Check out ABT (advanced bridging technologies) as they just came out with a wireless motion sensor. You can also look at the dominator by Nighscaping. Hope this helps.

You could hire me. I will just stand back in the shadows by the house, cleverly concealed by some bushes or trees. When I see movement I can turn my flashlight on the moving object. This is 'Smart' technology! Well.....maybe not!

Craig, do you know if the motion sensor controls one fixture or a whole transformer, maybe something in between?

I think that Hydrovation has one.........12v motion sensor..........

Dreams It all comes down to how many watts the sensor can handle. If its a 300 watt trans and a 300 watt sensor then your good to go. But the only times I can see them being used are for 1 or 2 down lights along a trail. After Tim's comments on abt Im a little worried about installing their products. Also on a sidenote. Dreams would you like to meet up and have lunch this winter?

I went to ABT's website and could not find info on the motion sensor

RAB makes a 12V motion sensor, but it is only rated to 75W or so.

ABT introduced a Motion Sensor for landscape lighting at the IA show. The Product senses motion and turns on lights connected to a ABT ZoneControl unit. Product will be available end of Dec early Jan.

Give me a call if you have questions.

Perhaps you should review the search feature. It seems that those of us that have used ABT are having regrets already.

ABT's motion control has the ability to control a single zone up to 300 Watts, or you can choose for it to control all three zones (900 Watts). The motion control can be programed to keep the lights on anywhere between 5 and 60 min. The motion sensor is completely wireless, and it communicates to a receiver connected to the low voltage side of the transformer.
