    UK I need some guidance from a professional electrician......

    I would like to consult with experienced electricians about the cooperation relationship between electricians and brands. For example, if I install a Zano brand dimmer, would I receive a commission from Zano? Or are there similar cooperation methods? Is this a topic that can be openly discussed?
