Sesame Smart Lock Accommodates New Technology

Palo Alto, CA, April 21, 2015 — /EPR ELECTRONICS NEWS/ — Sesame – the world’s first instant smart lock – is now one of the hottest projects on Kickstarter, which has raised more than one million dollars since launch. Currently, more than 6,000 supporters have backed the project.

Sesame allows users to lock and unlock their doors using the Sesame app on their smartphones. It is the only smart lock that syncs the movement of the lock with the phone, providing exact control of the angle to which the lock turns.

Jerming Gu, the inventor of Sesame, said he wanted to bring the joy of technology to regular people with affordable prices. Sesame is also designed to accommodate the fast changing nature of technology.

In deed, the consumer electronics technology changes year by year. Any users of consumer electronic products – whether it’s a lock or a phone – they will be forced to upgrade the hardware often.

Here are some examples:
1) iPhone 4 (Bluetooth 3.0) is not compatible with iPhone 4S (Bluetooth 4.0);
2) RFID (clipper bus card) is not compatible with NFC (Apple Pay/some credit card);
3) z-wave (most old digital locks) is not compatible with Zigbee (newer digital locks);

“You might want to have a new phone every year but you may not want to construct the door every year just for a newer digital lock,” said Gu.

That’s the problem Sesame is trying to solve.

Now Bluetooth 4.2 is coming, Gu just swapped to the new version 3 Bluetooth chip in mass production.

“Also, the long-distance wireless charging technology is about to hit the market, I feel everything is changing too fast,” said Gu.

With five-patented design, Sesame works with just about any deadbolt in the world. Users can install it in seconds, without replacing existing lock or removing anything. Current model is optimized for US/Canada/northern Europe Markets.

CANDY HOUSE also offers optional access point, which connects Sesame to the Internet when plugged into any nearby outlet. It lets users control Sesame wherever they are.

With Internet connection capability, users can allow guests in remotely. They can also control who has access and when. To ensure safety, the Sesame app also sends out a notification whenever the door opens or closes.

About CANDY HOUSE
Founded and developed by Stanford University students, CANDY HOUSE, Inc. is a candy store that sells dreams, putting the joy and surprise of innovative technology in the hands of consumers, just like candy. It is also a design house, developing and manufacturing products that inspire a minimal lifestyle. It launched its first product – Sesame, the world’s first instant smart lock – in February 2015.

Stanford Student Entrepreneur Raised $800K on Kickstarter

Palo Alto, CA, April 02, 2015 — /EPR ELECTRONICS NEWS/ — Stanford student Jerming Gu, founder of CANDY HOUSE Inc., raised more than $800,000 dollars after his product launch on Kickstarter. Sesame – the world’s first instant smart lock – reached its funding goal in nine hours when first introduced. Currently, nearly 5,000 supporters have backed the project.

Sesame allows users to lock and unlock their doors using the Sesame app on their smartphones. It is the only smart lock that syncs the movement of the lock with the phone, providing exact control of the angle to which the lock turns.

Gu is a mechanical engineering master candidate from Stanford University. Originally from Taiwan, Gu is someone who usually thinks outside the box. Disruptor, troublemaker, entrepreneur, as he calls himself.

“There has got to be smarter ways to live our life,” Gu said.

Gu said he got the idea for smart lock due to his experience living in Asia where technology is relatively less developed.

With five-patented design, Sesame works with just about any deadbolt in the world. Users can install it in seconds, without replacing existing lock or removing anything. Current model is optimized for US/Canada/northern Europe Markets.

CANDY HOUSE also offers optional access point, which connects Sesame to the Internet when plugged into any nearby outlet. It lets users control Sesame wherever they are.

Sesame – smart lock that changes the world

Palo Alto, CA, March 27, 2015 — /EPR ELECTRONICS NEWS/ — Sesame, the world’s first instant smart lock, raised more than seven times of its funding goal on Kickstarter. Launched on Kickstarter on Feb. 25, 2015, Sesame has raised more than $760,000 from backers all over the world.

