Sustainable living is increasingly being incorporated into almost every part of the modern Filipino household. With the rapid evolution of lifestyles, Filipinos of all ages are becoming more conscious of their consumption, leading to more energy-efficient home designs in Metro Manila, Cebu, and various other rising urban cities.

Signify, the world leader in lighting, is responding to these needs by offering customizable smart lighting solutions to Filipino households through WiZ Connected Smart Lighting. Signify Philippines’ Commercial Leader for Consumer Channel Paolo Royol shares, “WiZ Connected is perfectly suited for those looking to upgrade their living spaces and begin designing their very own smart home.”

The growing demand for smart home technologies

With Filipinos continuing to spend more time at home with hybrid work set-ups, the ease of lighting controls and home automation is increasingly relevant. In fact, there has been a 71% increase in the demand for smart home control and connectivity devices since the pandemic. 

WiZ Connected is an Internet of Things lighting-enabled provider focused on delivering easy-to-use, Wi-Fi-based smart lighting. A connected light ecosystem means ease in controls for the lights in every room of one’s home. With WiZ Connected, lights can be controlled through external devices like a smartphone or smart assistant, set to operate on a schedule, or triggered by voice or motion control.

One can set up schedules on their WiZ Connected mobile app, so that lights gradually brighten at the start of the day, or dim towards the end of the night, or customize scenarios to make use of the 16 million colors offered by WiZ Connected. The lights can even be set to the circadian rhythm of your body to regulate better sleep amidst our hectic lifestyles.

Motion control is another exciting technological advancement that can modernize our homes, allowing lights to automatically turn on and off when one enters or leaves a room. Unlike traditional motion sensor-based lights, SpaceSense™ detection is based on the wi-fi signals in our home and doesn’t require line of sight during installation. 

Energy management at your fingertips

This ease-in-control also speaks to Filipinos’ desire to improve their home’s energy efficiency, as recent energy woes in the country have led to households being more conservative with unnecessary consumption. Reports have also shown that Filipinos are showing increased interest in energy management.

Smart lighting systems like WiZ Connected help us manage our energy more easily. With the easy-to-use mobile app, one can monitor where energy consumption is highest in the house and be more considerate of how often, and which lights are left on. In general, Signify’s range of lighting products is proven to be more energy efficient with its LED technology that not only helps to save on costs, but is also better for our eyes in comparison to conventional lighting.

Incorporating new ways of lighting a home

Another emerging trend is the use of portable lights on top of overhead lighting to help set a more comfortable mood around one’s home. 

WiZ Connected offers a range of products, from portable lamps that use easy touch panel control and can display a unique dual-zone light effect, to LED strips that are easily attached around desks, counters, and walls for subtle customization. You can also set the right ambiance to transition from work to rest with tunable cool to warm white lights and adjustable brightness, and touch panel to adjust pre-set modes and dimming features according to your liking.

The WiZ Linear Bar lights allow us to enhance our space with vivid and subtle lighting effects via tunable lighting options. Not only that, the compact and slender size lighting is easily fit in every nook & cranny such on bookshelves or even tv rack.

Smart lighting is one of the essential components to a smart home automation ecosystem. All WiZ Connected products work with existing smart home technology like Google Home, Alexa, and Apple HomePods, and the WiZ Connected app was made easy to use so that anyone can set up their smart lights in under a minute. With the rapid acceleration of smart tech adoption in the country these past few years, Filipinos are more than ready to integrate smart technologies into their homes. To learn more about WiZ Connected, you can visit
