1.0 out of 5 stars Beware, 27 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Interlux™ E14 to GU10 adaptor
When screwing this into the fitting the metal base detached from the white ceramic top. It is only held together by crimping.

When I switched the light on the fuse blew.

When I tried to remove the adaptor the thing separated into two parts and it took an hour to remove the now broken metal screw from my light fitting. IMHO the method of holding the metal onto the plastic should be unbreakable.

2.0 out of 5 stars Approx twice the size of a halogen, 15 Feb. 2013
The light is fine and the product looks well made. However for me there are two problems. With a halogen the light is radiated from the front, the sides and to the rear. Almost like a mini sun. A halogen bulb sits well inside the decorative glass shade and the light radiated is very attractive. With the LED unfortunately this is not so for my light fittings. The LED is about twice the length of a halogen and the light is not radiated to the back of the bulb. The unit almost protrudes from my fittings. There is an ugly low light ring halfway back the shade. It is certainly not a perfect halogen replacement. Such a pity the energy saving potential is great. INHO these devices need to be developed further to reduce the length buy a half and increase the light radiated to the sides.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent image quality. Very good system., 3 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The system was easy enough to setup with my BT Homehub 3 and with it switched on its certainly reassuring to be able to verify all is as it should be when we are away.

It is not perfect however, I have many wireless networks in my office and I found that when using the camera wirelessly the remote monitoring system kept producing messages that the device had gone off line. I suspect the airwaves are just too congested. Sometimes the camera came back on line without manual intervention, others it demanded a reboot (plug / unplug). It is therefore possible for the camera to go off line and stay that way until you return, and that could be a long time

However having stated this problem. If you connect the camera via a LAN cable it works perfectly without any error. The camera housing is solid and very well made. The black stand is not too good. It would be better supplied with a longer LAN cable and a longer heavier 12v psu cable. Its almost as though the camera is industrial quality but the accessories are a level down. It is not easy to work out which extension power cable to use either.

As previously stated the image quality is really excellent, both in good and poor light. The system behind it is excellent. it is very easy to view snapshots and live images on an iPhone. (set it to mjpeg and server push), or just go into the main website. The support is good, knowledgable and fast. Although they were not upfront about the possible interaction with other wireless networks if a lot are present. I will certainly consider buying another .

UPDATE. AFTER USING 1 MONTH. Still very pleased with the camera. I keep it LAN cable linked so no WiFi interference from other sources. It produces the odd false alarm ( Light level seems to flash) but thats no issue. Its reassuring to get the alarm via email. Proves the system is working.

The same day that I put several of these in my garden there was considerable interest from coal tits all sizing up their possible new home. They look great and the price is right!

2.0 out of 5 stars Bright but., 3 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The layout of the LEDS means brighter and dimmer areas create unpleasant banding effects on the decorative shade. The original halogens are much more aesthetically pleasing. (although they cost a fortune to run) I have tried two different manufacturers designs and they both suffer the same problem. In my view more development is needed, and should focus on the evenness of the emitted light rather than on the already excellent energy saving. They are packaged as warm white but when compared to a halogen are very cold. Ah well......back to the drawing board.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great piece of kit, 3 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Fast, reliable, easy to use. Don't though use it left in a sunny hot window. You may get an over temperature error. This is not a problem with design, Wonderful for mobile access. You may have to create a profile with the correct APN to get it to work on another network. Thats easy enough, just Google it or use with a PAYG Three 3gb card for a bargain price from Amazon. Seems to last for ages.

This is excellent quality cable at a very reasonable price. I was surprised how big the core is and on reflection could have bought a size down.
