Conserve Energy And Save £ With Z-Wave!
It’s no secret that energy costs are skyrocketing, and that public utilities throughout the country are encouraging users to streamline their home energy usage whenever possible. But what you probably didn’t know is that soon, they won’t just be encouraging conservation, they’ll be mandating it. Strict new guidelines on energy usage, designed to reduce loads on public utilities and prevent rolling blackouts, are already in place in EU. Z-Wave makes it easy for you to comply with these new guidelines, and to enjoy substantial savings through intelligent home energy conservation. With Z-Wave, you can easily set up your home so that it only uses the amount of energy you need, nothing more, nothing less.
Let’s start with lighting. Z-Wave allows you to automate your home’s illumination so that you get the lighting you want when you’re at home, and the savings you want when you aren’t. Z-Wave is compliant with virtually any kind of home lighting — incandescent, halogen, fluorescents, even the new dimmable fluorescent fixtures. And adding Z-Wave to your existing lighting is a snap. Simply plug your floor, table and standing lamps into Z-Wave modules, pair them to your system (this takes just a few seconds) and you’re up and running.
You can also easily self-install Z-Wave wall switches and dimmers that will control multiple light sources throughout the house, and also respond to a hand-held remote control from anywhere in your house. There are even Z-Wave photo sensors that can react to the daylight coming into your home and intelligently raise or lower your interior lights to allow the best ambiences and the most energy conservation.
Beyond lighting control, Z-Wave further economizes your energy usage by regulating your HVAC — heating, ventilation and air conditioning. With a Z-Wave enabled thermostat, you could create automated heating or cooling routines based on occupancy or other conditions. For example, when noon sunlight warms up your home, Z-Wave can automatically lower your motorized window shades, which in turn will tell the thermostat to adjust itself to a correspondingly economical setting. Z-Wave can monitor your entire home’s energy usage in just this way, 24/7, which provides you with maximum savings and makes your home greener.
