Status: 
Active

To provide best available current interim technical guidance concerning the use of occupant sensors for control of lighting systems within buildings. Although these devices have been in use to turn lights on and off for a number of years, many reports of improper installation and misapplication have been received. The occupant sensor application guide in enclosure (1) will assist lighting system designers in selecting the correct sensor technology and the correct sensor location to assure a successful, energy efficient installation. Please note that these same devices have also been used to control heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems; however, this application guide will not specifically address control of HVAC systems
