I have a Steinel IS360D Trio sensor on one corner of my house controlling a few of my outdoor lights. In it's manual, one of the wiring examples allowed for two switches: one for normal sensor operation, and one for manual override (just runs another line which bypasses the unit altogether and connects directly to the lights). I've wired it that way, and everything works fine.
Now I've just got a similar unit from Securimax 'Simx LHT0179', and I was wondering if I could do the same. The Steinel had a comprehensive manual, whilst the Simx has a miserable slip of paper with bugger-all information on it and no wiring diagrams.
Is it standard practice to put another switch and line to bypass these sensors for manual operation of the lights, or do the units have to be designed to allow it?
