That would depend on the sensor used. The clients I work with now are just changing out the fixtures instead of doing bulb swaps. The fixture cost has come down so much in the past 5 years it makes more sense just to put in a new fixture.

Some LED fixtures have options for integrated motion / occupancy sensors.


For shoplights the fixture replacement has always been cheaper. I bought one at Costco recently that I was very excited about that had a built in motion detector, but the damn thing just sat there going on and off by itself with nothing near it and the sensor at it's lowest setting.

anyone, ever convert a fluorsecent fixture into one that can take led bulbs?[quote]


Done all the time


Ballast Bypass (most energy efficient method) re-wire the light that the new LED tube runs on line voltage.

Ballast compatible: Just pop it in.

Memorial Sloan has been doing the ballast bypass method. They have been getting their bulbs from Tri State LED, which based on their performance tests, proved to be the most reliable.

Hi all,

Does anyone know how I can go about disposing of old fluorescent tubes (I have about a dozen of them).

Will normal trash pick them up?

Thanks in advance!

One option is bring them to Home Depot, I've brought bags of them there.
