Motion Sensor Multi Plug
Hey I have been thinking of trying to construct a easy plug in system to use for my entertainment center. I am not sure if the idea can work from an electrical stand or not, but here it is...

I want to connect a motion sensor to a surge protector (or something alike). The motion sensor would have to be able to hold the load of at least a small multi surge plug, enough to plug in at least 3 plugs (tv, game system, and system receiver). I would like to place the sensor by the tv, and the surge outlets connected with a longer cord in order to hide all the plugs in the back.

Is this possible? I feel like it should be, if there is not already something very similar to this already, please recommend ideas/help, thanks!

What is your purpose? I hate those motion detector lights that go off when you are sitting quietly. You have to jump up and wave your arms to get them to turn on.....

Man, I must be in a bad mood tonight.

I would just like to have a motion detector to use along with my entertainment area. I want to set it up so that at night (or whenever people weren't moving around the room) the surge protector would be turned off so that there would be no vampire power being drawn from the electronics (tv, receiver, game system, etc.)
