Slow Motion Sensors
Motion sensor lights seem like a great way to save energy. And they can be. But they can also create a lot of waste. How? Most are programmed to go off a certain amount of time after last sensing movement. Depending on how a light is programmed, that can be anywhere from 10 minutes to two hours. Even at the 10 minute level, that adds up. Think about it. If you flip the switch the light goes off as soon as you don't need it. If you outsource to the motion sensor it is staying on 10 minutes extra (or more) every time you leave your office, classroom etc. If you are coming and going throughout the day, that could be hours of wasted run-time every day. Plus, motion sensors make it easy to forget that not all lights are automatic. So seize the power and flip the switch!
