Where is Smart Lighting most useful?

Well, some would argue, where isn’t Smart Lighting useful?  In the home, it can be an excellent tool for increasing security, comfort and adding an extra element to entertaining.  Smart Lighting technology is perfect for today’s offices, and  industrial and public spaces. Everyone can benefit from the energy savings and lower running costs connected lighting offers.  In public spaces, lighting can be adjusted automatically to complement natural light levels. Occupancy sensors mean lights are only on when required so that energy isn’t wasted by lighting empty or infrequently used spaces – meeting rooms, bathrooms or car parks.  Outside of the home, energy and performance reports can be sent to a building’s facility manager so that staff can personalise lighting wherever they are.

Smart Lighting offers the benefit of added security whether at home, work, or out and about.  Lights can be set to come on both inside and out at chosen times, or when you are returning home.  You can even use your app to control lights whilst away from home – much superior to traditional timers which can only come on at the same set times.  Think Home Alone – lights going on and off at random times is far more of a deterrent than a predictable pattern.

Motion detectors in private or public spaces light up dark areas which can help deter crime, and on a national level in many countries, connected LEDs with sensors are replacing traditional street light bulbs.