The smart lock, which allows users to control their door with a smartphone app, attracted thousands.

Connected to users’ phone via Bluetooth, Sesame allows users full control of the lock, even to the exact angle a lock turns. With the optional Wi-Fi Access Point that connects Sesame to the Internet, users don’t even have to be physically near Sesame. The remote control feature allows people to send access to their friends and keep track of whether the door’s locked wherever they are.

With five-patented design, Sesame works with just about any deadbolt in the world. Users can install it in seconds, without replacing existing lock or removing anything. Current model is optimized for US/Canada/Singapore/Norway/Sweden Markets.

With market of Internet of Things (IoT) expanding rapidly, backers are turning more and more attention to smart gadgets that make their life easier. Founded by two students from Stanford University, CANDY HOUSE Inc. designs and manufactures products that inspire a minimal yet joyful lifestyle.

“People will carry less and less things when leave the house, that’s the trend,” said Jerming Gu, founder of Candy House.

Wallet, keys, and cell phone. People used to bring three things when they leave home. Now walltet is gradually replaced by keys. The Starbucks app pays your green tea frappuccino, you Venmo money to a friend for getting late-night pizza, you hop on a Uber without worrying about cab fare or tip.

“With Sesame, the next thing to disappear are the keys,” said Gu.

LED Recessed Ceiling 4 Inch Dimmable Can Lights Provide the Upside to Down Lighting

LEDtronics, Inc., with more than 30 years of leadership in innovative LED lighting solutions, announces the newest member to its series of high-brightness, energy-efficient retrofit LED Recessed Downlights. The RDL32-4-12W series are Energy Star and UL/cUL listed, dimmable ceiling can-style downlights ideal for indoor use in architectural/décor lighting and commercial applications: hospitals & medical facilities, hotels and resorts. They only use 12 Watts of energy and can replace halogen bulbs up to 75 watts — a tremendous energy savings of up to 80%.

The RDL32-4-12W series fits 4-inch ceiling can openings. They come with pigtail wires connected to a quick-disconnect connector attached to a standard E26 Edison male screw base connector that can be detached and hard-wired into a two-wire ceiling can fixture connection. A GU24 base connector option is available for qualified customers. RDL32-4-12W has a white color body and lip ring. It has a softly frosted, white-diffused, flat-precision, polycarbonate lens that directs light in a wide 90 degree floodlight illumination pattern, while providing high-brightness of 910 to 980 lumens, depending on LED light Color. The RDL32-4-12W series operates on a voltage input of 120VAC, offering long-lasting durability and easy drop-in installation in existing standard 26mm Edison screw-base ceiling cans.

These new state-of-the-art LED recessed dimmable downlights are available in three white LED color temperatures: Warm White 3000K to 3200K, Natural White 4000K to 4500K and Pure White 5000K to 5500K range, akin to halogen white (other color temperatures available for qualified applications). As well, it boasts outstanding color fidelity with a CRI greater than 80 that enhances color nuances. In addition, these recessed downlights maintain 70 percent or greater of LED lumens at 40,000 hours of 24/7 operation — a lifespan many times longer than the equivalent halogen or other incandescent bulbs!

Because LEDs have no filament, their solid-state design renders them impervious to shock, vibration, frequent switching and environmental extremes. These ROHS-compliant UL/cUL listed dimmable retrofit LED recessed downlights have no harmful mercury or other toxic elements like CFL bulbs; and unlike incandescent bulbs, LEDs do not emit large amounts of heat, and little to no ultraviolet or infrared light. This makes them perfect for use in museums, hospitals, offices or areas where heat and UV radiation might degrade the surroundings (such as illuminating valuable artwork, wine cellars or food service areas). The fact that they run remarkably cool also means they greatly reduce building air-conditioning load on energy.

