Abstract

This guide shows results from a field demonstration of sensor-controlled, bi-level corridor lighting in a multi-family apartment building. Occupants had positive feedback, and considerable energy savings were achieved, especially with shortest delay time (5 minutes). Monitoring results from 14 other apartment buildings enabled energy savings calculations comparing market rate vs. below market rate apartment buildings. As energy codes move toward increased adoption of sensor-controlled lighting, these results show how to use sensor-controlled lighting to improve energy efficiency without occupant dissatisfaction.
