  I was just quoting Ian. Sorry if I got Ian in trouble.

I know the houses have it coming in just, most aren't pre-wired to make 
use of it for anything but, a couple of appliances.  Electricians are 
expensive and doing it yourself is stupid unless you know for sure what 
you are doing.  I was just pointing out before trying to find an Onyx 2 
one should probably make sure they can even turn it on safely or at 
least know what's required.
