2.3. Motion Detection

The light switch is an admirable user interface. It's simple, requiring only the flick of a finger, and everyone knows how to use it. But motion detectors are even simpler, because they provide an entirely passive user interface. To control something via a motion detector, all you have to do is be present. In this phase of the project, you'll install a motion detector that connects to your X10 power network.
