Smart lighting is the key point of today’s automated world. With smart lighting advancement, we can change the color of light according to our moods, schedule them to on and off etc. This smart light technology in home automation solution makes our life easy and safe and is also energy efficient. Here we have discussed five different methods through which we can control our lights.
So far the easiest and the cheapest way to be automated in the lighting department is to use multiple smart bulbs depending on one’s usage. Having smart bulbs with existing switches has a big benefit that they can work with other methods which we will discuss further or manually as well. With some companies current technologies, we can also integrate old with new switches.
So if manual control is what you want alongside with some automated technology which is less expensive then smart bulbs with traditional switches are the best solution you can opt for.
Next way to control the lights is to control them via keypads. Keypads are simply switches having only push buttons, only touch panel display or a combination of display or push buttons like Schneider Electric’s 5085EDLB-OM, 5084NL-PW, 5085EDLW-PW etc. Keypads come in different variant like in 2 buttons, 4 buttons, 5 buttons etc.
These push buttons in these keypads can be used as a single function or multiple functions. In these one button can operate one loop i.e., one circuit. Functions that these keypad buttons can operate are- on/off, dimming, impulse on/off, delay on/off etc. As far as display is concerned, we can customize their label according to our needs. Avemfly Technology, as a system integrator of Schneider Electric in Home Automation, can provide all the keypad variants under one roof.
3. Mobile Phone
Next method by which you can control the lights is by integrating the devices with smartphones. With mobile integration, we can control the lights from the remote as well. In today’s digital era, the mobile application has made our life easier and comfortable. Whether you want smart switches, smart outlets or smart bulbs, you can control all your lighting variants through free smart home system’s application available both on google store and play store.
You can also monitor your loved one’s security over the phone even if you are away from them, as safety is one of the biggest concern in today’s environment. You can also keep an eye on electricity, water etc consumption within your home via your smart phone.
4. Voice Activation
In smart home technology, it is impossible not to consider the role of voice control. Controlling devices via voice actually means giving a command to the device to perform a certain task like dimming the lights, turning on the radio etc. without even lifting your finger. In today’s scenario, voice activation works as a Genie for us i.e., “Your wish is my command.” Whether you go for the third party like Amazon’s Alexa or Google assistant etc. they all can be integrated with the present lighting controls making it easier to control the lights. Voice activation also helps you to get rid of n number of remotes to operate different devices.
5. Smart Remote
Being system integrator of Elkoep, we also provide RF-Key and RF Remote (RF refers to Radio Frequency) which comes in addition to the smart switches. Key helps you to operate all light controls within a room whereas, smart remote helps you to control all the lighting controls within your home unless they’re in a defined range. They don’t even need wifi to communicate with each other because all the devices can communicate among themselves through radio frequency.
One can also create and customize different scenes for their home according to their needs via remote or can also change the color of lights and much more.
You can control each and every device if you opt for full home automation technology. By installing one single app on your home you can control all the lighting in your home.
