A brief description of the technology used:

The Morken Center for Learning and Technology, the Loren and MaryAnn Anderson University Center, the Martin J. Neeb Center, Karen Hille Phillips Center for the Performing Arts, and Mary Baker Russell Music Center are controlled through a lighting control system that involves both motion and light sensors.

Many of the buildings have lights with motion sensors. In the University Center, even the bathrooms are motion sensor controlled. In Morken Center for Learning and Technology, the lights are on sensors, and the fixtures are designed to provide 25 percent more light to the room.
