    Question Light Switch Outlet, which is the ground wire?

    I'm installing a motion sensor in place of an existing light switch. The old light switch had 2 black wires and the motion sensor has 2 black wires, but the motion sensor also has a green ground wire. Which wire in the outlet box does this green ground wire attach to? Is it the bare copper wire?

    Yup, the bare copper wire.
