    those little knobs are probably designed and built for that specific unit ....
    you may find something remotely similar but not likely the same

    I've been searching for ages for them and can't find anything anywhere I know there's ones on specific models made for them but surely can buy them separately? Maybe

    Well your image looks just like the one I linked to....

    ...also, the knobs are the same. If the whole package doesn't 'fit' just buy one to use the knobs it comes with.

    .... which makes a total mockery of your original post and wasted a whole heap of peoples time :rolleyes:

    Why did you take the time to publish the original picture AND edit the marking on it to illustrate the bits you (supposedly) want?

    If they are the same as in that picture then, as per my last post, just buy the PIR and use the knobs off it. If it's something entirely different perhaps you'd like to enlighten us?

    If the OP wants 'remote' controls then rather than extend (or add) knobs then he should find the value of the adjustable controls (usually 10kΩ or 100kΩ) and purchase 'full sized' potentiometers and fit them in place of the original parts.
