Lutron Electronics has announced a program to help electrical contractors and ESCOs identify new areas of lighting control opportunity in commercial buildings. Onset HOBO occupancy and light data loggers, which provide time-stamped occupancy and on/off light data, can be used free of charge on qualifying projects. This, in turn, will provide project managers and contractors with a competitive advantage, and make the case for adding lighting controls to a project based on actual occupancy data.
The battery-powered, matchbox-sized devices can be configured and installed in minutes and easily transmit data to a computer via a USB connection.
“Identifying areas of lighting control opportunity beyond code requirements will not only save energy, but further reduce energy bills,” said Brian Donlon, Sales Vice-President, North America, at Lutron. “We’re confident the results of this program will surprise and delight building owners and end-users at all levels.”
To register for the program, simply establish a Lutron customer account and agree to share basic project data with Lutron, who will then deliver the units needed for data collection. Lutron and Onset recommends two to four weeks for an accurate usage sampling. Contact your local Lutron sales representative to register for the program, or for more information.
