Taking Control of Energy Usage
According to the Energy Saving Trust, lighting accounts for approximately 7 percent of a typical household's utility bill. The boiler accounts for about 60 percent of the total energy expenses. LightwaveRF can reduce the amount of energy consumed for heating and lighting and power by only heating the rooms you need heating, when you need them and automatically turning off lights and appliances when you aren't using them.
The low cost, high-tech devices are retrofitted to replace existing sockets and switches and networked via a simple wifi link. That makes them accessible via an app on a mobile phone, laptop, tablet or desktop computer. The technology is neatly bundled in the installed units so that they are no more obvious than a typical wall light switch. The television, lights, boiler, air conditioning unit, and other devices like the coffee pot or hair straighteners that are plugged into electrical outlets, can all be included in the system.
Increasing Comfort and Safety
LightwaveRF offers households a way to lower energy usage, but that is only one aspect of this remarkable home automation system. It also brings a high level of comfort and security to the home in a variety of ways.
- Set dim lights to come on automatically when entering hallways
- No stumbling in the dark in the middle of the night to find the bathroom
- Come home to a house with lights on when arriving after dark increasing security with remote control lighting
- Get up in the morning to soft lights in the rooms you use and a warm towel rail in the bathroom with remote control heating
- Remotely turn off appliances that were accidentally left turned on, like an iron or hair straighteners
Getting Smart About Energy
The LightwaveRF represents state-of-the-art technology that turns an ordinary home into a smart home for very little investment. Routines can be programmed and are unique to each household. Using an intuitive app, set the remote control heating to come on at the time the children get home from school during cold weather, or program remote control lighting to come on and off inside and outside the home based on family schedules. What is truly remarkable about this system is that the technology is so sophisticated, but the system is easily installed and operated.
There are so many other features of the adaptable LightwaveRF system. As the old saying goes, "Seeing is believing."
