Multi Motion Flood Light System


I am looking to set up a custom made outdoor motion activated security/flood light system. This will be installed around my house and yard. I would like to be able to have multiple lights and motion sensors in different locations. But I need all of the light to turn on at the same time if ANY of the motion sensors are triggered.

Can anyone give me an idea on how to achieve this? I am not looking for a pre build system as I would like to use my own custom lights.

Rab stealth motion sensors are rated for parallel connections. Use a three wire cable (with ground) between fixtures and sensors (use red conductor as the load wire on sensors and to feed lights. Just watch your maximum wattage of the circuit.

It would be wired the same as a hard wired smoke detector I believe.
