Home Safety – Installing Lighting Timers, Occupancy Sensors, and Motion Sensors

Installing timers, motion sensors, and occupancy sensors in and around your home can improve your safety, security, and help you save money on your energy bills. At Integrity Electric, our customers’ well-being is important to us, which is why we’ve put these tips together for you.

Inside the House

Timers. It’s time to say good-bye to your old dial-style timer that turns on a single lamp at exactly the same time every day. Modern timers with programmable features can be installed directly on a light switch by an electrician, allowing you to program your lights to go off and on at different times every day. These timers are great for people who are often away from home for travel or who work odd shifts.

Occupancy Sensors. Occupancy sensors can be installed on your existing wall switch, and simply respond to motion in a room by turning lights on. The lights stay on while the room is occupied, and they turn off when there is no longer any movement.  Occupancy sensors are perfect in rooms where you might walk in with your hands full, such as the laundry room or mud room, as well as areas where lights are often left on, like a playroom or closet.

Outside the House

Motion Sensors and Timers. Make your walkway and entryway safer and more welcoming by installing motion sensors that will automatically turn on exterior lights when movement is detected. You are no longer limited to large spotlights that wake half the neighborhood when triggered. In fact, today’s sensors are quite sophisticated and adjustable, and they can be installed on nearly any light fixture. If you aren’t keen on motion sensors, timers can also be installed on light switches of exterior lights. This allows you to program them to turn on and off at specific times of the day.
