Schematics

Breadboard to motion sensor

This is the connections on the breadboard for motion detection. 10 k resistor between motion sensor out and RPI GPIO.

Breadboard to relay

This is how I connected the relay.

To the RPI GPIO

This is the connections on the raspberry pins for 5V (red), motion detector (purple) and Ground (black)
