Anybody used a motion sensor to turn powered speakers on/off?

(1/2) > >>

Tim Weaver:
I'm about to hang 2 K10's in a permanent install situation. This is a sunday school classroom, so used once a week but the teachers will come in and do planning, load the pro presenter, etc during the week.

The lights are on a motion sensor already. Has anyone used a similar system for powered speakers? This would be ideal in my case since the end users are not techs. They are volunteers. This would just turn the rig on when someone walks in and turn it off after, say 30 minutes or so. Would keep the hours down considerably, but would be completely transparent to the users.

What are your thoughts?

Tim Weaver:
I guess "Occupancy Sensor" is the correct nomenclature. Looking to use this Leviton unit. It can switch 1000 watts and is rated for a 1/4hp motor so I think it should be fine for a pair of K10's.

Don't the K10s have a standby mode? Where they turn on once they start getting audio.
