Motion Sensor

Son took down old motion sensor double flood and took same apart - left new sensor with me - How do I rewire - new sensor has red, black and white wires comming out of it. Each flood has its own black and white comming from them. Sensor is a Heath/Zenith HL-5316-WH-A - I can connect wires and he'll climb and install - Thanks for the help - pax

It should say in the directions that came with the new sensor but I believe the red wire is the switch leg off the sensor. Connect the blacks of the lights to the red wire. The black of the sensor to the wall black and all the whites together. Again, some verification from the directions is suggested.
