A company which specialises in providing lighting solutions says it is important that consumers choose the right type of lighting for their homes or business for safety.

Al-Hamd Smart Living recently invested $500,000 to its building on Nadi Main Street.

The company came into the market in 2012.

Managing director Ashfaaq Khan said: “The inferior/ low quality lights have started coming into the market and having lot of negative effects to the environment.

“Our main priority is to educate people about the benefits of buying good quality LED lights and the negative effects of low quality lights and what to look for as a consumer before buying the LED lights.

“People in Fiji and some electricians are not aware of the consequential risks.

“Flooding has always been an issue, but with the newly-built second floor, we have moved our offices and showroom upstairs.”

Mr Khan was inspired by his late grandfather M.E. Khan, the owner of M.E. Khan and Company. The company was one of the suppliers of electricity in Nadi during the late 1920’s which was then sold to the Fiji Electricity Authority in 1972, he said.

“Our family background has always been in the technical and electrical since my grandfather had a company that was supplying for electricity to Nadi town.”

Al-Hamd Smart Living products range from flood lights, decorations, crystal lights, surface lights, bulbs, ceiling lights, street lights chandeliers, and so on.

They are planning to open a shop in Suva soon.

How can consumers identify the right LED light?

Ask retailer for wattage tester and get the light tested before buying.

Use your smart phone camera to see if the LED light flicks, if it flicks then its an inferior good.

Check product for description and certification.

Ask supplier for product certification like CE, ROS and the model number and should match with model number on light.

Ask for warranty and after sales service so that you can really enjoy results.
