The solution is to make use of an authorizing controller, with different modes for peak/off-peak periods, at the same time providing a help button interface.

Peak Period

  • Lots of traffic during the day, remote host takes over control and decides to turn lights on or off depending on natural lighting

Off-Peak Period

  • Main lights are off, but auxiliary lights left on for safety.
  • Sensors are installed near the doorway, the light automatically turns on when there is an occupant; after a delay of 10 minutes, the lights will automatically turn off.
