So I am a bit out of my league on this so I am looking for help. I went to HD and bought a few things:
- Sprinkler Valve - Rain Bird
- 745407 Motion Detector (Used to turn on lights)
- 110vac 60Hz 23W to 24VAC 750 mA class 2 power supply
- indoor outdoor cord
I cut the cord and hooked it to the feed into the motion detector and then the used the female plug and hooked it up to the motion out wires. The thing is if I hook a LED light to the plug the motion works great and turns on the light. But, it seems that it is not enough juice to turn on the power supply. I really did not think the power would be downgraded going through the motion detector but it seems like it must be.
I am trying to build my own motion activated sprinkler to scare off ducks from the dock. Any one has any idea on the correct parts needed to make this happen would be wonderful. They make them but they are cheap and don't last. I was hoping to build one that would last and be 110 volt so no batteries would be needed.
