Occupancy sensors

Did you leave the light on? Install occupancy sensors

Picture an empty room with the lights left on. That probably wasn’t hard to do! You see it all the time. The problem is, your utility company charges you for the electricity whether you're using the lights or not.

Occupancy sensors will automatically turn the lights off, and put money back in your pocket. The sensors use motion-detection technology to turn lights on and off in rooms experiencing infrequent use. Installing sensors or timers can be ideal for:

  • storage rooms
  • break rooms
  • restrooms
  • offices
