More power! From garden mowers and tools to barbeques, patio heating, decorative heating, and music, the need to draw power outdoors is ever-increasing: often a simple socket outlet is just not going to be enough, but you have to balance your solutions with the customers’ budget. So, look at options for in-line connectors and junction boxes as well, to reach the far end of the yard or garden or wall-mounted enclosures with multiple sockets protected inside. Just be sure they offer the right IP protection for the job and have branded quality you can rely on. As ever, a chain is only ever as good as its weakest link.

application uses will call for “Active” SRCDs, meaning that users have to manually re-set the device to restore power, after checking over the equipment they are using. If control and energy saving when using, say, patio heaters are a consideration, why not fit an outdoor wi-fi controlled weather-protected fused spur? The user can simply program ON and OFF times or switch ON or OFF via their mobile phone. Alternatively choose Timeguard’s new IP66 weatherproof in-line WiFi controller, installed within range of the home router to extend app-based control to outdoor devices, using the free, global Tuya Smart App and voice control via Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant.

IP55 options have joined the IP65 boxes

with 2 or 4-gang training sockets.

Use Alexa and Hey Google voice control with Timeguard’s IP66 in-line Wi-Fi connector.
