I have just bought the following 5-pin switches of eBay: here 5-pin switch

Problem is that no spec came with it and I am now wondered if I can directly wire the LED pins to the main or if I need to add extra electronics.

    \$\begingroup\$ Ok, I retracted my closing/duplicate vote. Better ask the seller as said above. \$\endgroup\$ – Michel Keijzers Jul 9 '20 at 15:21

The LED voltage is part of the ordering options, so if you selected 220VAC, and they got the order right, that should be the correct voltage.

    \$\begingroup\$ Ok, I wired the 2 LED pins directly to the main and it did not blow up, yeah! :-) \$\endgroup\$ – toughQuestions Jul 9 '20 at 16:43

The seller provided the wiring diagram. I am adding it as an answer as I believe it may help other people to understand how these swtches work. enter image description here enter image description here
