On average, a home in New Zealand that uses all-electric appliances, heating, and lighting consumes roughly 10,000 kilowatt hours of electricity—and that is just for a year. In fact, electricity accounts for 69% of residential energy consumption in the country.
This includes water and space heating, appliances such as dishwashers and computers, and lights. The good news is that there are energy-efficient smart home automation systems in Auckland, New Zealand that can not only save you time, energy, and money, but also save the planet.
Lights alone take up 8% of the residential energy used in a year. This level of consumption costs an average house approximately $2,000—but its impact on the earth is even more severe because it emits 1.4 tonnes of carbon dioxide annually. The price of electricity usage is high and not just in terms of money but also in terms of global warming.
A smart home lighting automation in NZ can not only control your lights but also the temperature, irrigation, power outlets, intelligent dimming, and power strips in your home. You would be able to track and manage the energy usage through your smart phone and save your lighting energy by up to 45%. You could also set up scenes that activate with a single touch when you leave your home. One touch from your phone and the system will automatically lock all doors and turn off lights and fans and other cooling appliances. Smart home lighting makes use of a wireless system that is fuss-free to install, requires no construction, and doesn’t make a mess. Whether your house is brand new or not, the system can be installed without any trouble and be up and running in no time. With this system installed, you can relax knowing that you are saving money and time, and that you are also doing your part in making the world a better place.
