Lighting has gone through a transition from more traditional heat-generating incandescent bulbs to significantly more efficient light technologies — but we are on the cusp of even bigger change as LED lighting is fast becoming the new standard. In short, lights a decade ago used a high amount of electrical energy to produce a small amount of light and a large amount of heat. This has evolved to much more efficient high-light, low-heat lighting. As the bulbs themselves are changing, so too are the switching methods.
The newer low power LED lights open a whole new era of dimming, motion detection, scene setting, creative lighting and mobile access for your home. Industry Standards are just starting to be established in this area and as a result it can be confusing and disappointing to buyers that don’t have the experience with selecting the correct technology for the job.
