This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEP curriculum.  Completing this BB is part of getting the sand badge in Electricity.

In this Badge Bit, you will replace a flood light with a motion detector flood lamp. (Note that this BB is part of a 1-part choose your own adventure list BB called the Tiny List. You must complete one Badge Bit in the Tiny List.)

The old motion detector light was destroyed during the snow storm of 2019. The porch overhang collapsed.   I have had the replacement for months. This was the perfect time to do the install and hopefully get credit on my first submission of a PEP BB. If there is any additional information needed let me know.
