LONDON-BASED Teucer is a well-established company specialising in LED strip and extrusions. It offers a wide range of high-quality LEDs in a variety of colours, tunable whites and various wattages to commercial and high-end residential customers.
It also offers a bespoke customisation service to installers so that all the different components can easily be connected together. This speeds up the installation and ensures a top-quality end result.
For the electrical contractor, there is great range of videos to help with the assembly and installation of the LEDs.
Teucer’s new range of Smart WIFI switches and dimmers – which will be demonstrated at the LuxLive 2019 exhibition in London in November – can be used as a direct replacement for existing switches but offer so much more in terms of usability, features and control.
These provide you with new ways to control your lighting through a dedicated phone/tablet app and virtual assistants. The ‘Smart Life’ app allows you to create a truly personalised experience from scene setting to controlling other connected devices remotely.
You can control the lighting and any other connected devices from wherever you are. You can add sensors and control scenes and settings remotely. For example, when you are away, you can switch and dim the lights so it looks as if your home is occupied.
The core of the system, and the feature that provides the real benefits, is the built-in Wi-fi.
The tempered glass wall plates (as 1, 2 and 3 gang versions), pictured top right, allow you to control the lighting directly without the need for any complicated hubs, bridges or gateways.
Like the Smart WIFI dimmer, the switch is compatible with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant.
In conjunction with the Smart WIFI switch is the Smart WIFI dimmer. You can simply replace your existing wall plate.
As well as the usual functions such as scene setting, timing on/off and app control, the Teucer dimmer is compatible with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant. You just tell the dimmer what to do!
Maybe the most exciting feature of the range is the Smart WIFI socket.
You can connect any other Wi-fi enabled home appliance and control it with the Smart WIFI app or a virtual home assistant.
The standard 3-pin socket has an additional Wi-fi receiver.
It also has a visible power consumption indicator which can give you information about any appliance just at a glance.
If you want more detailed energy information, the app can display the usage data with just a few clicks on your phone.
Like the other Teucer Smart products, no hubs, bridges or gateways are required and the socket is compatible with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant.
The whole system meshes the various separate parts seamlessly. What’s more, it will also work with the majority of other LED products in the market.
