What are these wireless lighting controls?
There are wireless lighting control devices you could choose to transform your lighting system into a smart one. They include:
- Motion Detectors
When you want to control your security light so that they are lit when there is an intruder on your lawn, motion detectors is your best lighting solution. They work by detecting movements around them, which trigger them to switch on the lights linked or connected to them. When you install them, your security light will turn on, letting you know that someone is by the front door. You will then know what action to take.
- Occupancy and vacancy sensors
These wireless lighting control devices work by detecting or sensing the presence and absence of people, respectively. When you install them, they switch on the lights of the room that are occupied and leave those that aren’t. This saves you money since your monthly energy bills will reduce to significant levels. The occupancy sensors detect presence of you or any other family member in a room then switches on the lights. When the room has been vacated vacancy sensors detect absence of any human presence therefore switching off the lights automatically. When you go for a vacation and leave someone home, you don’t have to worry about them leaving some lights on for no reason.
- Timers and Dimmers
Timers are lighting control devices that switch on/off the lights at specific times, depending on how they have been scheduled. You can set them to switch on lights the moment dusk sets in and switch the same lights off when it dawns. You may also set the timers to switch off some lights such as your bedroom lights when you have gone to bed, or when you start sleeping.
Dimmers on the other hand are wireless lighting devices that work to control the brightness of your lights. Basically, they work to minimize your lights’ brightness thus saving you some energy bills.
You could also use voice command to control your lightings. Technologies such as Amazon’s Alexa or Google Assistant can also help you control your lighting just buy issuing voice commands.
