Wiring my addition

I installed a new sub-panel and on one circuit I have 4 recepticles and I was wondering if I would be ok to run a motion sensor light outside the addition off the end of that circuit, its on a 20a breaker all wired with 12/2.

Thanks in advance,

It depends on what is plugged into those receptacles and how many watts the lights are. In most normal situations, however, this will be okay. But it would not be okay if those four receptacles are in a kitchen, dining room, bathroom, or laundry area.

All the outlets

All the outlets are in my work area over a work bench not all will be used at one time but it will be a drill or a light or both.
