    One thing that hasn’t been thought of are other accessories, not nessaserly to work with lightwave but to fit in cosmetically

    Tv points
    Cat5e/6 points
    Telephone points

    above could be done cheaply buy just making a faceplace that you can insert modules into

    Also you could do with switched and unswitched fused spurs, esspecially for kitchens

    About 5 yr ago I ran Cat6 alongside my TV coax and replace the TV outlet with a 2 gang face plate and clicked in an RJ45 module and TV module (http://www.screwfix.com/p/screened-single-iec-coax-outlet-module-white/26681)

    Nothing to stop you fitting one of these http://www.screwfix.com/p/lap-1-gang-slave-telephone-grid-module-white/96798

    Would a LightwaeRF relay happily fit in your fused spur?

    And faceplate? What would you suggest that looks exactly the same as a lightwave one? I’m speaking from installing point of view on, most of my customers wouldn’t be happy with a double socket next to a different looking fused spur or different looking tv point etc. Yes you can get a similar finish, but different makes look different

    Sorry missed you saying you used a lightwave faceplate, who sells them? So just spurs they need to make to match

    By design my my TV / Cat6 outlets are all hidden by TVs / cabinets and just bog standard white single size with the 2 modules so not an issue for me – visible spurs are a mixture of white or chrome or brass dependant on the room ‘theme’ and deliberately not side by side with kit of a different make/model. Have a wander around BnQ or Screwfix website and you’ll find stuff (OK no coloured LEDs) not a million miles from LW kit.

    I’ve not had a need to look for non-white plug in modules but I’m sure they’ll exist – or even the brush boxes appear popular (you know bristles like on the back of some letter boxes)

    I find the super slim range from builder depot a very close match. http://www.builderdepot.co.uk/catalogsearch/result/index/?p=5&q=super+slim
