Some post-episode 1 photos of the modified motion detector

Episode 1! Modify a motion detecting security light thing to stay on for a longer or shorter period than it’s designed for. This is useful if you want to turn something like a light, fan, etc on for a specific amount of time when motion is detected, but the factory settings don’t allow it. This shows a specific brand/model but I suspect they mostly work in a similar way - using a resistor/capacitor combination to determine the amount of time that the light (or whatever you connect to it) should stay on after detecting motion. What’s shown in the video shouldn’t involve any high voltages (especially if it’s unplugged!) but anything can be dangerous if care isn’t taken.
