Automatic occupancy detection can help solve a problem that’s costing homes and business around the UK up to £800 on energy bills: leaving the lights on when a particular area or room are not in use.
According to a recent news report on this issue, 10 per cent (around seven million) Britons regularly left all their lights on around the house, even when not in a room. This is actually costing the UK an estimated £14,050,000 in wasted energy per day across the country.
According to the report, leaving lights on also creates 37,440,000 kg of carbon dioxide emissions, which is the equivalent of 62 flights around the world.
If one person was to regularly leave lights on when leaving a room, they could easily be throwing away £2.30 a day, which adds up to a noticeable £16 a week.
Suddenly the cost is £64 a month, which can actually exceed more than £800 over a year.
