Saving energy seems easy: turn off as many appliances as possible, set your central heating lower, and switch the lights off. The problem is, you can't always think of everything.
Imagine that your central heating never stays on for longer than necessary. Or that you could see at a glance which appliances are unnecessarily consuming a lot of energy... Research shows that it helps if people have a clear overview of their energy consumption: they can easily save up to 15 percent.
Incandescent lamps are real energy guzzlers. However, you would like to manage your lighting in the most energy-efficient way.
Light often determines the ambiance. Dinner with the family, lounging in front of the TV, or perhaps a romantic evening for two? Atmospheric lighting is all part of it! How do you create the right ambiance while also keeping your energy bills in check?
Replace your lighting with LED lamps and your energy bill will reduce immediately. The Niko LED strips may also easily be combined with a dimmer. That way you can create the right ambiance for every occasion without a fuss.

Do you wake up in the morning and go straight to a warm bathroom? Then come home to a nice and warm house after a long day's work?
There's nothing quite like a nice warm house in the winter. But what can you do if you want to heat the house responsibly? Not every room in the house is used at every time of the day. Is it really necessary then to heat up the whole house?
It has happened to all of us at some point: you come home and realise that you left the lights switched on.
Garden lights which are left on all day. A cellar where the lights stay on for several weeks because you hardly ever go there. It can happen. But lights which stay on unnecessarily cost money.
The Niko motion detector automatically switches the light on and off for you.
Inge and Samir live in a farmhouse which they bought seven years ago. They have completely renovated it over the last two years.
Thanks to the Niko Home Control ecodisplay, Inge and Samir can monitor the energy consumption of their home. The washing machine turned out to be the most energy-greedy. By being more conscious of this aspect, their energy bill was reduced.
“We also installed the Niko Home Control motion detectors”, explains Inge. “Now the lighting automatically switches on and off in the dressing room and bathroom. We also often use the 'all-off' button. I can switch off all the lights in one go. It's not just a simple question of comfort, we can clearly make cost savings.”
