The old motion detector light was destroyed during the snow storm of 2019. The porch overhang collapsed.   I have had the replacement for months. This was the perfect time to do the install and hopefully get credit on my first submission of a PEP BB. If there is any additional information needed let me know.

Got to take one down and install it for a customer a couple of days back. Slow but steady progress trying to remember all the electricity BBs since I'm always under pressure from the clock.
