    I have a few lights around the house that are triggers by a PIR and, by a switch. The light sensors work well, the light comes on and then, goes out after the pregrammed delay. However with the switch control, the light also goes out after the programmed delay.

    How can I get the switch to override the delay and only be a toggle on/off?

    Many thanks,

    One possible way: Use two groups and logic in the output unit.

    Any Progress?

    I am interested to know if you have sorted this problem out?
    Without looking at the system My guess would be that the PIR is the problem, what you need to do is disable the PIR when the light switch is in use, from memory you can disable the PIR with a group, I think then you should be able to use this same group to switch the Light on.

    Please let me know how if you sorted the problem out.