These economical, high-quality 4-inch LED recessed dimmable downlights are perfect in non-wet outdoor or dimming indoor flood lighting applications such as ceiling-can downlight fixtures as security and emergency lights, general/architectural and landscape lighting, retail store, display case fixtures and cabinet lighting, sign spot lighting, OEM equipment lighting, bio-medical and medical applications, museums or theatrical-effects lighting. Since LED lights are much more energy efficient than halogens and other filament lamps, these LED recessed downlights are perfect operating with an alternative or renewable energy resource such as solar or wind power in cold or warm environments.

In addition, these LED downlights are Energy Star listed, making them eligible for rebate and tax incentive programs.

The RDL32-4-12W LED recessed dimmable downlights come with a LEDtronics 5-year warranty, and are available through LEDtronics distributors. Retail price is $29.95 each. Quantity discounts are available to qualified distributors. Availability is stock to 4-6 weeks for large order requirements.

Electrical Counter Has Fantasia’s For Lifting The Dimmer Control

The Electrical Counter has aimed to build a portfolio of products that deal with all the possible electrical requirements that occur in the modern electrical supply market. This has meant ranges of products, which are specific to a specific usage, are used and then installed and not something that may just do the job. The Electrical Counter has also tried to source these specific products in a range of finishes so that the consumer can get something that does the job but also fits in architecturally with the building and surrounds of the installation.

Fantasia is a company that has developed a series of ceiling fans which are great in situ and have developed a very smart brushed chrome speed controller that is perfect for the overall control of the unit. The Electrical Counter is pleased to be able to supply these brushed chrome controllers and the full range of Fantasia ceiling fans. The ceiling fan is an ideal option to reduce the temperature in any room when a full air conditioning system is either, not available, or not possible to install. It is also a great fashion statement and gives the room a feel of the Deep South of the U S A. There are a multitude of different designs of the fans some of which include a light fitting and some which do not, there is also a full range of different designs and differing materials of manufacture so it is a case of picking the one that fits the personal design required.

The switch and controllers of such fans are very important as they require a stepped speed controller in order to provide a cooling which is in keeping with the rooms requirements. The Electrical Counter stresses that the control of ceiling fans must be carried out using the correct type of controller and not a standard dimmer switch, which are totally unsuitable for the job. To this purpose The Electrical Counter are pleased to supply the Fantasia Fan Speed Controller and also the Fantasia Fan Speed Controller and Light Dimmer both of which are supplied in a brushed Chrome finish. These units are very attractive and really fit in to most rooms in the house. The brushed chrome finish is one, which fits both modern and old buildings and will look good throughout all the rooms, which it is likely to be used in.

The Electrical Counter notes that the Fantasia Fan Controller uses a 3 step system, which should provide more than adequate control of the ceiling fan. The brushed chrome switches provide an easy circular action and fit nicely on a brushed chrome face plate, it is noted that the rule is one fan per controller and the fans cannot be ganged together. The twin switch which also has a dimmer switch attached allows control of the fan and the lights from a central control. Electrical Counter offers a full range of products and is pleased to offer any advice required for the purposes of installing the Fantasia range of products.

The Electrical Counter Does Its Bit Towards Switching Off The Recession

The Electrical Counter has set up its business based on providing the best quality electrical equipment for the electrical installation trade and retail customers at the best possible prices. The recession has hit the building industry exceptionally hard and it is sometimes difficult to see an end to the problems that this situation brings to the market place. However The Electrical Counter have set themselves the target of reducing their prices to such a level that will be able to supply the electrical industry at a price that is attractive to the small and large installations that are beginning to develop in the country. To do this they are working extremely closely with the best manufacturers in the electrical switch and socket business so that the aims and aspirations of the installers and end users can be fully achieved.

