BG Smart Socket Adaptor
In this video, we take a look at how you can do this and more using the BG smart socket and BG smart plug-in power adaptor. This range of smart home devices connects directly to Wifi (no hub required). Joe Robinson gives a rundown of how he's automated the start of his day, plus some of the other features in the smart plug and socket range such as the random switching feature - a visible deterrent to burglars.
BG Consumer Unit Range
Gary Hayers lifts the lid on the BG consumer unit range. BG has incorporated a number of features to make the electricians' installation easier. From a size fits all screwdriver terminal screw to a handy spirit level. The range covers a wide range of options from split load units to a recessed consumer unit.
BG WiFi Extender
With more of us working from home and better weather fast approaching ... extending your WiFi signal to the garden or other parts of the house so you can work or relax is essential. We've found a great solution in the shape of the BG Wifi extender socket. It's been around for a while and is a popular choice to extend wifi networks to weak zones within the house. We decided to see the BG wifi socket could also extend wifi outdoors. Installation is simple as it replaces an existing UK twin BS1363 twin socket, fitting to a 25mm back box. While lots of plug-in wifi extenders are available, opting a for hard-wired option means you still get to use the 13A outlets and it won't get disconnected by mistake. Available in a range of finishes to match deco - white, brushed stainless, chrome, black and an outdoor socket version. Pairing to a Wifi router is easy with using WPS setup. If you've installed this product or any other variants - let us know your thoughts in the comments section. The BG Wifi booster socket also includes a 2.1A USB charger socket.

BG Euro Modules
BG Euro modules are a great alternative to grid switch modules to create unique electrical wiring accessories. Available in a wide range of faceplate options from polished chrome to functional metal clad. Combining modules and functions reduces wall clutter and the number of wiring points. The BG range includes everything including USB modules, flex outlets and even a hotel key card switch.
Ring Final Circuits (ring main)
The ring final circuit (ring main) is a unique British socket wiring system. More complex to test and install compared to radial circuits. In this electrical tutorial, Joe Robinson explores how the current flows in the branches of a ring circuit. This video demonstrates why you can't use a 16A junction box on a 32A ring final circuit.
