Security lights on 2 circuits?

I have two security lights on the rear of the house,controlled by 3 PIRs
Recently they have been switching on and off at random throughout the night.They seem to be supplied from a fused switch in a bedroom which is wired from an adjacent socket. This switch will turn the lights on and off but is overridden by the PIRs, Ie I cannot turn them off. So I turned off all the trips at the board,one by one but the lights remained on and the adjacent socket also remained active.I assumed that the socket was not routed through a trip.
OR is it possible that the socket and therefore the lights switch is being supplied by two separate circuits?
I've removed the bulbs for now.
Also how do I test the PIRs?
Hope this makes sense!
Thanks

Your profile is incomplete. This is primarily a North American forum. No fused switches in normal residential wiring and not sure what a socket is. Ran your IP. You are in England, correct? Hold on someone may be able to help you. Is a PIR a passive infrared sensor? Is that also known as a motion detector?
