Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does the job Nice compact switch. Plenty of internal space. I did disconnect the neon indicator as it was not required. I will be using this switch on my next external job.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Failed after week I put 3 in at home and one of the switch mechanisms failed inside 1 week of limited use. Stripped down and it is the mechanism.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good but has flaws Works fine for standard lighting but has a design issue. The Neon LED links Com and L1 to function. The internal LED acts as a switch and has enough juice to make some LED lighting glow constantly at low level. Will have to remove LED to stop this

Can you confirm the H x W x D dimensions please.

The width is the most important bit.
Asked by: Cheeseking
Hi Cheeseking, Our product data shows dimensions of:- 90 mm (tall) x 65 mm (deep) x 60mm (wide) [although cyclic tool wear between refreshes may cause a mil or two deviation from this occasionally).

Garden String lights

Will this work with mains operated garden string lights - will the switch have an earth terminal?
Asked by: EHan
Hi EHan, As long as the switch is not overloaded (which with a 4.8kW capacity seems unlikely) then what the switch is controlling should not have any negative impact on it. Yes there is an Earth Terminal in the box (not a part of the switch mechanism).

Wiring this up

I have security LED light . Live - neutral - earth. My supply is a 240v from supply box live - neutral - earth . Then I have this switch. The live wire goes into common and the neutral goes where and the earth goes where ? Supply - switch - light
Asked by: Oldpainless
STOP! If you don't know the answer to this you should CERTAINLY NOT be attempting to wire it yourself. This stuff is life and death you know, no joke.
