Before discussing the benefits of using remotes, let's take a minute to explore the technology. In the concrete construction industry, wall saws and wire saws were some of the first machines to use radio remote controls for operation. Now, demolition robots, surface preparation grinders and core drills can all be operated remotely. Some manufacturers have taken the technology from radio frequencies and/or cords and have evolved the products to use cordless, Bluetooth technology. This enables more responsive communication from remote to a machine. It also enables the operator to stand farther away while still in full control of the operation.

As is known to us all, anyone who wants to change the lighting modes or brightness level needs to remove his or her hand from the handlebar when he takes a bike riding at night. This might be very dangerous when you control your bike with only one hand, especially for those riding into the darkest wild. Unless you keep a good experience in bike riding for many years, you might need to look down to seek the position of modes-changing buttons on your bike light. This will let you pay more attention to bike riding events and your safety as well.

However, accidents always occur when drivers don't focus ahead of them or get sidetracked by other operations, and this also works for bike riding in the dark.

An obvious benefit of using a remote controller is that it is a much more convenient operation than the traditional bike lights. There’s no need for you to remove your hands from the bars; both brightness level and modes changing can be done easily with your thumb only.

WUBEN B1 professional bike light series are all equipped with a wireless remote controller in package, with which you can conveniently change the lighting modes. Remote comes with a silicone strap for mounting, you can mount it next to the handlebar position where you hold so that it will be convenient for you to finish modes-changing by your thumb easily without staring down at the remote or light. Cordless and unrestricted, you don’t need to worry about cable broke that causes much trouble again.
