Infrared sensor does not work for me. I need a light sensor which still works when it is covered by paper, plastic, etc...

Answer: 
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.
To answer what I think you were asking: These do replace a standard switch. One oddity is that these only connect to Hot and Ground. You will have to connect source Neutral (white) to fixture Neutral (using a wire nut). In other words, this switch "switches" Hot.

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.

Rated 3.7 out of 5 by 130 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Motion sensor wall switch We were looking for a motion sensory to replace one that was 20 years old. It still worked but was discolored with age. This new one looks great and works well. We are using it to run lights and fan. We are using LED lights and it is doing a good job, no flashing or any other type of problems. Can't go wrong with this product. October 11, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy install Easy to install even with 12 gauge wire. Different time settings is useful. I have been installing these throughout the facility. Rebate available with most electric companies....pays for it. August 9, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Let there be light! This was for my laundry closet. The switch is on one side of the closet. If I am only in the other side of the closet turning the light on and off was not convenient . We installed this and no matter where I am in the closet it turns on!!! I have it set to turn off in 5 minutes but if I am in longer it stays on for me and does not turn off every five minutes when it shouldn't. This was exactly what I wanted! October 25, 2016
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 2.0 out of 5.0 by Switch works fair in a small environment, ie closets. Open spaces not so well. Override switch did not work at all. October 25, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Sensor worked poorly Maybe it was the small room but this product did not work for me. I bought a second one thinking it was defective but the sensor did not work. I know this is a good company that makes quality products, unfortunately this unit did not work well. October 11, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Leviton IPS02 Auto On Motion Sensor This is very simple to install, took me less then 10 min, start to finish including cleanup. I installed this in the stairway leading to my basement and it works great. Open the door, light comes on so when my hands are full I don't need to fumble for the light switch. This also eliminates my wife telling me later, "you forgot to turn off the basement light.", There is a daylight sensor so it does not come on during the day. There are even some blinds that are adjustable to control where the device "Sees" the motion. Only wish it had a setting to turn off sooner than the 10 min. I think I will leave mine in the "setup" mode so it turns off after a10 seconds. August 18, 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
