Occupancy Sensing switches are commonly used to control lighting and extract ventilation. They will save energy by ensuring lights and fans are not left on. The energy savings will be high with a short energy-saving investment payback time if connected to average energy level lightings such as fluorescent tubes, or compact fluorescent lamps. Higher savings if controlling tungsten or halogen lighting. In a domestic application, these products are well suited to rooms such as integral garages, storerooms, toilets, or any other room where lighting may accidentally be left turned on. Potential energy savings in commercial property will be far greater with shorter payback times, generally less than one year.
This product is ideally suited to circulation areas, storerooms, toilets, kitchens, common stairs wells or corridors where there are frequently people passing in an out of an area and the lighting often gets left on all day. Payback is the time it takes for an investment in energy conservation to repay its cost in energy savings. All our PIR and microwave switches have CE marking and have a 1-year warranty.
