To protect the health of our staff and our customers, Efficiency Vermont offices are closed to the public. In the meantime, our customer support team is available to help you remotely. Contact us at (888) 921-5990 or email@example.com.
We have cautiously begun scheduling project related site visits when required. You can find more information on our safety protocols here.
Lighting Controls & Sensors
Save money while creating a comfortable and productive space with automated daylight and occupancy sensors.
Controls save money by helping your business or home use light only where and when necessary. They create cooler, more productive, and welcoming spaces for residents, customers, and employees. Daylight sensors measure available natural light and adjust indoor lighting to its optimal level. Occupancy sensors dim or shut off lights as needed when there’s no one in a room, warehouse, or even an outdoor area.
Where to Mount Sensors
Light switches with embedded sensors can replace old light switches in small rooms and offices. Fixture-mounted sensors are recommended for medium-sized spaces (such as classrooms), high-ceilinged areas, and exterior areas. Remote-mounted wall and ceiling sensors are connected to a master control and work best in large, open spaces. And some sensors are wireless, which can help avoid the cost of rewiring existing lights. Contact us for advice on the right solution for you.
- Guarantee savings by using lights only when needed
- Automate energy usage with the right sensor for your business or home
- Choose a sensor mounting location based on your space’s size and use
There’s a sensor for every business and home application. Passive infrared (PIR) technology sensors are suited to rooms with no partitions, though inadvertent shut-offs can occur if motions are subtle (like typing). Ultrasonic and acoustic technologies work better when there’s no direct line of sight between sensor and occupant. Pairing two technologies in one sensor can work well—nearly eliminating false shut-offs.
- Lower energy bills with occupancy and daylight sensors
- Choose the right sensor for your space: PIR, ultrasonic, acoustic, or dual
- Avoid false shut-offs with dual technology sensors
Advanced Commercial Controls
Save 50-75% on energy costs with advanced controls customized for your business. Advanced lighting controls are networked together and blend multiple strategies such as time-scheduling technology, occupancy and daylight sensors, off-site remote management, personal override, and web-based tracking. Integrated lighting controls refer to LED fixtures that come pre-equipped with two built-in sensors (one daylight, one occupancy). Contact us for an assessment.

- Adjust your lighting remotely from a web-based interface
