ON World: Half of Americans Are Interested in Wireless LED Lighting.
July 30, 2014
  San Diego, CA (PRWEB) July 30, 2014         Wireless LED light bulbs will be widespread in American homes within the next five years, according to global technology research firm ON World.     "Reliability has become the number one smart home concern for consumers and ZigBee and the upcoming Thread protocol both provide reliable wireless mesh networking solutions," says Mareca Hatler, ON World's research director.     Wireless LED lighting is one of the fastest smart home and Internet of Things markets with retail sales tripling in 2013. By the end of 2014, most major LED lighting manufacturers will offer wireless LED light bulbs and the majority of these will use ZigBee. ZigBee for residential lighting is supported by the Connected Lighting Alliance that has more than doubled its membership since it was launched in early 2013. Thread is an IP-based low power wireless mesh network protocol for the smart home, promoted by the Thread Group that was just launched in mid-July.         According to ON World's recently published survey with over 1,000 U.S. adults, a third of likely smart home purchasers are interested in buying wireless LED light bulbs.

LED Lighting Company, Solid Apollo LED, Brings Contemporary Elegance to Wall Mounted Dimmers with the Onyx 2 Zone Wireless LED Dimmer.
July 29, 2014
  Seattle, WA (PRWEB) July 29, 2014           Are current wall mount LED dimmers too brightly finished, too cumbersome, too yesterday? Look to Solid Apollo LED's new Onyx 2 Zone In-Wall Wireless LED Dimmer as an elegant modern design ready to bring easy LED control to any surrounding. At night, the LED dimmer has a subtle glow on each of its four buttons, bringing about a futuristic flavor, and the wireless capability significantly reduces installation time. The design has also been created to easily fit U.S. style gang boxes.         The current market for contemporary styled wall mount LED dimmers is limited. Where users desire a dark finish and an extremely subtle design, most current models come in bright colors, without a smooth touch surface, and have a number of graphics preventing a clean design. Even fewer modern LED dimmers come ready to wall mount in U.S. style wall mount shapes.     The Onyx 2 Zone is the polar opposite of current LED dimmers.
