Matt,

My understanding was that passive infrared sensors, the type normally used, detect heat emitted by humans/animals, not motion. Some of them have sensitivity adjustments too, just haven't been able to find a 24v one! The human detection part is to detect both us and unwelcome guests. :)

Your solution could work if you don't need the unwelcome guest detection. Make sure it's well sealed against the elements and won't go crazy with all the interference on a boat. Our Simpson davits came with a remote controller and the receiving unit would sometimes randomly lift or lower the dinghy.
