Home energy budget getting you down? It’s time to save more.
Recently it’s a topic on the tip of eveybody’s tongues, electricity bills. Since the start of the year, it seems that our home electricty bills keep wandering up, and up, and up. Recent events? Maybe. But whatever the reason for the hike in energy prices is, it seems to be effecting us all. And the best way to solve energy issues is to face the problem head on, and that starts with how we use electricity at home. This is where we, SwitchBot, come in.
Compared with other traditional bulbs, SwitchBot Color Bulb helps you save up to 80% more energy under the same lighting conditions when in use. It can also be remotely turned on or off, so even if you forget to turn your lights off when you leave, you will have a way of controlling them!
What gives you all the control you need, over home lighting, no matter where you are? That’s right, you guessed it, all you’ll need is a SwitchBot Color Bulb.
Save on home energy, time and time again.
Compared with other traditional bulbs, SwitchBot Color Bulb helps you save up to 80% more energy under the same lighting conditions when in use, and it’s also smart, so even if you forget to turn your lights off when you leave, you will have a way of controlling them!
And ok, yes, I know this editorial is kind of about energy saving, but apart from saving energy too, these bulbs can also be adjusted according to temperature and color to create a comfortable living environment depending on what kind of mood you’re in (great for lazy sundays).
But anyways, back to energy saving. One of the best things about SwitchBot Color Bulb is that it is truly intelligent, it can automatically turn itself off when people are not at home (done using a variety of different techniques, like setting schedules, using other SwitchBot products like Contact Sensor and what not) and can automatically turn on lights on occasions like when the first person in the household comes home, or even when you awake at night and try to go to the bathroom (cough, Motion Sensor plug, cough). What’s more, you can also check energy usage via our app to give yourself an even more in-depth idea as to how much energy Color Bulb is using.
So what about SwitchBot Hub Mini? It is really the lifesaver you say it is?
Well, the answer is yes. At least from a smart home point of view when you’re looking at how to set the foundation for a lot of smart devices at home. Hub Mini lets you do so much more with all your SwitchBot devices and is basically the life and soul of our ecosystem. As well as allowing you to control other devices remotely, you can also even use third party smart assistants like Alexa, Google Home, and what not too, and if that’s not enough, SwitchBot Hub Mini also allows you to control other infrared appliances around the house too, and enables your app to act as a remote control by learning and mimicking the signals your ordinary remotes would send out to your devices, not matter where you are. Another great way to save energy.
You see, with Hub Mini, you’ll never have to be afraid of forgetting to turn off electric appliances when going out. It not only saves energy, but it’s also way more convenient. Even more so when using voice assistants with your Apple Watch or by using Widgets.
How to save even more energy at home.
Why not get involved in our #Energychallenge campaign? We’ve teamed up with IFTTT and a bunch of awesome people online to help spread the word about energy saving by being part of a year-long challenge that asks the community to connect their devices, in ways that save energy, money and the environment.
Smart devices by themselves are powerful but connecting them can be even more impactful. Simple automations like connecting your lights to a motion detector can drastically reduce energy consumption and save hundreds of dollars per year.
Help us save $100,000 by the end of the summer.
The #EnergyChallenge was launched less than 4 months ago, on Earth Day, in conjunction with a number of leading tech and Smart Home YouTubers. Already 290 people have taken the challenge to save almost $70,000.
To learn more, visit the #EnergyChallenge site which includes resources on automations, videos from participants, and a counter that records our community’s total savings. Once you’ve created your own automation you can also submit it here for a chance to win a prize or have your idea featured.
You can also check out our social pages. We have regular updates regarding saving energy, and you might just find some tips and tricks too!
