We all strive for comfort and convenience, especially when it comes to arranging our home. We want to make the home beautiful, modern, play with design options, rearrange and repair, consult designers. But with the light? – And with light – darkness. Sovdepovskie switches, good old wiring under putty and chandeliers in the form of flowers – pop culture makes itself felt. But progress – the comrade is volatile, and this is at hand for us – thanks to him, remote control of lighting has become possible. Convenient, stylish and presentable. Find out more.

Automation of engineering systems and the remote inclusion of lighting can be useful both for indoor lighting and for external complexes of lamps and street lamps. This move will help create comfortable living conditions, establish life (decorate the apartment, the exterior of the site) and manage entire areas (if we talk about street lamps in cities). But the main advantage of such a solution is a significant saving of energy costs at the facility.
Is it shining or not shining – that is the question
The rapid impetus in the development of electronics and lighting technology led to the invention and, accordingly, the appearance on the mass market of both new standard light sources and all kinds of devices for controlling these sources. And, if a decade ago, all that could be said about the control of light is a switch on the wall, today the diverse remote lighting switches have gained intelligence.
These are high-tech sensors, sensors, control panels that reduce the number of regulators and switches. With their help, you can maintain and control constant and variable light levels. And this, in turn, is a convenient way to correctly organize the lighting of rooms, dividing them into an arbitrary number of zones depending on conditions, time of day and situation.
How it works
Such management light systems automatically detect and scan light levels, their degree of brightness, and make it easy to adjust them. The user can change the paradigm at any time in relation to his requirements, life situation (romantic evening, party, etc.), while saving on electricity without compromising vision.
A familiar situation when it seems to be not dark, but my eyes already hurt, and I don’t want to turn on the light when it’s still light? Such a remote-controlled lighting switch will help to adjust the bulbs in the room so that the main emphasis is still on daylight, while the artificial one will complement it a little. The functionality is very convenient using various light scenarios, which can create any light “scene” with just one button: once – and you’re done.
All these operations can be carried out manually (by remote control) and automatically (sensors, receivers and a control station will do all the work for you, just enter the necessary data). You can start the system of such “smart” light from one receiver, then expand it, increasing the comfort of your home step by step.
Control is via radio equipment, electrical appliances with remote transmitters. The signals pass through the radio channels, which automatically solves the problem of installation, installation and subsequent movement of both the receivers themselves and your miracle remote.
Features: a new level of comfort
Functional advantages and features of light control systems:
1. No need to get up or go outside, breaking away from the work process or a pleasant company – the remote control is always at hand.
2. The ability to create any lighting scenarios for events (especially useful in shopping centers, restaurants, bars, squares and clubs).
3. All in one bottle – it is convenient to control the light in the house, on the street (lighting of the facade, landscape, etc.) using one remote control.
4. The effect of being present during the hours when you are not at home or in the office (an effective way to make it clear to potential attackers that the building is not empty, and they have nothing to do there).
5. Energy saving, especially during daylight hours.
6. Ease of use and installation.
Such systems fit equally well in classic and modern high-tech interiors. They are especially often used in smart homes..
Saving. The system automatically registers the moment when no one is in the room, and turns off. And, on the contrary, if someone enters the room, approaches the house, the fence on the site, the light turns on, which is equally effective in combating burglaries and bear cubs and is convenient if your hands are elementary.
Such equipment can control the lighting of a separate night lamp, the entire house, automatic gates, garden plots, heating devices and shutters.
Such equipment will create the illusion of static lighting in you – sunny outside the window or cloudy, darkens and shines, if you need, you will always have the same level of illumination. So you can save eyesight and a lot of money (up to 20% of electricity).
Interesting bonus against intruders
In your absence, you can set up an “asymmetric” set of lighting scenarios: from time to time, the system will turn on / off the light in arbitrary rooms, open and close the shutters, simulating your presence at home. Even if you are not at home for a long period of time, it is almost impossible to calculate the scheme, since the program does not repeat and has no regularity.
That’s what the technique has come to
Separate models of such equipment for controlling light modes allow you to control the light at home and anywhere directly from your tablet, phone or laptop. From a smartphone and other personal gadgets, you can carry out exactly the same actions – turn on / off electrical appliances, change the brightness and lighting scenarios, work blinds.
All that is needed is to download an application on the Internet or buy a control station. There are systems based on android, iphone and ipad – whatever your heart desires.
Think about it: now it’s possible to turn on the light not just not getting up from the sofa, but even being at a great distance from the building. It is convenient, or you find it an expensive excess for the rich – you decide. But from the very thought that the human brain is capable of creating something similar, it becomes a little brighter on the soul and in the room.
