Hi, I'm hoping someone can shed some light on a problem I have with a PIR sensor.

It all seems to work fine, except for the manual override. I do as the instructions suggest(off/on, off/on within 2 seconds) but nothing happens.

Please see the circuit diagram that I've adopted attached below. Anyone got any ideas why the manual override is not working?

Thanks, Owen

Personally I hate these "toggle the switch" type override, never can figure out what mode I've got it into. Chances are it has a daylight sensor or something that's stopping it working when you test it.

Only just bought it from screwfix. Does the wiring look correct?
