Niles CM7HD 7-Inch 2-Way LCR In-Ceiling / In-Wall High-Definition Speaker with Pivoting Tweeter (Ea)Niles High-Defintion audio loudspeakers provide superior sound quality and longevity by utilizing advanced components, materials, and circuit designfor advanced home theaters and primary listening rooms. Whether you are listening to background talk radio or a complete orchestra, Niles CM series speakers deliver optimal performance and reliability.

Precision tuned and voiced fixed woofer ceiling-mount loudspeakers provide graduated performance for all types of applications. Integrated woofer/baffle design delivers greater low frequency response by employing a larger 7-inch woofer where competitive models of the same outer size employ only 6 1/2-inch woofers in the same size speaker installation. The Interlaced glass fiber cone is yet extremely rigid for deep, powerful bass response; it also features a butyl rubber surround that damps resonance and provides exceptional durability. A 1-inch nano-coated IMPACT (Improved Aluminum Ceramic Technology) dome tweeter utilizes a vapor deposited coating to move any ringing frequencies outside the range of hearing for ultra-detailed high frequencies. A proprietary bridge-mounted tweeter-adjustment mechanism focuses the high frequency sound in any direction up to 20° without diffraction and a 3-position tweeter level control provides for precise matching to room acoustics. Three patent-pending spring tensioned mounting clamps permit quick installation and compensate for uneven mounting surfaces and varied environmental conditions. Weather-resistant construction and a MicroThin magnetically attached rust-resistant grille enables installation in moist areas, such as bathrooms or outdoors under eaves. Read more

Motion-Activated Light can Save up to 80% in Outdoor Lighting Costs While Keeping Property Secure

Heath / Zenith SL-5105-WH Dual Brite Motion Activated Security Light, WhiteKeep your property secure and well-lit, but only when necessary. This Heath / Zenith Dual Brite Security Light is only activated when motion is detected, so you won’t be wasting electricity by leaving the lights on all night. Using motion-activated lighting can save you up to 80% on outdoor lighting costs. With an exclusive patented photocell, this security light ensures lights will only operate at night, so you won’t lights won’t activate in daylight when you won’t use them. A manual override mode allows the lights to function as switch-controlled lights, if desired.

Set the Dual Brite timer to keep the lights on at half-bright for a set period of time after dark, providing a gentle light source for high traffic areas, such as front porches or patios. Lights will go to full-brightness when motion is sensed, then go back to half-brightness.

Use this security light as a crime deterrent to keep would-be intruders and trespassers. CreepZoneis a patented technology that eliminates dead zones in motion detection areas. Standard motion security lights operate with detection zones away from the light but cannot detect motion directly beneath the light. This security light detects motion directly beneath the light in addition to the left, right, and front zones. Pulse-Count technology reads heat and movement in pulses as opposed to single occurrences to prevent false triggering. Read more

Connect a 3-Conducter Grounded Plug to a 2-Conductor Polarized Receptacle

January 22, 2012 Leave a comment

AVB Cable U-09 3 Prong to 2 Prong Grounding Adapter, GrayThe AVB Cable U-09 Tap Adapter transforms 3-prong grounded plugs for use in standard 2-prong outlets while maintaining the ground. Great for plugging 3-prong devices into older sockets or extension cords. Eliminate the need to run extension cords across the room to find available outlets. Grounded and polarized taps and adapters allow you to take advantage of the closest outlet. These are “must-haves” for the home or office! This will convert a 3-prong power plug into a 2-prong while maintaining the ground.

If your home has outlets with 2 prongs, it means they aren’t grounded. The ground wire was added for personal protection. Appliances that have the third prong for the ground, have a portion of the equipment, or casing connected to that ground prong. Then if there are any wires inside the appliance that get loose, and make contact with the casing, the current will flow through the ground wire, instead of you. Without the ground connection, you may well be the best or only path to ground, and you can receive a shock. Read more
