I’d like to use some type of sensor, e.g., proximity or broken-beam, at the top step of the first staircase, and another one at the bottom step of the second staircase so that when I am at the first sensor (either top or bottom), the LED’s would automatically turn on, and then turn off when I reached the second sensor. Essentially, I want the pair of sensors to act as “automatic” 3-way switches to turn on or off 115 VAC to the LED’s power supply (transformer or voltage driver).
Some sensor-switch company help desks I spoke with, told me turning the LED’s on wasn’t an issue, but that the best I could do would be to have the LED’s turn off via a time-out by using an occupancy & vacancy sensor at one location and a remote 3-way switch at the other.
Does anyone know how I can accomplish this the way I’d like to, and if so, what gear: sensors, switches, electronic relays, etc. would I need.
