I have an existing low brightness light fitted outside my house to light the patio, which is wired to a single switch on the inside of the wall in the lounge.

I would like to add a second PIR security light, to light the whole of the garden when necessary but still keep the existing light.
I'd like them both to be switched.

Would this be a simple job? Could you give a rough cost what an electrician should charge to fit this if I supplied the PIR light?

Couple of points to note.

If the light you supply fails / is not suitable it will be down to you to get a replacement. I would ask the electrician to get it for you.
How much it will cost depends on what is involved.
It may be you will have to have floor boards lifted (So you see no cable out side) You may opt to have it all in conduit, It may be "every thing falls into place" (doesn't happen often) and what if a person on any forum says "it will be £50 tops" and the electrician doing the job says its £82.50 Would you want to tell him that a person you don't know, that has not seen the job says it will be £50?
Like all jobs, get some one round to have a look and ask them.
