Wireless Lighting Control Market Overview
• The use of wireless technologies to interconnect lighting
control devices has been around for several years
• The key benefit versus wired is installation savings and
• While many manufacturers offer wireless products, the
commercial wireless occupancy sensor market to date has had
only a few relevant players
• Two main product categories -- System & Standalone

Standalone Wireless Controls
• Single room indoor applications (offices, restrooms, hallways,
break rooms, storage rooms, etc.)
• Contractor or end-user is able to fully install and deploy
without factory startup or training
• Low cost, great for ROI sensitive renovation projects
• Perfect for stock & flow distribution sales

Wireless System Controls
• Multi-room networked applications with dynamic control
requirements (i.e. time-based, regrouping, status monitoring)
• Fixture level control applications (i.e. parking garage,
industrial, street or parking lot lighting)
• Typically requires factory startup
• Generally requires project design and specification

Wireless Sensor Technology Overview
• Passive Infrared (PIR) occupancy detection technology requires
low power making it relatively simple to incorporate into
devices that are self-powered (either via battery or light harvesting)
• Ultrasonic occupancy detection technology requires much
higher power when compared to PIR technology
• As a result no manufacturers currently offer a self-powered
dual technology sensor, thus limiting the applications of
wireless lighting controls relative to wired controls (e.g. they
provide inadequate coverage of areas with obstructions)

Important Technical Points
(taken from Instruction Sheet)
• When paired with CM xx WR series PIR
sensors, the Occupancy Time Delay can be
set from the switch or from the sensor
• When paired with CM PDT xx WR series Dual
Tech sensors, the Occupancy Time Delay
must be set from the sensor and only after it
is paired with the SPODMR WR switch. This
ensures that the sensor’s internal
Microphonics time delay matches the
switch’s Occupancy Time Delay.

Important Technical Points
(taken from Instruction Sheet)
• The Heartbeat Setting represents how often
the sensor will transmit status information
to the switch.
• If the Occupancy Time Delay is set to 10
minutes with a 5 minute sensor Heartbeat
Setting, the “actual” time it will take for the
sensor to turn the lights off after leaving a
space is between 10 and 15 minutes,
depending on how long after the last
heartbeat transmission the space was
