I'm not sure. Must be radar, since it detects movement. The box said that the sensor needs an unobstructed "view" though, so being covered by something opaque may not work at all.

Answer: 
I'm not positive, but...
At this price point, and since the manual states that "The device responds to temperature changes" I have to assume it is a IR sensor.
BUT... This silly thing is SUPER SENSITIVE. I covered it with masking tape and the darn thing kept turning the lights on. I had to cover it with a folded paper towel to stop it from turning the light on (before I removed it).

Answer: 
As far as I can tell it uses PIR tech. That's Passive Infra Red sensing so while it "may" work thru clear plastic or glass it won't work thru paper and such. I am using a piece of black electrical tape over a portion of the sensor to restrict the active area. I don't know of any radar or sonic type units except for the Clapper.

To answer the question: These do not plug in.

Answer: 
No, it does not plug into an outlet. It replaces the switch in a standard single switch circuit and must be installed in the existing mounting box. Pretty easy job but be sure to turn the circuit off at the fuse/breaker box before working on it. And like I said in my review be sure to connect the ground wire ( usually green or bare copper) in addition to the black and white wires.

Answer: 
Yes, you need to connect the ground (bare) wire to this unit. The black screw is your hot lead which connects to the incoming power, the red screw is your load (light) - this one connects to your other lead going to the light. You do not touch the common (white wire) on light switches at all, you only break the 120 volts side.

Answer: 
Absolutely. I think the logic circuit must use the ground wire for proper operation. If not connected the unit will not function right; either always on or never on. If you don't have a ground wire in the mounting box but if it is metal connected to conduit I think you can safely ground to the box but should really have a separate ground wire. Pay close attention to the instructions.

Are you referring to the green indicator on the front of the occupancy detector or the light that the occupancy detector is controlling?
The green indicator on the front of the occupancy detector will blink every 2 seconds anytime motion is detected and if the load output of the occupancy sensor is ON. It is very difficult to stand directly in front of the occupancy detector and to stay still enough to not trip it because it is very sensitive to any nearby movement.
The manufacturer offers several models depending on the type and size of the load being controlled.
If a light connected to the occupancy detector always glows even after no motion is detected it is possible that the wrong model occupancy detector is being used for the type of light load connected to the occupancy detector.
If the light connected to the occupancy detector stays at the same brightness constantly even when there is no green indicator blinking on the front of the occupancy detector then the occupancy detector may be defective.
The occupancy detectors also support a manual on/off through pressing the large button on the bottom front of the unit below the top sensor. If the light connected to the occupancy detector does not switch off and on manually then the occupancy detector may not be wired correctly (might be missing a required ground connection) or the device is defective.
The IPS02 has a relay to control the load and will have no leakage current to the load when the load is switched off through the relay in the device.

Kudos for being super GREEN and using bulbs with the lowest current draw, but unless you can live with the low glow, which is using next to nothing in electricity you will need to try some other type/brand of bulb to remedy this issue... or if if the fixture uses multiple bulbs, you can change out just one that has more resistance and eliminate the glow.

I'm assuming based on your question that you're using an LED light bulb.
LEDs, because they require such little current to operate, can sometimes ignite with residual voltage even after the circuit has been opened. I had this problem with my truck interior door light when I replaced it with an LED. You might try using a higher wattage LED bulb. To my knowledge, there isn't a way to truly fix that because with alternating current especially, there's always going to be a little residual voltage depending on how the wiring socket was done. The only real way to fix it that I'm aware of would be to rewire the circuit going to the socket so that the hot wire is going through the switch and not after the fact. I installed an LED Spotlight on my truck and had to rewire it as such because I had the same problem. I couldn't fix my interior dome light, however. Read Less

Rated 3.7 out of 5 by 121 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Does the Job This motion detector light switch works well. Very glad that the default settings were OK because making adjustments would have been a problem. The adjustment (sensitivity and time-on) are very difficult to find and lack of written instructions were a problem. July 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A GOOD PRODUCT FOR LAUNDRY ROOMS, BASEMENTS, ETC. This motion detection light switch is a great product to have in a laundry room, etc. when your hands are full and flipping on a light switch is a hassle or difficult. It also works great in areas of the home, garage, shed, etc. where you ( or a child ) have a habit of leaving the light/lights on. This products ability to work with an array of lighting from a regular light bulb to energy saving CFLs and LEDs and the ability to adjust both the time delay for a light to turn off and the darkness of an area before the detector turns on a light makes this LEVITON 180 degree occupancy detector state of the art. I put this detector switch in my basement because I kept forgetting to turn the lights off. February 3, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great when your hands are full I installed this in my garage and I love it. For some reason, when they built my house they put the switch a few feet away from the door. Most of the time I could hit it from memory, but sometimes not, and forget it when my hands are full. It comes on faithfully as soon as I step out the door, and goes off shortly after I leave. When there is natural light, it does not activate saving you on electricity. Sensitivity for both is adjustable. While sometimes I don't need the light and may find it wasteful, the times I have left the light one all night or all weekend remind me it not as must as I would waste otherwise. June 22, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A sensor switch, part of everyday life. Nowadays, Sensor switches are part of everyday life. This 180˚ Pir-Incandescent-CFL-LED Occupancy Detector is part of that family. It is easy to install, setup and use for a Do it yourselfer. The sensitivity can be set for daylight/ambient light. The time for the light to stay ON after a motion is detected can be set for 30 seconds, 5 minutes, 15 minutes or 30 minutes, which ever you prefer. As long as the sensor can detect your body heat, it will not go OFF, and it will go OFF only after you vacate, and after the set time runs out. This is a nice and easy to use sensor switch. February 22, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works great with LED bulbs! Over the past year with Home Depots assistance, we have been converting our house over to high efficiency LED lighting. The only drawback has been that conventional motion sensing light switches, that save energy by only providing light when there is an actual person in the room, don’t work well with CFL and LED lighting. This switch is the exception! I installed it in our bar area, and it performs flawlessly with the LED fixtures and bulbs there. Installation was a breeze, just be certain to hook the neutral up correctly in order for the switch to work correctly. January 6, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by waist of time Took the first back because it wouldn't work at all. The second one went on and off at will, had to go turn it off in middle of night no one around. July 19, 2016

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Auto Switch I really like this product. You can change the sensitivity and the duration of it coming on with small dails under the cover. It made me a little nervous to take off the cover to change these with how delicate it seems to be. You also need to make sure that you have a ground wire, as the switch will not work without a ground. July 5, 2016
