Motion sensing switches are usually a better solution.


Motion sensing allows you to have circuits turn off when they're unneeded, which is what I assume you want to do.

Retailers often program each of their light circuits to turn on or off on time schedules, but IMHO, they'd be better off turning on and off bathroom and dark hallway lights based on motion instead. That's generally what hospitals do, and I've seen large office complexes do the same. Saves a lot of money in most cases.
