Residential Wall Box Sensors Named Among 100 Best New Products

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (Sept. 25, 2009) - Legrand/Pass & Seymour, a leading provider of electrical wiring devices and home systems, has been recognized by Professional Builder magazine for producing one of the 100 Best New Products for 2009, an award which recognizes the most significant products introduced each year. The Residential Wall Box Sensors, vacancy- and occupancy-based lighting controls, earned this distinction.

Editors based their choices on technological advancement, significant product improvement, new product line introduction and increasing the competition of a product line.

The Residential Wall Box Sensors conserve energy and are ideal for stairways, hallways, large spaces, garages and bathrooms. They feature fixed time delays, eliminating the need for end-user adjustments. Those who desire more flexibility can benefit from user-adjustable time delay and ambient light sensing in a 3-way compatible model. All models have 180-degree, 600-square-foot coverage and an LED indicator light provides visibility in darkened rooms.

"The wall box sensors represent just one solution that helps people contribute to a greener environment through the use of energy-efficient lighting controls," said Keith Falkenberg, lighting controls product manager at Legrand/Pass & Seymour. "With the endless variety of products introduced each year, having the editors rank one of ours among the 100 best is a great honor."
