I have a problem turning off the lights at times. This is something I know, but in the hustle of the day, I just forget. My kids tend to also not turn off switches. The result is generally my husband going insane, running around the house grumbling and turning off switches like it’s his job. Something about wasting energy and the lights not coming magically for free. I don’t know. All I know is I try.
Once I heard about the Lutron Maestro Occupancy/Vacancy Sensor I just had to give it a shot…for Bill’s sake at the very least! LOL. The Lutron Maestro provides an easy-to-operate tap switch that turns lights on/off to your favorite light level. You can also use the rocker dimmer to adjust lights manually. The delayed fade-to-off feature gives you 10-60 seconds to leave the room. You can even combine with Maestro companion dimmers to control a single light from up to 10 locations. It’s pretty versatile…I like my options.
The Maestro occupancy/vacancy sensors automatically turn lights on when you enter a space and off when you leave, making them a convenient way to save energy in a home or commercial space. They’re ideal for rooms where lights are accidentally left on, such as bathrooms, garages or kid’s rooms, or rooms that you often enter with your hands full, such as a laundry room, mud room, or pantry. It’s pretty amazing if you really think about it. It even works with dimmable CFL and LED bulbs (a lot of dimmers do not), which we have, as well as incandescent and halogen bulbs. Where have you been all my life?!?!
