Be Sure to Keep Covered – Correctly – When Installing Outdoor Power

In these days of COVID-19, a lot of us are spending more time outdoors. It’s the safest place for small gatherings, these days, even as the days start to get cooler. It’s nice to be able to plug in a speaker or TV – maybe even a small table lamp, for the evening – to make those outdoor spaces feel a little more like a living room or den that just happens to be located under the stars. Of course, exterior receptacles require some added protection to ensure their exposed location doesn’t raise electrical hazards.

Taking Wireless Lighting Control Outdoors

I'd not thought of this before until I came across some interesting lighting products. Using wireless lighting control indoors is almost second nature to me. I love the technology, to be honest. I can't remember the last time I touched a switch at home to turn lights on or off.

Connector and Coupling Options to Keep Conductors Dry

Electrical fittings are everywhere in home and business distribution systems – so much so, you might think they’re all interchangeable. But for contractors working in multiple indoor and outdoor locations, that’s not the case. Not all connectors or other fittings offer the same level of protection for the cabling running through them, which is why matching this hardware to its specific applications is so important.

May it be a light to you … when all other lights go out

If you're a J.R.R. Tolkien fan, you recognized that headline reference. Or if you're a movie buff and watched the Lord of the Rings trilogy, you're familiar with the little jar of liquid that lit up when you talked to it.

But in any case, if you're an electrician, you've been in dark places because of power outages or new construction.

I've been in my share of them, for sure.
