Im installing motion detector lights... the only thing is i want them switch activated too, so that the motion works and I can turn them on also. Which type of wire should I use? Any ideas?

Most can be activated by simply turning the switch off and back on quick. When you want to change it back to auto just shut off the power and wait 30 sec. and power it back up.

14-2 if it's a 15A circuit, 12-2 if it's a 20A circuit.
