Electrical FAQs

  1. Increased Security – One of the primary advantages of sensor lights is increased security. Criminals frequently use the cover of darkness to infiltrate a property. When they enter a poorly lit area, they feel more confident and secure. Motion sensor lights placed in strategic locations will startle them. These lights will also alert you if an intruder is on your property, allowing you to take the necessary precautions.
  2. Energy Efficiency – Motion sensor lights will help you save energy and lessen your environmental impact. These lights will turn on when you enter the area that requires illumination and turn off when you leave. This is the best option if you or other residents of your property are careless and frequently leave the lights on.
  3. Safety – Stumbling around in the dark to find the light switch or move from one location to another on footpaths can be tricky. You run the risk of injuring yourself or knocking things over. This is especially dangerous for children and the elderly. Motion sensor lights will end up making you and your family’s home environment safer by turning on automatically when they detect movement. It’s a great feeling to see where you are going at night – thanks to a strategically placed sensor light.

When choosing to install sensor lights, there are also many external variables that you must consider. The most conventional sensor lights nowadays come as LED versions, ensuring a long operating life. They are extremely bright and are usually rated to be water resistant for outdoors installation. They can light up the entire garage, side pathways, front and or back yard, as well as driveway. Decorative, lower light level motion sensor lights are better suited for indoor use and can be installed in a variety of locations throughout your property.

Secondly, before developing an outdoor security lighting plan, we carefully assess and measure your property. We have completed many sensor light installation projects in the past and understand how to determine the best location for the lights. Our technicians will ensure that the system is efficient and that the lights illuminate the appropriate areas.

If you want to learn more about sensor light installation or have any questions about our services, please contact DQ Electrical and Solar.

Outdoor fixed lighting comes in a variety of styles and designs, ranging from modern to heritage, as well as industrial and coastal, with higher corrosion protection for homes near the sea.

The benefits of outdoor lighting include safety, security, and exterior lighting is a must for anyone looking to improve the safety of their home and surroundings. Motion detection lighting is always a good addition when installing outdoor lighting because it keeps you and your family safe as you navigate walkways and entrances in the dark. Motion detection lighting will also serve as an additional security feature, deterring unwanted guests or even animals.

Our team of local experts specialises in outside fixed and sensor lighting installation, which includes everything from garden lights to outdoor light sensors and outdoor aerial lights. For our electricians, no job is too big or too small.

Lighting should be handled by professionals. For commercial properties nearby staff can increase safety and improve running costs by replacing old floodlights or outdoor security lighting with modern LED lighting, which has much lower running costs.

This means, when it comes to outdoor lighting in Adelaide, DQ Electrical and Solar can be your trusted installer.

Today, lighting in many homes is getting a makeover. With cutting-edge LED lights for indoor lighting a wide range of new options opens up. The LED light generation has a much lower running cost than the older generation of incandescent, CFL or halogen lights.

LEDs have quickly become the preferred choice for residential lighting due to their numerous advantages and cost savings. LED bulbs, for example, mimic natural light better than other bulbs, making your home feel more inviting and easier on the eyes.

LED lighting is also adaptable. Strips of LED lights, which can be placed in recessed shelves, behind televisions, and along the floor, are a popular type of modern lighting. 

Strip LEDs can offer both safety and aesthetic benefits, and the more expensive versions of these LED strips can frequently change colour on command. Whatever ‘look’ you want, LED lights can help you achieve it. Their good quality LED lights will also last longer than older bulbs.

Smoke alarms are made up of two main parts. The first is a sensor that detects the presence of smoke. The other is a digital horn, which is used to immediately notify the occupants of a fire threat. For the smoke alarm to be effective and comply with Australian Standards, both components must work together.

You can choose between two types of smoke alarms:

  • Photoelectric detector: Photoelectric smoke alarms detect visible particles of smoke in the air. They accomplish this by shining a light away from the cell using a photocell and a light beam. This enables the alarm to detect a smouldering or smoky fire quickly. Photoelectric smoke alarms are less likely to give a false alarm or to activate when cooking fumes are present.
  • Ionisation Detectors: Ionisation detectors are using a small, safe amount of radioactive material that reacts to particles emitted by the far. These alarm systems are effective at detecting fast-moving, flaming fires with very little, or “undetectable” smoke.

DQ Electrical & Solar provides a variety of regular smoke alarm, lighting and electrical maintenance service for landlords to provide you with total peace of mind as part of our commitment to keeping your tenants and the property safe. Did you know that smoke detectors have an expiry date, and need to be replaced after years of use?

With a thorough understanding of all types of smoke detectors, our qualified electricians have the skills and knowledge to confidently service your specific make and model of smoked detector.

Our electrician will perform the following work during each maintenance service:

  • All smoke detectors to be cleaned and tested.
  • Batteries to be replaced.
  • Check the decibel levels to ensure that the sound can reach most of the premises.
  • Smoke detectors that are faulty or have reached the end of their useful life should be replaced.

Therefore, if you need an upgrade or installation of a smoke alarm, feel free to contact us.

We take pride in the fact that our rewiring work is thorough and complete, leaving no potentially hazardous wiring behind. We would like our customers to have peace of mind knowing that their home’s electrical systems are completely safe and up to Australian standards.

Furthermore, many older-style homes use outmoded cables and wiring, which can cause power disruptions such as shortages and overloads. Depending on the age of the home, your wiring may not meet current Australian Standards, which can have an impact on home insurance policies. Electrical rewiring can breathe new life into your home by allowing you to add more appliances and technology, making your life easier and more personalised. Naturally, it also makes your home safer, which is a key consideration for us.

For both new and pre-existing structures, we can upgrade the existing wiring as well as add additional wiring to accommodate additional power points, lighting, and electrical appliances.

All our repair wiring services are of the highest quality, and we only use top of the line equipment, from brands such as Clipsal, Schneider, Legrand or HPM, to give you a lasting outcome.

We make certain that all our technicians clean up after themselves, leaving your residence in a clean condition.

Great Customer service and product. Purchased a solar system with Battery. Brian from DQ presented facts, truth and honesty regarding their product and pricing. I found the Solar market very difficult to negotiate with cheap or over priced systems available. DQ electrical gave me much confidence. It took me 6 months to make a decision and Brian was always available and courteous towards my question and eventually won my business.
