The discussion of the Alien series of films and the props used in them is the aim, but if it's got Big Bugs and Big Guns, then they are welcome too!

Great part! Will you keep the battery holder to power your lamp with?

I think I just may.

As you can see it takes 6 AA batteries.
This is the same black battery holder found at any
"Radio Shack".

You can also see that there is a blue 9v connector snapped into it.
(also the same as the RS holder)

Sooo... I believe it can be powered by either source.

But, I'm not sure if 9volts is enough to power the Reflecta lamp (?)

Hi TS

Nice find, I'm very jealous.

The Reflecta lamp is mains powered (or the one I got was anyway) so you will need to change the bulb. I used a 12v Halogen bulb but you could put anyone that you like in so the voltage shouldn't be an issue.

The SU lamp has plastic covering the ID sticker and screw.

So to make it 100% accurate you would have to cover those up.

I had to check this out on mine as I didn't remember that screw being present at all.

WHooo Hooo!

Ask Rex would say.

I got mine today finally!

It took 2+ months and worrying that my money

was flushed down the toilet until now....

Very cool.

I was rooting for a good outcome.
Glad to see that it finally happened.

Can I ask (if you don't mind) to toss up a couple pics of the alernate packaging?

Also, do you know the difference between the two sensors?
I'm sure I knew at one time, but it now escapes me.

the first one with the multi-faceted fresnel lense is Passive Infrared (PIR)
I'd recon that the second one with the mesh covering is microwave.

Yep.

In the old days it was microwave. Now-a-days, the standard

is PIR (Passive InfraRed), but on some current hi-end

detectors they have both. This cuts down false alarms from

small animals and pets.

Here you go TS826,
My packaging was really trashed when I received it.
Here's some picts before it goes into the trash.
It didn't come with any manuals or instructions.
