CLAIMS

1 . A method to enable a retail display or vending unit to switch to or from an energy saving mode wherein the method comprises listening for a radio frequency emitted by a mobile telephone and switching the unit from an energy saving mode when a radio frequency is detected and switching the unit to an energy saving mode when no radio frequency is detected.

2. A method according to Claim 1 , wherein switching from an energy saving mode results in illumination of the unit.

3. A method according to Claim 1 or Claim 2, wherein switching from an energy saving mode activates a refrigeration or heating system associated with the unit respectively to cool or warm the unit to an operational preset temperature.

4. A method according to Claim 1 , wherein switching to an energy saving mode results in reduced or low illumination of the unit.

5. A method according to Claim 1 or Claim 4, wherein switching to an energy saving mode activates a refrigeration or heating system associated with the unit respectively to cool or warm the unit to a preset temperature that is respectively warmer or cooler that an operational preset temperature.

6. A method according to any one of Claims 1 to 5, wherein the radio frequency is between about 700MHz and 1 GHz and/or between about 1 .7GHz and 2.5GHz.

7. A method according to any one of Claims 1 to 6, wherein the method further includes a threshold for detection of the radio frequency.

8. A method according to any one of Claims 1 to 7, wherein the radio frequency is detected above a threshold level of power.

9. A method according to any one of Claims 1 to 8, wherein the method further includes filtering background radio frequencies.

10. A method according to any one of Claims 1 to 9, wherein the radio frequency is detected by an antenna.

1 1 . A retail display or vending unit comprising means to detect a radio frequency emitted from a mobile telephone and means to enable automatic switching of the unit to an energy-saving mode when low or no radio frequency is detected and automatic switching the unit from an energy saving mode when a radio frequency is detected.

12. A retail display or vending unit according to Claim 1 1 , wherein the means to detect a radio frequency emitted from a mobile phone is an antenna.

13. A retail display or vending unit according to Claim 12, wherein the antenna is tuned to a frequency to detect radio frequencies in a range of from about 50MHz to about 3.0GHz.

14. A retail display or vending unit according to Claim 12 or Claim 13, wherein the antenna is tuned to a frequency of about 883MHz.

15. A retail display or vending unit according to any one of Claims 1 1 to 14, wherein the means to enable automatic switching to and from an energy saving mode is a microprocessor connected to the means to detect a radio frequency, wherein the microprocessor is programmed to change one or more preset functions within the unit according to the detection or not of a radio frequency emitted from a mobile telephone.

16. A retail display or vending unit according to Claim 15, wherein the one or more present functions is selected from the group comprising: illumination, level of illumination, temperature.

17. A retail display or vending unit according to any one of Claims 1 1 to 16, wherein the means to detect a radio frequency emitted from a mobile telephone is set to detect a radio frequency above a predetermined threshold.

18. A retail display or vending unit according to any one of Claims 17, wherein the predetermined threshold is power of the radio frequency.

19. A retail display or vending unit according to Claim 17 or Claim 18, wherein the predetermined threshold is adjustable.

20. A method to enable a retail display or vending unit to switch to or from an energy saving mode substantially as herein described.
