I need a motion detector+switch or relay where the detector can be installed 40 feet from the relay switch and power source. I want to control about 500 watts of lights. The motion detector must "view" 180 degrees. I find only a Heath/Zenith detector with a range of 110 degrees and wire to the relay which is only 4 feet long. Thanks for any suggestions.

Motion detector heads can be purchased that come without flood sockets for remote mounting. I don't know of any that have such a wide field of view, so you will need two of them wired in parallel to cover the area you want. Follow the wiring diagrams that come with the units.
