Remote lighting control
Achievements of civilization are designed to facilitate ourlife and make it more comfortable. These innovations were made and our "fortress." In recent years, on every corner hear talk about housing equipment technical equipment. Quite recently there was such a thing as a "smart home", which includes a lot of tools and systems. Remote lighting has replaced the normal regulation of light.

Intelligent Lighting Control System
More than 120 years there is electricity. However, despite such a venerable age, home for the most part covered by the present day type of lamp of Thomas Edison. By the way, the light is converted only 15% of energy consumption, the remaining 85% take the form of heat. Therefore, we can say with confidence that such systems are not economical and completely ineffective.
The advantages of remote control
Gone are the lighting system controlledonly in manual mode. The system of "smart house" allows you to control lighting by installing remote lighting control units with dimmers. Such a scheme by virtue of memorizing a given level of brightness and turn on the lights in a different room.
Equipment homes remote systemLighting provides their owners indisputable advantages compared to standard lighting devices. For example, returning home, you open the door to the hallway room that is flooded with light, and you do not need to fumble in the dark to find the switch. Do not think, no one forgot to turn off the light, leaving.
step switching system can includelight ahead of human movement. You will go on a lighted room, which is especially important if there are children in the house. This is the advantage of having intelligent lighting in the house, which responds to the appearance of people in the housing and on the movement of residents between rooms.
System remote lighting elementsDepending on the sensor sensitive to any changes in the environment. The presence of the remote control allows you to decide which room and at what time will be switched off and switched on the light. The fact that the lamp burns out, you will know immediately after the fact.
But the main advantage of intelligent systemsLighting Control - dimmerovanie lighting that allows you to smoothly change the level of light and save energy. The menu system parameters can be set in advance to make the script, according to which the light will turn on.
Indoor Lighting Management
Intelligent interior lightingthe house is carried out taking into account the day of the week and time of day. Such schemes are equipped with a mechanism for real-time clock and ideally suited for people who forget to switch off the light in the room or the bathroom, going to sleep. Light level can be adjusted based on the presence of people in the room, remote light switches disconnect or include coverage in a particular room. In addition, this function is aimed at significant energy savings.
outdoor lighting management
Intelligent lighting control systemalso allow you to control exterior lighting. Such systems rank as members of the auxiliary and garage lighting and spotlights, which are regulated by remote control or light sensors. Outside in addition to the functionality of the lighting brings more and decorative component: lights green areas, flower beds, fountains and artificial ponds. street light control with controller "smart home" does away with the manual regulation of different groups of lighting.
lighting scenarios: Variations
The brightness of light in the system of intellectuallighting can be adjusted depending on the desired lighting schemes you background. Options for lighting scenarios - are quite diverse, they provide conditions for all everyday situations and events. lighting scenarios can be programmed accordingly wishes of the owner.
Classic lighting options:
- scenario "holiday" requires remote switching of lighting the whole house, street lighting circuits at home, changing the color and intensity of light;
- scenario "night garden lighting" means the lighting around the perimeter of the infield all sorts of lamps, lighting and shapes of trees, marked footpaths;
- scenario "romantic dinner" is to organize the muted light in the room or in the coverage of a particular home zone;
- scenario "alarm" lies in the inclusion of light throughout the house (variant "flashing light");
- scenario "home cinema" organized by subdued lighting in the living room while watching your favorite movies.
During your absence, you can select a scriptlight illumination wicket gate and the main elements of the house. Such illumination after dark will become more intense. When you open the gate, and the gate will turn on the backlight gate, exit to the garage, pathways and entrance doors, and at the opening of the front doors - house interior lighting system. Approaching a decorative element - a fountain, flower beds, gazebo, located in the garden, it includes their illumination. Thus, the "smart" light contributes to a significant human comfort in all situations.
Electronic remote switches
The main advantage of remote switchesIt is that the installation does not require additional work. Even if the apartment is made dorogushchy renovation, the walls and ceilings drilling, as well as the purchase and installation of additional wiring is needed. It does not require the destruction of what was produced by extreme mental and physical effort.
Switches to infrared
Remote electronic light switchestype is divided into two large groups - and infrared remote control. What are the advantages of these devices and the advantages over a simple switch? Here it is necessary to recall, as in the old days it was necessary to approach the TV and change the channel manually. Perhaps the first devices that were equipped with remote controls, are just the TV.
Later, there were video recorders andDVD-players, who were equipped with such remote control. But at the same time to enable the extra lamp had to go to the switch through the entire room. This situation has prompted some firms to create sockets, dimmers and switches, which are controlled by IR - rays.
Modern light switch with remotemanagement has one indisputable advantage: it is possible to use one switch in the management of several different lights, instead of frantically search for the right remote control to turn on every light bulb.
Remote control to infraredrays can transmit the command only in the line of sight, so that the signal transmission distance is small - no more than 12 meters. Everything is determined by the power of the transmitter.
RADIO remote control
With all the advantages of remotemanagement infrared inherent in them is one drawback - the functioning of line of sight. This lack deprived of consoles that run on the airwaves. In this case there is no clogging or radiohuliganstva ether. These intelligent lighting control panels allow you to manage the remote load - ie lighting fixtures that are located in the next room.
The transmitters operate at frequencies thatset aside for these purposes, - 433 or 868 megahertz, and their capacity is only 10 milliwatts, which is enough to operate within a radius of 100 meters. Such power is regulated by law, so the more powerful consoles simply not available.
Various natural obstacles, for example,intercommunication ceilings or walls, reduce the power of the radio signal, reducing the operating range. To compensate for the losses of power used radio repeaters. By the way, this equipment can be used in the system of "smart house", or as a standalone device to control any electrical equipment that is installed in the house.
Remote switches consist, as a minimum,of two parts - the actuator and controller. Sometimes it may be necessary to install additional devices - repeater signal in the event that a radio signal is significantly weakened, in particular in reinforcement of concrete structures.
RADIO produced in the form of adapters,that are simply inserted into sockets already present and controlled by remote control, are included in the hardware kit. How to be funny sounds, but about the device often recall in the last turn.
Thus, the remote control systemlighting can be set to synchronize with changes in the real time of day. Suffice it to program the timer number and intensity of the lamps. Remote lighting system will operate on a user-defined script. In addition, such control the brightness of light in the house can significantly save electricity costs.
