outside light

Postby mickn » Wed Nov 07, 2007 8:30 pm

Hi Sparx
I've an outside light with a 3 core wire running in to the garage and i want to connect an inside switch to it. Inside the garage i have a live 3 core wire and want to know how to draw power from the live wire to the switch which in turn will switch on/off the outside light. The wires all have red/bown and earth connections. please could you help and also tell me which terminals it should be connected to on the switch common etc.
