Hamilton Litestat’s marketing manager, Gavin Williams, discusses the company’s latest smart wireless controls and accessories to get lighting control and power to your garden safely
At this time of year, home-owners can be encouraged to take control and brighten up their garden with electrical wiring accessories that are primed for all weather conditions! Wireless controls are popular in the home and now you can control your garden lighting, electric gates, garage doors or even their water feature, all at the touch of a button.
Hamilton’s Air Wireless Switching system controls up to four individual circuits. Each 10-amp circuit can be wired to a different outdoor electrical feature, allowing it to be switched on and off within a 250-metre range with a convenient hand-held key fob. The system can also have a timed function, which is especially handy if you’re going away or have a device such as a water feature pump that needs regular use.
The Hamilton Air Wireless Switching kit comes with a surface-mounted switch plate that can be located anywhere indoors. The clean and neat design of the switch plate means it has no connecting wires, so looks sleek and doesn’t result in any disruption to the interior decor. The system is compatible with all Hamilton Air accessories, has an IP56 rating and is suited for all weather conditions for year- round control.
However, if the property doesn’t yet have garden lighting set up or electric gates fitted, you’ll need to start with waterproof wiring accessories to get power to the equipment.
Hamilton’s Elemento range is specifically designed for outdoor requirements, meeting IP66 standards. The range includes socket outlets, switches, connection units and enclosures that have all been designed with a lockable yet easy-to-open latch and scientifically-formulated gel seal that ensures integrity and protection from water, dust and small particles.
Following a recent design refresh, the Elemento range of switches now have a larger, more contemporary and on-trend look that also makes them more robust for outdoor use.
The easy-to-install accessories have a polycarbonate housing that is robust and impact resistant while remaining stylish. With a 10-year guarantee, it can withstand hot and cold extremes and will not discolour, fade or crack under the elements, keeping your outside space neat and orderly.
Together, Hamilton’s outdoor wiring accessories and controls can help bring power to your garden and make it easier and more convenient to control your electricals, which is perfect for bringing your garden to life this spring.
