Climate change is continuously impacting the earth in negative ways from increasing temperatures and sea levels, changing precipitation patterns, and so much more. It is not just impacting humans, but all species on earth, too, and it’s up to us to change that. By using technology in a smart way, reversing the effects of climate change can be possible and easier to do. Smart technology allows us to integrate our homes with smart devices that help us save energy and reduce our carbon footprint. Another benefit from smart technology is that it is cost-effective and actually ends up saving you money in the long run. Below are some ways that smart technology in the home is helping us reduce our carbon footprint and save on energy.
Save Power with Smart Lights
Smart home devices make it easy for anyone to use less energy without extra effort on your part. All of Atomi’s smart lights can be controlled through the Atomi Smart app on your phone and are also compatible with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant. Using simple voice commands, turn them off or on, change colors and patterns, and more without having to lift a finger! You can also set up convenient daily or weekly schedules for the lights to operate automatically. The automation features and wireless control help to save costs and reduce your carbon footprint because you can know when your lights are on or off, even when you aren’t home. Instead of keeping the lights on all day and wasting power, simply log in to your app to check whether the lights are on or schedule them to turn on/ off at a specific time. Voice commands add extra usability and keeps you hands-free so that you can control your lights the way you want, even without pushing a button
Plus, our portable lights include rechargeable batteries, reducing the amount of battery waste that would typically accumulate from using non-rechargeable batteries instead. All other Atomi lights, such as string lights, pathway lights, sconce lights, and more, include energy-efficient LED chips that last up to 50,000 hours, removing the need to replace lightbulbs! Using LED chips means that you can say goodbye to incandescent lightbulbs once and for all. LED chips uses low power consumption, is highly reliable, and has a long lifespan that benefits your energy savings and maintenance reduction. Think of how many lightbulbs are saved from being added to the landfill! The LED chips replace roughly 25 incandescent light bulbs (incandescent lightbulbs run for roughly 2,000 hours) from being added to a landfill and reducing your carbon footprint. Since all of Atomi’s lights contain energy-efficient features, be confident in using Atomi for all your lighting needs and reducing your carbon footprint at the same time!
Unplug with Smart Plugs
Did you know that your appliances are still consuming power even when they are powered off? As long as an appliance is plugged into a working outlet, electricity is being conducted. Unplugging all of your appliances everyday when you aren’t using them can be a hassle, that’s why we created the Atomi Smart Plug and Atomi Smart Outdoor Plug! These smart plugs don’t provide electricity to appliances that are not in use, which helps you save more efficiently. Through automation and control using the Atomi smart app, have peace of mind in knowing that you will never leave devices running again. For additional convenience, you can set schedules on the Atomi app by automating the outlets to turn on and off at specific times. Take complete control of your home by managing any appliance plugged into the Smart Plug and reduce electricity bills and your carbon emissions!
Control the temperature for less
Why control the temperature for a room that is empty? Using smart fans and smart heaters can help to regulate the temperature of your home only when you need it! All of Atomi’s Smart heaters and Smart fans include app and voice control and scheduling automation so that you can manage temperatures in your home affordably and efficiently. Instead of blasting the heat or air conditioner during the day when no one is home, smart appliances allow you to remotely control them according to your needs. Set the temperature of the appliances on your app so you can walk into your home at the perfect temperature without leaving them running all day. Create and implement a heating or cooling schedule on the app for your appliances to turn on/ off at certain times so that you conserve power and help reverse your carbon footprint.
Additionally, the Atomi Smart WiFi Ceiling Fan uses only 18 watts of energy to produce 1500 lumens of light that lasts up to 50,000 hours. Instead of incandescent lightbulbs, Atomi uses LED chips for a long-lasting lifespan–which means no more changing light bulbs. The fan is also an efficient cooling system and light all in one! The multi-functional Smart WiFi Ceiling Fan replaces the need to purchase a separate light fixture or fan, saving you money and additional appliances from ending up in a landfill. With an included remote control for additional operation, be in control of the temperature whenever you need a change.
Atomi’s Tower Heater uses 1500W PTC ceramic heating technology to warm the surrounding air to 70°F in two seconds flat. At that rate, you can cozy up any space quickly and efficiently. All heaters include a Smart ECO mode setting. This ECO function saves energy by automatically adjusting the heat and power settings when the desired temperature is reached. The smart heater will turn itself on and off automatically when room temperature increases or decreases. Warming up a room is more cost-efficient than warming up an entire house and uses less energy to do so. Atomi’s heaters are the perfect choice for quickly and efficiently warming a room up to 750 square feet, keeping you comfortable in a specific area for longer periods of time.
Smart homes save energy
As the world continues to undergo severe changes in climate, it is important for us to continue utilizing technology for the betterment of the planet. Using and implementing smart technology in our homes will not only saves energy and money, but also reduce our carbon footprint and help the planet. Smart technology is constantly evolving to make our lives more comfortable while also helping us save the planet. One of the easiest ways to reduce carbon emissions is by implementing a smart home. Utilizing smart lights, plugs, fans, and heaters are a few examples of smart technology that benefits you and the environment. It is important for us to do our part while we still can, and Atomi is dedicated to that commitment!
