Useful Electrical Gadgets for House

Some of you may know about such electrical gadgets but some may not know.

The Selcon sensor (3 Ampere) produced by Kaga Inc. in Japan could sense day or night is useful if it's attached to an external light.

Come night time, the sensor will sense lesser light and it will automatically switch on that particular light. It will switch off once enough day time light is detected in the morning.

It comes in pairs and I got two, one for the porch light and one for a backlane light. Going at RM40 per pair.

Besides that, I got three units of Hager timer, made in France. Going at RM85 per unit.

This timer could be set to make certain lightings or electrical equipment (e.g. radio) to be switched on at or off after certain hours. That's like assuming someone's at home. It works like the Selcon sensor as you need to attach it to a particular light switch or power point.

Where did I buy such gadgets? It was from G&H Electrical Trading Sdn Bhd at Lorong Yap Hin, just a road behind RHB Bank Berhad, Jalan Pasar Branch.

The boss was known to my electrician. You need contacts to get stuff at a lower pricing.

The dry kitchen has taken its shape with the slim concrete table.

The neighbour at the back may have gotten a renovation contractor that is quite busy.

The Indonesian workers knocked the last piece of wall down but didn't build the brickwall fast enough to protect the house. The workers dug up a bit of the ground and laid some cement and disappeared for at least two days.

Such construction method may not be good to build a good wall / extension foundation.

Fantastic blog! I actually love how it's simple on my eyes as well as the data is well written. I am wondering how I may be notified whenever a new post has been made. I have subscribed to your rss feed which really should do the trick! Have a nice day!
