Smart Lighting

There are several advancements made to make the use of household lights as energy-efficient as possible. From using a compact fluorescent light bulb to shifting into LED lights, innovators are doing their best to provide energy saver lighting.

Smart lighting is a household lighting system that comes with heat sensors. The sensors detect if there is a person inside the room. The lights will automatically turn on and stay on as long as the room is inhabited. When the person leaves the room, the lights will automatically turn off.

Thermostat

With a thermostat device, energy efficiency is possible with your air conditioner. A thermostat is a sensor that detects if there are occupants in the room. The air conditioner’s performance is adjusted accordingly depending on the people’s movement. Thus, even when your child forgets to turn off the AC after leaving his room, it will turn off automatically.

 

Another feature of a thermostat is that it can detect when a window or door is open. Openings waste so much of the AC’s performance. When a window or door is left open, the air conditioner will automatically turn off.
