Need problem solver for lighting dilemma

DISREGARD--- already resolved
Thanks anyway-----------------------------

Not insultated so rewiring can be done but trying to avoid cost of it.

New construction, elevated with ground floor unoccuppied underneath. Attached is location of for ground flood lights, switch at front and at back of house.

We want them motion detector floods although #1&2 dont have to be motion detector.

Problem is #1&2 are only lights for the pool so when at pool at night, want #1 & 2 able to stay on without requiring motion. Assume motion and non-motion can go on same circuit.


If 1&2 arent motion, then when we turn switch on so other 5 motions are activated overnight than reg 2 pool lights would end up lit up all night long into the morning

Is this impossible to avoid without rewiring?
Could use a motion light which could manually be switched to stay on without motion.

My motion detection outdoor lights switch from motion to non-motion on/off, just by flipping the switch. Flip it once and they do motion, turn them off and on again and they stay on until turned off. Turn off and on, then they become motion again. Would that solve the problem?

After talking with too many HDepot 800 departments, see light has ADJUSTABLE MANUAL OVERRIDE.

Not on online description but noted on box although couldve been larger print (excuses, excuses)
Thanks again
