Professional Electrician These are nearly always for the Professional Electrician. And their fellow peers of course. To share electrical advice at a more skilled electrician-style guy or gal. That's not to say some budding sparkys may have some exceptions and limited access. Most of all - it's a professional electrician who is found hanging around in these question and answer forums.

Security Alarms, Door Entry and CCTV (Public)

Security Alarms, Door Entry and CCTV (Public). Chat with other electricians about Security Alarms, Door Entry and CCTV Systems. This area of the forum is public, if you want the out-of-public area that's access only, then you need to apply for access and prove you're in the trade. For obvious reasons!!
