    Hi,
    I've just taken down my old pir light from in the porch and wanted to replace it with the 1 amp ring spotlight camera. II' a bit lost on how to wire the core and earth wire to the wire when I take the plug off. I want it on the lighting circuit as it had its own dedicated switch inside to turn it off if I wanted. I will connect writes inside a good junction box.
    Thanks for advice on advance

    Use a fused spur which will double up as your junction box.

    It will be obvious when you look inside, live in, neutral in, live out, neutral out, the latter two are usually marked "load".

    Brown live, Blue neutral, unless it's old cable in which case it will be Red and Black.
