GreenWave Reality  just launched a high-tech WiFi-enabled LED lighting system  that allows consumers to easily control and automate lighting through a handheld remote or smartphone . The energy-efficient “Connected Lighting Solution” was just announced at the Hong Kong International Lighting Fair, where it has been heralded as “the next generation in lighting.”
The GreenWave Reality Connected Lighting Solution  can be used directly out of the box without the need to call an electrician to rewire your home. The innovative solution utilizes Energy Star-certified LED bulbs , while the system’s internet connectivity provides consumers with fully controllable, rich, warm light throughout their homes.
The company estimates that customers using the efficient LED system will save up to $150 a year on their utility bill if they replace just 10 incandescent bulbs. By simply screwing in the new bulbs, consumers can immediately begin to control their lights. The solution comes pre-configured with “home,” “away” and “night” smart controls. Consumers can also create their own custom smart controls to fit their lifestyle, and they can even be set up with motion sensors to automatically turn lights on or off when entering or exiting a room.
“According to Parks Associates, the most desired consumer feature of a smart home is lighting control,” said Greg Memo, CEO of GreenWave Reality . “With our Connected Lighting Solution, we are providing consumers with a powerful, personal way to reduce energy consumption while enhancing the comfort in their home.”
“Advanced features like interactive coaching, energy budgeting, smart controls, and usage alerts all lead to helping consumers reduce wasted energy. The GreenWave Reality end-to-end solution is built on a highly-scalable, secure IP-based network platform that connects all of these devices into an IP ecosystem, creating the foundation for the “Internet of Things.”
