Tier2-4: Vending Machine Sensors

Environmental Health & Safety
Has the institution installed vending machine motion sensors for at least one vending machine?:
A brief description of the technology used:
The University's vending contract stipulates that machines must either be Energy Star qualified machines or having a VendingMiser® unit attached. VendingMiser® uses a passive infrared sensor to power down the machine when the surrounding area is vacant, monitor the room's temperature, automatically repower the cooling system at one- to three-hour intervals, independent of sales, and ensure the product stays cold. Currently 8 machines have VendingMiser® units attached.
