I have found the switches to be very sensitive when set to the 'motion sensitivity high' position and the specification states coverage of 900 square feet (81 sq m) with mounting height of 4 feet (1.2 m) and a 180 degree field of view. Hope that helps.

When this is installed as a 3-way with a mechanical switch, does the sensor turn the mechanical switch off after a certain time without motion? I'm confused how the motion sensor interacts with the mechanical switch.

Answer: 
Yes, it does. In a 3 way switch, there is a line called the "Traveler". This line is normally used in 2 manual 3 way switches to cut on/off the power if either is switched (Causes the power to be physically turned on/off by either switch). However, using an old manual switch with this Maestro switch does require you to move the traveler wire (One of the 3 on the manual switch) to one of the regular Read More
Yes, it does. In a 3 way switch, there is a line called the "Traveler". This line is normally used in 2 manual 3 way switches to cut on/off the power if either is switched (Causes the power to be physically turned on/off by either switch). However, using an old manual switch with this Maestro switch does require you to move the traveler wire (One of the 3 on the manual switch) to one of the regular contact screws on the old 3 way switch. This effectively turns the old manual 3 way switch into a signal switch to the Maestro switch. If your light is on and you switch the old 3 way switch, the Maestro unit knows to turn the lights off and visa versa. Motion is detected by the Maestro unit as well as the time the light remains on regardless of which unit turns the light on. Read Less

If installed properly, it will work with a mechanical, 3-way switch. I've installed it in my house and I can turn on or off with the mechanical switch. It will still go off on it's own if no motion is detected after the programmed time.

Answer: 
The best way to think about this set up would be to think of the sensor in a single pole application. The mechanical switch will get rewired in a way where all it is doing is sending a signal to the sensor and telling the sensor to turn the lights on or off. If the light is turned on at the switch, the sensor will still look for motion and if it does not see any in the time out period, it will turn the Read More

I am asking about a Lutron Maestro 5 Amp Single Pole or 3-Way Occupancy Sensing Switch.

One review said "the other switch must be mechanical," but he was trying to use a dimmer.

I want to replace two mechanical switches at opposite ends of a hall with two of these
occupancy-sensing switches. Will that work?

No. I just spoke to tech support and you cannot use two of these occupancy sensor switches. One must be a standard 3-way mechanical switch.

No it will not work. In a 3-way arrangement like you are describing, you can use 1 mechanical switch and 1 Maestro 5 Amp Sensor Switch (MS-OPS5M-XX). You would want to install the MS-OPS5M at the location in the hallway that will give you the best coverage of that area.

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 54 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Find If you have rental property or if you live with someone that never turns the bathroom vent fan on or off, this product is for you. I installed one at a friends house after walking into his apartment to find the bathroom vent fan had been on all day. It comes preset to turn off after 30 minutes of run time, either from you turning on or from it sensing moisture and turning itself on. You can change the run time and the moisture sensor also. I purchased a second one and installed in a rental property. Great product. August 30, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Could not be better We changed to LED bulbs and the sensor in the bathroom no longer would turn the lights off. This switch was easy to install and program and works perfectly. We could not be more satisfied. August 23, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great for hallways and bathrooms installed in my baths and hallway, nice that the time-on can be adjusted August 25, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by light switch a litle difficult to get the timing set right...have to teach the switch what I want. still comes on when not wanted and shuts off if I do not move....i guess it still needs some tweeking August 9, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Does exactly what I needed. My wife was always leaving the light on in the laundry room, probably because her hands were full when carrying out the clean laundry. This sensing switch now turns the light off for her. Since this was on a 3 way circuit, it was difficult to get the wiring figured out, but once I did, it works perfect. Read the instructions carefully if wiring in a 3 way circuit. Another problem was the location of the switch. It is on a wall 90 degrees to the door and the light would come on each time I passed in the hallway. This was solved by cutting a small piece of self adhesive paper and covering half of the sensor. I can now stand right at the door and the light will not come on until I pass through the doorway. I am very happy with the operation-- my wife is, too. June 14, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Power saving light switch The switch is very easy to install and the programing instructions and set up is very simple. June 14, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Disappointed This switch worked fine for two weeks,then it would not stay lit for more than 15-20 seconds. Tried reboot and reprograming, nothing worked. Had to put the old switch back in before I could finish the project I was working on. Original idea was to save energy. Could have bought a lot of electricity for what I spent. June 2, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by works great This product works very well. I have 2 other brands of sensors and have problems with them shutting off. This one turns on and off correctly. It was also easy to install. I have a 3-way light so this sensor is on one switch and a normal on/off switch on the other side of the room. I did have to tape the bottom of the sensor so it would not go on when the dog went through to her doggy door. May 12, 2016
