New-TechEurope | Mesh Networks Help Save Energy Through Smart LED Lighting Controls in the Home

 

The energy savings that can be made by switching to LED lighting in the home are well known. It has been widely documented that low power, high efficiency LED luminaires can reduce power consumption by more than 80% when compared to traditional sources, such as halogen and incandescent. Less well understood is the fact that smart lighting controls can shave significantly more off the electricity bill. Smart control features, made possible through sensors and wireless networks, include automatic dimming, and turning off lights in unoccupied rooms.
