    Activating Lights Using a Motion Sensor

    I was wondering how I would configure some sort of setup to get lamps with AC adapters (link not working but Amazon name is called UV Linear Clean & Germicidal Lamp Kit for up to 100 sq. ft. Room with 5ft Cord and Plug (Ozone Free) turn on a timer once activated by a motion detector. I want them to turn on for about 15 seconds and then turn off once tripped by a motion detector but I'm lost on how to approach this. One of my colleagues told me I would need to configure an Arduino board setup causing it to shut off power to the lamps after 15s but as far as I know, arduino boards are limited to LEDs and im unsure on how to connect the AC adapter to it. Is there any way to pull this task off?

    Search internet for "motion detector light circuit".

    Or, just buy a motion detector light.
    Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn.
