VMB7IN and Motion Detectors


One of the use cases specified in the datasheet of the VMB7IN module is: “connect the motion detector of your driveway and switch on the garden lighting for 2 minutes”.

Which kind of motion sensors are suitable for this use case?
I looked at some Niko motion sensors, but it seems they are all switching a 230V powered lamp, and I don’t really see how they can be connected to a VMB7IN module…

You can use most alarm sensors for this with a NO output. These normally have a dry contact and are fed also with 12 Volts.
