WOULD THERE BE A PROBLEM WITH WIRING THE LED IN DIRECT AND USING 1 SPST SWITCH FOR CAMERA ON AND 1 SPST SWITCH FOR SENSOR POWER. WILL LEAVING THE LED WIRED IN DIRECT DRAIN THE BATTERY TO FAST. RADIO SHACK DOESNT HAVE THE DPDT SWITCH IN STOCK AND I DONT WANT TO WAIT FOR THEM TO ORDER IT.ANY BODY HOOKED UP ONE LIKE THIS.

I wouldn't see why you couldnt do it like that. you could also add a 3rd switch for the LED and have 3 seperate switches.

Actually, LED's draw a lot of current and would be hard on the Batteriesif they are lit up all the time.  

RS did have an LED that only used 2 ma's but I think they don't carry them anymore, an average, run of the mill LED draws 20ma's,  Your RS PIR draws less than 1ma.....

Another switch that will work is 275-1545, maybe they'll have this one

Tinhorn can probably tell you but it is probably at least 2 to three times or more for the MS20 style than the RSPIR based on the battery life of each.
