I answer questions for free.
I know electrical wiring.
I am unsure about a few things in your question.
Are you wanting to know how to wire a product you purchased?
Are looking for a wiring diagram to see if you can do what your want?

1) Is your circuit a 3-way circuit with 2 switches controlling both lights?
2) Or are there 2 different circuits where each switch controls one light?

Here is a Leviton manual with wiring for occupancy sensors:
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Leviton-IPP0R-1LW.pdf
If you want sensors to replace 3-way switches, you need a control sensor and a remote sensor.

Replacing a one way light switch with a infrared motion sensor. Sensor has N,L,A connection points. brown to L. blue to N and green to old earth on socket base. What is the A for ? Not working Joh


It is best not to speculate about this - you need to refer to the data sheet for the switch. The passive infrared sensor will require a low voltage for operation which it will derive from the mains (probably) but that would usually require a neutral to be present in some form.

A neutral of sorts could be derived from the circuit through the load, but only while it is switched off) or from the earth connection, which is a practice that is frowned upon.

PIR switches and house wiring is incompatable?


Several possibilities. First use standard light bulbs until it is working. Some of the PIR have triac outputs which need a minimum amount of current to work. CFL and LED lights can be a problem with electronic switches/dimmers.

The PIR needs electricity to operate. The black and white wire are probably power and return, there is no neutral to connect to the PIR. Unless you can get a different PIR that does not need line power to operate you are out of luck. There may be some that can cycle steal power and would work but I am not familiar with them.

I assume the three way is a three way PIR and the lights that are flickering are electronic such as LED or CFL.

If you talk to one of the people where you bought the switch they may help you free of charge.

Good Luck

Pir connected to 3 bulkhead lights the lights work but the pir doesn't appear to operate the lights just stay on I have attached a picture of the wiring can anybody tell me if it is correct


It appears you do not have it wired correctly. If you want help a better description is needed. I would think the brown wire needs to be connected to something.

I want to replance a standard wall switch (2 wires: white & black) with a PIR Occupancy Sensor switch


Copy following link for simple walk-thru how to wire occupancy switch
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-occupancy-switch.html

This device is made to replace single-pole switch.
Power to fan: note the horsepower range for device: for example if occupancy switch is rated 1/4 Hp, then it will work for ordinary bath fan. If device is rated for 1/3-1/2 Hp then it is rated for whole-house fan.
Each fan motor will have rating plate showing Hp. Check rating labels for each device.

User manual for fl09sbk light


It appears this device is rate 10 amps at 230 volts = 2300 watts.
Use at least #14 wire and 15 amp breaker.
Connect wire at connection point on light.
Unit appears to have a transformer, and might make humming sound.
There is override located somewhere on unit. Possibly as a button on the motion sensor

If infrared motion detector requires separate wiring connection, then use following wiring illustration:
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/How-to-wire-motion-sensor-230V.jpg

Motion sensor will probably have 2 settings.
1st setting for sensitivity, so it will not activate when cat walks up driveway.
2nd setting for time duration, selectable from 30 seconds to 7 minutes

Wiring diagram for a p i r to a light


They all wire the same. The black wire on the PIR connects to the incoming (usually black) hot or switched wire. The red wire on the PIR connects to the light(s), usually a black wire. The white (neutral) wire from the PIR connects to BOTH the incoming white wire and the white wire that goes to the light(s).

How to wire


This should replace any existing single pole (one location) switch. You have two wires on the pir, black and blue and then the ground. The black hooks to the hot or common wire. It may be black, but it will be the hot wire. The blue wire hooks to the wire going to the light. The ground hooks to the green or bare.

Wiring diagram 3 way motion detector switch I want the motion detector to be in the hot line box, and I want a regular 3 way to turn the light on from the load box. So far I can only get the motion...


Sorry, but you need one extra wire between the switches to wire "the opposite configuration" that you want :-(
That means going into the attic and pulling another cable :-( I can walk you through it if you are willing to do all that work.
The only other solution would be to purchase the commercial version of that motion switch, which would also require a sensor at _each_ switch location :-(
