We hate to mention it, but with Strictly back on the telly it must mean that Christmas isn't far away!

We're all likely to be spending a bit more time at home this festive period, so maybe you're thinking of redecorating and the tv needs moving. Or perhaps it's just time to finally get that tv mounted on the wall and hide the unsightly wires.

Whether it's moving aerial & satellite points or wall mounting, Nicoll & Stewart will ensure your new room looks it's best for the holidays. Just get in touch and we'll be happy to discuss your requirements with you - https://www.nicollandstewart.co.uk/contact/

Do farmers need CCTV?

If you are a farm owner you may have the worry of people trespassing on your land - ramblers and local dog walkers are usually of no concern, but unfortunately there may be occasions when visitors are trespassing for more sinister reasons. With a good CCTV system positioned in farm access points you can monitor visitors and ensure that the safety of your animals is not compromised.

Not sure where to start with CCTV? Let us advise you -

Apparently over half of us haven't set up our TV pictures properly! After spending all that money on a new tv, it makes sense you should get showing your favourite shows at their very best.

Need convincing? Here's three reasons why you should set it up:

📺 A properly set up tv will look better - obvious, but true!

📺 A properly setup display may use less energy. A test found that some modes use less energy than others - who knew!

📺 You may find it less tiring to watch - if the screen is set too bright, your eyes are over-worked with the constant changes from very bright to very dark.

Do farmers need CCTV?

Agriculture can be a dangerous profession. If you have CCTV cameras positioned in these areas you will be better equipped to monitor staff safety, allowing you to devise a comprehensive safe working solution and ensure staff are compliant with your working processes at all times.

If a claim for health and safety breach is brought against you, the CCTV footage could help you refute any such claim.

If you’ve just bought a brand new Smart TV and are all ready to stream TV, you may be thinking do I even need a TV aerial?

The answer isn’t exactly a straight yes or no.

When deciding which aerial you need, it is important that you consider how you plan to use your TV. Aerials are required for Freeview or any live TV, so if you like to watch your programmes in real time then you definitely need an aerial.

If you’re only using your smart TV to stream on platforms such as Netflix or Youtube, then there’s no need for you to have an aerial.

If you need any help or advice, get in touch and we’ll be happy to give you a hand - https://www.nicollandstewart.co.uk/contact/

Do farmers need CCTV?

CCTV can prevent the theft of expensive agricultural equipment, but what about other aspects of your farm? As well as animal safety, having CCTV has shown a reduction in animal mortality, in many cases the cost of the CCTV installation has more than covered it’s costs when you calculate the value of animals which have been saved.

This year has led a lot of businesses to step back and refocus on what's important when it comes to the customer facing elements of their business.

A welcoming reception can make a world of difference to customer perceptions. Providing background distractions such as the news channel can put clients at ease and distract them from lengthy waiting times. You could set up your own transmitting channel and showcase what’s happening in your business, this can also be ideal for communicating with staff.

Do farmers need CCTV?

Farmers with livestock are expected to be on-hand during lambing or calving season to support and look after their herd and prevent complications - with CCTV installed, farmers are able to monitor their livestock remotely. In turn, livestock are generally calmer and more able to cope without unnecessary interference from farmers.

Thinking about a new tv but not sure what size you should get?

Too small and you'll not be able to see your favourite shows...but too big and it will dominate the room and you won't be able to take it all in! Modern tvs tend to have slimmer bezel design so they won't appear to be as big as they once used to.

An easy way to work it out is by your viewing distance - measure the distance between where you would sit and the position of the tv.

Optimum distances for each size category are:
📺 Approx 7ft - Small, 32" tv
📺 Approx 9ft - Medium, 40"-50" tv
📺 Approx 11ft - Large, 55" tv

Do farmers need CCTV?

Theft in rural areas is on the increase - installing carefully placed CCTV cameras on your farm will help you capture images of intruders or would-be thieves. Plus don’t forget that, by erecting clear simple signage – something similar to ‘CCTV is in operation’, that the system will also act as a deterrent.

For more reasons on why farmers should consider installing cctv on their farm, see our new blog post -

October 10, 1967: Outer Space Treaty comes into force | Knappily

As with the start of space week, the closing date was also chosen due to it's importance in space history.

On 10th October 1967 the Outer Space Treaty came into force - the agreement forms the basis of international space law.

Amongst others, the treaty states that the exploration and use of outer space shall be carried out for the benefit and in the interests of all countries and shall be the province of all mankind.

On this day, 50 years ago, the Outer Space Treaty went into force. Agreed on during a golden age of cooperation between the Soviet Union and the United States, it deems space a common asset. It gave rise to a series of others that govern space today: the Rescue Agreement (1968), the Liability Conven...

FAQ ❔

What is a digital aerial?

There is no such thing as a digital aerial. All aerials are capable of receiving analogue and digital signals, however some are better at receiving digital signals than others due to the bandwidth they cater for.

Did you guess right?

'The Godfather'!

Did you know? - As a cost-cutting measure, Paramount asked Coppola to modernise the script so the action took place in 1972 and to shoot the movie in Kansas City as a stand-in for the more expensive New York City. Coppola convinced them to keep the story in a post-World War II New York setting to maintain the integrity of the film.
