Commercial Occupancy Sensor Lighting Installation in Annapolis Junction

Commercial Occupancy Sensor Lighting Installation in Annapolis Junction tristar electric

TriStar Electric can help you install new commercial occupancy sensor lighting.

You put a lot of energy and effort into running your business or managing your commercial properties in Annapolis Junction. Still, there is no denying the truth that the landscape of the industry has changed since the pandemic. Nowadays, many businesses routinely have closer to 50 percent occupancy on any given day, even those not struggling with hiring and staffing problems. Other commercial settings have similar patterns – even for businesses where none of the employees are remote, there are times when a specific part of a building might not be in use. While it is crucial for the lighting in all aspects of the building to be operational for safety, the unoccupied parts don’t need to be fully lit when they’re not in use. Lighting up the unused portions of a building is a waste of electricity and a waste of money. TriStar Electric can help you avoid this with commercial occupancy sensor lighting. 

How Commercial Occupancy Sensor Lighting Works 

Commercial occupancy sensor lighting uses sensors, typically mounted on the walls or the ceiling, to sense occupancy based on movement. PIR technology – pyroelectric (passive) infrared sensing – allows the occupancy sensor lighting to work. The PIR sensors detect infrared heat when a person walks into the room, and they send the “turn on” signal to the lights via a transmitter. The lights go off only if the sensors don’t sense additional movement for a set period. 

This type of lighting has both interior and exterior applications. Indoors, occupancy sensor lighting is most common in hallways, stairwells, and restrooms, but it is also helpful for certain other rooms that have periods each day when they are unoccupied. Outdoors, the most common use for this type of lighting, is for motion-detecting dawn-to-dusk lighting. This is typically safety and security lighting designed only to go on when daylight has faded to a certain percentage. 

Commercial Occupancy Sensor Lighting Services For Annapolis-Area Businesses

TriStar Electric can provide all of the services related to occupancy sensor lighting, including installation, upgrading, and circuiting. We can install sensors and additional lighting fixtures where you want to control lighting based on occupancy. Since any lighting in your building has to connect to the nearest circuit with the appropriate voltage for the fixture, we can install additional circuits as needed and place them in the areas that provide your business with the most significant benefit. If your commercial space has only old fixtures and lights, we can also help you upgrade them to LED lighting and occupancy sensor lighting.
