Out With The Old… In With The New.

The time has finally come, its here, the new Loxone Valve Actuator Air, nifty name, just rolls off the tongue doesn’t it? I shall just refer to them as the Air TRV’s for this post. I pity the poor support folks at Loxone for having to put up with me whining that this product wasn’t available, its been months, and after being teased with a preview of a pre-beta product back in January or February, its always been a question […]

The Loxone 0-6 Bar Pressure Sensor.

So we’ve been having some pressure lossĀ on our heating system resulting in no hot water first thing in the morning, me I can live with it, but its a deal breaker for the wife! Obviously the best solution now is to get the system fixed, but how do we keep an eye on the pressure in the future? First stop was the loxone site to see what they had tested, then looked elsewhere for a cheaper version, not much luck […]

Review : Silverhill Tools Magnetic Work Surface

This is going to be a difficult review, how can a magnetic work surface be interesting?

Excited About The Microsoft Event

Microsoft have an event this afternoon at 3pm UK time and I have to admit I am quite looking forward to this one. Microsofts events don’t have the pizazz of Apple events, thankfully! I’ve got tired of the whole Apple event format of an hour and a half of whooping and cheering for incremental updates of devices we already own. In my eyes Microsoft are doing everything right these days, giving away a free upgrade to Windows 10 from 7 […]
