Hi all, I’ve removed the antiquated burglar alarm from the wall in my understates toilet. It’s on the circuit marked as ‘downstairs lights’.
I had expected to be able to simply joint the corresponding wires that went in and out, but they’re not the same colours!
Any advice on how I should proceed would be very much appreciated!
