Lutron Sensors Save Power by Turning Off the Lights
Lutron Electronics will be featuring three products in Booth C2050 at next month’s International Builders’ Show in Las Vegas — its new Radio Powr Savr, which saves energy by turning off the lights when a room is unoccupied, its eco-timer and the addition of a vacancy sensor for its popular Maestro dimmer:
- The Radio Powr Savr is a wireless device that can be installed in minutes. The sensor can be placed on the ceiling and a standard light switch can be replaced with a compatible Lutron dimmer or switch, with no wiring to the sensor required.
Using a compatible Lutron dimmer with the sensor allows occupants to automatically turn lights on to a dimmed level rather than to full-on, saving even more energy.
The sensor is especially effective in retrofit applications where traditional wired sensors are difficult to install.
Eco-timer enables consumers to save energy by automatically turning a fan or light off after a set period of time. Users can set a countdown time as short as one minute but no longer than 30 minutes. The timer cannot be overridden to remain on, guaranteeing that the fan or lights will always turn off. LED lights on the side of the eco-timer move every five minutes as the time winds down, indicating to the user approximately how much time is remaining.
- Maestro Dimmer with Occupancy/Vacancy Sensor adds an unobtrusive sensor to the sleek design of the Maestro dimmer. Equipped with Lutron’s exclusive XCT technology for detecting fine motion, the sensor ensures that the lights stay on when the room is occupied and are off when the room is not being used, greatly reducing unnecessary energy consumption. Replacing a standard switch with a Maestro dimmer with occupancy sensor can save up to 50% in energy costs, according to the manufacturer.
