A brief description of the technology used:

Dual technology occupancy sensors are installed in most academic and administrative buildings to turn off lighting when spaces are unoccupied. Sensors are generally installed in all areas except stairwells, hallways and mechanical rooms and certain laboratories. Occupancy sensors are used in common spaces in residence halls.

Daylight harvesting strategies are used as well.
