I picked what I thought was a very fine brand of motion sensor, but the units are lasting only a few months. It's a 3-wire sensor: always-hot and neutral power the sensor, and switched-hot is passed through. As I read the documentation, I see them mention "Tungsten". I am driving LED "barn light" type products.
I could install one incandescent bulb to make the sensor happy. But when it burns out, it won't be quickly replaced, which would create the failure condition. So I want something that emulates a tungsten bulb, but is long-lasting. I'm thinking a resistor.
The question is, how do I find a resistor product that mounts on an electrical box it in a code-legal way, and is outdoors-safe? Is that even a product one could find? I'm not asking "shop for me" but I don't even know where to begin.
