Set up Hue motion sensor to toggle lights on motion and toggle other lights on light level

Hi all, Got various Hue lights all working fine with my 2nd gen bridge. Bought 4 Hue Appear outdoor lights (the up/down wall wash lights) and a floodlight last week and just installed them all. All working fine but now incorporating an outdoor sensor. What I am hoping to achieve is to use the outdoor sensor light sensor to turn on the wall lights when it gets to a certain darkness (i know i can use sunset/sunrise but want to use the sensor as will be more accurate). But i also want to use the same sensor to turn on my driveway floodlight (again a hue product) when motion detected but using the same light settings. Any ideas? At the moment i can set the wall lights to come on at a certain darkness setting but it will also turn on the floodlight. They are in different zones by the way. I am sure it can be done but missing something simple…any ideas? thanks in advance
