Kim, Our Systems group does design/build and I have this discussion with our designers and engineers every time we look at a lab or other research facility. Even though the technology exists that can leave the lights on when someone is very still for longer periods of time (looking at hundreds of slides, for example), I still recommend against using these in the labs proper. Offices, store rooms, etc., in the buildings, yes, but not in the labs. And I am NOT paranoid. Even though someone's always watching me. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!

I'm looking at a set of laboratory drawings where the design team has inserted them, but it's making my flesh crawl a little thinking about the lights going off when someone's really still. Just wondering if I'm being too paranoid.
