Compare the different models and styles of motion-sensor light sockets. Look at your needs, such as the kind of light bulb to be used, the wattage required and the distance from the light that it detects motion. Since the sensor is attached to the screw-in socket, you can make any light a motion sensor.
Purchase the correct light bulb,making sure the wattage will work with the sensor.
Screw the light bulb into the socket and then screw the motion-activated socket into the fixture.
