Bluetooth® Mesh smart home dimmer switches are revolutionising the way we control lighting and other electrical devices in our homes. These switches use wireless technology to communicate with each other, creating a mesh network that allows for efficient and easy control of home power points, lights, fans, garage doors and even blinds.
This makes Bluetooth® Mesh smart home dimmers switches like PIXIE an ideal alternative to legacy, wired, home automation systems for many reasons.
Compared to legacy home automation systems that require centralised control and specialised wiring systems, Bluetooth® Mesh smart home dimmer switches offer several benefits that are democratising smart home solutions for more homeowners.
1. Easy Installation and Setup
One of the primary benefits of Bluetooth mesh smart home dimmer switches is their easy installation and setup process.
Unlike legacy home automation systems, which require specialised wiring and programming by an expert with a computer plugged into the system, Bluetooth mesh smart home devices like PIXIE can be installed by licensed electricians in Australia using the existing electrical cabling in the home .
These switches are wireless, fit into existing wall plates which means they don’t require complex wiring or additional costs for new wall plates, making the installation process simple, cost effective and hassle-free.
The setup process is equally straightforward. Once the switches are installed, they can be easily configured and controlled using the PIXIE mobile apps. This app allows homeowners to adjust lighting levels, create schedules, and even set up automation rules, all without the need for specialised programming skills.
Another benefit of Bluetooth mesh smart home dimmer switches is their scalability.
Legacy home automation systems often require a significant investment in hardware and infrastructure to support correct operation at a significant premium for cabling and installation labour. Whilst the wired system can offer some more advanced capability with respects to certain aspects of a smart home like audiovisual control and systems integration, in contrast, Bluetooth mesh switches can be easily added to the network as needed, without requiring any additional infrastructure or hardware.
This scalability makes Bluetooth mesh switches an excellent choice for homeowners who want to start small and gradually expand their smart home capabilities.
For example, a homeowner may start by installing switches in a few rooms, then gradually expand to include more switches throughout the home.
Perhaps the most significant benefit of Bluetooth mesh smart home dimmer switches is their cost-effectiveness. Legacy home automation systems often require a significant investment, specialised wiring and for system changes, regular visit from an approved technician to update the system, which can be prohibitively expensive for many homeowners.
In contrast, Bluetooth mesh switches are relatively affordable, making them an excellent choice for homeowners on a budget and are configured by the home owner using the mobile App. No need for expensive technicians and call out fees.
In addition to being cost-effective, Bluetooth mesh switches like PIXIE also offer significant energy savings. These switches are designed to be highly efficient, which means they use less energy than legacy home automation systems to to remain operational. This can help homeowners save money on their energy bills, while also reducing their environmental impact.
Conclusion – The simplest way to increase the IQ of your Home
Bluetooth mesh smart home dimmer switches offer several benefits that are democratising smart home solutions for more homeowners.
These smart dimmer switches are easy to install and set up, scalable, and cost-effective, making them an excellent choice for homeowners who want to enjoy the benefits of smart home technology without the need for specialised wiring or programming.
Compared to legacy home automation systems, which require centralised control and specialised wiring systems, Bluetooth mesh switches offer a wireless approach that is easy to install, use, and expand.
With these benefits in mind, it’s easy to see why Bluetooth mesh smart home dimmer switches from PIXIE are becoming increasingly popular among homeowners looking to upgrade their home to a smart home.
