Connecting separate PIR sensor to existing light.

Hi

I hope someone can advise me ...

I want to put a sensor to the light I have on the garage so that it will light as I enter the drive in the dark. I believe a PIR can be bought and connected to the light so that it would come on automatically when its dark and picks up movement.

Can someone describe how the wiring would go, please?

Thanks

:)

I bought a PIR security light for the same reason, I simply connected some lighting cable straight into the ceiling rose Brown to L , Blue to N and Earth to E and obviously the other end into the PIR light , this way there was a permanent live feed to the light but the light only came on when movement was detected after dusk.
