    Want to know what kind of motion sensors lighting you use on your homes? Name/brand/type etc etc.

    Looking to buy some this week. I want quality but not something that breaks the bank.

    Also how long do you set your lights to stay on once movement has been detected?

    Any other advice is greatly appreciated on implementation or stratagies? Thanks.

    I use the ones from Home Depot. They replace your light switch.
    There is a manual mode.
    You can set it for about 15 seconds to about 45 minutes.
    It is also light adjustable, so you can have it come on even in daylight.
    Easy to install. Set up takes a little bit of time as the timer function and light function are a small 'dial' you rotate, so there is no markings as to time/ light.
    You can get differant degrees; there is 180%, and a 120%. I just get the 180.
    Have them installed in the hallway, and garage (two places).
    Never had a problem with them
