Can anyone recommend an Outdoor Motion Sensor?

Hi,

I have a new outside light to install but it has no motion sensor, I'd prefer it to not be on all the time and would like a compact sensor I can install remotely to the light which may also be able to trigger other security systems like a chime.

Anybody done similar? Ive been looking at sensors but most are quite ugly and stand out a mile.

Any help much appreciated.

Can't you just get the Mrs stay standing by the window, so she can turn it on when she sees someone?

Daft bugger, unfortunately way things are at mo it would be me on guard.

On to the topic at hand...

I found these, wondered if they may suffice.

With

Seems workable
