Using the Hue Disco app on my phone I can make the lights dance to the music. Video quality isn’t great and there’s no music, but it’s a taster. I will sort out a better video later.
The wall speakers, switches and lights went in today.
Got a lot of paint touching up to do..
So I was just reading something related to my speakers which said “Bezel and grille can be painted to match your room”
Bezel? oh crap.
Today we were painting the front of the house, we only stopped due to the threat of rain. Louise got right to the top of the house on a long ladder whilst I steadied it from the bottom by lying on it.
Then we have a peak at the bathroom, not a lot going on and it’s dark. Then a couple of the other rooms.
I will need 11 speaker cables between the wall plates and the AVR. So I bought 12 pairs of banana plugs, totally forgetting to calculate terminating both ends.
Incidentally not impressed with these banana plugs, you’re suppose to be able to put the cable up the middle of it and screw it on. What stops it coming out, compression? No. You need to twist it into a mess and try and screw the thread over the top of it – it’s a pain.
The Stanley automatic wire stripper is pretty awesome though.
Underfloor heating mats have gone down, ready for second fix (electrician) on Monday, and floor boards soon after that.
I have a needle for poking holes where it’s built up a little – but with a technique refinement, it all should be ok from here on. They are looking good.
