    Hey All,
    I have a little dilemma. I want to install a PIR at the top of my garden and at the bottom so lights lighting up the pathway between top and bottom are lit up no matter which end I start from. Can some please post me a diagram to show how this is done. the distance between top and bottom is around 50ft which should make a difference but I thought I would let you know. regards

    My advice is to employ a local electrician to carry out the work.

    Welcome
    Wire the PIRs in parallel so if either one senses movement the lights come on.

    Hi J, Agree with all above. What type of cable, how many conductors, what type of lights (loading), existing or new circuit, IP rating, building regulations compliance, insulation resistance, disconnection times, additional protection etc. Your friendly local Electrician can solve all this for you :)
