Stupid question probably, but how did u get them to fit inside your skirting? did u have to take the whole length of skirting off the wall then drill holes appropriately?
I just ordered 4 sets, thank you

It was a new installation and I fitted them as the skirting was fixed, there was gap behind to run the wires. It was planned to fit them so quite easy. May be tricky in existing skirting.
How would you power these? Would I need an external plug?

I ordered one from here: aliexpress.com/ite…tml £3.66 incl. delivery!!

Reason? It is 12V, no need for any mains voltage. If you go this route, PM me and I will draw a wiring diagram for you

The Screwfix on is mains voltage, therefore has to be wired to a 13amp socket to control the 12v transformer. I ordered a 12v transformer and wired it in after the transformer.

The ones in the kitchen kickboards took wiring from the lighting circuit and wired to a socket mounted on wall above kitchen wall units and plugged in 12 volt adapter ,then wired down to kickboards.
Have put them in 4 ceilings and up the stairs riser all wired through the lighting circuits.
Bit bonkers on lighting.

Thanks for that, gives me a good idea how to "pinch" power from other sources

I would be cautious wiring a 13amp socket from the lighting circuit just to operate a PIR switch, safer and easier to use one operating at the same voltage as the lighting. Cheaper too!! Just my opinion.
