Most of the LEDs used recently for residential purposes come with advanced technology like remote control facilities, enabling interaction between devices.

For residential consumers, connected lighting is a convenient way to manage energy as they link elements of safety, security, and functionality which can be operated with just a couple swipes of a smartphone.

“The home energy management and home automation movements are ramping up, and smart lighting plays an important role in both,” says Jesse Foote, senior research analyst, Navigant Research.

Alternatives like compact fluorescent lights (CFLs) are of course comparatively cheaper but LEDs offer better performance and are associated with minimum health concerns.
