Flood Light Wiring With Red, Yellow and Green Wires

Postby T5erk » Sun Oct 15, 2017 5:57 pm

I have bought an outside sensor flood light, which I want to install. It's just a matter of replacing an old broken one with a new one. I have already done this with a different light, with no issues.
Problem this time is that the new light has red, yellow and green wires instead of the traditional blue, brown and yellow/green.
I don't have any paperwork for the light to explain what is what.
Can anyone help with this?

Simply Build It

Each manufacturer decides what colour of wire to use for what purpose. The connections should be standard, or at least marked. If they are not then you need to get back in touch with where ever you purchased the light from and ask for the relevant paper work.

If you can post a picture we may be able to help. But with only your description it's only possible to guess.
