Schneider Electric has launched a new range of presence and movement detectors which it claims can cut energy use by making sure lights are only turned on when they are needed.

The Argus detectors can be used on their own or as part of a network of sensors, can be adjusted to turn lights on for any period of time between 10 seconds and 30 minutes and can set varying light levels for individual rooms. They can also be used to turn lights off when it is bright enough to go without them.

Deepak Shard, Marketing Engineer for Schneider Electric said: “With inefficient lighting accounting for around £1billion in wasted energy each year, finding ways of reducing our energy consumption is vital.”
