As we venture further into Spring, we realise it's a time for fresh starts and new beginnings. Every day people are moving home and trying somewhere new. As we all know, not every home is a new build, so sometimes you have to work with what you've got. Those old fixtures and fittings may not be to your taste, but it's not all lost.
Why not bring your home into the 21st Century and invest in wireless home automation? Z-Wave or LightwaveRF switches, dimmers and sockets can be retrofitted in the home using the existing wiring, without having to even drill a hole. The faceplates are available in a selection of colours; white, brushed stainless steel, black; and fit on a standard back box. These switches can be operated by remote control or even your Smartphone!
To add to your options, this week, Vesternet introduced the Z-Wave Duwi Everlux and the Z-Wave Duwi Arcada. The Duwi Everlux is a white mounting, whith paddle cover and mounting frame. The Duwi Arcada is more modern in design but again provides a mounting frame and paddle cover. These are great ways to start off your wireless kit.
There is no need to worry if your switches or dimmers are from the dark ages. With little disruption and a lick of paint, your home will look modern, and operate efficiently with wireless. Operate your lights or other electrical gadgets with a touch of a button and gain control of your new home.
