Garage motion sensing switch

I want to install a motion sensing switch for my 5 incandescent garage lights. The only switch for these lights is just inside the house next to the service door going out to the attached garage. Is there any way to install a motion detecting switch in the garage but still control the lights by the switch in the house?

Thanks in advance for any response. Tom

You could install the motion sensor downstream of the existing switch. This way the switch will over-ride the motion sensor.
