    Outdoor lighting motion sensor but not after specific time!

    Hi, We are looking to get some lights on the front of our house that we would like to come on when it starts to get dark, but not after a specific time such as 23:00.

    Any experience with I LumoS LED strip lighting?

    We are thinking of replacing the rather ugly ceiling light in our living room with LED strips around the perimeter of the room (mounted as uplights on coving). The room is about 6 x 4.6 metres with a few alcoves giving us a circumference of roughly 21.5 metres. From what I've seen, the maximum...

    Hi, I’ve just moved home and would like to update to smart lighting and will eventually want to include wider automation including heating, CCTV, basic security, environmental monitoring and more.

    Is Sony/Samsung anti-reflection filter good enough for a room with flat panel LED lighting?

    Hi all, My lounge has bright, office-style LED panel lighting (to help with a visual impairment). My current (OLED) 55" is high on the wall and tilted downward to the viewing position so the ceiling lights are not in the angle of reflection. I'm looking to change to a 75" (Sony XH95, X95J, or...

    Weird lighting in fictional houses?

    This might sound like a weird question, but why is it that so many houses in movies and TV shows are seemingly lit by a half dozen floor\table lamps placed around the outside of the room, rather than by down lighters or central ceiling roses like in real life? Is this just a weird set dressing...

    GX/G1 & Bias Lighting

    Evening All, I will be moving into a new house this year and it comes with an ’HDMI plate’ on the wall where the TV will go in the living room. In short this means I can put all AV equipment away in the corner of the room rather than underneath the TV - meaning I can have literally just the TV...
