Save Money by Automating Lighting Systems
Making your home an energy-saving smart home includes automating your lighting systems. With just a few controls put in place, you can save a tremendous amount of energy over the course of a year. Every kilowatt-hour saved is more money in your pocket to be spent on other things.
Automated lighting devices, dimmers, motion-activated switches or programmable timers should be a standard fixture in the home, anywhere that there are appliances or lights that need to be switched on and off. These timers / controls provide convenience and security and equally important, they save energy.
These units typically work by utilizing photoelectric technology or a timer that sets the hours of usage or when to turn on and off.
Photocells or photoelectric sensors will turn lights on when daylight fades and night begins so that you are not walking into a dark environment. This technology is good for indoor night-lights as well as outdoor lighting.
Clock Timers are ideal if you have specific hours of operation you desire for your lights or appliances. Examples of clock timer functions are for turning security lights on and off when you are not home or starting your coffee maker in the morning so that you are ready to go as soon as you wake up!
Motion detectors are excellent for outdoor security lights if you do not like the idea of having your external lighting on all night. Motion sensors are activated when someone, or something crosses in front of the area being monitored and are excellent for conserving energy.
