for such a timer, but couldn't find one. Any Ideas, will be very appreciated.

  • PR511 PhotoFlood: 1 (to detect Dusk/Dawn & Motion)
  • WS467 Wall Switch: 1 or more (to control lights, independent of PR511 Internal Relay, but according to AH/AHP logic)
  • CM11A/AH (@ $10) or CM15A/AHP (@ $50): 1 (to contain logic)


...For example:

  • 1.) First Zone at 7 p.m. will activate dusk/dawn sensor,and if it is dark enough the light will come on.

  • 2.) At 12 a.m. First Zone turns off and Second Zone turns on to activate a motion sensor until 4 a.m.
