The Connected Homes; State of the Market 2020 report says that over 7.5 million homes across Europe now have connected home energy devices. This figure is expected to grow by 13% in 2020. 

What is a connected home? 

Connected homes include climate controls, remote heating management, home energy management, and home automation products such as smart lighting. 
Lightwave smart home controller and dimmer
We recently installed and setup this home automation system using Lightwave equipment. 
 
Lightwave is a smart home range that has been designed to be simple to install and easy to integrate with other smart home products. Each dimmer or plug socket looks, behaves and can be installed like a standard socket or dimmer. It can all be controlled via your smart phone or tablet with clever features like time delays and triggers. 
 
Our clients now have full control of their lighting wherever they are. 
Underfloor heating is one of the fastest growing sectors of the UK’s heating industry. 
 
It accounted for around 7.7% by value in 2019, according to a recent report which makes forecasts for the sector to 2024. It is expected to continue growing annually at 4 to 6% for the next four years. 
Not the sort of roses that we are all thinking about as Valentine’s Day approaches, but the often-overlooked ceiling rose for electric lights. 
 
The world’s first BS67 smart ceiling rose has been created because someone had a really simple idea. In fact, it was so simple, he assumed it had already been done. 
Just like us, the UK’s housing stock is starting to feel its age. 
 
Almost four out of 10 (38%) of our homes were built before 1947, which makes them some of the oldest and leakiest in Europe. 
In a security- and efficiency-conscious environment a building management system (BMS) can be used to manage fire alarms, and to coordinate controls for timers, thermostats, fans and lights. Most importantly a BMS can save energy. 
 
Building energy management is now catching up with LED lighting as the most popular way for businesses to reduce energy costs. 
 
While around two thirds of the businesses introducing energy management systems have 1000 employees or more, there’s still scope for smaller organisations to make significant savings. 
Would you like to reduce the heating, lighting and power bills for your business by 10% or more without any additional investment? 
 
If you’re willing to make a small investment, savings of 20% to 50% are possible – equivalent to increasing sales by 5% for many businesses. 
 
That’s why 63% of companies say that they are acting to reduce their energy use.
