The Maestro line of in-wall dual technology sensor switches now offers both neutral and no-neutral required models. Lutron uses XCT technology to enhance both the passive infrared and ultrasonic sensing for maximized sensitivity to detect even very fine motions, such as typing.
Lutron’s NEW facility management tool empowers you to manage your building from anywhere. Easily monitor, control and optimize a Lutron control system from any tablet, PC or smartphone. Each feature is designed around what is most important to you – how well your building is working.
The Specification Guides provide detailed product information to help you specify the right Lutron solution for your project.
SCE’s Private School Program provides private institutions with services to implement cost-effective, energy-efficient measures to permanently reduce their electricity usage.
In addition to a fixture retrofit, two control opportunities were identified:
Working with FCI, Mr. Thomas proposed a lighting control solution that included Lutron wireless occupancy sensors, switches and relay modules in each area to ensure lights are turned off when the space is empty. In many rooms, Lutron wireless wall switches provide three-way control with no additional wiring required.
Encouraged by the results, Pepperdine is already working on a proposal for the school’s lower campus. Project stakeholders estimate that the occupancy controls throughout the retrofit are reducing lighting energy usage by 20-30%. In addition, by integrating the VAV boxes wirelessly to the occupancy sensors the solution is reducing overall HVAC energy usage in the classrooms by an additional 14%.
Les Thomas knows the systems are maintaining a comfortable work/study environment, “Generally, if I’m not getting any negative feedback, I know everyone is happy. If the lights were turning off when people were in the space, or students were
cold in the classrooms, I would definitely know. Any time we can strike the perfect balance, we know we’ve made the best choice.”
