Hi

Can anyone recommend a decent PIR sensor light switch for controlling a couple of 28w 2D lights in a hall way, customer wants to replace the existing time lag switch, there is no neutral at the light switch.

Regards

I have been using Danlers for a while. I like the fact that they come with a flex on so you never have to open them up. Here's a link to one I use frequently which is 360 degrees but worth looking at the rest of the range. In passing, I also use their timed-off heating boost switches for teenagers' hair straightener sockets.

I've not had a call back to any and they look smart.

If it's 28W 2D, the minimum activation time is 15mins. Better still, don't install PIR with such fittings.

You could always convert the 2D to LED if its a worry. I tend to just go for around twenty minutes and don't suffer problems as a rule.

I believe danlers do some switch replacements that don't need a neutral, best check though, it may be someone else. Possibly CP electronics.

*edited to take the "g" out of danglers!

If you have to use a sensor make sure the time lag is on max
With 2D lamps they have to reach their operating temperature before switching if not you will be forever going back to replace lamps
Personally I wouldn't put sensor on a 2D fitting is the purpose to save the planet?
Good luck buddy
