    Crappers.
    I went to place the order but they don't ship to Canada
    Where's that "crying" emoticon?

    I will have to order one and give it a try.
    When you get it setup let us know how it works.

    I built my own with a set of lights and motion sensor and a separate Qubino micro switch buried in the wire box. It worked fine for almost a year.

    Now, if the unit is on from being turned on manually, it shuts off when the motion sensor senses motion. Not good. I'm not saying yours will do this, I have to reset mine, but have to wait until the snow melts. Again.

    Don't forget to look at the other 3 they have!

    Not looking for another X-10 unit, but rather, a Z-wave equivalent type of device.
    The X-10 signals are just far too unreliable (and one-way) for me know that I've experienced the reliability and enhanced usability of Z-wave devices.
    Understood, I have used a regular outdoor motion sensor with a z-wave relay inside the fixture with one of the bulbs below for motion.

    You might be able to use this dry contact relay to control power to it. USA top, Canada bottom

    If you don't mind used with a warranty there is this on ebay.

    started a topic My country for a Z-wave equivalent of an X-10 PR511!

    My country for a Z-wave equivalent of an X-10 PR511!

    I've been a looooong time user of X-10 (since the early 80s!) and now well into Z-wave devices.
    But I still haven't been able to find a decent replacement for the old PR511 outdoor motion detector/floodlight combination.

    While I could replace it with a regular floodlight on a Z-wave switch and install a (sheltered) indoor Z-wave motion detector and tie them via HS events, it's not ideal *and* the combined cost of the 3 components becomes a constraint, especially when several locations are involved.

    Does anyone know of a comparable Z-wave product to replace the X-10 PR511?
