Saving with energy-efficient lighting is more than just updating technology; it’s also about how long the lights stay on.
Occupancy sensors detect activity within a certain area, so they provide convenience by turning lights on automatically when someone enters a room, and reduce lighting energy use by turning lights off soon after the last occupant has left the area. Motion sensors are great for any room where lights are often inadvertently left on, or where lights are used sporadically.
Ideal for small and large buildings, the sensors can help save as much as 20% in restrooms, 50% in storage rooms, and 80% in stairwells. Occupancy sensors also make it easy to control lighting, and reduce energy use.
Sensor units typically consist of a motion sensor, an electronic control unit, and a controllable switch. It also has a timer which signals the electronic control unit after a set period of inactivity. Units can be installed indoor or outdoor, and are typically wall-mounted.
Occupancy sensors are a great way to save you even more, and that’s why they are our feature product for the month.
