Consume less, save more
You hear it all the time. We have to cut down on power consumption. But how can you do that? You can reduce energy consumption by using energy-efficient lamps or LEDs, or you can save energy by using motion detectors. An intelligent electrical installation can also help you reach this goal!
Know how much you consume
Niko Home Control gives you a precise overview of how much energy your family is consuming at any time of day. Your energy consumption (current and daily consumption, average consumption, consumption progression) can be read off per circuit from the eco-display. You can activate this precise monitor to actively save energy and avoid waste.
Replace incandescent lamps with energy-efficient LEDs
Incandescent lamps are real energy guzzlers. By replacing your current lighting with energy-efficient lamps, your energy bills decrease immediately. Niko has a push-button dimmer in its range that is perfectly capable of dimming low-energy lamps, such as economy, low-voltage halogen and halogen lamps (230V). The extensive range of dimmable LED fixtures from Philips© can also be dimmed with this switch.
Heat rooms only when necessary
Using zone heating can save you a whole lot of energy. After all, each room is used at different times and in different ways. So, for example, the children's bedrooms can be heated between 5 and 8 o'clock in the evening during the week. And the bathroom only between 7 and 8 o'clock in the morning and 10 and 11 o'clock in the evening. Perfect control of the temperature in different rooms is a real help for your energy bill.
Do not leave the lights on when they are not needed
Motion detectors are very handy in rooms where the light sometimes remains on without being noticed such as in a storage room, walk-in closet or bathroom. Thanks to a motion detector, the light only switches on when someone is present in the room and is never on when it is not needed. Motion detectors are also useful outdoors: you drive up the driveway and the lighting switches on. When there is no more movement in the garden, the garden lighting is automatically switched off.
