Hi
In my hallway I have several led floor lights that are plugged into a wall socket
Can I add a motion sensor so that they switch on when I walk into the hallway
Thanks for any help

Welcome to the forum mate.
So currently you switch the floor lights on by switching on the socket?
You could add a motion sensor to switch these light on but you would have to put it between the socket and the lights.
I'd also get a sensor that has a Dusk function, so that the lights don't come on during the day, when it's light.

Thanks for the reply
Can you recommend a sensor
Doesn't really matter about dusk, as it's quite a dark hallway

Hows your current lights installed and operated?
Is it as I have mentioned above?

I'm presuming that the cable from the socket to the floor lights will most probably stay at skirting board height.
It would be better to know the layout of the lights and where the sensor is going to pick a sensor.
Any chance of uploading some pics.

Get your son to send over some pics to you and you can then upload them.
