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.

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 3.8 out of 5 by 111 reviewers.
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 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 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 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. December 13, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. 4-Piece E January 23, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. April 13, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by 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. May 3, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Did not work I installed the switch and had to buy a new one because the first one didn't work. May 10, 2016
