Head to your local Home Depot this Thursday March 21st and get FREE step-by-step project details on how to add ambience and energy efficiency to your home in minutes. This week's Home Depot "Do-it-Herself" workshop presented by Lutron  tackles a popular DIY project: installing dimmers and sensors. It's an easy way to add some atmosphere to any room. At the same time, you'll be saving energy. Lutron dimmers and sensors are compatible with energy efficient CFL and LED bulbs.
Lutron’s new Maestro  occupancy sensor is an easy upgrade to any room. The sensor automatically turns the lights on when you walk into a room. Another option is using this as a vacancy sensor. In this mode, the lights must be turned on manually, but when no movement is detected, lights will go off automatically. You can choose either function with the Maestro.
An occupancy sensor is ideal for rooms where you enter with hands-full, such as a laundry room, basement or kitchen. A vacancy sensor is perfect for rooms with lights that are often accidentally left on, such as a child’s room.
The sensing switch works with all types of light bulbs, installs in just minutes (no neutral wired required) and its innovative technology only turns the lights on when there’s not enough daylight in the room. The Maestro occupancy sensor switch is available in a variety of styles, with prices starting at $19.99. And anyone attending the Do-it-Herself workshop this Thursday 3/21 will get a coupon for 20%off!
