How to control and automate your X10 lights with Sensorflare

We live in a smart and connected world! With more than a thousand compatible devices the possibilities are nearly endless. From lights and locks to thermostats and motion sensors, smart appliances and home security apps the connected home represents a network connecting objects, platforms, and systems with the name the “Internet of Things”, all able to coexist together and offer new opportunities in the field of smart home.

Ready to start building out your smart home? There is a wide misconception that smart homes need special wiring. You can certainly avoid it. In fact, you can install Internet-connected devices step by step, rather than all at once with almost no installation effort. And when it comes to turning on smart lighting, from switches to plugs and bulbs, there are many ways to leave the middle ages and step into an era of intelligent solutions. Imagine locking the doors, turning off the lights, activating the alarm system, and changing the thermostat for bedtime all with one touch.

This connected home – the intelligent home – is an amazing concept. Sensorflare is designed to make you aware of what’s happening with your home and your family, with minimal effort from you.

A smart home is more than just lights and heating. It is all about people. There is a need for a smart home that can adapt itself in order to make the people’s life comfortable. A truly smart home will know who you are, where you are and what you want, all without telling it anything- it can actually think for us.

Whether you are already using Sensorflare or thinking about jumping in, one of the easiest ways you can get started is by controlling and managing your lights!

Do you have a X10 light bulb? Here is how you can have an Intelligent Home by combining it with your Sensorflare account:

  • Control – your light bulb can be controlled remotely via the Sensorflare Android app (iOS coming soon) on smartphone and tablet. Remote control is useful while away but also when you are inside the house meaning you can close the lights while on the bus or check out their status from anywhere with a tap of a button, like this.

  • Smart Combinations – Do you really need to switch on and off the lights each and every time you approach home or you go away? Why not just explain to your house what to do? Sensorflare can do this for you. You can set up your lights to automatically turn off when you leave the house. You can also set them to automatically turn on when you approach. Your are just one step away from having an Intelligent Home!

Go ahead – take that first step toward building an intelligent home and see how it changes your life. See what problems it can solve for you. It really is as easy as screwing in a light bulb. So get out of the dark ages, and start controlling your home from anywhere.
