Hi can anyone help me with a diagram on how to wire a pir. The one I have only has three wires, live, neutral and earth ... These diagrams I have seen show a switching line too Motion sensor wiring with switched override feature - https://www.flameport.com/electric/lighting_circuits/PIR_lighting_sensor_with_override_switch.cs4

Any ideas, many thanks in advance

Chris

So what are you actually trying to achieve?
The drawing you linked to has one switch as isolator and the second as override.

A P.I.R with only a Live and no switched live would be pointless.
Is it a stand alone unit or does it have a light fixed to it?
Have you got a picture of the P.I.R unit or a link to where you bought it from

Most PIRs don't have an earth connection. I suspect you have line neutral and switched line.
