Rated 3 out of 5 by from sockets excellent, these poor? BG IP66 sockets are excellent, sadly these switches are less so. Main problem is a lack of a positive mechanical switching action - they are just way too soft in operation. Also the 2 gang switch should have 2 indicator lights, not just 1. The things they share with the sockets etc, eg the box design is still excellent of course. I will continue to use them in combination with the sockets but could not recommend as a stand alone item.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from There are cheaper brands There are indeed cheaper brands but this does the job and it does it very well. Very nicely made, easy to use and with all the screw covers it looks great when fitted. You can slap the switch which makes a great positive sound and action, worth spending the money.

Does this have rear cable entry points ?

Asked by: Dave322
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. The BG Nexus (Storm range) weatherproof 2G 2W SP switch does have provision on the rear of the box for a 20 or 25mm hole to be drilled out in the centre inside a moulding designed to accept a ring of silicon sealant to prevent moisture seeping down the wall and into the hole.

What accessories go with this

Asked by: Tarcwin
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. This switch comes complete with 5 push-out caps on 20mm diameter cable entries plus the cover screws and cosmetic caps for attaching the front section to the back box. There is an option to drill out any of the entries to be 25mm if required, and there is also a drill-out option for a rear entry of either 20mm or 25mm diameter. Depending on your installation appropriate cable glands, trunking grommets or SWA cable glands may be required but are not supplied with the switch.
