Does the institution use motion, infrared, and/or light sensors to reduce energy use for lighting in at least one building?:

A brief description of the technology used:

We use dual-technology sensors which utilize both infrared and ultrasonic detection technologies. Primarily, we install vacancy sensors which switch lights off when a space is unoccupied. There are some locations on campus that also utilize photocells that reduce or switch off lighting in a space when sufficient daylighting is available.

The website URL where information about the institution's use of the technology is available:

This information is not available on a website, but was procurred from the the University's Energy Manager, Angel Moreno
