Smart Home Lighting Systems: Save Energy & Money
In 2016, total global energy came from 80% of fossil fuels (coal, natural gas, and petroleum). The main fossil fuel being used is natural gas (32%), coal (30%), and petroleum (1%). Processing all three forms have numerous damaging environmental impacts, such as air and water pollution, soil contamination, etc. For example, 6% of greenhouse emissions in the world derive from energy used for lighting. Globally, 19% of electricity use is for commercial and residential lighting. With new smart lighting, residential energy use will decline by more than 50% in the range of 1K kW hours per household per year from 2012 to 2040. A typical lamp using a traditional light bulb consumes 60 watts of power, and a compact fluorescent lamp emits the same amount of light while using only 13 watts. However, smart lighting using light-emitting diode (LED) bulbs consumes only 10 watts to give off the same amount of light. Besides conserving energy, smart lighting systems enabled with the Internet of Things (IoT) technology can save people money by allowing them to remotely control their lighting, which lowers their energy use and saves them money. According to a report, new lighting technologies can reduce lighting energy by up to 75%. Also, by using LED lights, which are more energy-efficient and last up to 10 years, smart home lighting systems lower energy bills over time.
