Fortrezz MIMOLite and Proximity Sensor. Or other solution

Hello all,

I cannot find what I’m looking for, and I’m not sure anyone has tried to do it thus far.

I’m trying to get the Fortrezz MIMOLite to work with an IR Proximity Sensor, found here (https://www.adafruit.com/products/164).

I’m sure this will come with little surprise, but I am having no luck.

Essentially what I’m trying to do is turn on a light when something comes in proximity to the sensor. Additionally I would like it to cut off a connected device.

This system will be used to control a dust collector (DC) for my woodworking shop. I am going to use the sensor in the dust collector bin to determine how full my bin is and once it reaches a certain height I would like it to turn on a light and turn off my DC. I will be using a connected 220v switch to turn on and off my DC.

Any ideas?
