In case there was any doubt, the lighting industry is on the verge of its next revolution. Digital technology is transforming the way in which we live our lives, and there has never been a better time to invest in connected lighting technology for your home.
Lighting is an integral part of any home, performing many functions in the form of general task lighting to assist day-to-day activities, ambient lighting to enhance interior design, or floodlighting for security and peace of mind. Adding a connected element and integrating the whole of your house lighting into one connected system enables you to monitor and control your surroundings and presents a variety of fantastic benefits.
Here are the top four reasons why you should integrate the OCTO connected ecosystem to your home:
The OCTO ecosystem enables complete control of your home’s lighting, it’s the perfect tool to dim the luminaire in the room you’re in, control garden lighting from the comfort of your patio, or even set low-level lighting to come on if you’re visiting the bathroom in the middle of the night. OCTO enables the user to create lighting scenes, set timers and even control their lighting from images of the spaces around them.
OCTO’s timer settings can be configured to switch lighting on or off at a certain time for a specified duration. The ecosystem can be programmed to welcome you home, for example, or to come on and off while you’re on holiday, creating the illusion that someone is at home.
Integration with OCTO’s motion sensors also means that you can utilise your home’s lighting to react to various occurrences. For example, your interior lighting can be programmed to react if the sensors detect movement outside, it can also assist in energy saving by only illuminating an area when they detect motion.
Paired with a great lighting design, the OCTO ecosystem can enhance the aesthetics of your home, illuminating your chosen features, such as paintings or furniture. And allowing mixtures of warm and cool whites to add ambience for additional effect.
With customisable programming comes the ability to create lighting patterns that suit you and your family, from highlighting cooking activities in the kitchen to creating muted lighting scenes in the sitting room for movie nights all from the touch of a button on your smart phone.
