NO! Motion sensors purchased at hardware stores and other such triggers designed for 110v / 120v AC will destroy the PicoBoo and BooBox controllers. Use only 12vDC triggers with the PicoBoo as well as the BooBox line of controllers.
Unfortunately, if you have already hooked a 110v / 120v AC trigger to the PicoBoo inputs you have fried the device to such a degree that it cannot be repaired.
