Lighting Package

Master the mood of your home with smart lighting. Lighting automation allows you to control five circuits of lighting in your home from your smart phone, whether you’re home or away. Scenes give control of multiple lights from one touch. Schedules can create regularly occurring events, such as turning on your balcony light at sunset. And when you have your hands full, control your lights with simple voice commands, such as “Alexa, turn the lights on”.

Smart Plugs can control existing devices, such as lamps, electric blankets and other appliances. Devices attached to a Smart Plug enjoy the same power and flexibility as other devices, such as control from scenes, scheduling, and voice.

Lighting Package Details

The Lighting Package is built on Nero by Environexus. Nero are small devices installed behind a light switch, which communicate wirelessly and securely to a central gateway. A key benefit of Nero is control through a smart phone or voice, while retaining local control of a device from a switch on the wall.

The Nero Gateway allows for the creation of scenes and schedules.

Schedules can control devices at regularly occurring times, such as turning the balcony light on at sunset, or turning the bedroom lights on when you wake up during the week. With the Blinds package added, a schedule could be set to lower the blinds two hours before sunset to reduce glare in the apartment.

Scenes allow for easy control of multiple devices through either the touch of a button or a simple voice command. They can be used to set the mood (such as a dining scene), to turn off all the devices in your home (such as a Goodbye scene), or to turn on key lights when you arrive home (such as a Welcome scene).

Voice control support gives you control of your lighting devices through simple commands, such as “Alexa, turn the bedroom lights on”, or “Alexa, turn the living lamp on”. Scenes can be controlled through commands such as “Alexa, good morning”, which could turn on your bedroom lights and give you today’s weather and news headlines

The Lighting Package contains automation of five lighting circuits, including replacing standard rocker buttons with push buttons where relevant. Additional lighting circuits are available for purchase.
