Any Sparkies On Here? Outside Pir Question

03 June 2015 - 06:04 PM

Just moved into our new build house(hence not being on much recently) and have a question about outside light/PIR.


Basically we have a pair of 'Up and Down' lights either side of the front door which, according to the builder, had to be wired through a PIR to pass 'Regs' quoting Security and energy saving. He also said that we could remove it once we moved in though  ;)


What I would like to do, and I don't know why we didnt do it when the house was being built, is to remove the PIR and install a small PIR controlled spotlight in it's place. What I would like to happen is to allow the 'Up and Down' lights be left on as long as the switch is on and for the spotlight to come on as and when it gets triggered if that makes sense  :wacko:


Reading this through I think I've answered my own question..........it's gonna be more complicated than just replacing the PIR with a spotlight so I think I'll have to get a professional in.
