    I got them directly from orphek they ship world wide I just learnt something today technology gone so advance that now there customer support you don't need anyone to come out to you . These guys in the states will connect wirelessly to your lights via the gateway and diagnose any problems any thing need replacing no problem it's all user friendly can be replaced by the customer no soldering nothing off that sort . Just clip it on and sorted WOW it just keeps getting better I love these lights . If only my wife knows how much I really paid for these lights . God have mercy on my soul
