One of the first steps to retrofitting a facility with occupancy sensors is the auditing of the building’s existing lighting system. To assist with auditing, Sensor Switch has a job auditing service and a downloadable auditing tool called Job Walk.
Sensor Switch has field service engineers which can be deployed to assist you with the process of doing building audits. Contact the Technical Service Department to request their services.

Job Audit Tool
To simplify the task of doing lighting/sensor audits of existing buildings we have designed a tool called Job Walk. An EXCEL spreadsheet consisting of several linked worksheets, Job Walk provides easy to use forms for gathering information about a potential lighting and sensor upgrade project. Besides enabling you to find the approximate number of sensors needed to adequately cover a building; Job Walk also makes cost, savings, simple payback, and ROI calculations simple.