To this effect The Electrical Counter is supplying promoting the B G Nexus range of polished chrome electrical sockets at around 20 to 25 % of its original selling price. The typical Nexus metal polished chrome 2 gang 13 amp switched socket is selling for £3.89 per unit instead of £19.87 per unit, less than 20% of its original price. This is an ideal socket for the large office or public service building including schools and hospitals but it is also ideal for the family home and the price is such that even a cosmetic change can be considered worthwhile. The Nexus metal polished chrome 2 gang 13 amp switched socket is only one of a range of sockets in the polished chrome set and 1gang 13 Amp switched sockets can be sourced as well as a full range of shaving sockets, oven and electrical hob fittings and other fittings. This range of polished chrome sockets can be fitted throughout the building wherever required safely and securely. Electrical Counter also supply the BG Nexus polished chrome 1gang 5amp round pin switched socket for the set of table or pedestal lamp systems, these sockets can be linked together to give a ring main just for the lamp circuit which can be operated from a central switch. These sockets are excellent in appearance and very safe to use, they do retain their original appearance quite easily and will withstand the typical heavy traffic and knocks and bumps which happen regularly in a large operation or a household environment.

The full Nexus polished chrome range can be used throughout a large installation as they manufacture a switch or socket for almost every occasion and the price reductions are reflected throughout the range. The Electrical Counter is extremely pleased to be able to supply the full range of the BG Nexus polished chrome switches and sockets and can supply them either in individual quantities or in bulk and will do so with a delivery pattern to suit the requirements of the customer. Electrical Counter has a great deal of experience in the business and is only too willing to pass on that advice wherever possible so that customer and supplier can work together to the very best effect.

Lamp Post Electrical Switch From A Distance

Lamp Post Electrical have realised that one of the fastest growing areas of electrical control is that of the wireless electrical control systems and are pleased to promote the Wisedim Kit – A 4 Channel dimmable wireless switching system. Wireless switching systems are likely to become a major force in the home and in industry over the next few years as the different option become more obvious and the market develops the switches and controls, which will accept a wireless control signal. The Wisebox switching system can already control switching of lights, garage doors and water features as well as a host of other options around the home and garden and Lamp Post Electrical has been very pleased with their supply of this item and the Wisedim Kit is a good extension of the market range.

The Wisedim Kit is as the name suggests a wireless dimmer system and contains a receiver that uses 4 channels each independent of the next and rated at 700 watt each, which are all capable of dimming a separate lighting circuit. The kit is easy to install and can therefore act as the perfect replacement to your traditional dimmer switches around the home. The system has the ability to remember the previous setting so when switched on again will return the lighting system to the previous levels of light. The system can also be used as a switching system on any of the independent channels so that it can be used with LED or fluorescent lighting fittings, which are not dimmable. Lamp Post Electrical has been particularly pleased with the remote key fob which is used to control the system as this is easy to carry and very easy to operate and has the back up of a wall mounted switch with seven switches of which four operate the individual circuits and the other three work on the functions of two circuits on, four circuits on or all circuits off.

Lamp Post Electrical have noted that the wisebox kits allow a simple dimming system that can be operated from the comfort of the armchair and will allow a completely different approach to lighting within the home. This system now allows the user to use light as a decoration as well as a system of being able to see what you are doing. Certainly the system can be changed from a reading lighting requirement to a comfortable level for listening to music or watching the TV but now it is possible to use coloured lights to paint the room so that the ambience meets the time of the day or the mood of the user. This may sound a little strange but a person’s mood changes during the day and it has been found that the strong active lighting systems that match the early morning activeness recedes during the day as the person’s body prepares for rest and the lighting systems change accordingly then Wisedim allows this to be achieved from the armchair.

Lamp Post Electrical have been delighted with the Wisedim system and encourages the reader to look at their web site to get a full view of the system and if there are any queries to send them an email or give them a call and work out just what can be achieved.

My Carpet Pal Rotovac 360i Turning Heads Everywhere!

The carpet cleaning industry has really come a long way since the invention of the first hand held carpet cleaner in 1956 invented by Mr. Harry Rench, CEO and founder of Rench Manufacturing Company. The first designs had some very evident limitations that Mr. Rench tried to fix and improve the drycleaner’s for carpeting. The vacuum had a very nice appealing look to it and was equipped with an electric cord. Most people at the time couldn’t afford to buy these newly invented cleaning machines and Mr. Rench rented the cleaning machines out to people wanting to clean their carpets. It was like a dream come true for most people with carpeting in their homes.

