Save Time and Energy with Wireless Lighting Control Retrofits

To reduce energy use in existing buildings, few systems can have the same impact as lighting and lighting control retrofits.

In commercial buildings, 28 percent of the energy use is devoted to lighting, which makes lighting an obvious target for gaining energy efficiencies.
