I currently have 4 fixtures, 2 recessed above the garage and 2 enclosed lamps near the front door. They're controlled by a switch that has a builtin timer. I'd like these lights to come on around sunset and go off at a reasonable time (like 11pm).
But I'd also like them to come on when motion is detected. So if someone were to approach the house after the scheduled period ends, I want the lights to come back on.
I'm struggling to figure out how one might do this. At the very least I'd need a few motion sensors, but how would that work? Do the motion sensors act as a 3 way switch?
Or is this not possible and the only way to pull off a similar effect is to have separate motion activated lights? (Probably easier but not as pleasing to the eye)
