help w/ tailgate foot sensor install/general car electronics

new to car electronics. so need a bit of help from resident installers/electricians. will be a good learning exp for me.

i bought tailgate foot sensor. with 4 wires.

constant 12v

is it recommended that i tap into a 12v/ACC wire somewhere in the back or run new one from fusebox? If i do tap. i will be putting in inline 5a fuse for each acc/12v

Also i've been reading in the RDX the trigger (automatic close) is positive wired? how can i confirm this. i believe a voltmeter? but not sure what im looking for. and if its positively wired so i need a relay?

is it recommended i use close button trigger or release/open button trigger.

Hello Rallydrv,
What year and kind of vehicle do you have?
Can you share the link for the hatch opener that you have?
