Building Energy management systems (BEMSs) are needed to monitor and regulate energy consumption in buildings, thus, contribute in reducing the environmental challenges facing our planet. A new energy saving method based on BEMS is proposed in this paper. The proposed method is a smart LED lighting system based on an Arduino microcontroller, a simple motion sensor, and a camera. A complete design and implementation of the smart lighting system is presented in the paper. In addition, the proposed smart system is validated in the paper under various experimental conditions. The results show that simple installation of commercially available motion sensors and cameras can contribute significantly to reduce the electricity bill and CO2 emission.
