Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Art Fantastic Motion Sensing Light Switch
I purchased this to automatically turn on the lights in my garage. It works even better than I intended. I knew that since it was right by the door, it would turn on the overhead LED lights as I walked into the garage. I also expected it would sense my car driving in, and turn on the lights before I could open the door and get out of my car.
What I didn't expect was that it even senses the garage door opening, as it gets near the top of the track, and flips on the overhead garage lights as I'm beginning to pull the car into the garage. I'm extremely pleased with the way this device works.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by tinker1 Wonderful product!
I've used several Lutron products in the past few years and they are all excellent products. I have used several of these programmed differently for rooms with different types of usage. I love being able to leave some rooms on and expect them to turn off on their own and other rooms just come on when I walk in, saving electricity as well as providing light when I need it and dark when I don't need it!
You do have to be careful to ground the switch before testing it. The only one I tried before grounding blew out immediately and never worked again, but on all the others I followed the grounding instructions and all worked properly.
Also, the programming was difficult for me to follow, but if I kept the instructions in my hand, I was able to do everything I needed to do.
I highly recommend this excellent product

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by cyber2steve Product not as advertised by manufacturer
I purchase two of these sensor dimmers for the top of the stairs (Front and Basement), then a companion dimmer for the front one which is a two way... They work fairly well but the sensor range is not as advertised... It is supposed to be 30 ft horizontal, 4 ft vertical, yet with the sensor set to highest sensitivity it will not detect anyone coming from the bottom of the stairs until you are on the last step at the top which is right in front of the sensor...
Planning to return and purchase another brand...

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MyrBeach1 Motion sensor, dimmer light for hall. Great idea!
I put this in the hall so that anyone walking out of a bedroom or bath could have the light come on. I like that it can be programed for whatever dimmer setting you like so that in the middle of the night you are not blinded by the light. You can also program the timer for when it goes out too. It was easy to install and looks good too. The light switch covers you have for the newer light switches fit so you do not have to buy new ones.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sebastian A new member to the Maestro Family; the CFL/LED Occupancy Sensing Dimmers
This is the new addition to the Lutron Maestro family, the MAESTRO 150-WATT SINGLE-POLE/3-WAY CFL-LED DIMMER WITH OCCUPANCY SENSING technology.
Technology is advancing everyday, and it makes our lives more easy and convenient.
Very easy to install and to program with various features. It turns ON and brightens gradually, and turns OFF with gradually dimming. It also works as an Occupancy sensor with various time outs. Daylight sensor is another feature, it will not turn ON at day time, if you set that feature.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jswobe An occupancy sensor with loads of extras
This occupancy sensor works very well and has a number of great features.
1. It can be set to a specific dimness level. The dimming works with both CFLs and LEDs.
2. It can wired to a single pole or a 3-way circuit.
3. There is a manual on/off switch.
4. It has a light sensing ability that can be used to prevent it from turning the lights on during daylight. Moreover, it has the ability to learn when those times are as you turn it off during full daylight.
5. All of the settings are adjustable.
I have it in a laundry room, and it is behind the dryer in what would seem to be a defilade that would prevent it from working. But it has a wide sensing angle and thus works quite well.
If there is any problem with this switch, it's the inclusion of the dimming capability. For an occupancy sensing switch, it's largely unnecessary in my view.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DIYer88 Great for kid's bathroom
I have a number of Lutron switches and outlets and was eager to try this one with occupancy sensor. It replaced a standard single pole decora switch in the bathroom downstairs that the kids use often...so now no more lights being left on! Installation was a breeze. After switching the power off from the breaker panel, I removed the face plate and single pole switch and disconnected the wires. The back of the Lutron switch has both screw terminals and push-in terminals, and since my solid wires were already cut and stripped to the correct length, all I had to do was push them into the push-in terminals and connect the ground wire. All the hardware is included; wire nuts, screws to mount the switch, and even a jumper wire for a 3-way switch rewire. The face plate, however, is not included. But this wasn't an issue since I was replacing an existing switch. This CL dimmer has a lot more flexibility for installations than I needed for my single pole replacement. But the programming features to customize how long the lights would stay on, the sensitivity, etc. were needed and appreciated. Most important to me was the timeout adjustment which allows you to set it to 1 min, 3 min, 5 min, 15 min or 30 min before the lights turn off after triggered. I set it for 5 min but may adjust it later. Also good to note is that you can customize the settings without having to remove the switch from the wall,and that this switch will work with dimmable CFL or LED bulbs. So far, it has worked very well with the kids. The only knock I have is that the switch doesn't seem to detect motion through a glass shower door, which could be because of the steam. In my installation, the switch faces a small shower with sliding glass doors, and after the timeout period, I had to open the door and wave my hand for it to active again. Anyway, this isn't a major issue since this shower is not used that often.
