Hallway - Walk Through Areas
Install an Infrascan
An indoor Infrascan in a hallway or walk through area can provide dramatic cost savings because they automatically switch off the lights when they are not needed. Infrascans operate on body heat movement so when you enter the area, the lights will turn on and when you leave they will turn off after a suitable delay.
Ensure you install a Smoke Alarm
Smoke alarms are now mandatory in all new homes in most states of Australia. Smoke inhalation is the main cause of death in domestic fires and as the smell of smoke won't wake you, a quality detection network is essential.
The early warning a smoke alarm provides means less chance of major fire damage and, more importantly less chance of lives being lost.
Smoke alarms can be mains powered, with a 9V battery backup as an additional safety feature. Also available are smoke alarms that run off a 9V battery. The smoke alarm provides constant visual status that the system is working correctly, includes a hush facility, and up to 40 units can be interconnected together. This means if one alarm is triggered all other interconnected alarms will be triggered, alerting everyone in the house.
Consider installing Dimmers or Smart Meks for variable
Dimmers and Smart Meks are ideal for all types of lounge rooms and living areas. You can reduce the intensity of the lights when watching a movie or to set the mood for a romantic evening.
Smart Meks are an economical way of adjusting light intensity. Available in both dimmers and timers, Smart Meks look like any normal switch but with the added benefit of fully controlled, adjustable lighting.
