    Question Basic Light Switch Question

    Good day gentlemen, not sure if I'm in the right forum but can you tell me what I'm looking at here? Is the orange wire going up to the light? Then two Live (phase), with the second probably going to another switch?

    Hi

    Orange is the switch wire going to the light fitting - the 2 red wires are looped out between switches and are permanently live

  3. Thanks given for this post:
