Occupancy sensors offer you the convenience of lights automatically turning ON and automatically turning OFF. They are ideal for areas where traffic is sporadic and help ensure you turn OFF the lights when they are not needed. Adding an occupancy sensor can help you gain 35 to 45% in energy savings.
STANDARD’s occupancy sensors use Passive Infrared technology (PIR), which detects body heat in motion to trigger activation. Collector beams from the sensor lens scan the area constantly, turning on the lights when occupancy is detected. PIR technology is line-of-sight only; therefore when installing the sensor, it is important to ensure nothing obstructs the view of the lens.
These devices are battery-free and harvest energy through photovoltaic cells; they can hold a full charge for up to 150 hours; this means that the sensors will continue to operate for over 6 days without any light in the room.
The sensors offer you 4 unique tests which help you measure light level input, signal strength, proper placement and sensitivity adjustment. These tests ensure you install the sensor right the first time around!
- Light Level Test
- Range Confirmation Test
- Walk Test Mode
- Sensitivity Adjustment Mode
In order to facilitate your STANDARD wireless lighting controls installation, we built several instruction videos to guide you through programming as well as others to help you test the correct functioning of your system. Read Learn how to program STANDARD wireless controls to know more.
