Occupancy Sensors

As their name suggests, occupancy sensors turn off systems when they sense that the space is not being occupied. This can add up to a substantial savings in lighting, heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems. On the BU campus these are being used at 33 Harry Agganis Way, FitRec, Agganis Arena Garage, Mugar Library, and in the garages at both 700 Commonwealth Avenue and 730-750 Commonwealth Avenue.

The image below illustrates book stacks before and after occupancy sensors were installed.
