Lighting Sensor Comparison
One way to reduce lighting consumption is to simply turn lights off when they are not needed. Another approach is to install lighting controls such as occupancy sensors. You can reduce lighting energy use by 50% in existing buildings and by at least 35% in new construction, according to the New Buildings Institute.
Two or more technologies minimize false detection, usually passive infrared (PIR) and ultrasonic, or PIR and audio.
PIR or ultrasonic sensors with a light-level sensor.
PIR, ultrasonic, or combination/hybrid sensor and control circuitry packaged into one unit. Sized to fit in a standard wall box.
PIR, ultrasonic, or hybrid sensors designed to be mounted separately from the control unit(s), usually in high locations.
PIR or ultrasonic sensors designed specifically for bathrooms, hallways, and stairwells.
Can be very reliable, allowing wide coverage and applications.
Can be wired to a dimming circuit to control room lighting based on available light and occupancy.
Small, inexpensive and easy to install.
Can cover wide areas effectively; switching units can control a variety of equipment.
Specifically designed for these spaces.
Large, open areas and areas with unusual occupancy patterns or work requirements.
Areas that receive large amounts of daylight.
Smaller meeting rooms, individual offices, and storerooms.
