Adding Motion Sensor to coach lights


Hopefully this is an easy one. I would like to ask your advise on adding a motion sensor (combo with a light sensor) to existing coach lights. I can get at the wires in between the light switch and the first light in the string. I think I can wire it fairly easily but I don't know where to find the right sensors and mounting brackets to make the job look professional, while keeping it low cost enough not to justify getting new coach lights with the feature built-in.

So maybe a $50-ish budget is in the right ballpark park for the sensors and mounting brackets. I've seen some of the sensors offered at the hardware stores as replacements but no one has a mounting bracket. I'm thinking of mounting where the freeze board meets the eve.
