Outdoor Downlights

Outdoor Downlights

Outdoor Downlights Shaldon, Devon One of our customers recently had a new garage built and as part of the works some new steps down to the house were also installed. The problem was that at night the steps were too dark to be safe so a solution was sought to lighten up the steps when it was dark. Having had problems in the past with PIR sensors being triggered falsely by animals and people walking past in the road, our customer decided to have a slightly bespoke solution – a photocell (dusk/dawn sensor) was used to trigger the lighting when darkness falls and to then consequently turn the lighting off when it gets light again the next morning. The twist for this installation was that the customer didn’t ultimately want the lights on all night when they were asleep. To remedy this, we installed a timer prior to the photocell to enable this feature to be achieved. The lighting is then switched off from between midnight and 6am. The lighting installed was 3 x 7W LED downlights which were installed into the soffit of the new roof which ran alongside the steps and this creates an excellent light throughout the run.

Garage Electrical Install

Garage Electrical Install

Garage Electrical Installation Shaldon, Devon Having recently had a new garage built, a customer of ours asked us to install a basic electrical system. Utilising LED strip lights for the lighting, we also installed some metal clad sockets and also some additional sockets to enable the customer to have automatic garage doors installed. Supply to the garage was via 6mm2 3 core SWA cable, and as the power was being fed from an 30mA RCBO in the house consumer unit no additional RCD protection was required in the consumer unit in the garage.

Wireless Thermostat

Wireless Thermostat

Wireless Thermostat Installation Dawlish Warren, Devon Frustrated with the location of their existing room thermostat (in a hall), a customer of ours approached us to ask about installing a wireless thermostat so they could move it wherever they were in the house to maintain a comfortable temperature. As they owned a combi boiler there was no need to have any hot water programming control but the customers wanted to be able to program heating times in and to also be able to adjust the temperature manually. We supplied and installed a Honeywell CM921 battery operated thermostat with wired receiver underneath the boiler.

Consumer Unit Replacement

Consumer Unit Replacement

Consumer Unit Replacement Brixham, Devon Responding to a job listing posted on MyBuilder.com for a Consumer Unit Replacement, we arranged to pop out for a free no obligation site visit to ascertain exactly what needed doing to modernise the installation at the customer’s address. It was fairly clear to see (if you look at the before picture) that the electrical system in this house had been there for some time and was in desperate need of a little attention! We provided a quote to renew the consumer unit to a new Dual RCD MK unit, and install both water and gas main bonding as this was not present. The customer was happy with our quote and we proceeded with the work. If you have any concerns about the safety of your electrical installation or would like us to quote to upgrade your consumer unit please contact us on 01626 818280 or email info@matrixelectricalservices.co.uk New Consumer Unit New Consumer Unit Old Consumer...
