    Hi all,

    We are just completing a basement renovation and so come the finishing touches and decoration. I am now after some swish wall sockets and switches.

    Unfortunately, our requirements are not the simple light switches and power sockets. We also RJ45 outlets for the home network, twin F-type satellite feeds, touch/remote dimmers, speaker connector (banana type), and BT telephone points.

    To give an idea of what I have been looking at have a look at these web sites.

    http://www.mlaccessories.co.uk/ml_flat.htm also available at http://www.tlc-direct.co.uk/Main_In...helsea_Index/Chelsea_Brushed_Brass/index.html but unfortunately don’t do touch dimmers, speaker points or twin f-type satellite plates.

    MK Electrics http://www.mkelectric.co.uk/PDF/technical/ASPECT_prod.pdf or http://www.mkelectric.co.uk/PDF/technical/EDGE_prod.pdf, which does a lot of modular sockets but again don’t seem to do touch dimmers or speaker points.

    It seems to be almost impossible to get a decent range of matching faceplates with all the necessary connection that is demanded by modern home cinema, audio and network setups.

    Cheers for this. I did see these options a while back but discounted them as they did not met my design ideas. I have got in touch with Lets Automate to see if they can organise something better.
