Save energy by illuminating stairwells and corridors only when they are occupied


            
       
Infrequently occupied areas such as stairwells and corridors can be energy hogs because the lights are needlessly left on 24/7. Occu-Smart bi-level light fixtures can reduce energy costs by illuminating these spaces only when necessary. The fixture features a built-in motion sensor and provides two levels of illumination: full output for when the space is occupied and code-minimum, standby illumination for when the space is empty. Users can set standby illumination at one of four light levels—5%, 10%, 20%, or 30%. An adjustable time delay allows users to customize each fixture to delay dimming from five to 30 minutes.


Applications: Any building with stairwells and corridors, especially hotels, hospitals, schools, offices, and multifamily residential complexes

Availability: Nationwide

Cost: $230 per unit

Options/Sizes: Available in 11 wall- and ceiling-mounted fixtures; optional battery backup provides light for up to 90 minutes in the event of a power failure

Environmental attributes: Can reduce energy usage in infrequently occupied areas by as much as 85%, according to the maker
