thats awfully kind of you Sledge, I've seen the price of those and elected to twist the wires and tape them up with sellotape, the advantage with that is, If the joints spark or go red, you can see where the problem is,
good hey ?

Baz Arfur is so busy at the moment due to Brexit and Covid backlash, people are flocking to his corner shop for English goods, I'll tell him you're thinking about him,

Hello, I'm back!

As it happens, I had a security alarm company for several years.
I always used ADE comtrollers. Mainly the Optima.
I believe, the 'Optima Compact' is the one to go for now.

Tom, ADE were bought by Honeywell group. They are in Knowsley, on the industrial estate.
