Are you looking for a PIR motion sensor that is wireless or wired? Are you looking for a PIR sensor that is built into a control board? You can get a relatively cheap control board that has a built in PIR motion sensor built into it. You can also get wireless sensors that works in conjunction with the control board and it's own built in sensor (see Ralph's site).

Here are the manufacturers from the USA that produce control boards if it may be of any help. They come as very simple and tiny to a bit larger and more complex and in different price ranges. You will need the proper program for the control board to run your DSLR build. Check out these sites and drop them a line. They are great guys, extremely knowledgeable and can do custom programming to suit your needs. Their sites are as follows and in no particular order...............

Ralph's website is..............................http://rcdavisgamecamerasolutions.weebly.com/
Gary's website is...............................http://www.snapshotsniper.com/
Jeff's website is.................................https://www.trlcam.com/

Thanks for the links I shall take a look. I will be honest electrics are not my strong point.
A wired setup would be fine not problem with that.
Thanks again

These are some of the best tutorials on the subject of DSLR builds. Jeff posted them here over the years and are very much worth looking at. They may be a part 5 as well so maybe have a look for that too.
