Frequently Bought Together

Product Overview

Coordinating Claro wall plate and accessories sold separately. Let Lutron Maestro CFL/LED Occupancy Sensing Dimmers turn the lights on and off to your favorite level. It's a simple, easy, and low cost way to save energy and add light automation to your home. Install a Maestro Occupancy Sensing Dimmer and lights turn on when you enter the room, and then turn off automatically after you leave. The dimmer works just like a Lutron Maestro dimmer, gradually turning lights on and off, allowing your eyes to adjust to the new light level. Use the rocker to adjust the light level for any activity, or set the preset level to ensure lights always turn on to your desired light level. Equipped with ambient light detection, you can customize your sensing dimmer to detect daylight so lights don't turn on with enough natural light in your room. Keeping the sleek design of the Maestro family, Lutron sensors will match the decor of any room in your home. Install it in the laundry room for added convenience when your hands are full, or in the kids' rooms and never worry about lights being left on by mistake. Maestro Occupancy Sensing dimmers work with any bulb type, including dimmable CFLs and dimmable LEDs. This occupancy sensing dimmer can also be easily programmed to function as a vacancy (manual-on) sensor.

Answer: 
Sebastian's answer is not correct, and Lutron apparently didn't read the question.
The auto-on "occupancy" feature will fade up lights from off to either a level pre-determined by your programming of it, or whatever level the occupants last used.
If the lights are already on, either because of the motion sensor or manual activation, the motion sensor will only detect people gone and turn off the Read More

Answer: 
This dimmer has two settings for what level the lights will turned on to when someone walks in the room. The first is a “locked” preset where you can program the sensor to come on at a specific level every time (say 30%). The second option is an “unlocked” preset where the light will turn on at whatever level it was at when it was turned off. This can all be done in the programming of the sensor and if Read More

Answer: 
Unfortunately there is not a companion switch that you can use with the MSCL-OP153MH that will also include a sensor feature. For multi-location applications, the Maestro MA-RR-WH would need to be used or for 3-way applications, this model can be used with a standard mechanical switch.

Answer: 
Probably.
You can adjust it for high or low sensitivity, but low probably isn't low enough.
The only thing you might be able to do is mask the bottom or side of the sensor to block its view of the bed. Reducing the horizontal view (side masking) definitely does work...I've never tried reducing the vertical view.

Yes, this Maestro Occupancy Sensor can be triggered by any movement in their sleep. However these units can be easily turned into vacancy-only sensors which would be more practical in a bedroom. In other words, the lights would need to be turned on manually to come on, however if they do not sense movement for a specific amount of time (time adjustable through programming), then they will shut the lights Read More

I have a 6' led light strip that will not turn all the way off. After it times out it dims but does not seem to turn all the way off. Using the manual over ride defeats the purpose. Is there a wiring issue? I reprogrammed several times and reset defaults. Is the total wattage too low?

Answer: 
Is the light strip designed to be dimmable? That is one potential issue. Even if the light is supposedly dimmer compatible, some dimmer and lamp combos still do not play well together.
Have you experimented with the "low-trim" setting? It matches the dimmer to the fixture's dimming range.
Also,if this is a 3-way setup, make sure you programmed the dimmer according to what the other switch is, either a Read More

Answer: 
It is possible that the total wattage is too low but it will be dependent on the LEDs being used. The issue is that every LED is currently being manufactured differently and so the dimming performance will vary largely from one to the next. Because of this, Lutron has done extensive testing on many LEDs currently on the market and updates a compatibility list for the bulbs that we find to work well with Read More

Because of this, Lutron has done extensive testing on many LEDs currently on the market and updates a compatibility list for the bulbs that we find to work well with this dimmer. Lutron does offer occupancy switches (such as model MS-OPS2H-WH) that will work with any LED on the market however you would of course lose dimming capabilities.

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 37 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. August 23, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by didn't work for me - buzzing or hum sound when LED light was turned on not sure if this is common, this switch when turned ON (any of the settings, except OFF) would hum or buzz, slight sound but I know this would irritate me and packed it up and returned it asap didn't want to bother opening other packages and trying them out, will just wait until I hear or see someone who is over whelmed with their purchase paid more than I would normally and thought it would have been awesome - sadly disappointed August 31, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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 July 5, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 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... May 24, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. April 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. February 24, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy & simple install Great product & very easy to install this devise. It does not require ground like other same type of motion sensor switches. Bought several to install around the house. April 13, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. February 9, 2015