Over the years, the carpet cleaning machines has gotten a lot better and with the technology of the twentieth century; Mr. Rench’s ideas of carpet cleaning has taken off to a whole new level of carpet cleaning. One of the concepts that really helped the carpet cleaning industry become the great industry that it is today is the advent of the portable extractors and later the truck-mounts. Prochem industries are one of the major leaders today in the technology of carpet cleaning using the truck mounting delivery system. Practically, all of the carpet cleaning professionals today use truck-mounts with the jet spraying system.

Mr. Steve Allison invented the first carpet cleaning wand which he referred to in his patent applications to a method and apparatus for cleaning and rinsing carpets. This was actually invented in 1991 and assigned with the United States Patent Office. Mr. Allison invented a wand that could actually clean and dry the carpet at the same time which was really unbelievable at the time. The concept of the wand was like washing your clothes and drying them in the same machine; it was truly another big breakthrough in the carpet cleaning industry. The wand actually helped to revolutionize the carpet cleaning industry and it is still a major force of the carpeting business today still while we talk at this moment.

Since the invention of the carpet cleaning wand; several companies have industrialized the wands – making them lighter and with better water jets. Prochem has one of the best carpet cleaning wands today on the market with their six (6) jet titanium light weight wand which sell for about $1,299.00 retail. These new revolutionary carpet cleaning wands are a carpet cleaners dream come true. Now there’s a new kid on the block and it was invented by Mr. Cliff Monson called the Rotovac 360i and the Hyrdamaster RX-20. These rotary giants have taken carpet cleaning and steam cleaning to an entire new level in the cleaning business.

The Rotovac carpet cleaning machine is an excellent tool for carpet cleaning. The machine delivers effortless, self-propelled cleaning with the touch of a hand. The rotary heads thoroughly deep clean carpet with hundreds of multi-directional movements. The 360i is light weight at only 39 pounds and super easy to operate.

Metal Black Nickel Electrical Sockets And Switches For A Perfect Finish

Electrical Counter is pleased to promote the BG Nexus range of electrical sockets and switches for use both in the house and in the office or work place. The company is particularly pleased to be able to stock a complete range of fittings than cover virtually every eventuality of usage. The BG Nexus range has been developed to provide a very attractive design finish that will stand out most impressively when fitted into the décor of the building. The Metal Black Nickel finish is a very subtle colour and whilst distinctive it is not an “In your face” finish and will tone into not only a modern finished building but will not be wasted in less contemporary surroundings. The finish of all the metal fascia’s is such that they are a polished smooth surface which gives very clean lines and simple finish and they all match a basic standard design with no sharp edges but all rounded corners and sides.

Electrical Counter notes that the system is an ideal one to be used where there is a requirement to keep the whole place clean and within the bounds. The materials of the metal surface are such that they retain their initial properties over a long period and do not deteriorate with time. They are simple and when cleaned with bacterial wipes will remove all bugs that may be transferred to them and they pick up less bugs in the first place as the smooth surface is less attractive to their collection. This makes them ideal for usage in the kitchen or office and they are quite acceptable in places where there is a serious chance of bug and disease transfer.

The full BG range of switches and sockets have allowed the BG Nexus brand to become a major range of products and Electrical Counter is delighted to be able to stock the full range available for delivery on an immediate call off basis. The Metal Black Nickel range is at present a most attractive range not only because of their design but also because of their price. At present Electrical Counter is pleased to be able to offer the whole range at vastly discounted prices, which makes their usage competitive with some of the cheapest models on sale. Some typical examples show the Metal Black Nickel dimmer switch on sale at £9.99 instead of the usual £31.51 whilst the simple Black Nickel light switch is on sale for £2.91 against a usual price of £14.41. The overall cost of the sockets and switches being in the range 25% to 33% of the original cost.

