Lutron Occupancy Sensor Transmitter – PIR / XCT Based
wired / wireless for residential, commercial application
Occupancy sensor or vacancy sensors detect space occupancy and automatically turn lights on when you enter a room and off when you leave. It is a smart and easy way to save energy in commercial applications.
Occupancy sensors eliminates need to manually turn lights on or off. Also, these sensors automatically turn lights on, a person never has to enter a dark room.
Lutron offers highly reliable and accurate occupancy sensor for different sensitivity and applications. These find application in lighting automation and control in residential and commercial areas.
Sensors help meet the mandatory requirements set for building construction and renovation. It also contribute to obtaining points in several LEED credit categories.
