All of us would like to reduce energy bills but putting that into action is another thing. Taking time out of our busy schedules to tweak existing routines and systems can be hard, what’s more, understanding and then deciding what changes to actually make can be even harder. Being an electrical wholesaler we thought we’d help you in your mission to deduct your monthly bills, offering you some fast solutions which are more than achievable with our current stock.
Before you make any changes you might want to view how much existing energy you are using. This can be achieved by installing a home energy monitor, which can give you live readings of how much electricity your home is producing. Having an energy monitor in the home can be the antagonist for change, acting as the wake up call you need to reduce energy bills.
The LightwaveRF Energy Monitor is a state-of-the-art model which relies upon a smart phone app to convey it’s readings. Once it’s hooked up to your LightwaveRF Wifi Link, you’ll be able to monitor the exact amount of energy being used. Its advanced real-time energy consumption reader could be just what you need to keep tabs on your energy output. (more…)

An electricians job can often be fiddly and risky, that’s why little devices such as the Click CT101C are such a convenience. This all in one junction box and connection system provides a lightweight, easy to use and safely operated alternative to bulkier more expensive models. Specifically designed for lighting circuits to help enable isolation of transformers and control gear, it conducts the 1000v Insulation Resistance Test.
Testing lighting circuits can take a lot of effort for electricians. Failure to disconnect transformers or ballasts from the circuit will see the ‘Mega’ test blow the electronics, subsequently amplifying costs, labour and more worryingly adding a dangerous risk to those involved. The Click Flow CT101C can now assist electricians with the disconnection of electronics from the luminaire whilst the MEGA 1000V test is executed. (more…)
You now have the chance to recreate your very own Creamfields by using some quality effect lighting. Multicoloured laser lights can help to set a galactic scene wherever you are; be it a house party, a rented town hall or a city nightclub. Getting loose and lost in a field of multicoloured lasers is a favourite past time for so many people – from the 90s Haçienda crowd right up to 2015 ravers in Glastonbury’s Dance Tent.
There’s something magical about wading through artificial smoke and bright effect lighting as the music pumps. Lights and music are a match made in heaven, it doesn’t matter how big the venue is because if you get the correct balance of good people, good lights and good music, it can seem like you’ve been transported into the best nightclub in the world.
