Tired of fumbling for the light switch when your hands are full of groceries or laundry? Or, tired of someone always forgetting to turn off the light? The Lutron Maestro Occupancy Sensor Switch can help you with both. Simply replace your light switch with the Lutron sensor, and it will automatically turn lights on for you when you enter a room. What’s more, it will turn the lights off after you leave. By making sure the lights are on only when you need them, the Lutron Maestro Occupancy Sensor Switch can save you as much as 50% in energy costs.
The sensor works with all light bulb types, including LEDs, and easily installs in as little as 15 minutes in virtually any room in your home. The time delay before the lights turn off is adjustable. It can be set as low as one minute – great for smaller rooms, like a powder room – or as long as 30 minutes, which is best for larger spaces, such as a bedroom.
The Lutron Maestro Occupancy Sensor Switch has a number of additional features to make sure it works with the way you live in your home. Don’t need the lights to come on because it’s daytime? The sensor switch is smart and can detect daylight, so the lights only turn on when needed.
Don’t want your pet running up the light bill while you’re not home? Or, don’t want the lights turning on when you get up in the middle of the night to use the bathroom? The automatic on-feature can be disabled. The switch is then manually turned on, but the sensor will still automatically turn off the lights. This is perfect for bedrooms or homes with pets.
Worried that the sensor won’t know you’re still in the room? The Lutron Maestro Occupancy Sensor Switch uses proprietary sensing technology that detects fine motions, such as turning a page or typing at a computer. This ensures the lights stay on while the room is occupied.
Also available is the Maestro C•L Occupancy Sensing Dimmer, which combines a sensor with a Maestro digital C•L dimmer. The sensor turns lights on and off. The dimmer can dim most dimmable LEDs and CFLs, as well as all halogen and incandescent lights.
So if you’re tired of the lights being left on or fumbling for the light switch with full hands, the Maestro Occupancy Sensor Switch makes life easier while helping you save money and go green at home. The Maestro Occupancy Sensor Switch starts at around $20 and is available at The Home Depot and homedepot.com.
