To test the 3 wire connection, do I tie all three wires together for 1 second?

Also, I believe I need a Stereo jack and plug to the PIR.  Is that correct?

Does anyone have Part numbers for the Stereo Jack and plug from Radioshack?

What wires go to what on the Stereo connector?

I just want to put the stereo connectors on the wires not a jack mounted to the PIR.  Well, I guess I could use a jack mounted to the PIR.  But I was thinking of just disconnecting lines.  One from the camera and one from the PIR.

RS inline 3 conductor phone jack  274-274b
RS inline 3 conductor phone plug 274-284c

1.  It don't really matter if plug or jack goes to the camera

2.  you must know which wire goes to which pin inside the camera

3.  solder the 3 wires from the camera to one of the connectors, I'd put PIN 4 on the TIP terminal

4.  solder the 2 wires from the relay to the other connector (be sure tip is to tip) and add a JUMPER across the other two terminals (NOT TIP)

5.  to test,  short pins 5 & 6 together then touch these two with the pin 4 wire, it should Flash

touching pin 4 to pin 6 will be the "half press" and you will see/hear the flash charge up and if you leave this wire on a few seconds, you will see the REd Eye Reduction come on

DON'T touch pin 4 to pin 5 without pin 6 being shorted to it
