Product Description

The Lightwave Lighting & Power Starter Kit is one of the easiest way to start your journey into Smart Home connected living.  The kit includes the Lightwave Link Plus Hub, a Lightwave Smart Socket (2 gang), and a Lightwave Smart Dimmer (1Gang).

The Lightwave Link Plus hub is the brain of your setup, helping connect all your devices together and in turn allowing you to control your socket and lights from your smartphone device.

The Lightwave smart socket gives you smart control of your home appliances and the Lightwave smart dimmer lets you control your current lighting.

Both can be controlled manually, but most fun starts when you install the LightwaveRF smartphone app. You can set timers, schedules, lighting moods and check energy usage all from within the app.

With the LightwaveRF Like Plus Hub, you can add an additional 48 devices, so future expansion is a breeze.

How Easy is it to install?
