A few years ago I attached a motion detector device, supposedly for use outdoors, to a low wattage light in my kitchen.

Is it just me, or does that thing look like it's about to leap off the cupboard and dig its claws into the top of someone's skull?

If I didnt have so many projects on the go already, I could turn it into an evil cyclops robot, steam powered of course.

Looks like you need one for the hallway.   

Thank you, but not even remotely do I need that. I live with three active cats, such a set up would pretty much be a complicated, and in my opinon, unattractive way of having a small light burn all the time.

I don't need one outdoors to help me fit my key in the lock, either. They drive me batty at my father's place, flooding his front porch with light every time a neighborhood cat or a racoon wanders by. It's not so much that they're bright, it's that if I am awake enough to notice it go on, I am awake enough to be burning with curiousity as to why.
