Hi all. I have had a look around various threads and have found some similarities to my question but the wiring is different in mine so thought would post.

I have a double switch. One switch controls the lights in the bathroom, the other switch controls the landing lights (these lights are also controlled by two other switches - one downstairs and one along the landing). The other two switches have been covered and replaced with a Hue dimmer.

The bathroom lights are now controlled by a Hue PIR sensor. So I want to put a blank cover over this double switch so that both Bathroom and Landing lights remain on to be controlled by Huey Lewis and the News.

I have attached some photos. I have in one highlighted the bathroom switch.

Thanks in advance!

I use one of those on the downstairs toilet. Do they do double switch versions - and would that mean my wiring problem goes away?

I'm not aware of anyone selling double "secret key" switches as a single unit, but pretty much all vendors include them in their modular ranges, so you can build up a plate out of modules.

It's one of those extractors that is always on - and will come on if the light isn't on if it senses moisture.
Seems like this is a pro job - will call someone :)
