Achieving brightly lit rooms is the primary focus for most homeowners. However, there are several options that provide bright lighting but more importantly comfort, style, and aesthetics.
LED Downlights in Perth are the most popular new type of lighting. Placing downlights carefully in a home allows for even and bright lighting with very low running costs.
Regular downlights, however, have a PC diffuser to hide the LED chips. These give a very wide spread of light which is good for certain applications but unfortunately, they have a lot of glare which shines directly into your eyes which causes eye strain and discomfort, especially if you have 4, 6, or even 8 downlights in a room.

Smart devices are set to work on the 2.4 GHz frequency and will not connect and work on 5GHz. Even though 2.4 GHz carries less information, it has better range than the 5 GHz frequency band. The problem, however, is that many of the newer models of routers come with simultaneous 5 GHz and 2.4 GHz bands, called a Dual Band Router, and the 5GHz is quicker and tries to connect to the devices, thereby preventing them from connecting.
In order to enable linking, a seperate 2.4 GHz band is required, or the 5 GHz band needs to be temporarily turned off while linking. During the linking process, both your mobile device and your smart device need to connect to the same 2.4 GHz signal.
You do not need to disable the 5GHz band if you can separate the two bands by logging on to your router and, through the settings, changing the name (SSID) of each band. i.e., my network 2.4 and my network 5. Then, connect to the WiFi name allocated to the 2.4GHz band on your phone...

As time goes by, upgrading yourself and the things around you is essential. There are many types of ceiling fans available on the market and we have found that Australian households are confused about selecting the right fan according to their needs.
This article covers why DC Fans are better than AC Fans. Firstly, what is the difference? DC stands for (direct current) and AC fans are (alternating current).
I hope the information below will help you choose the right fan for your home.
Traditionally ceiling fans run on featured AC motors. Although AC fans are cheaper to manufacture, they are less energy-efficient than DC fans and AC ceiling fans only featured AC motors because residential properties have AC power.
Purchasing a DC fan for a bedroom, gives you extremely quiet cooling at the lowest running cost. Up to 8 x cheaper than an AC fan and up to 50 x cheaper than ducted air conditioning. The only noise is the sound of the air flow, no buzzing motors...
