Background

Data centers, warehouses, periodical sections and showrooms are all places that occupy large spaces, but the lights need only be used for a short time and only for certain portions and doesn't need to be on all the time. These should make use of energy saving but practical methods of control.

Busy Periods

Sections can have their lights remain on indefinitely

Digital switches can be installed at the entrance or in certain sections, with each section having its designated button, that when turned on will allow that section to have its light remain on indefinitely whilst ignoring the sensors.

The digital switch at the entrance would have one button designated as 〝All Off〞, which when pressed would immediately turn off all the lights.
