Have any of you had any experience of a company called "Lighting Controls" - they appear to be a spin off or buy out of The IS Ltd, who I have come across, sadly when they didn't perform very well.

Looking for opinions as my last experience wasn't a happy one.

Regards

We done a large house for a friend of a friend a few years ago with Mode controls.

Depending what you are looking at controlling they do some nice little controllers and were friendly on the phone when I needed some guidance

OK - thanks chaps

I'm not looking for alternative specialists - just trying to evaluate a proposal.

At this point, it was simply canvassing any experience as it's not clear who, actually, the proposal is from and my previous experience with IS Ltd wasn't a happy one.

Thanks

I've done a large commercial project recently with the IS and found their commissioning and after care to not be very good. There are still some issues on site that they haven't sorted out and its been months now. I think Dave has the right idea with Helvar, we have never had any issues with them.

OK, thanks Amanda - that's both good to know and not very heartening in the same response

I guess there can always be the odd "problem job", but you aren't the only person who seems to have problems with them at installation, during commissioning (if it ever gets done) and in terms of after care. I did heare of one job that was a total shambles from

Time to start asking for references from satisfied customers and specifiers I think.
