I use simple store bought PIR' for activating lights in my shop to scare people away, lately I wanted to have a bell go off too BUT the output of the pir wont ring the bell, is this an inductive load? the little red wire of the pir only outputs about 104 V ac which will turn on the resistive load of my lights but not activate the transformer for the bell? am I missing something? or do I somehow need to boost the power output of the PIR? someone must know the answer, thanks Steve

Connect 480 volts to the microwave. Then put the buzzer inside that. Should work ok now.

That's called an RIP when you connect it that way, macmikeman.

No, no, you got it all wrong @macmikeman , you have to take the HV transformer out of the microwave, and THEN connect 480 volts to it, then get a second Microwave transformer and put it in there and then the buzzer will work🙃🙃
