Occupancy detection and daylight response to control lighting at the Royal Hospital School in Suffolk is expected to see a return on its investment within a year by achieving energy savings of up to 80%. The Luxomat system installed by building-automation specialist B.E.G. uses a motion detector designed specifically for ceiling mounting and has an optical system covering 360°.

This independent boarding school has around 700 pupils aged 11 to 18. Following an extensive site survey by B.E.G., some 50 Luxomat 2-channel occupancy sensors were installed. These sensors are high resolution devices, making them suitable for classrooms where pupils are sitting down.

More sensors are being installed in other areas of the school, including the pupils’ dormitories.
