Savings from Sensor Lighting

Dec 9, 2022

Sensor lighting can make your life easier, hassle-free, and secure, add a modern touch to your home, and help you in your energy efficiency goals.

Sensor lights can help you save on your bill without you having to do anything. They are responsible for turning on the light when they sense a presence and automatically turning it off when it is no longer there.


This way you avoid the risk and expense and enjoy hassle-free home automation with something as simple as motion sensors to turn lights on and off.

These may not help in high-traffic areas/ rooms but can be used in Long corridors, cabinets, staircases, terraces, closets, Guest rooms, Storage rooms, Utility closets, and Bathrooms. This is particularly true if there are multiple lights on that switch.


Lighting controls reducing light levels when more brightness is not needed controls the lighting in and around your home. Light controls also include Dimmers, Motion sensors, occupancy sensors, photosensors, and Timers.


  1. Dimmers are widely used for indoor lighting, these can be operated manually also with timers or sensors.  These are inexpensive and can help in extending the lifetime of bulbs by reducing their lighting levels. When you dim lightbulbs, it reduces their wattage and output, which helps save energy. Dimmers can be associated with LED and CFLs if the design supports


  2. Motion sensors automatically turn the lights on when they detect motion and turn them off a short while later. Mainly used for outdoor security and utility lighting, some security lights are needed only when it is dark and people are present, the combination of a motion sensor and photosensor is the best usage.


  3. Occupancy Sensors also work the same way as motion sensors when someone enters a room, and save energy by turning lights off a room.


  4. Ultrasonic sensors detect sound, while infrared sensors detect heat and motion and can be used on kitchen counters. Turns on by the motion of a person washing dishes, for instance, and automatically turns off after the person leaves the area.


  5. Photosensors can be used to prevent lights during daylight hours. It senses light conditions, making them useful for all types of outdoor lighting. These are less effective inside the home.


  6. Timers can be used to turn lights on and off at specific times, programmed digitally.


Dimmer switches and light timers have been around for decades, but new technology has improved their performance in terms of energy efficiency and reliability. Motion sensors help to avoid the unnecessary use of electricity and therefore help to lower your bill. To give you an idea of how little this is, a low-consumption bulb that is equivalent to the old 100W bulb consumes 30W. In other words, 60 times more than the sensor that consumes the least.


These new technologies make your life easier, hassle-free, and secure, add a modern touch to your home, and help you in your energy efficiency goals. In addition, using our energy-saving device helps you reduce your energy consumption by up to 5-15% and your bill amount by up to 10-20%. Enjoy seamless energy with pocket-friendly budgets.
