No More Asking Who Left the Lights On with Lutron

“I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Lutron. I received product samples to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item as a thank-you for participating.”


Do you have a problem with certain individuals always leaving lights on in the house, and you find yourself wondering “Who left the lights on?” Perhaps it’s the same person over and over again. Or maybe everyone in your household could use some improvement when it comes to saving electricity. In my house it is usually the kids who don’t take care to turn lights off when they head out the door; or ever really. In fact, as I write I’m trying to think of a time when a child of mine took initiative and turned off a light without being told. Nope, can’t think of one!

You may find the Lutron infographic (above) fascinating. I was kind of surprised to learn that lights are left on in the kitchen, more than any other room in the house. For us it is often one of the bathrooms or a certain hall light. What if I told you that there is a product that can help with this dilemma of lights left on in an empty room, and ultimately save you money on your electric bill? With both of the following Lutron products, your usage can be saved:

Lutron Dimmer "Who Left the Lights On?"

I have had both products installed for a few days, and so far I am loving them. They both have a sensor that detects when a person enters a room and leaves the room. Someone comes into the room and the light goes on, and the light also turns off after the room has been empty for a bit. The dimmer also has the capability to be dimmed (obviously) to create ambiance in a room. I placed the Sensing Switch in my pantry because that light gets left on quite often, and it’s completely unnecessary! The dimmer is placed in my hallways because that light often comes on in the night, for the little ones who don’t like being left completely in the dark. As a Lutron Ambassador, I will be writing more on these products later, but for now I want to show you a quick installation video.
