Carrying packages, laundry baskets or young children can make it difficult and often unsafe to reach to turn a light on or off. Well, we’ve got you covered. By installing sensors in laundry rooms, kitchens, garages, hallways and other areas of the home like a child’s nursery, you no longer have to worry about turning lights on or about lights remaining on once you have left the space. There are different types of sensors to select from so you can be certain to find the one that best suits your needs and lifestyle. For instance, if you have young children you might consider a Manual-On, or Vacancy Sensor, for their bedrooms. Manual-On sensors require the user to manually turn the lights on, but the sensor will automatically turn lights off when the room is unoccupied. This eliminates repeated reminders to “turn the lights off”.
For laundry rooms, bathrooms, basements, garages and hallways, Auto-On, or Occupancy Sensors, get the job done. By automatically turning lights on when a person enters the room and off when the room is vacated, Auto-On sensors add convenience to everyday living.
If your bathrooms feel a bit damp you will love our Humidity Sensor and Fan Control. This specialty sensor detects excess humidity in a room and automatically activates the ventilation fan to reduce excess condensation* which helps to lessen the appearance of mold and mildew. You can also use it in basements and laundry rooms by setting the device to Air Cycle Mode. This will automatically turn the ventilation fan on, let it run for a set period of time and repeat the cycle hourly (eg. 20 minutes ON/40 minutes OFF each hour). Just think how much more comfortable and healthy your home environment will feel with this clever device.
The icing on the cake is that all sensors help reduce energy usage by ensuring that lights are not left on unnecessarily. This leads to lower electric bills and longer bulb life.
*The Leviton Humidity Sensor and Fan Control will not independently eliminate condensation. It must be used with a properly sized and rated ventilation fan in an enclosed space.
