Battery Carbon Monoxide Alarms Approved For Use In Caravans & Boats











Aico’s recently launched range of quality, cost-effective Lithium battery powered Carbon Monoxide (CO) alarms have now been tested and approved to BS EN 50291-2:2010 and are suitable for use in recreational vehicles and craft, including caravans and boats.

The new Aico range has been designed with sealed in Lithium batteries, overcoming the problem of battery removal. The battery unit is not only tamper proof, but being Lithium (rather than standard AA batteries), cannot be used to replace batteries in other household devices.

The alarms benefit from the proven CO sensor used across all Aico CO alarms, come with numerous fixing options for ceiling or wall mounting and an easy to use large Test button. The alarms themselves are compact and sleek, making them ideal for recreational vehicles and craft of all sizes..

Could Philips Latest LED Lighting Innovation Break Your marriage!

barelamps (1)

Philips has taken lighting control to a whole new level. Now you can program your home LED bulbs to dance when your sports team scores.

In fact you can set them to flash or change colors in response to all sorts of events such as stock price movements, weather forecasts, traffic reports, social media messages, emails or whatever alert you want.

It works through the latest twist to an app called Hue that Philips introduced last fall. Hue lets people use their smartphones or tablet computers to turn lights on or off, change their color or brightness, set them on timers or to give them other such instructions.

The new version, called Hue 1.1, responds to more than mere mortals. It also takes instructions from the Internet. Thus, any sort of digital alert or news feed can act as a trigger, Philips explains in a press release. You also need a special WiFi box, available through Apple retail outlets.

LEDs – light emitting diodes – are rudimentary semiconductors and thus lend themselves to digital control, adding to a list of attributes that includes tremendous energy efficiency compared to conventional incandescent bulbs.

But is this a good thing for marriages? Imagine the romantic dinner. Blackberries, iPhones, television all switched off. Dining room lights low. Candles flickering. Conversational tones soft and understanding. Then the husband erupts into paroxysms of woop-woop joy as the lamp in the corner flashes with Manchester United’s latest goal. Or with the schizophrenic New York Jets’ latest quarterback signing..

Dimplex Delivers Dining Comfort At Oxford University


When an OxfordUniversity college  needed to improve comfort levels in a  hard-to-heat dining hall, Dimplex’s commercial heating experts came up with an efficient solution to keep students warm year-round.

By combining a fast warm-up from powerful fan heaters with an air curtain to minimise heat loss from the doorways, the Dimplex solution quickly raises room temperature to comfortable levels and easily retains the warmth for the duration of the hall’s use.

The dining hall at St Antony’s College was built in the late Sixties with large singleglazed windows, low levels of insulation and a high ceiling. The hall is used daily for lunch and dinner and also frequently in the evening for a variety of other functions. It’s a large facility in the middle of the site and an important focus in the students’ daily life, so it’s vital that it remains in commission..
