Answer: 
The PR180 is only compatible with incandescent and rapid start magnetic fluorescent ballasts. If you are using a different type of fluorescent ballast then you would need to use the ODS10-IDW instead.

I want to install this occupancy sensor with my new LEDs light bulbs but I am not sure if this occupancy sensor is suitable for LED bulbs. I have heard that using a switch that is not compatabile with LED bulbs can drastically reduce thier estimated life span. Is this switch compatable with LEDs?

Thanks.

Rated 3.1 out of 5 by 18 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Will not work with CFL bulbs This will not work with CFL bulbs. Another point is, when the bulb fails the unit simply does not appear to work. The motion LED does not trigger. If it looks like the unit has failed, simply changing the bulb is likely the solution. The unit needs a load to work. A blown bulb or low current consuming CFL, and the motion sensor will not operate. This has worked well for 2 years now. October 20, 2012
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by pretty nice Had 2 of these for over a year now.........the only time it acted up was when the light bulbs got weak.......the load was 3x40 watts and the lights would turn onloff randomly.....tech support said the bulb filament is the problem even though they all were lit.......I went up to 3 NEW 60 watts and the problem dissappeared..........like the other poster I believe this device needs a load, but I believe good bulbs are key.........if yours cuts on randomly, get new bulbs...........if it flickers your using too low wattage(cfl, led, etc) stick with your old incandecent power wasters and your set March 4, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Motion Sensor Slider Broke - Cheap! These light switches are installed in both bathrooms in my condo. Recently, the slider button on this motion sensor light switch popped off. No biggie, I thought - I'd just glue it back on. I didn't do it right away and a day later the little plastic stick that had held the slider button on broke off as well! Now I have to replace the whole sensor switch. I really wasn't happy with this in the first place, the light never stayed on long enough for me or my guests who used the bathroom when it was set to the "motion" setting. Plus, I've never seen a wall switch button break off like this, just from normal use! I wouldn't buy this again and now I have to figure out what to replace this switch with. Such a pain. January 4, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by They had a BETTER design before this The switch works. After 3 years the slider on switch fell off. This company had another disign with a 3 position rocker switch. The rocker switch version, if you can find it, is soo much easier and has proven very durable in residential use. Why they dropped the rocker switch version is beyond me. Whenever I'm in electrical dept of a store, I always look for one.. only to cringe when I can find is this sliding switch version. Did I mention the slide is annoying to use, and falls off? If you have no other option, buy this. Afterall.. it does WORK. January 28, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nice Product - Had to use Incandesent bulb It does a great job of detecting motion. Installation wiring procedure was clear. The package says "fluorescent magnetic ballast lighting" so I hoped that meant it will work with compact fluorescent lights but it turns out that this will not work with cfl's. So I rated this product 4 stars since the package label did not exclude cfl's. In my case, I switched to an inefficient incandescent bulb. Since I have it set to turn off after only 8 seconds, that works for me in my specific situation. (Geek speak: I figured out later that this type of motion detector circuit gets its power by trickling a very, very small current through the light fixture when the light looks off. I could probably have used a dimable cfl, but I did not have one handy.) December 15, 2009
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Why sell a product that only works with obsolete bulbs? As many people here have noted, this switch doesn't work with CFLs. The writing on the box that says this is tiny, and only after installing this did I see that it wasn't working. I switched to an incandescent and that works fine. Since the light is only on briefly, the energy use is not really an issue, but eventually incandescent bulbs won't be sold. There should be a large prominent warning on the box. Or better yet Levitron and Home Depot should stop selling non CFL compatible models. September 11, 2012
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Works Great in Basement, using w/ 1 incand. + 3 CFLs Like others, I did not read the print on the side about it not working on CFL bulbs, so when I went to turn it on for the first time with 4 26W CFLs on the circuit, the bulbs kept flickering on and off. I'm not sure if there a minimum impedance or wattage, but I just changed one of the bulbs to a regular 60W incand. and it works just fine. Been good for about a year. I will say that I have gone through 3 incand. bulbs already, but they're cheap, and a small price to pay for not having my basement lights left on constantly. September 25, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great for kids that don't turn out lights I have 3 kids that do not know how to turn lights off. (No matter how much I fuss) After installing these in the kids hall and bathroom, I have been very pleased. Installation was extremely easy. Everything was provided in the box. I removed my old switch and wired the new switch as per the instructions and replaced. Now the kids don't even have to turn the light on, they are very excited when the light goes on automatically. Great product, and I don't have to keep screaming for the kids to turn the lights out. October 5, 2009
