My husband loves leaving lights on. The problem is: I usually discover it a minimum of three hours later. Instead of hoping he’ll remember next time, I’m thinking about having him install one of Watt Stopper/Legrand’s new vacancy and occupancy sensors.
The sensors are designed to turn off lights left on in empty rooms, which conserves energy and saves us some money.
Just install a sensor anywhere you usually have a light switch. With vacancy sensors, users press the button to turn lights on; with occupancy sensors lights turn on automatically when someone enters the room.
Now if Watt Stopper could only design one that would close the fridge door…
- Replaces standard wall switches
- Vacancy sensors turn on with a button-press
- Occupancy sensors turn on automatically
- Includes nightlight feature
