    Hi,

    I'm planning to add an outside light with a PIR to the corner of a garden shed, and was looking to find something similar to this, but that can be fixed on a 90 degree corner of the building.

    https://www.screwfix.com/p/asd-black-bc-pir-master-half-lantern-wall-light-with-pir-60w/45075

    screwfix part number 45075 if the forum messes up the link :D

    Has anyone seen anything along these lines that they could suggest? A quick search through only finds bracket type lights that stick out a long way from the corner, which isn't really what I want.

    The alternative is obviously a stand-alone PIR to use with a normal light, but and all-in-one fitting will be more straightforward, so would be preferable really.

    Any suggestions much appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Colin

    Perhaps get a couple of pieces of Arris rail (or make your own) either side of the corner to give you a flat face to fix to?

    A good quality PIR is THIS

    and this optional corner bracket can be purchased with it
