Health, wellness, and indoor air quality remain top concerns for potential home buyers and homeowners, with manufacturers continuing to deliver smart, energy-efficient products that allow for comfortable living. Product manufacturers of home systems continue to innovate, providing smart solutions that allow for air monitoring, light control, and heating control from mobile apps. New indoor air quality products can detect when air flow is suboptimal and automatically correct conditions, while new HVAC products allow homeowners to have a hybrid electric-gas heating solution. Manufacturers are providing touchless light and switch products with smart memory for custom settings and improved energy efficiency as well as products to equip all-electric homes in the near-term future.
Legrand’s Wave Switch is a germ- and worry- free solution that provides homeowners with cleaner control for cleaner spaces. The product’s touchless technology allows users to turn lights on or off with a simple wave anywhere from 1 to 6 inches from the switch. The Wave Switch, available in the radiant line, is available in 15-amp and 20-amp versions and is rated for up to 3⁄4 horsepower (1⁄2 horsepower for 15 Aversion), allowing control of small motors. legrand.us
