Light Control sensors- An Introduction Leave a comment

Light sensors in a lighting control system monitor the amount of ambient light and adjust the electric lights accordingly. This is referred to as daylight harvesting, and it aids in energy efficiency by ensuring that no electric light is wasted.
Lighting control systems, in general, employ three forms of detection:
  1. When someone enters room, it is said to be occupied.
  2. When room is vacant, it is said to be vacant.
  3. Ambient light—the quantity of natural light that enters the room.
The sensors monitor the environment and adjust the illumination as needed, whether it’s dimming, brightening, or turning on or off.

The better systems also allow you to program lighting timers and schedules, as well as override any automatic operations.



  • Allow significant savings on energy bills
  • Cheap and simple to install, particularly wireless systems
  • User-friendly
  • Convenient—lights switched on automatically when needed
  • Long battery life due to their low power consumption
  • Help with health and safety requirements (e.g. lighting in corridors)
