5 Smart Home Energy Saving Gadgets You Need in 2020
'Smart home' and 'energy-saving' are two terms that go hand in hand. By automating your day to day with smart home technology, you almost guarantee to lower your energy usage, giving your home an environmentally-friendly boost.
Specifically, during the coldest times of the year, energy bills are typically more expensive than usual, and you're no doubt searching for the latest modern conveniences to enhance your home.
At BAZZ Smart Home, lowering your energy bill is just as important to us as simplifying your daily routines! Here are five smart home energy saving gadgets you need in 2020.
1) Smart Lighting Bulbs
How many times have you accidentally left your lights on while running out the door? We're sure it isn't just once.
With smart light bulbs, you can manage your home lighting from anywhere to ensure you aren’t racking up an avoidable energy bill.
Best of all, BAZZ Smart Home light fixtures are LED and last up to 25 times longer than traditional incandescent lighting. For 25,000 hours of usage, an LED bulb will cost you $30 to power, around $150 less than incandescent bulbs.
2) Recessed LED Light Fixture
Recessed light fixtures use more energy than you might think!
Despite their minimal, stylish appearance, their energy usage can pack a punch. Each incandescent bulb is usually at least 25 watts and sometimes exceeds 40 watts. A simple way to bring your recessed fixtures’ energy usage down is to switch to an LED bulb.
BR30 LED Light Bulb
The BR30 LED bulb has a reflective coating and flat shape that it’s perfect for recessed light fixtures. The BAZZ BR30 Smart WiFi RGB LED Bulb not only improves your home’s energy efficiency, but it acts as a plug-in and play smart bulb, allowing you to control lighting, select millions of colors, and create routines!
Converting Recessed Lighting to LED
Did you know that you can make a significant energy saving using the recessed lights already installed in your home? The recessed lights dotted around your kitchen, bathrooms, and hallways can significantly eat into your energy usage, but thankfully, there’s a simple answer.
Households around the world are switching to LED recessed lights to enjoy improved energy efficiency. All you need to do the same is get an LED retrofit kit - an easy to use piece of equipment that upgrades your lights to LED and effortlessly breathes new life into your home.
The switch lowers your energy bills by about 80%, per bulb!
3) Smart WiFi Plugs
A smart plug is a clever little device that can automate the devices already in your household. Once plugged into an outlet and connected to your WiFi network, you can remotely control whatever device is plugged into it - allowing you to turn on your coffee machine when you wake up in bed or even heat your dinner in the slow cooker during your commute from work.
Who knew a plug could be so helpful?!
Think about equipping devices such as televisions, computers and gaming systems with their own smart plugs. By not constantly running all your devices and only using your most energy-draining devices when they are to be used, you lower the amount of energy you waste. Using WiFi Smart Plugs effectively can reduce your home's energy usage by 4.58% every year.
4) Smart Switch
A smart wall switch lets you control your lights from wherever you are. As well as complete lighting control; through the BAZZ Smart Home app, you can monitor your lights’ energy consumption!
No matter if your lights are incandescent, halogen, fluorescent, or LED, this smart switch lets you schedule timers to keep your energy usage in check.
5) Smart Motion Sensor
Installing smart motion sensors in your home makes flipping light switches on and off a thing of the past. Let motion detectors use your presence to turn on and off lighting when you enter and exit a room.
This simple switch to your home can save you more than 35% on light bulb energy usage. What's even more impressive is their ability to double up as a security sensor that sirens an alarm when motion is detected while you're away from home.
Security Light with Motion Sensor
If you’re looking for outdoor lighting that doesn’t run in overdrive, consider the Smart WiFi Outdoor Security Light with HD 720p Camera. Besides providing security and capturing all movements on video, the outdoor light illuminates when motion is detected.
This ensures the light is off at night and is only active when you or a visitor is in the light’s vicinity.
