Using less energy not only save you some money but also saves the environment. You should therefore save energy because this will benefit a lot of people. There are efficient lighting controls that you could use to reduce your monthly energy expense. These efficient lighting controls include the following:
- Occupancy and Vacancy sensors
These lighting controls switch on/off the lights depending on which rooms have been occupied by the family members. Occupancy sensors detect the presence of a family member in a room and then automatically switches on the lights. Even if you enter a room which has an occupancy sensor lighting control with your hands full, you are assured of an efficient room illumination. Vacancy sensors work by switching off the light as soon as the last person exits a room.
When using these lighting controls, your lights will be switched on only when they’re needed. You will therefore use less electrical energy, which will save you some money in the long run. Also, you will be saving the environment from global warming.
- Lighting Dimmers
Dimers work by reducing your lights’ brightness. When your light bulbs glow dimly, they use less electrical energy. This saves you money in great ways. Some dimmers adjust your lightings to match your preferred lighting requirements. This not only provides convenience but also helps you to save some money over time.

Timers are a good lighting controls to help you save that precious and hard to find money. They only switch on/off the lights as required thus cutting down the lighting time.
