    PIR sensors react to a change in the "image" they can see. A person walking across the sensor's field of view will create a bigger reaction than a person walking towards the sensor.

    Hence if the person is going to be walking towards the light then having the PIR remote from the lamp will give better results.

    So I am finding out, thinking about just picking a light I like and adding a smart relay to control it and leaving the security aspect to the led flood further back off the house.
    Thanks
