Light occupancy sensors ensure that lights are switched off automatically when the space is not being used, and the lights are switched off even if someone forgot to switch them off when leaving the space/room. Occupancy Sensors are based on motion sensor technology and are recommended for use in areas that have usage at specific times or when needed. See our post on Advanced Light Controls 101.
