Ever heard of a wireless lighting system? Wireless seems to be the direction that all technology is heading in, including lighting, and with the multiple perks it comes with, we can see why! Not only does it give us the ability to control all of our lights with a single remote, it lets us set the mood, and use a multitude of colors for lighting the living room the way we want. But aside from those perks, what are some other benefits to a wireless lighting system? What are some products that can help my house become wireless?
There are many different benefits to a wireless controlled lighting system.
Wireless remote controls are perfect for those commercial buildings where running control wires are too costly or impossible to install. Some types of these buildings include: parking garages, warehouses, and retrofits.
If you are planning on retrofitting your lighting system and turning it into a wireless system, you should check out Trulux’s lighting control. This remote has a color wheel that allows you to choose what type of mood or color light you want to set.
These remotes can come with a rechargeable USB battery or an older version that will require you to install triple A batteries. The remote that requires batteries is going to have less capabilities when it comes to programming zones.
For any kind of wireless remote control you are first going to need a receiver that is compatible with the remote. In the case of Trulux’s remote control, you are going to need a Trulux RF receiver.
While the installation process is simpler than most it is important that you have the right type of receiver. So, if you plan on retrofitting your lighting system to a wireless system it is essential that you order a receiver for it to function properly.
Lastly, and the most obvious thing that you are going to need, are the lights. In this case Trulux has their own kind of strip lights that are LEDs.
Eco-friendly practices can help save on energy consumption in commercial buildings. You can also reduce energy consumption by switching current light fixtures to LED, regularly changing HVAC filters, and much more.
