The NEC requires motion sensors, Paul? Where do you find that, please?

It's not the NEC, it's the IECC. International Energy Conservation Code. If you want me to reference you the code sections let me know.

It has separate sections for commercial and residential work. Instead of being adopted at the municipal level its been adopted at the state level.

I'm not sure how tight the screws have gotten on the residential side, but the commercial side has gotten pretty tight in terms of energy efficiency. I'm actually seeing a fair number of complaints from owners because it often requires the use of somewhat complex lighting control systems that can get pretty costly.

In addition to that the allowable watts per SF allowed keeps getting lowered on the three year code release cycle. As well as the rules for reuse of old fixtures keep getting tightened. As far as I can tell the codes are being used as a way to force changeover from older energy wasteful fixtures to efficient LED lighting.

Ah, yes, those are the same fine people who want me to build my houses so air-tight that the HVAC systems can't function properly so they then demand that I cut a large hole in the wall to allow for proper ventilation, which doesn't really work. Not my favorite group.

Thanks for the information, George. Just one more reason I'm glad I'm no longer building houses.

I should have phrased it more carefully, "motion sensing wiring has been required round these parts for a spell"
