- Published: Monday, 09 June 2014 14:34
Energy efficient controls from LightwaveRF have been used in conjunction with Megaman’s energy saving lamps in a demonstration house that forms part of BRE’s seminal sustainable refurbishment project the BRE Victorian Terrace, on the world renowned BRE Innovation Park in Watford Hertfordshire.
The Park is a mini-community of demonstration homes and buildings that have pushed the boundaries of global knowledge on delivering sustainability in the built environment. It features a range of unique and diverse approaches to sustainable design, construction and refurbishment and a host of innovative low carbon products, materials and technologies.
The centre is available for events and away days and well as offering the opportunity for networking and providing a basis for a knowledge sharing hub. Visitors will be able to see the latest state-of–the-art technology from LightwaveRF in the remote control of the lighting and heating in the facility and the benefits of using this in conjunction with Megaman’s energy saving lamps.
LightwaveRF products have been used throughout the house and include LED Dimmers, mood lighting controllers in the kitchen, sockets, wire-free bedroom wall switch, inline relay for bedroom blind control, radiator control and magnetic door light switch on wardrobe. The system is all controlled via the Link which is displayed next to the house router. An energy monitor can also be found on site, allowing you to observe how much energy the house is consuming and therefore saving through use of Megaman and LightwaveRF products. The LightwaveRF controls are used in conjunction with a variety of Megaman lamps to offer a complete sustainable housing solution with lamps. These include 6W GU10 for ceiling illumination, 13W Dimming LED GLS pendants over the kitchen worktop, 7W GX53 lamps highlighting the wardrobe shelves and IncandaLED candles in a crystal chandelier to act as an attractive feature in the living area.
One of the world’s leading brands in energy efficient lighting, Megaman is also the UK wholesale and retail distributor for LightwaveRF who provide stylishly crafted, energy efficient wireless home automation lighting, power and heating devices. LightwaveRF is a range of intelligent dimmers, radiator valves, sockets and sensors that are just that little bit smarter. Whilst they look and work just like ordinary dimmers, valves or sockets, they will change forever the way you control your heating, lighting and power in your home.
The LightwaveRF product range can be retro-fitted with no extra wiring required and controlled over an internet connection from a smartphone, tablet or from a hand held remote control making control simple and convenient from the home, office, or indeed anywhere in the world. The collaboration between Megaman and LightwaveRF means that a ‘smart’ home is now within everyone’s reach.
