What is a ‘commercial’ application?

Tackle any project big or small

LightwaveRF is a great way to create a smarthome where you can control lighting, heating and power from your smartphone. However, it is also an excellent way to provide these controls in larger buildings and commercial premises.

'Light' commercial

Without modification or any complex planning, LightwaveRF can be easily retrofitted to shops, bars, small hotels and offices and controlled in the same manner as a domestic house. It can provide a very cost effective way to conveniently control lighting and heating out of hours, to turn off electrical devices, and to monitor energy use. All these measures can provide significant energy saving benefits justifying the cost. Because no expensive training, planning and changes to the building fabric are required, LightwaveRF brings smart building control within reach of small businesses which otherwise may not be able to afford this level of control.

Larger sites

With a little bit of guidance from LightwaveRF, our commercial software can link hundreds of LightwaveRF devices together on the same network; therefore, we can also tackle much larger projects, such as universities, schools, care homes and holiday parks for a fraction of the cost of a traditional building management system. LightwaveRF can even cover multiple sites on one account login on your smartphone.

University case study

To show what can be achieved in a commercial context, hundreds of tablet controllable LightwaveRF devices were fitted to 300 offices in a large campus building at the University of Warwick. The result, as illustrated in an official study, was an energy saving of up to 46%, largely due to reductions in heating costs. LightwaveRF is ideal for this kind of application. It is also ideal for controlling and monitoring student and managed accommodation. Live heating and energy data can also be displayed and recorded over time to help manage energy costs.
