Looking for a supplier that is cheaper than 49.99 for ONE Beam Sensor for trigger inputs to prop and scene controllers.

This is what I am looking for:

But cheaper? Kind of ridiculous at 50 dollars a pop. Multiply that times 25 rooms and I'm broke before I even start.

Thanks in advance!

Allen, so you're saying it's a deal? Just seems so much for so little..... Idk. Maybe my internal cost worthiness meter is off....

BUT you should research the piss out of it first. I mistakenly ordered the type with wired transmitter AND receiver the first time. Still worked, but had to run wires to both sides to make it work. You surely want the reflective type- wired on one side, reflector on the other. VERY similar part numbers...

you might want to look at a company called automationdirect.
