Why Should You Consider Smart Home Technology During Your Next Renovation?

7 March 2022 | Lightwave

In a recent Renovation survey conducted by Lightwave*77% of respondents felt smarter solutions could be integrated into the home to build greater convenience. In addition, many considered monitoring energy consumption, improving fire safety and saving money were important motivations for undertaking home renovations. 

With this in mind, let’s take a look at three of the key motivating factors for integrating Lightwave smart home technology into your next renovation. 

Increase Whole-Home Security

A massive 82% of respondents in the Lightwave survey believed improving home security was an important factor in their home renovations. As the world is returning to some semblance of normality, many people have now gone back to either schools or the office. With the power of Lightwave smart technology by your side, you can boost your whole-home security, increasing your peace of mind in the process. 

By incorporating smart lighting into your next renovation, you can simultaneously control multiple lights in different rooms. This will allow you to create the illusion of home occupancy, helping to protect your home whilst you are away.  There are easy to set up timer automations that will allow you to set lights in various rooms to shine at a pre-set intensity and duration. Group automations enable you to manage different Lightwave Smart Dimmers at the same time. 

It is easy to control automatic doors, gates, blind openers, and lighting circuits with the touch of a button, thanks to the convenience of the Lightwave App. Install Lightwave Smart Mini Relays to motorised blinds to manage them remotely. Then you can programme your blinds to open and close at dawn and dusk to mimic occupancy, wherever you are in the world. 

Increase Family Safety

64% of those who responded felt they could improve the overall fire safety of their homes. Lightwave Smart Sockets can act as mini fire safety officers to prevent everyday electrical appliances from becoming a potential fire risk. Any Smart Socket can be turned off instantly using the Lightwave App or voice control via your compatible smart speaker. Thanks to the invaluable locking function, you can rest easy knowing that children cannot switch on dangerous appliances without adult supervision. You could even set all devices to automatically turn off five minutes after use to ensure nothing is left switched on for extra peace of mind. 

Increase Energy Efficiency

When asked, ‘Do you find it easy to monitor your energy consumption at home?’, 67% of respondents said no. There are many simple ways to monitor your energy consumption with Lightwave efficiently. 

By incorporating smart technology, energy is only consumed when necessary by using smart heating to work hand in hand with your daily routine.  Integrating a Lightwave Smart Relay or a Smart Heating Switch  into your home will let you  manage aspects such as underfloor heating, so that only currently used areas will be heated. The Lightwave Magnetic Trigger is simple to attach to either door frames or windows. These act as mini-movement sensors and can detect when 

The L92 Smart Heating Switch allows you to pre-load energy tariffs into the Lightwave app. This will enable you to monitor your energy consumption over seven days. Therefore, you can make sure you are only using the energy you require.

An All-Round Smarter Renovation

The beauty of smart technology is that it brings convenience, comfort and peace of mind into any home renovation.. Choosing to incorporate smart devices into your next project, will save you money and energy in the long term.

Using the Lightwave App, you can turn off any unnecessary appliances, monitor your energy consumption, and control your lights’ brightness and your home’s temperature. By harnessing the power of Lightwave technology, you can automate your lighting, heating, and electrical devices to save money and create a more energy-efficient home. 

Good luck!
