Remote controls have been around for many years and in this time they have evolved into neat simplistic systems making it easy to switch lights on and off with no need to work inside the house. There are various brands to choose from but the following are our favourites. We have installed these many times over the years because they offer reliability along with ease of installation.
This remote control is modular and very powerful. With a operating range of 1km you should be able to control your lights with ease. If you want to extend this, Light Symphony offer repeaters to boost the signal further to up to 5km! One of the great things about Light Symphony is the options on how you can switch your lights on. You can use a hand held controller, a fob, wireless wall switch, a PIR sensor, timer, beam sensors and when your electric gates open these will also switch the lights on.
However, we have left the best way of controlling your lights until last; you can use your iPhone, Android smartphone, iPad or tablet. This system allows you to dim your lights and if you want, you can choose one of 16 colours (if your lights are RGB LEDS that is).
Light Symphony remote receivers all come with a soft start, dimming off and dimming as standard (with compatible light fittings).
You can use Light Symphony to switch lights on and off, control water features, garage doors, electric gates, security lights etc.
