In an automated home, smart lighting cuts down on power usage, ensures the safety and comfort of residents, and “learns” resident behaviors, ultimately streamlining lighting output according to homeowner schedules and routines. Wireless lighting lets users set lighting schedules, control lighting settings, and turn lighting on or off. And the best part is that all of these functions can be performed remotely, since wireless lighting connects to your home’s controller, and from there to your smart phone or tablet.
Today, wireless lighting systems are being implemented in private homes and corporate headquarters alike. Wireless lighting maximizes energy savings for everyone – and it appeals to contractors and business owners in particular, since wireless lighting makes it easy to satisfy modern building codes and comply with energy conservation parameters. Since wireless lighting grants complete wireless control of all lights and switches in the home, the necessity for manual switching decreases.
When you’ve got wireless lights installed, you’re able to program the system to turn on or off at certain times, or even synchronize with the garage door and motion sensors so you never come home to an unlit house. In tandem with smart timers and sensors, wireless lighting systems can convey a “lived-in” look even when the resident is far from home. Business owners love wireless lighting - conference room lights, for example, can be programmed to turn on upon entry and then shut off when the room empties. Plus, all lights in a warehouse can be switched on or off at once – and from afar – which represents a significant boon in cost and energy savings as well as efficiency.
Wireless lighting makes sense for so many reasons, but in the end, it all boils down to saving time, money, and stress. The smart wireless lighting of today connects seamlessly to your smart home network to work in parallel with your existing smart home technology. Z-Wave home automation technology systems, for example, are compatible with most wireless lighting solutions, which makes setup and everyday use a breeze.
