Hey, as mentioned on another thread -- want to canvas ideas for a door switch, i.e. doors open and the lights come on. I need suggestions of models, methods of wiring and if you have any alternatives (i.e. PIR) suggests of suitable models.

Thanks again, all.

My hotel has them on the wardrobe doors - I'll take a look tonight, but they just switch the 230V supply to a downlighter cut through the top of the fitted wardrobe as far as I can tell.

The ones I've seen before have just been a simple push-to-break switch screwed to the edge of the cupboard frame, so that the plunger is poking out.

As you close the door, it presses in the switch and turns off the light.

What about running the cable and keeping it hidden?

Stick a pir in the cupboard and connect to a light or buy a light with integral pir. Why mess with drilling door frames, etc?
