[Lab] Arduino LED Strip, PIR, and Relay

I think you need some non-blocking code in there.  The use of delay sits
and waits and does not check the status of the motion detector while it is
waiting.  So any time it is triggered, it should turn on the light and then
"hang" before turning off the light and starting to check for motion again.

What I would do is use millis function.  Look at the blink without delay
(non blocking code) for an example.  then anytime I saw montion I would
change the counter to current millis + "on timer length"

Hope this helps.
