Tim began Dai yang Electrical on the Northern Beaches in 1994

He felt great joy when flicking the light on for the first time after new installations, and borrowed the Almighty's phrase  "Let there be light"


Dai yang (meaning "wide as the sea") Electrical soon expanded to include services in security, airconditioning and fire alarms in domestic, commercial and industrial premises. Over the years, Tim mentored dozens of new apprentices. He pioneered novel techniques and custom designed new lighting such as LED systems imported from South Korea and energy saving installations- long before it was practiced in Australia. He quietly influenced the electrical trade on the ground and maintained due diligence in researching and implementing novel electrical systems and kept a fervent curiosity in new technologies. Having installed and repaired hundreds of PABX systems in Sydney, data networking became a passion most realised through his son- a computer scientist/IT technician. Together, they established innovative PBX and IP security systems that harness optimal electrical output and quality data and voice transmissions. Today, Dai yang Electrical's experienced team of electricians, engineers and IT technicians offers large scale electrical, security, data services with existing industrial clients; PBX and IoT automation for domestic and commercial clients.
