Occupancy settings

Motion is detected with Amatis sensors. The Amatis App has two modes for occupancy - Normal Hours and After Hours - both of which are configurable in the Location Settings drawer. Within each mode, you can set a grace period. 

 

Normal Hours Occupancy

1. Normal Hours Occupancy is enabled as a default with each device.

2. Adjust Vacancy Timeout to choose how long the lights stay on once motion is detected.

Default settings are configured to:

  • Vacancy Timeout: 15 minutes (lights transition to Vacant Light-Level after 15 minutes after the last person leaves).

  • Occupied Light-Level: Lights will be on at 100% when the space is occupied.

  • Vacant Light-Level: Lights will be dimmed to 0% when there is no one in the space.

3. Click the bottom-right checkbox to save these settings.

Keep in Mind:

 

After Hours Occupancy

Enable a single space to have two different modes. Normal hours occupancy is likely the preference during normal work hours, and after hours occupancy is a way to save even more energy because you don’t expect people to be congregating in a space but could expect occasional, short occupancy.

1. Enable the slider for After Hours Occupancy.

2. Adjust Vacancy Timeout to choose how long the lights stay on once motion is detected.

Default settings are configured to:

  • Vacancy Timeout: Lights transition to the Vacant Light-Level after 5 minutes after the last person leaves.
    • We choose a shorter default timeout because we expect occupants to be passing through the space, rather than congregating.
  • Occupied Light-Level: Lights will be on at 70% when the space is occupied.
  • Vacant Light-Level: Lights will be dimmed to 0% when there is no one in the space.

3. Click the bottom-right checkbox to save these settings.

Keep in Mind:

  • If you want to enable after hours occupancy, you must also enable Daytime Nighttime. This will create the scenes "Start Normal Hours" and "Start After Hours" to trigger the device between the two modes.
  • Also, you must create 2 schedules to tell the devices what time you want to start normal hours and what time you want to start after hours.

Grace Period 

Enable this intermediate step between occupied light level and vacant light level during normal hours or after hours. For example, if you set a 45 minute occupancy timeout, with a 30 minute grace period, this feature will dim the lights down to the grace period light level after no occupancy detection for 15 minutes. After an additional 30 minutes of no occupancy detected, the lights would dim down to the vacant light level.

1. Enable the slider for Normal Hours Grace Period and/or After Hours Grace Period.

2. Adjust Grace Period to choose how long the lights stay on.

Default settings are configured to:

  • Grace Period: Lights transition to the intermediate stage between Occupied and Vacant Light-Level after 1 minute after the last person leaves.
  • Light-Level: Lights will be on at 10%.

3. Click the bottom-right checkbox to save these settings.
