Found a decent deal at habitat. I bought another motion detector unit and studied the diagram.. Came up with this. Is this the proper wiring setup for a motion detector?

Sure anon, why not.

if it's your intention to apply power between the black/red bunch and the white bunch, then that is definitely not the correct way. you have to consider that the sensor part is a switch, so it has a black and white for power, then a switched red to power the bulb.

so the red from the sensor should go to the black from the lamp, and only only there. the neutral whites are OK as is. anyway, this is my recollection from wiring one a year or so ago, so i'm not 100% sure.

just checked my spare and that's 100% right.

black and white to the sensor head should be connected to the house power. the white from the lamp head also to the house power. the black from the lamp goes to the red from the sensor head. and all green go to earth ground.

i used to work for a company that made security lights
