Product Overview

Lower electrical costs and add convenience to everyday living by replacing standard switches with vacancy sensors. Leviton's IPV15 Vacancy Sensor Switch is designed specifically to handle higher power lighting and motor loads. It requires the user to manually turn the lights ON when you enter a room but the lights will automatically turn OFF when you leave. This sensor is convenient in high traffic areas such as hallways, children’s rooms, living rooms, dining rooms and bathrooms where people as well as pets pass through often to ensure that the lights are not left ON unnecessarily for hours at a time. Leviton vacancy sensors are a simple, cost effective way to save energy in your home.

Answer: 
No, this is not wet or damp location listed. A covered porch may not necessarily be a damp location though, depending on your location/ porch design and the amount of overhang of the covered porch.

Answer: 
According to the spec sheet, it can be used in temperatures ranging 0'c to 40'c and with relative humidity ranging 20% to 90% which is a pretty broad range. If you are on the coast, might be cutting it close in mid summer when humidity can dip into the 90%+ range. I don't see anything else in the spec sheet that says it can't be used outdoors although I would think a covered patio would be acceptable. Read More

I'm not sure how the finish of the switch would hold up outside over time though, it has a nice glossy white finish that may end up dulling over time but I could be mistaken. Read Less

Answer: 
The Leviton website does not say that it is, so I would assume that it is NOT. But in general, I would advise putting switches in non-damp locations, even if the fixtures themselves are wet-listed and installed in damp or wet locations.

This model will control fluorescent, LED and/or incandescent lights and/or a motor load of up to a total of 15 amps. This is a manual-on and occupancy-off switch: You must push on when entering the room and it will go off when there is no motion in the room for a time period of your choosing.

Answer: 
Per Leviton, it can handle 600W of LED/CFL, 1800W Incandescent/Halogen or a 1/2 HP motor. I suggest you switch your fluorescent lights to LED bulbs (consume less electricity) and assuming your bathroom fan is not more powerful than 1/2 HP you should be ok. You can even contact Leviton to get confirmation.

15 Amp 180 Degree Incandescent-CFL-LED Vacancy Motion Detector, White is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 27.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from It was easy to install as long as you know how to wire an electrical outlet. It worked initially... It was easy to install as long as you know how to wire an electrical outlet. It worked initially, however, when the sensor had not been activated for awhile, it would not respond to any close movement. Turning the sensor on manually would fix it temporarily, but it would become unresponsive again as described before. This was very aggravating to say the least. I don't know what quality controls are in effect at the factory, but to have picked out a defective unit among the dozens at the store is very discouraging. Also, the relay was loud when activated, but if it had worked, I would have put up with that. I uninstalled it and returned it for a refund.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Save some electricity! This switch will not turn on automatically whenever someone enters the room, but it will turn it off automatically. This is especially good when you have someone in your family that constantly forgets to turn off lights when they leave the room. It is versatile in that it can be wired either as a single pole switch or as a 3-way switch. It can control LED/CFL , Incandescent Bulbs, Ballasts, or ceiling fans.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for switches that people forget to shuts off! This Leviton motion sensing light switch is perfect for that light switch that you (or others) may forget to shut off - saving electricity. You manually turn the light off, but if motion is not detected at the configurable setting of 30 seconds, 5 minutes, 15 minutes or 30 minutes. Leviton's product details indicate it uses passive infrared technology which is a fancy name for body heat (instead of something non-heat generating like curtains blowing in the wind, etc) to determine when to trigger the off setting. BE sure to have the neutral wire in your junction box as this is needed to complete the overall easy install. Plus it can handle larger electrical loads: 600W for LED/CFL, 1800W for Incandescent/Halogen or a 1/2 HP motor.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Manual on - Sensor Off Just a warning - this is a manual on and an auto shut off switch. I thought it was an auto on and off switch. This caused confusion when installing and testing. It does say it on the packaging which i didn't see so some is my fault.This online description doesn't say it. It was an easy standard install. If your wiring does not look like the instructions i would stop and call or hire an electrician. My install needed a line (hot) wire - a ground wire - a load wire - and a neutral wire. So pretty basic. You can also use this on a 3 way switch. Comes with 3 face plates (as pictured). I think they are white - ivory - and almond. Great for place where you often to forget to shut off lights. I id this in my attic cause my wife forgets to shut it off all the time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great motion detection switch for LED and CFL lights -- perfect for closets This Leviton motion sensing switch work with sensitive LED lights, compact flourescent bulbs and old incandescent bulbs. When I installed an LED light in my wife's clothes closet, I installed another brand -- which malfunctioned. This is not unusual with more sensitive LED light fixtures, which have electronic components. So I replaced it with this Leviton switch which works fine. Motion sensing switches are perfect for closets: no need to search for an manual switch -- the light comes on automatically when you open the door, and shuts off when the door closes. This is also helpful if you are remodeling an older home and do not want to snake more wire to add a manual switch on the wall. Just install the motion sensing switch near the light on the ceiling -- where the wire will already be located. Mark

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid motion sensor This is a good motion sensor control from Leviton. I replaced a single pole, standard Decora type switch in the half bath room. Install was straight forward and took about 10 minutes. The control has adjustments for sensitivity and and shut-off time which are accessed under the face plate. Note this control is manual on and auto off. So you'll have to hit the switch when you enter the room but it will turn off automatically when no motion is detected. I have it connected to a light over the sink that has CFL bulbs installed and don't have any issues. It works great and now no more yelling at the kids to turn off the light.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does exactly what it says it will do The 15 Amp 180-Degree Incandescent CFL-LED Vacancy Motion Detector White is exactly what it says it is. I received the switch packaged in a padded envelope with printed instructions. I am not sure if this is standard when purchasing the vacancy detector switch or if the documentation was included being that I was reviewing the item. I did however confirm that documentation for installation is available on the manufacturers website. The switch requires a ground and install was a simple swap for me. There are also sensitivity settings that are easily accessible and simple to tune. The switch can detect motion for the full 180 degrees as advertised and is functioning without issue where it is installed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent energy saving switch Leviton's IPV15 vacancy sensor switch is a great addition to every homes electrical system. This switch can handle up to 15 amps for demanding lighting circuits and high current motors. It’s easy to install. Just swap-out your existing light switch with Leviton's vacancy sensing switch. Installation only takes a few minutes, and the switch will save energy while paying for itself over time. Just flip on the switch as normal, but you can forget about the need to turn it off, because this switch will automatically turn itself off! The built-in motion sensor is beneficial in areas where family members rush in and out forgetting the lights; wasting electricity unnecessarily. I recommend this switch to anyone looking to save money on their electric bill.
