Energy saving has become an inevitable need of today’s society. Many technologies influence our daily life with regards to protecting the environment and saving energy. One of them is the occupancy sensing technology. Around 30-50% electricity in a building is used for the lighting or illumination and HVAC (Heating, Ventilation and Air-conditioning) systems. There is a great potential to reduce the energy consumption by mounting occupancy sensors in buildings.
An occupancy sensor is a lighting module that identifies the presence of people in a specified area and accordingly turns the lights on or off automatically. It uses infrared, ultrasonic or a combination of these technologies for these processes. These sensors help save energy and increase the efficiency with regards to the usage of lights. Recent advancements in occupancy sensors such as image processing occupancy sensor (IPOS), intelligent occupancy sensor (IOS), and micro-phonics in the manufacturing of occupancy sensors made it possible to grab more market share in various fields. The key applications of occupancy sensors are in residential, commercial, educational, healthcare, retail and hospitality buildings. The largest application of occupancy sensors is in residential and commercial buildings due to a massive growth in the construction sector in various regions across the globe. The technology has a major role to play in this sector due to the cost effective matrix, and results into a longer life cycle of products and systems, along with greater reliability. Highlighting features of occupancy sensors include high efficiency, cost, and energy saving.
The major driving factor helping the occupancy sensor market to grow includes an increasing demand for energy efficient devices, favorable government policies regarding energy saving, and development of most accurate and efficient sensors. Restraining factors for the market includes false triggering of switch by sensors, and incompatibility issues with regards to wireless network systems. A major opportunity with regards to occupancy sensors includes increasing the effectiveness by implementing IPOS.
