Question Can I connect motion sensor in such a way

Hello there,

I'll try to be as short as possible. I have motion sensor and a lamp, can I connect it in such a way, that I can turn on the lamp by a switch if let's say I need it in day time (my motion sensor has variable lux parameter) and at the same time it would work with the motion sensor? Motion sensor connects like this: neutral to sensor and lamp, phase to sensor and then phase from motion sensor (OUTPUT channel) to lamp.

phase to sensor = hot to motion sensor
phase from motion sensor (OUTPUT channel) to lamp = load to light.

Yes.... you can use a single pole switch to combine these two wires to make the light come on during the day or when there is no motion detected at night.