Electrical Counter have an excellent web site in which all the different ranges of Nexus metal switches can be seen and if there are any further queries the experience of a well trained staff is available by telephone to answer any queries. Electrical Counter pride themselves on the fact that whilst the internet warehouse provides good quality materials at cheap prices it has also retained the experience essential to run this business and to make sure that it is available to company employee and customer alike.

Stainless Steel Gets Switched On With The Electrical Counter

The market for electrical switches and sockets grows larger each day and it is now a possible to change the appearance of the electrical service systems within a house or office regularly without breaking the bank. Electrical Counter has developed a full market range of switches and sockets to meet what is likely to be an ever increasing market place. The company has developed their Internet marketing system to be able to supply the fullest range of electrical equipment at a moment’s notice off the shelf and Electrical Counter is pleased to be able to meet almost all requirements at a time to suit the customer. The electrical market demands instant attention with orders required tomorrow and quality of the highest order and safety standards to match. Electrical Counter can deal with all of these as a matter of routine and has also been able to develop prices which match any company and are usually cheaper. Some of the latest prices for switches and sockets are only 30% of what they were a short time ago.

The Stainless Steel range is one of the ranges that have gained from this reduction in prices and Electrical Counter is pleased to have been able to negotiate with their manufacturer’s rates, which are a great advantage to the industry, the customer and the supplier. The stainless steel ranges are quite interesting and do give a completely new outlook on the design and installation of the electrical service systems. The stainless can be of a brushed steel type of finish which looks good and lasts particularly well, it handles well and the fitting is easy and there is even a range of screwless face plates which have nothing to break the face plate but the rounded switch toggle. There is also stainless steel of a semi polished or plain finish, which again look good and provide a different appearance. The brushed steel switches are particularly good for their resilience as they will last for a long time without any deterioration. The attributes of stainless steel are many and obvious and now metals can be used safely in switches and sockets the options are endless.

Electrical Counter considers the stainless steel range as ideal for the office and workplace as the finished effect goes particularly well with the latest designs of the modern office. The Nexus Metal switches and sockets fit well into the dado rail system which allows the service to be placed just where required for easy access and shortest cable links. Appearance is everything these days and the quickest way to change the appearance in a building is to change the fitments that are present. The electrical service fitments from switches and sockets to data and telephone points are easy to change and these will make a great deal of difference to the overall view of the building. No decorating is required and the whole operation will be carried out in a very limited time but the results can be present for years to come.

Lamp Post Electrical Has The Gate Opening Answer

Lamp Post Electrical now stock the excellent Came range of electric gate opening systems, which have made such an impression on the market place. These units are of excellent quality and allow the house entry gates to be used instead of being an ever open adornment to the property. Lamp Post Electrical is particularly pleased to be able to supply the Came Frog AE-P24 Kit which offers the complete underground fitting kit for a pair of swing gates. This particular unit offers the ability to open a pair of gates up to 3.5 metre wide for each leaf using a 24v DC motor. The easy opening and closing of gates ensures maximum usage and they will always be kept closed which gives security within the property and privacy as the front garden can in many cases now become an area which can be used without being
overlooked.

Lamp Post Electrical are delighted with the operational system of the Came electric gates and the silent running of the gates when opening and closing them is such that there is no possible annoyance to the family or neighbours. The Came Frog AE-P24 Kit is an underground kit which means that the swinging operating units are fitted into the ground at the outside end of each gate and the gate is mounted on top of the unit. The advantage of this is that the unit is particularly neat and tidy in its appearance or perhaps that should be non-appearance as all the operating mechanism is below ground and a flat top plate to the unit is all that is visible to the outside world. This installation provides the basis for a good reliable set up which will last for years.

Gate operation takes about 16 seconds so that it is slow enough for pedestrians to get out of the way although there is obvious safety cut outs if there is a problem and also release mechanisms if required. The typical opening is 90 degrees but this can be extended to 130 degrees with a suitable adaption of electronics and mechanism. The system is a robust one and the gate mechanisms can support gates up to a weight of 400kg for each leaf of the gate, which allows the installation of some very substantial gates.

