With millions of square feet being unnecessarily illuminated in hallways, bathrooms, corridors, and stairwells all over the world, thousands of watts are wasted by fully lighting these seldom-used spaces. That’s why Lamar Lighting, Farmingdale, N.Y., recently developed Occu-Smart, a new line of motion sensor-controlled fixtures that offer standby lighting levels in unoccupied spaces. Full output is achieved only when the space is occupied. Lighting levels are kept low during standby to address safety and security concerns.

Developed in conjunction with The Watt Stopper, a leader in sensor technology, and NYSERDA, and the New York State Energy Research Authority, Occu-Smart consolidates state-of-the-art motion sensor technology with multi-level ballast capabilities, allowing users to save money on their energy bills without sacrificing light levels, safety, or lamp life. In standby mode, energy consumption may be as little as 8W.

You install the fully integrated components just like any ordinary fluorescent fixtures. After mounting, the user can manually adjust the sensitivity and dwell time to suit each application. Additionally, the 100-hr burn-in switch ensures proper lamp conditioning for longer lamp life, eliminating flickering.
