Case Study

In the past year our homes have played an unforeseeable bigger role in all our lives that no one could of thought imaginable. Most homes across the UK still lack basic smart lighting functionality that can truly transform a living space in more ways than one.

In this case study, we explore how this homeowner used our OCTO smart lighting connected system to take complete control of their lighting and create beautiful spaces within their home.  

Imagine a driveway that illuminates automatically when you return home on a dark evening, kitchen lighting that brighten during food preparation and dims for relaxing meal times, and bedrooms that are only lit when occupied whilst all controlled via an intuitive, easy to use app on your smart device? That’s OCTO. The possibilities are truly endless.

OCTO has a thriving ecosystem of products to choose from. This install saw the Krait LED Strip, Cobra LED Strip, Tandem bi-Directional w/ Wiz GU10's along with some Twistlock downlights installed that also utilised the OCTO WIZ GU10 RGBTW Smart Lamp . Which is suitable for any GU10 compatible product. 

Both the Krait and Cobra were installed throughout the kitchen and surrounding area which allowed the homeowner to create stunning spaces using various colours. The Krait’s 24V input offers greater efficiencies and option of longer LED strip sizes. It offers single colour, RGB, RGBW and tuneable white flexible LED strip with a self-adhesive back. Fast fit plug and play connections remove the need for time consuming soldering of joints and features cutting points of 3000K, 4000K: 100mm RGB, RGBW and 167mm Tuneable (only if required).

The Cobra is a high density (brightness) single colour and RGB flexible LED strip with self-adhesive back. Like the Krait LED, it also comes with fast fit plug and play connections which remove the need for time consuming soldering of joints.

The Krait and Cobra together transformed the kitchen space and created spaces that were truly magical. The homeowner could use the power of OCTO to set lighting scenes and aminations that can be timed to welcome them home in the evening, wake them up in the morning and dim the output when necessary. Scenes can be created for  a whole range of purposes and are completely customisable.

Along the outside of the home is where you’ll find our Tandem bi-Directional Wall light. A modern wall light with an aluminium construction with graphite textured paint finish. The Tandem is a great LED solution due to how well it balances form and function. It can blend in seamlessly with the overall aesthetic. The OCTO WIZ GU10 Smart Lamp provided all the great features as it was installed in the Tandem. It has voice activated compatibility; offers handsfree controls, which is perfect for domestic and commercial properties and fully dimmable from 10% to 100%. OCTO can also integrate motion sensors in to a network of luminaires, for both interior and exterior environments. This means the OCTO enabled Tandem will only illuminate an area when they detect motion. Saving  on energy costs.

The Twistlock GU10 Downlight completed the quartet of Ansell products installed. Manufactured from high grade die-cast aluminium and featuring a generous size of terminal housing for ease of wiring, the Twistlock is a popular downlight for its value for money and reliability. It comes with a five year warranty and is IP20 rated which means the product is touchproof and will be resistant to dust or objects that are over 12mm in size.

Together the products worked flawlessly and enabled complete control for the user within their home. The OCTO platform provided incredible benefits and the user was able to benefit from OCTO’s ability to be updated over the air which means the system continues to improve providing great post-purchase value.
