How to use two of these devices to act as an "automatic" 3-way switch?

I have a pair of long staircases connected by a landing in my home. Can I use two of these devices so that when I am at the top of the first staircase and begin to descend, the lights would automatically go on, and remain on (for at least several minutes) or until I pass the second device at the bottom of the second staircase at which point, the lights would go off? Of course, I'd also like it to work similarly when I would ascend the stairs. Would I need to also install two standard 3-way switches?

I wanted to do something similar. I wanted to put one at each end of a long narrow room that has a door at each end so that the lights would come on if you came in either door. I was informed that you cannot put two of these occupancy sensors on the same circuit, and the "other" switch would have to be a special switch. There is an option made by Watt Stopper where you have a low voltage circuit that can have more than one occupancy sensor turn on a light. We use them at each end of long warehouse aisles. Maybe there is something else out there that I don't know about. My only other suggestion if you want to use the Maestro products would be to have two light circuits, two sets of lights, with a sensor at the top for one set and a sensor at the bottom for the other set.

Answer: 
Three way set ups can get complicated with these switches so your best bet is to contact the manufacturer directly. They have a very helpful team of people who can help you make the most suitable decision for your particular set up.

Answer: 
This product can work with a standard mechanical switch but the mechanical switch needs to be rewired in order to function properly. For help with the wiring, I would encourage you to reach out to Lutron's 24/7 tech support at 1-844-588-7661 where a representative would be happy to assist you.

I am installing this in the stairway and the hallway currently it have three switches. One is the main on and off the other two works only when the main is on.
So one is at the bottom of the staircase, the other is at the top of the staircase, and the last main switch is at the end of the hallway.
How many do I need to install to make this work?
And will this Maestro 5-Amp Single-Pole/3-Way Occupancy Sensing Switch work?
So let say someone is coming up the stair the light turns on and goes off in 15 or 30 seconds or one minute.
Also vice versa someone is coming from the end of the Hallway the light turns on and goes off in 15 or 30 seconds or one minute.
Lastly someone is going down the stair the light turns on and goes off in 15 or 30 seconds or one minute.

Unfortunately, this product would not work in this application because you can only have one occupancy sensor in a circuit. The product that would work properly for your application would be the MRF2-1S8A-1OC but you would need to buy multiple wireless sensors, one for each entrance way and replace the switches in the wall with the one that comes in this pack, and the rest with it's companion product Read More

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 54 reviewers.
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
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Handy features but can be annoying! I purchased several of these switches for the house. I need to reprogram them as the timing is just not what I need. But they are nice-looking switches and do the job. Good value for money. March 22, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Low amp, Can only sensor one place I was hoping to put two of these on either end of my basement to turn the lights on when someone came in either door. The sensor only can handle a 5 amp load so it won't work for my 820 watts (7.5 amps) of lights in the basement. You can't use two of these together so it isn't a true 3-way unit. One end still needs a switch. I'm not sure if this is a good product or not. It just isn't the right one for my project. March 1, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works very well. Will purchase more. Works great. Very sensitive. And I really like the auto off timer. I was able to install this switch myself in a 3-way wiring setup. There was a little trial and error but I quickly figured it out. Overall, it was pretty simple and took less than 30 minutes. This switch works great for the mudroom where we often enter the house with an armful of groceries. I also installed one in a walk-in closet for when the hands are full with a laundry basket. I'm planning on installing another one in the garage. January 26, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great product This Lutron sensing switch was a great decision on my part to install. It was easy to install and works well. It stays on when in the room not like others where you need constant movement January 26, 2016
