Hi guys, as part of my home security review, I want to get our security light working, illuminating the drive when someone enters.
I have an old light there (well, probably only a few years old) but it’s stopped working -
I’ve changed the bulb, no joy, and that’s about the extent of my knowledge. I’ve bought a whole new unit, but I’m looking for someone that knows what they’re doing to put it up.
I would imagine if you know what you’re doing it’s 10 minutes work. Any offers, or anyone know a good handyman (or woman) that can do this for me for a small fee?
That’s got to be one of the easiest jobs ever! If you find a decent handy man, let me know
Jaime could do it?? Well, u best ask him first!! haha!
i cant see the wireing in the pic? prob coz of the angle of the pic? in practice the wireing is meant to go into a loop below the entry point to the lamp so any rain water dont drain into the lamp and blow the lamp up, just i cant see anything there andy
p.s hows the bike it looks the bollox !
North London, Finchley area.
I’m sure it is, but I would probably electrocute myself as it’s not in my field of expertise
Cool, will do, or maybe he’ll see this thread
Loving the bike, thanks
If it helps, this is what I bought, which is almost an identical replacement -
could do it blindfolded
Im in N10 too :Whistling:
have u tried changing the bulb? most people put a new bulb in but dont slide the two nipples in properly so no light:ermm:
failing that, check that the power is going to the light (screwdriver voltage tester ± £2)
if it is then a new light fitting is needed. easy like changing a plug
Tried the bulb (even though the original looks fine) fairly sure it was seated properly, but no joy.
Multi-tester Screwdriver on it’s way from some good fellow in eBay, but god knows when that’ll get here.
N10, we’re practically neighbours!
Well, if you’ve got 30 minutes tomorrow evening or Wednesday, please let me know, I’ll gladly cover fuel and time
coolio, no probs. pm sent
Good call on getting someone in because you don’t know about it…
Electricity is not to be messed with! :w00t:
it is when its turned off…
Check me out!
Got my bike alarm fitted this morning too, so now I just need to set my security camera to upload to an FTP server and I’m about there
nice one. did u do it yourself or did jaime do it ???
How thick are those walls!!! Put your bike in the house!
You got your ground anchors in of course!!!
Hope you got a n.i.c. Certificate for the work done:w00t:
I did the light myself. There is now a security camera just to the left of that which e-mails me pictures when someone is on the drive.
I don’t have a ground anchor (rented house
) so I chain it to my car!
Yes, the alloys are locked on my car!
