Rated 4 out of 5 by from Handy little switch. Not much to say really - it’s a switch! Reasonably good quality, complete with everything need to install. Not the greatest value for what it is, but is comparative with other options.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not waterproof, cheap cr4p I’ve had this fitted for approx 1 year. Was fine to start with, a bit fiddly to wire but okay. However 12mths on and it’s full of water and totally rusted out inside causing my outside garden lights to short. Not suitable for outdoor use.

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
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. This BG 1-Gang 2-Way Single Pole Slim Weatherproof Switch is basically a standard light switch in a weatherproof housing, so as with all light switches it only has terminals for Live connections (Com for the incoming permanent Live, L1 or 1 Way for the outgoing/switched Live), any Neutrals would need to be joined together in some connector strip and any Earths would also need to be joined (separately) in another connector block/terminal.

Wiring LED

How to wire the LED to be ONLY ON when switch is ON? There is no terminal block for neutral like on wiring diagram on data sheet? Can the LED be wired both ends into L1?
Asked by: Spoonboy90
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. Due to the reduced space inside this BG 1-Gang 2-Way Single Pole Slim Weatherproof Switch there was nowhere to affix a standard piece of terminal block, however there is enough free volume inside the back-box to accommodate you adding a piece yourself. Wiring both ends of the indicator light into L1 would result in the light never illuminating (as there would be no potential difference between the power levels on each side of it).

Can this switch be used for a12 volt pond pump

Asked by: Strontiumdog
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. The switch itself is entirely mechanical, so is voltage independent (up to 220-254), but the indicator lamp inside is a 240V component so may not function on 12V if the feed is running through the switch at this level..
