One of the apartments we stayed in the US had a cool thing where when you walked into the bathroom at night a night light would switch on when it detected movement. I can't see much in NZ that works the same way. I need a few battery operated ones, but this operated from the mains and I would prefer that.

Anyone know of places that sell these cost effectively?

Electrical wholesalers have pir sensors for this type of use available. Either roof mounted or a module that fits into a standard wall plate. Many houses have these in hallways and stairwells to switch floor lights.

As it's going to be a permanently wired device, I'm under the impression that it won't be a legal "DIY" option - you'll need a Sparky (and I DON'T mean a former-Telecom employee!) to do it for you. They should fairly easily be able to locate and supply the appropriate parts.

Well it's just a plug in device to the AC Power.

Sure, if it's just a plug-in, no problem.  I assumed from your description (and from what I've seen in newer open homes), it was a permanently built-in thing.
