    Default Driveway lighting

    Can someone suggest a simple way to automatically control my driveway lighting, and which components would be needed. THX

    You don't say what type of driveway lighting you have, or want, or how long your driveway is.

    The simplest way is probably a mains PIR tied into your lighting circuit. If you've got a long driveway you may want to consider a PIR at each end of the drive. You can get PIRs from the major DIY sheds, TLC (www.tlc-direct.co.uk), Screwfix (www.screwfix.com) etc.

    Note that external lighting circuits now fall under the new "Part P" section of the Building Regulations. This ow means there's more paperwork to be done, and also possible inspections required for the installation.

    HTH,

    Tim.
