Hall of Shame

Solid Connections

So the connector block was for what exactly?

Well Watered

And the RCBO keeps tripping why?

Poor coverage

Sensor here mounted directly above a light fitting. Reports of ‘poor coverage’!


I believe the principle of ‘dual redundancy’ has been deployed here. First time for everything…

The budget range

A very real example of why cheaper is not always the wisest choice.

4 Button Scene Panel

No problem! Are they doorbell pushers?

Leaving it slack

Just a little slack left in these cables then…

A case for lighting control

So what is wrong with just having a light switch then?

When more is less

Just a few LED power supplies and 1-10V drivers. Believe it or not this was for one room in a residential project.
