A daylight sensor is a photo-cell detecting device that reads available light in a space and sends a signal to the control system. In a process known as Daylight Harvesting, these sensors take advantage of naturally available light and dim or completely switch off the electric lights in a well day-lit space. Daylight sensors are typically used to save energy, provide automatic control, and comply with building codes. Daylight sensors have also been shown to provide between 20% to 60% in lighting energy savings.
No Sensors: 0%, No spaces are equipped to dim/turn off the lights when there is
Partial Sensors: 50%, Around half the building area is equipped with sensors to turn off the lights when there is sufficient daylight.
Sensors: 100%, Whole building area is equipped with daylight sensors to turn off the lights when there is sufficient daylight.
