    Just a lot of combustible materials near the workstations, chemicals being stored on shelves next to box's above head height there's a risk of falling on someone's head or next to them on the table and looks like there's a bin blocking the eyelash station down there to the right lol

    Looks like they could use some 5's training in that lab it's very cluttered especially for a chemical environment, safety & fire hazard aswell as risk of objects falling from a height, I assume is an education lab and not a processing one?

    Mine has two but I've fitted them myself 30Amp and 40Amp circuit breakers for the amplifiers,; Trip switch style fuses are also a thing but not factory fitted here's a link: https://m.aliexpress.com/item/32941968562.html?pid=808_0000_0131&spm=a2g0n.search-amp.list.32941968562&aff_trace_key=&aff_platform=msite&m_page_id=1061JlzV89sB9TZikiMsjkXUgqHKzJh3sLrf_319wqhOhwR9oOqZeYRn2eZpxQfsPp_u1547558291392

    Advice Buying: Amazon Echo

    I appreciate your input mate, I was sort of warey about the wifi sockets which i had purchased and when you said about it being possibe too; then I'm not taking the chance because there wouldn't be anyone there capable of acting fast Also can't see this seller making much profit with his wifi sockets πŸ˜€ check out the name "Hot Smart UK socket https://m.ebay.ie/itm/392167611644 I'm leaving the purchased sockets back and I'll stick to Genuine Amazon sockets moving forward just for my own peace of mind, as I may take risks with some things in my own home but not in someone else's, best to do the best possible job throughout. Excellent thanks mate, I'm purchasing the Hive from a shop here in Ireland on Thursday because I need it for Saturday and I don't get paid until Thursday so couldn't order until then, Local Argos have it aswell as electrical store, so it's good to know that there's an easy to follow guide in there and I've watched an unboxing YouTube video, My dad's not too familiar with LAN routers but if he wires in the receiver I'll show him the LAN router which he should understand no problem; and most likely finish my sentence for me ☺

    Advice Buying: Amazon Echo

    Hi all, I'm looking for advice from any of you whom have an Amazon Echo or Dot etc. I'm not purchasing for myself and I don't have one, I'll be purchasing one next week as a gift for my mother whom lives alone, She's 69 this year and although she doesn't have a smart phone, can't operate a computer and can't operate a tablet, She does have an internet connection in the home as part of her television subscription package, I though an Amazon Echo would be a good companion for setting reminders, asking questions without having to use a computer and perhaps get her a few bulbs for her birthday which Alexa could control. I have a few questions regarding the devices; I understand the Echo has a built in smart hub which can control compatible light bulbs and switches, Which makes me favour the Echo model, Questions: I will need to use a tablet or laptop in order to setup the device on to her wifi network, But will it work on its own after the initial setup? I suppose it needs to be linked with an Amazon account, so I'll need to setup an email address and Amazon account for her? Will the reminders work independently by just asking alexa to remind or Set alarm, Will music requests work without having to set up a playlist? I've watched a few YouTube videos of unboxing and stuff but nothing to say how it works independent of any other devices. Thanks for all potential information guys πŸ‘

    Advice Buying: Amazon Echo

    I was worried about the wifi sockets prior to purchasing as I was aware of some getting hot but I wasn't aware of them going on fireπŸ”₯ I thought they were fairly well manufactured from looking at the layout of the listing here and the price of them being almost Β£45.00 for a 4 pack which I suppose isint that expensive when divided down. Think I'll leave these back without opening them at all, I see there are Genuine Amazon sockets available; I'll get maybe two of those instead and be confident there not going to ignite. My dads going to drop down when I'm there and install it for me hes a retired lecturer of electrical technology basically teached apprentice electricians, so I suppose you could say professional install without the cost lol Once it's working though it doesn't really matter who fitted it I suppose, The boiler is kerosene and not Gas, had it been Gas I'd have went for the arrive and Install method to ensure compliance with gas regulations. There's only three wires on the existing time clock she has fitted, Thanks for saying about the sockets I'm going to change them then everything will be either Amazon, Philips of Hive branded should be safer.

    @WES180 also here's where I bought mine, Much cheaper than Amazon, If he won't ship to UK let me know because I will πŸ˜… get it off him with free shipping and send off in to you if needs be, https://www.freetv.ie/hdmi-modulator/

    Things I Don't Like

    I think most freeview tv's are Mpeg4 compatable though, I have one of these fitted in the attic for the cctv and one fitted in the living room for a blu-ray player, My setup has two of these modulators set to broadcast on different channels, to do this I've had to put in a sort of a coaxial loop So the terrestrial aerial comes in from the roof, It goes in to the aerial amplifier, Then out of the aerial amplifier straight down to the living room, Comes out of living room wall straight in to the Edision HDMI modulator, Out of the modulator and back in to the wall to go up to the attic Back in the attic then it goes in to the second Edision HDMI modulator, Out of the second Edision modulator in to the SLX 4 channel amplifier splitter where it's then fed to each of the four television's. My current setup is lacking power in the living room, I need to fit a 1 way signal booster to help the feed going back up to the attic then it will be 100% Now; In your case you would need a coaxial feed to go from the modulator to a splitter in the attic, An existing aerial socket in the living room could be used as a return feed from the modulator but you would lose any terrestrial television in that room because the original aerial became a return feed.

  20. Totally agree and as helpful as the forums are; the liked comments and encouragement from others has you creating install guides for items you don't really need at all, and doing things to the car monthly to keep up with the status,
