Rated 5 out of 5Â by SoCalHomeGuy Excellent, Fast, Accurate sensor
Replaced an older and cheaper sensor that as not compatible with CFL bulbs and would not work well during the daytime. This unit has an actual relay in it so it's compatible with everything. The sensor is instant. We have it mounted in our laundry room and the light turns on just as I enter the room and it works equally well no matter what the ambient light level. Spend the extra few dollars and get this product that really works.

Bought 2 of these to put in bathrooms at my small church where folks have a habit of not turning off the lights when leaving. These units use a relay, as opposed to SCRs or Triacs, so they work great with CFL and other florescent lights, and they do not require a neutral line for hookup, so that makes installation really easy. The sensors are very sensitive and turn on as soon as the door is opened.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Roger Exceeded my expectations. Works w/CFL's & fluorescent lights.Easy to install & adjust.
100% excellent. Works as advertised. The sensor is adjustable to turn off the lights from 30 seconds of no motion to 30 minutes. The range is also adjustable.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by FRE0 Has limitation which are serious in some situations.
The occupancy sensor may work very well for sensing occupancy to control room occupancy. However, it has serious limitations for controlling hallway or stairway lighting.
The sensor has blinders which can be set to narrow the viewing range slightly. But when used to control hallway or stairway lighting, it senses motion where it should not. It would be better if the blinders could be adjusted to make the viewing angle very narrow.
The sensor also operates when the lighting level is already adequate for a stairway or hallway; it cannot be adjusted to be less sensitive and still work.
If the product is used to control hallway or stairway lighting, incandescent lighting should be used because the life of fluorescent lights of all kinds is greatly reduced when turned on and off frequently. Lights use very little energy when the total operating time is only a few minutes a day.
Again, the product may work very well for its stated intended purpose, but improvement would be required to make it work well to control stairway or hallway lighting.

This is the 3ed switch that I have purchased for this light. The first 2 were not compatible to my light. I had to contact the manufacture to get the correct application. No one in the store knew what I needed nor is this switch stocked in any local store.
