Electrical help needed

  1. To try and maintain domestic harmony, I decided to fit a light in the garage with a PIR so I can't forget to turn the light off !
    However the PIR wiring diagram has me flummoxed.
    Can someone on here enlightened me ?
    N is neutral, A is ??, L is....live or load ?
    Thanks in anticipation. ( sorry can't turn diagram around .)[​IMG]

  2. Switched live
     
  3. ^this. If it's got the light built in, you don't have to worry about it. Just connect the live and neutral supply. If not, connect the external light to A.

  5. I have new light wired into lighting circuit in garage.....this is a stand alone PIR that I need to fit as a switch.
    Does the replies mean that A is the switched live ?
     
  6. Yes.

  7. Don't forget to adjust your lux levels and timer or you'll have light coming on in the day and staying on for ages/going off after 30 seconds and flapping your arms like mad trying to get it to pick you up!

  8. I’m always getting wrong for leaving the shed light on as well :oops:
     
  9. These new fangled circuit breakers let you do that......there's something to be said for natural selection!

  12. Having briefly lived in Newcastle, “getting wrong” was one of my favourite expressions. That and “we’ll have a soon tea”. Made me smile.

  15. Sorted.....thanks for the input.....useful or otherwise......trouble is, if I just go into garage to hide, light goes out if I just sit and chill !
     
  16. Stick a switch in parallel with the PIR unit.