Lamp Post Electrical – http://www.lamppostelectrical.co.uk – have worked hard to get the range right and Came are an excellent company who provide a good quality product which has been greatly enhanced by the Frog electronic control systems. The advantages of the operation of the Came Frog system of underground fitted gates is that they can be used from a distance to open and close them at will with the Came gate remote, which is ideal for the car driver arriving or leaving the premises.

It also allows the home owner to let in visitors from inside the house either by car with a double gate opening or by pedestrian access with a single gate opening. Lamp Post Electrical is proud to be able to stock such an excellent range of products, which will enhance any property to which they are installed.

The Electrical Counter Promote The Advantages Of Elnur Storage Heaters

The Electrical Counter have built up an excellent range of products to be supplied directly via the internet from their excellent web site, the base of the business is as the name suggests, anything that the electrical trade might require usually, off the shelf. If the product required is not obvious on the web site then an excellent call service will establish whether and when it can be delivered. This is certainly the case with the Elnur Storage Heaters, which The Electrical Counter company is very pleased to supply from its standard in-stock store. This resurgent business in storage heaters has developed because of the inspired development of the latest Elnur Storage Heaters. These Elnur Storage Heaters are now very efficient in energy usage from a low cost electrical source and they come in a range of sizes from 1.7KW to 3.4 KW power rating and also in a range of manual or automatic controls.

The Elnur Storage Heaters are of a superb slim line design that fit very well in any standard room and the small size of the units mean that they do not take up the whole of the wall space. The controls are easily accessible and the units acne work as a stand-alone unit or fixed to link in with other storage heaters as part of a fully controlled central heating system. The Electrical Counter is delighted with the quality of the Storage Heaters and the complete range of manual and automatic units that are available which enable the installer such a wide range of options. The safety systems are such that the Storage Heaters have automatic safety power cut outs when the grills, where the heat is released, are covered with clothes or other items. The Electrical Counter supply Storage Heaters where there is an automatic control system on the heat input to the heat sink so that just the right amount of heat is input into the storage heater for later usage. Elnur have developed the range of Storage Heaters to meet all occasions and the sophistication levels are now so good that they heat input on the best units is controlled so that it takes account of the weather so that heat is not wasted in periods of warm weather or left short in periods of excessive cold. If this is added to a full central control system the maximum flexibility in heating control is possible, Hyco Water Heaters are also another great addition to the system in order to maximise your homes overall efficiency.

The Electrical Counter is pleased to note that these units fit extremely well in conditions where there is a surfeit of electrical power from a solar panel system where the daytime electricity is basically the property of the householder during the day and hence is free.

The market is ever increasing and the boiler fuel systems are not only suffering price rises from the energy suppliers but things like gas checks are now advised annually for house owners and are imposed by law on the house rental business. The Electrical Counter notes that the costs of each system when all the equipment costs, energy costs and service costs are taken into account are very close. The Electrical Counter welcomes any enquiries on the use of Elnur Storage Heaters.

Electrical Counter Now Can Supply Elnur Storage Heaters Of Great Versatility

It is fascinating how the increases and changes in technology can turn a system that seemed to have passed its heyday into a completely different and thriving system. The Elnur storage heaters systems are one of the most surprising elements in the distribution of energy used in the heating of household residences. Central Heating became just that, with a central boiler feeding a number of satellite radiators to supply heat throughout the house. Gas boilers became particularly cost effective due to the low price of gas compared to oil and electricity and bottled or tankered gases and the gas boilers have become very energy efficient units. Electrical Counter remembers when the storage radiator started as a pile of refractory bricks in a box which were heated by electrical heaters overnight and slowly released their heat as the cooled down. The system was effective to a certain level but temperature control and cost efficiency were limited.

