Clap On Clap Off – A Thing of the Past

Clap on clap off. If you are familiar with these words, you no doubt remember the commercial that went with it. Why was this commercial so popular? Aside from the catchy tune, many appreciated the benefits of having lights turned on with ease. However, today we have come much further in our lighting. Now, lighting control is as simple as the touch of a finger.

Lighting Control

What exactly is lighting control? Wikipedia put it best when it said, “A lighting control system is an intelligent network based lighting control solution that incorporates communication between various system inputs and outputs related to lighting control with the use of one or more central computing devices.”


  • Safety. By being in control of our lighting at the ease of a button, we can ensure that our lights are on when we get home. Lighting will not only make us feel safe, but also do it’s job in preventing burglars from thinking they’re entering an empty home.
  • Saving Energy. Since you are the one in control, you can make sure that your lights never go above a certain percentile. By doing this, you ensure that your energy bill stays low.
  • Clean. Often times we don’t even notice just how many light switches are on our wall. However, once we realize that we don’t necessarily need them, we start to notice. Appropriate lighting control can help us declutter our walls from all the switches.

As you can easily see, these are just a few of the great benefits to lighting control. Clap on clap off may be a thing of the past, but the idea stays the same. Let Riverside Electrical put the ease of lighting control into your home. Give our front desk staff a call today!
