Adding Second Oudoor Security Light to Existing PIR ...

· Simple answer is yes, however the existing PIR will have either a solid state or mechanical relay with a maximum rating. You don't know what that rating is so if you draw power from it you could cause an overload. My outside light was designed to take a 110 Watt quartz lamp. It has a 5W LED lamp, so I could run another 21 lamps off the PIR ...

How Do You Convert An Outside Light To A Motion Sensor ...

· Obviously, you can’t always do this if you use existing light locations. One solution is to install a motion detector that you can mount some distance away from the lights themselves (Fig. B, No. 3). The wires that connect the detector to the light are low voltage and not dangerous, so you don’t have to enclose them in metal or plastic conduit.

I assume this is because if I wished to switch the light on, once connected to the PIR it will only come if the PIR is calling for it. I am aware with built in ...

Yes, you can keep the standard switches and just leave them 'on', but, unless there are neutral wires present in the switch back box location there is no point installing a switch fcu (spur). Yes, you can power an outside light from a socket circuit, just use the switched fcu as the switch and that fully complies. Also, consider ...

· Reaction score. 1,714. Oct 28, 2018. #5. A double pole switch (such as those on switched fused connection units) is advisable on circuits feeding outside lights, so that in the event of an earth fault (due to water ingress), you can isolate that part of the circuit and reset the RCD.
