Z-Wave Dimmer Overview
In a Z-Wave-enabled smart home, devices and appliances run on a single wireless network, one that’s separate from the family’s WIFI signal. Countless systems, from heating and cooling units to sprinklers, fans, and lights, can be linked to the Z-Wave network. From there, every device sends signals to a centralized controller, or “hub,” and from there, pertinent messages are delivered to the homeowner’s smart phone or app.
Enter the Z-Wave dimmer, which can replace your existing on-off light switch in any or all rooms. Suddenly, lighting options multiply, and because Z-Wave dimmers are smart, they can be programmed, monitored, and reset – from anywhere. Users can adjust lighting upstairs when they’re downstairs, or can ensure that the porch lights brighten when a visitor comes to the door. In the event of an unexpected late night at the office, homeowners can, with one touch, adjust their Z-Wave dimmers so that the home never appears empty.
Z-Wave dimmer switches cut down on power usage, because they can be programmed to match your schedule, dimming the lights when rooms are unused and raising them when someone enters, for example. “Vacation” lighting ensures eco-conscious peace of mind – lights will come on at random, but won’t be left on all the time. And Z-Wave dimmers enhance any home’s comfort, offering dramatic “scene” options for movie viewings, dinner parties, and more.
Investing in a smart home—and a smart Z-Wave dimmer—makes sense for a number of reasons. Smart homes make saving energy a breeze by eliminating wasted water and electricity use. Plus, smart homes add an element of luxury to any home – and with Z-Wave, that luxury comes at a price you can afford. With Z-Wave dimmers starting at $20, it’s worth investing now – in guaranteed energy savings, smarter home security, and enhanced comfort, inside and out.
