Dave, in the post Jay mentioned, I thought the original
setup was two existing, independant light/sensor combinations,
each fed from it's own switch, that were to be connected so
that either sensor activated both lights; this gets
tricky per my original comments. However, subsequent
e-mails clarified the situation: the two lights are
currently on one switch and two new sensors are to be
added. This is much easier, and you are correct that
the sensors, assuming they act as a simple relay
closures (i.e. SPST) can just be paralled and wired
in series with the original switch.

If you need further clarification, I can fax you a
diagram (but I'd need to know whether power for the
circuit comes into the switch box or the light fixture
