There are many reasons for wanting to add a wireless switch to an outdoor socket, for example switching on a light, controlling an outdoor appliance or sprinklers, or the ability to switch off power for security. Scolmore has made this task simpler than ever with the latest addition to its Click Smart wiring accessories range – the Click Smart 2-gang Outdoor Socket and Switch.
The new product is part of Scolmore’s Aquip66 range of durable, easy-to-install weatherproof boxes which come as completely sealed units and are designed to offer a high level of protection against ingress of water jets and dust. It is available as a boxed smart solution, with each box containing one 2-gang Anthracite Grey IP66 Weatherproof socket, one white Smart switch and one white receiver.
By simply adding the receiver to the socket and the switch to a convenient location, it allows smart control of anything plugged into the socket, from anywhere in the home.
The IP66-rated weatherproof socket and switch enclosures offer users a single fix installation – with the whole of the back box fixing to the wall to accommodate the socket or modules. Multiple knock-outs on each side (20mm) allow for entry from all angles, and a flexible rubber base with rear entry gasket provides extra weatherproof protection, as well as allowing for mounting on most types of uneven surfaces.
The sockets and switches can be purchased as empty unfurnished boxes or furnished with the appropriate socket or switch modules. A spring loaded lid makes for easy access and the units are also lockable which safeguards them against tampering, as well as allowing for safe isolation.
The range is supplied in anthracite grey, with its robust construction providing high-impact resistance and it is UV protected against fading. The versatility of the range means the units can be used for a wide range of wiring accessories including Fused Connection Units and Isolation Switches.
