After the lamp was turned on by an x10 command,
will the Pr511 still detect motion by sending ON commands during motion detection and sent an OFF command after the delay with no motion?

For example:
1. PR511 house code is A and unit code is 1.
2. Sensor +1 switch is sent to IN, all other sensor and dusk switches are set to OUT.
3. A1 ON command is sent to turn on the lights.  The light may be off or on because it detected a motion.
4. Will the Pr511 still detect motion by sending ON commands on A2 while it detects motion and sent an OFF command after the delay with no motion?

The Flood light motion sensor sends a on command once when motion is detected and only after the delay and no motion will it send the off command! ;)
Once the off command is sent it will resend an On command when fresh\new motion is detected! ;)

Thanks,

It will do this no matter if I turn the light on using x10 commands, Correct?
It this case, it will send the off commend (A2 OFF, in my example ) after the delay with no motion, but the light will remain ON because I sent an X10 ON (A1 ON) to the light, correct?

Yes!
The flood will remain on but the devices which are triggered from it will turn off after the delay!

Thanks,

I asked because I am presently using RF motion sensors for some fancy smart macros.  I was thinking of using PR511s because wired is better then RF and I don't have to remember to replace the batteries.

I'm been able to improve the RF after reading several posts but I still have to remember to replace the batteries.   ;D

The PR511 is a handy piece of hardware I'm very pleased with the way mine works! It even gained me some much needed WAF  rofl
