Quoted from Pintucky:
I need that badly in my game room. If you don't mind, once you figure out where to buy the motion detector (and anything else you are kind enough to tell me about), I wish you would post it here.
Good luck with that project. I'm EXCITED!!!

Will do. I have a few motion detectors in mind. One is low voltage (maybe just to trigger a relay) that is also sound activated - typically used in automated lighted conference rooms. No motion, but people talking keep the lights on. In my case, the pinball machine noises will keep the lights on too.
I'll probably start a new "I'm building a game room" thread to document the progress and ask for some advice as I go, as others have done. Mine will take a few years to complete, as it will likely just be a every other weekend work. I'll start the thread with a 3D CAD walk through video of my general new game room layout. I just have to add more pinball machine models in my old 3D CAD layout as I bought more pins ... and might as well plan on adding 1 or 2 more. You know ... planning ahead for pins my wife wants. Ya, that's it.
