    image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg Hello, need a bit of help. First off I have a good knowledge of domestic electrical circuits however I am not an electrician.

    Last year I knocked my dining room & original kitchen into one large kitchen.
    As there where two light fittings & to switches, instead of lifting floorboards upstairs and rewiring. I decided to install 2 faceplate PIR sensors and 2 chrome 6 GU10 fittings.

    I have a few questions.

    The faceplate PIR sensors only work if halogen GU10 bulbs are installed, why is this?

    I have tried 5 LED 1 halogen, which works but makes the PIR buzz.

    Is there a faceplate style PIR that is compatible with LEDS?

    It actually says on the back of the switch that its 60 to 300 watts, your 6 led bulbs are less than 60 watts together.
