Hello . Hopefully this will make sense, so bare with me!

I am planning to install 12 lights on my stairs. Unfortunately the driver for them only has 6 connections so I will need 2 drivers meaning 2 wall sockets. I was planning to get a smart plug from IKEA and use their motion sensor, one for the bottom and one for the top of the stairs. Because I will need 2 smart plugs, will that mean I will need 2 sensors at the top and 2 sensors at the bottom of the stairs? Seems a bit overkill so hoping there is a simpler solution. Thanks in advance
