    Thinking about adding some security lighting to my drive. It’s an in and out jobbie so obviously has 2 entrances, is about 18m wide and 10m deep.

    My idea is 2 lights linked up so both come on at time of activation for good coverage. I’m unsure if I could get away with a single sensor positioned centrally or would need 2 to cover both entrances.

    This also leads me on to sensors. PIR or microwave? The latter seems more modern but detects movement as opposed to heat. Would my plants in the wind trigger this?

    recommendations and thoughts appreciated.
