As the name would suggest, Plug & Play is a brilliantly simple and cost effective single room lighting control system for schools and offices, eliminating the need for light control modules. The system is suitable for use in classrooms, toilets, offices and transitional spaces. Plug & Play removes the need for specialist commissioning services as all system settings are manually adjustable by the installer.


  • Absence detection via room sensor
  • Room override to ‘off’ via room switch
  • Daylight dimming via luminaire photocell
  • Whiteboard luminaire(s) override via whiteboard switch interface
  • Local emergency test key-switch and room isolation via emergency test switch interface

The installer simply provides a mains supply to the classroom supply plug and then connects the room sensor, whiteboard switch interface and emergency test switch interface to the switch point(s).


We provide multiple application Design Guide drawings for our comprehensive range of classroom luminaires when using Plug’n Play. The specifier or Designer simply chooses the appropriate design guide for the classroom to be controlled and specifies. The installer simply refers to the Plug & Play Design Guide in the manual for the correct installation scheme.

To commission the sensor for absence detection, simply switch the room retractive switch five times within 30 seconds of power up. Room power up can easily be achieved by toggling the emergency test key switch or by unplugging and re-plugging the classroom supply plug.

For all other environments where presence detection is the norm, the Plug & Play system is even simpler. In corridors, the sensor requires just an emergency test switch interface for ease of wiring and local isolation to enable safe lamp replacement.

For long corridors or large rooms multiple ‘presence’ sensors can be wired in parallel so that any sensor detection switches the lighting for the whole area under control. In this application, the room switch or switches should be used for override control only and not absence detection.
