Putting 2 Motion Sensors Together


I have a motion sensor controlling a light that is about 50ft away. It is a simple sensor that swivels and mounts to an exterior box cover. Though it has a 240 degree range, I would like it to sense from more area. My question is can I connect an additional sensor to the box to accomplish this? (THe box cover has a removeable KO to do so.) --And if so how would I wire it? My existing sensor has Blk, Wht and Red wires.
Thanks in advance.

I think you would have no problem althohg I have not tried it.

For a second sensor of the same kind as the first, connect the two sensors black to black, red to red, and white to white. This connects the sensors in parallel so either of them will turn on the light.
