Product Description

When people mention Smart Home Lighting, a common mistake is to forget about connecting all your power and lighting devices together. The Lightwave Link Plus hub is the sometimes forgotten missing link, which can control more than 250 LightwaveRF devices.

This new hub has excellent range that sits alongside your home Wi-Fi without interruptions.  Upgraded for even more superior range, one hub is more than capable of giving coverage to any large house.

Once installed, simply synchronise your LightwaveRF devices to the hub, and it will respond to commands in a split second – even when you are away from home.

When used in conjunction with the free Lightwave app, you can also monitor status and energy consumption (Generation 2 devices) from your iPhone, Android or Tablet – something not available with the old V1 hub.
