How to select Wireless Lighting Control System
There are countless benefits of installing a wireless lighting control system in a building, starting with an increased level of comfort and ending with energy-saving operation of each lighting fixture. The following guide that Westside Wholesale has prepared for you includes useful tips on how to select the most suitable wireless system for your needs.
First and foremost, the most important detail to specify before looking for a wireless lighting control system is the features that it should offer. Since there are various lighting fixtures installed in every building, your future system should have programmed modes of operation for each of them. Calculate the number of lighting fixtures of each type and then specify what is exactly that you want to control. For example, you may want to equip your indoor lights with an automatic on/off switch or a dimmer that will control the brightness of each lamp.
The next factor to pay attention to when selecting a wireless lighting control system is its compatibility with the lights that are installed in your house. Older fixtures may not be compatible with new controllers but there’s a simple solution you can take advantage of. There are wireless adapters that can help the general receiver send signals to the fixture and trigger its switch.
Control options of a wireless system are also the factor to consider. You need to look for remotes with the easiest controllers, otherwise you and your family members will have hard time managing the lights’ operation.
After all of the factors from above are taken into account, you might want to consider the installation and safety requirements and whether the system that you have selected complies with them. Usually, such information can be found in the description of the device, If not, ask the seller to provide you with it.
When the wireless lighting control system is finally selected, you may still have some concerns about its operation. Hopefully, the following answers will help you make the final decision.
