    He's a lovely bloke from the neighbourhood I think I am HIS fanclub !

    Good news though,your suspicions were right, it was the outside switch and the live and neutral were the wrong way around, whoops.
    Hopefully that's solved the problem it seems to have done so as it's coming on at the right time and going off at the right time...amazing.

    I can't thank you all enough for all your suggestions you all hit the nail on the head without even seeing it, I much appreciate your kind help and advice and luckily nobody was electrocuted which is just a bonus

    Hi everyone

    I have identical problem with the same model - C4HTS. No isolator switch is used, light switch only.
    It's working all the time with the lights off and switches itself off within 30 sec.(as per timer set), turning the light on.
    Could you advise on what can be done to solve an issue?

    Hi there

    I have the exact same issue as the original poster. Perhaps the wiring at my isolator switch is also wrong. Attached is a photo.

    The original poster’s incorrect wiring across the terminals in the top row and bottom row was (N = neutral, L = live, - = empty)
    NL-L
    L-NL-

    My wiring is:
    LL-N
    L-LN-

    What’s the correct wiring? If mine looks wrong I’ll get an electrician in. (Please excuse my amateur understanding of this.)

    Thank you,
    David
