    Hello All

    I've had a 4-gang dimmer (varilight) installed. One of the modules is meant to control a set of pir security light (up/down type). I didn't realise that a pir would require a straight mains connection. So now the pir works fine until the dimmer cuts the signal. Is there a way around this using the current setup or would I need to get another connection for the pir lights? thanks

    Do you need to dim the light, remove the dimmer concerned and fit a switch module to match the other 3 dimmers

    Thanks All. I've decided to change the lights to a dimmable, non-pir which should address the issues
