What are the benefits of dimming the lights?

Dimming the lights can be one of the most satisfying things to do after a long day at work.  If you are wondering why most people choose dimmable light bulbs over their standard counterparts, the answer would be probably their aesthetic potential. By manipulating a tiny knob on one’s wall, it is in fact possible to completely alter the mood and ambience of a room in a blink of an eye. However, we should certainly not forget about some less obvious but equally favourable benefits such as reduced energy consumption and improved longevity, meaning that the longer your light bulbs are dimmed, the longer they last and the less energy they use. Today s evolution of LED lights increased these benefits even further, with their massively reduced wattages and huge life span extension, causing that they last even longer than before. But, the appearance of LED has also completely changed the game of dimming.

Qubino offers an assembly of z-wave dimmers that will surely satisfy any need. As the example, we will mention their Micro-module Z-Wave Plus that can vary the intensity of a dimmer-compatible lamp, or the speed of a certain type of the motor (such as a ceiling fan). It can be controlled from your home automation system, but also through the regular switch as there is a possibility of connecting it to a push button, which will control the variation via short or long presses.

This moduleˈ s own power consumption is less than 0.7W and it continuously measures the instantaneous energy used and total consumption of the devices it controls, which means that is very ecological and economical.  But, that is far from all. Since it also contains an input for connecting a temperature sensor, it can be very efficient for managing for example heating, ventilation or air conditioning. Also, thanks to its reduced size and the ability to use any type of power supply (AC or DC), it is very easy to install.
