The concept of home automation has been around for many years but has never become mainstream due to the high cost and complexity of the solutions on offer. LightwaveRF has already begun to change all of this by offering a high level of sophistication and functionality at a fraction of the price of most other systems.
Wherever you see the LightwaveRF symbol, it means that your device has this unique technology built-in and can be linked together with other LightwaveRF devices to create a tailored smart home system piece by piece. Just look for the green LightwaveRF symbol.
Using a LightwaveRF remote or smartphone, you can remotely dim, create preset moods and group as many dimmers and lamps as you like into a lighting scene. Each mood or scene can be recalled at the touch of a button.

The only installation necessary is to substitute it for your existing bulb and you are ready to go!
