with the parallel (or however its spelled) board and the right software, can you set it up with a motion sensor so that when it senses electricity in lets say relay 1 it will start a program the will run the other seven relays?

and if not is there a way to make a motion sensor for it. I just want it to start things up when triggered

what kind of motion sensor should i use? i have a motion switch that i got a while ago for this kind of stuff. its main use is for lights. its one of those you can replace a regular light switch with.

Run the leads that would normally go to the light socket to the coil terminals of a 110 VAC coil relay from Radio Shack. That way the motion sensor will activate the relay. Run two extra wires from the N/O (normally open) relay contacts back to the parallel port pins.

Just make sure to insulate the coil terminal connections well (heat shrink tubing or tape or silicon) so you don't feed 110 VAC back to the parallel port.
any diagrams or pictures you could show me?
