I have a 2420 motion sensor in the driveway which is to far from the access point to activate the driveway lights.
I can mount a motion sensor closer to the house, but then someone has to drive/walk half way down the driveway before the house/driveway lights come on.
I have no way to power an access point farther up the driveway away from the house.
Is there a battery operated wireless bridge or any other way to extend the range of the motion sensor?

I was hoping for a cheap solution, but perhaps this is the cheap solution.
Too bad that Dakota motion sensor is like a giant brick.
