    I have had to replace the PIR sensor (PIR motion detector) for my outside 500w light.
    On the sensor there is a white,brown and blue cable
    from the house there is a blue,brown, black and green/yellow cable.
    How do I connect these cables.
    Thanks

    ok try this blue to blue
    brown to brown
    white to black as this must be the switch wire to turn light on the others are the live and neutral

    green and yellow well put in a connector block as the sensor shouldnt need a earth as its probaly double insulated

    hope that helps