The systems that Electrical Counter supply today have completely changed all this and the latest systems can be all singing and all dancing with a great temperature control and heat on demand. The heat input into the Elnur units which Electrical Counter supply is still carried out overnight to take care of using power in the low cost period that runs from about midnight until the early hours. The latest Elnur Heaters are excellently insulated with modern materials and heat losses from wastage are minimal. The control of heat release has now changed out of all proportion and the units are often fitted with the latest fan systems which control heat release but also allow a quick heat release. The days when a person comes home to a cold house and had to wait for hours to get warm have long since gone. The usage of a dynamic storage heater has now allowed the systems to be fitted to digital programmers so that the whole house can be warmed according to the demands of the users. This is a far cry from the system where the heaters were heated at night and slowly released the heat during the full day at a steady slow rate. The Electrical Counter systems encompass the whole house and the programming entails a full central heating system which can match the best gas heated systems without any of the waste gas products and flue problems associated with such units.

Stanley CCS Completes Security And Fire Installations For Crawley Borough Council

Stanley Convergent Security Solutions (Stanley CSS) has completed the security and fire system installations for Crawley Borough Council’s Town Hall and local Football Stadium.

A comprehensive CCTV system has been installed across both the six storey Town Hall located in the town centre and at Broadfield Stadium, one of the finest non-league stadiums in the country with a capacity of 4,996 and home to Crawley Town Football Club. The CCTV was installed as a crime prevention measure and to ensure the safety of Council staff and visitors to the sites. In addition, Stanley was also awarded the Fire Alarm and Voice Evacuation system contract for the Stadium.

Alan Lagden, Building Services Manager at Crawley Borough Council, researched the CCTV market extensively before deciding on Stanley to undertake the installations: “I chose Stanley because of their reputation. I have received a very good service from them and am impressed by the excellent Stanley engineer who attends our site. We wanted consistency from the outset and that included having the same engineer attend site wherever possible. He is now familiar with us and knows where he is going without us having to spend an hour showing someone around the site with each visit.

“The additional works and upgrades we have had since having the system have been undertaken by Stanley who have kept me fully appraised of all the work being done and carried it out in a professional manner, using high spec equipment. One of the most important things was that the work has not interfered with our daily business”

Stanley CSS understands the value and strength of a local service team backed by global resources, with six office locations in the UK and over 75 locations throughout North America and Europe. Stanley focuses daily on delivering exceptional and consistent operational excellence in the five customer touch points: account management, installation, service, monitoring and billing. The company continually measures its performance against these touch points, identifying areas for improvement and providing clear, precise instructions for reaching each and every goal set.

An integral part of this customer offering includes a variety of finance options, including Stanley’s Flexible Finance package which enabled Crawley Borough Council to move forwards with these latest security and fire installations. This facility provides a low start to the agreement (which also includes all software upgrades and maintenance over the course of the ten year deal) with payments spread throughout its term.

SpyTown Going Green and Strong to Celebrate Earth Day

SpyTown.com, a premier retailer for all security needs and prevention with a variety of video security systems available is going green and remaining so with the celebration of Earth Day.

SpyTown, known for their impressive array of security equipment and assisting schools, businesses, and home owners in security is brining further light to the topic of environmental choices. The company has taken a proactive stance by making conscious business decisions to make a difference and protect the environment in any way possible. With the quickly approaching celebration of Earth Day on April 22nd, many are reminded of how precious the environment is, and how “Going Green” may help preserve it.

SpyTown has maintained a “Go Green” mentality by deciding to no longer print and mail out catalogs in an effort to reduce waste. In addition, flyers and promotions have been printed with soy-based ink products rather than the typical petroleum which are known to give off VOC’s (volatile oranic compounds, pollutants to the environment). Forest Stewardship Council, (FSC), certified paper has also been used rather than the standard traditional paper. FSC is a not-for-profit organization that was established to promote the responsible management of the world’s forests.

“The environment is something of great concern,” shares Sales Director, Howard Geschwind, “At SpyTown we have made it a point to make an effort to “Go Green” and maintain such a consistency in hopes to lessen detrimental effects on the rainforest, wildlife, and the environment as a whole. By making these small changes it is believed it can help in a big way.”
