Leviton Occupancy Sensor Fluorescent Ceiling Lamp

Leviton  Hands-Free, Energy Efficient Fluorescent Ceiling Lampholder

I love new, cool innovations.  While at the International Builders Show this year in Orlando I visited the Leviton booth and was amazed at all of the new, cost / energy saving devices they now have.   Here was one of my favorites:

Leviton  Manufacturing, a leading global manufacturer of electrical wiring devices, has expanded its line with the energy efficient Leviton Occupancy Sensor Fluorescent Ceiling Lamp.

The Occupancy Sensor features an occupancy sensor that automatically turns lights ON/OFF in response to movement in the room.   The Occupancy Sensor does not require a wall switch, a green LED indicator light blinks when motion is detected. Positioned for maximum coverage, four knockout holes on the box, with a self contained sensor, provide a 284-degree field of view.

The device automatically turns OFF after three minutes of inactivity and features a unique bulb design, which prohibits homeowners from using bulbs that are not energy efficient. Designed to reduce the risk of fire in closets and closed spaces, the Fluorescent Ceiling Lamp holder can also be used in open, indoor spaces.

The one-of-a-kind lamp holder, which is backed by a limited two-year warranty, is ideal for use in closets, workrooms, basements, storage areas, utility rooms and attics. The hands-free design is qualified by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s ENERGY STAR program and not only meets, but exceeds NFPA 70, NEC Section 410.16 requirements. With an average lamp life of 10,000 hours, the fluorescent ceiling lamp holder also meets the Canadian Electric Code Requirements for use in closets with a lamp guard.

Pigtail leads and knockout holes for multiple box configurations guarantee easy installation. Backed by a Limited Two-Year Warranty, included with the Fluorescent Ceiling Lamp holder is a 13W lamp and lamp guard. Additional bulbs are available for purchase through Leviton.Leviton occupancy sensor

The new energy efficient Fluorescent Ceiling Lamp holder is part of Leviton’s commitment to comply with agency standards and to provide customers with the broadest range of code-compliant devices for every application need. Occupancy Sensor Fluorescent Ceiling Lamp Holders will be available through Leviton’s network of electrical distribution locations beginning in August.

This unit sells online for $ 49.99.
