Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sebastian A sensor switch, part of everyday life.
Nowadays, Sensor switches are part of everyday life.
This 180Ë 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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PEANUT 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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jrb 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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tangy2 Best LED Ocupancy Detector Sensor ever used
This motion activated occupancy sensor light control was the perfect solution for our basement lights that family members have a tendency to leave on after leaving the room. After installation there was no more yelling at the kids reminding them to turn off the lights when leaving the basement. Too many times have I gone down to the basement in the morning and realized the lights had been burning all night long.The installation process was quick and easy, only requiring the use of a Philips and flat blade screw driver. Some applications may require the use of a wire stripper.If you are concerned about energy efficiency and keeping your electric bill low, this is the device you need in your home. Ideal for bathrooms, kitchens, basements and anywhere else lights needs control.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by snowbabe A Great Solution to the old "turn the lights off" problem
Great Product. If you have a light switch, say in your basement that often gets left on, or if you have kids that are great at leaving the lights on, then this is a product to solve the problem. This motion sensor has a 180 degree view which I checked and its real. It is also a push button to turn the lights on and off manually. Installation is easy. Just remove the old light switch and replace it with this one. Obviously, if your light switch isn't visible in the room (ie hidden behind something) then this doesn't work. Also, the switch requires a ground wire to work. If you have an older home, then your light switches may not have a ground wire. I had a newer outlet just below the switch and I was able to feed a ground wire from the switch down to the oultlet and hook into a ground. So make sure you have a way to get a ground to the switch. The settings are located behind the cover plate. Read the instruction manual on how to remove the plate in that you need to be careful not to damage it. They don't just pull straight off. The settings allow for time allowed before it turns off if there isn't any motion. They also allow for light level settings so if you have a room with windows, you can set the switch to not turn lights on if the room is already light. I think it is a great design and will be putting many in my home.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mikey95 Fine occupancy that only switches On when light is needed
I installed this unit in a tool room where folks often enter or exit with their hands occupied. Works as expected controlling linear LED bulbs. The time before "Off" is adjustable; 30 sec min to a max of 30 minutes. The light level required before the unit thinks additional light is required is also adjustable, the default factory setting was fine in my case. Good instructions. The only aspect of this product that could use improvement is the overall size, it was too big to fit in the crowded box in my laundry room so I had to find another use. It requires a ground connection to function properly.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Pug Works as expected, but kind of trigger-happy
The installation and function are straightforward. The operation is as expected. However, it seems to be very sensitive to the environment, so-called "trigger-happy". It appears to pick up building mechanical vibrations as well as AC power line transient noises. These either restart the time out count-down duration or turn on the lights while they should be staying in the off mode. Since this symptom is random and unpredictable, I am still watching its behavior.
