Why swap out your LightMaster system?

The LightMaster System was an excellent system when it was launched in 2008, providing excellent functionality over the years.

In 2021 Philips ceased production/support of the LightMaster System, and replaced it with the Philips Dynalite Lighting Control System.

There may be a number of reasons why it may be necessary for you to consider an upgrade to a newer system that offer improved features, compatibility, and support. Here are a number of reasons you may be considering an upgrade:


  • Outdated Technology: The Philips LightMaster system may have become outdated over time, with newer and more advanced lighting systems available in the market.


  • Cost Efficiency: Newer lighting systems may offer better energy efficiency and cost savings in the long run, making them a more appealing alternative to the LightMaster system.


  • Improved Functionality: The replacement system might offer enhanced features and functionalities that can contribute to better lighting management and control.


  • Better Compatibility: The new system could be more compatible with other smart home devices and integration options, allowing for a more seamless and interconnected lighting experience.


  • Maintenance and Support: If the LightMaster system is facing issues with maintenance or lack of support from the manufacturer, it may be more practical to replace it with a more supported and reliable alternative.


  • Design and Aesthetics: The replacement system might offer more modern and aesthetically pleasing design options that can enhance the overall interior or exterior lighting ambiance.


  • Integration with Smart Home Technology: Upgrading to a new lighting system could allow for better integration with other smart home technologies, enabling users to control their lighting through voice commands or smartphone apps.


  • Improvements in Lighting Quality: The new system may offer better lighting quality, such as improved colour rendering, brightness levels, or customizable lighting presets, enhancing the overall lighting experience.


  • Safety and Security: The replacement system might offer additional safety features, such as motion sensors or remote monitoring capabilities, increasing security and peace of mind.


  • Long-Term Viability: If the LightMaster system is no longer actively supported or its components are difficult to find or replace, it may be more sensible to transition to a new and more sustainable lighting system.

Ultimately, the decision to swap out your Philips LightMaster system depends on your specific circumstances, requirements, and preferences. Eclipse would recommend a full system analysis and  site survey to match the correct technology to your system and user requirements.
