5 Amp 3-Way Wall Mount Occupancy Sensor, White is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 20.

I picked up this 5 amp 3-Way Wall Mount Motion Sensor in White, OS306U by Eaton , for installation in my garage by the walk thru door. Now I don't have to feel around the door opening in the dark, just walk in. This sensor/switch is rated for 5 amp at 120 vac. and operates most lamp types, as stated on the container. The wiring instructions are concise and complete, and able to work in either a two way or three way circuit. I had no problem installing the switch, replacing a standard wall switch. If there is any question about the wiring, contact a licensed electrician for assistance. There is a warning to not try to install hot (power on) as this is an electronic device and really dislikes incorrect wiring and voltage spikes. Besides I dislike that zap sensation associated with electrical shocks. The sensor is adjustable for ambient light as well as delay time to turn off the connected light.The unit is warrantied for two years with conditions. Another great improvement in living.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Motion Sensor Switch by Eaton was developed to replace a standard wall switch, allowing the light fixture to turn on simply by entering the room. It would be a great feature for a room such as a laundry room where occupants frequently enter with full arms (laundry baskets). Installation was pretty straight forward in a single switch and fixture configuration. The sensor can also be used in a three way application. Installation only took about 15 minutes with detailed instructions included. The electrical connections on this were color coded to make it easy for a homeowner. The sensor has a push button switch if you would like to turn it on manually. Under the manual push button you will find the setting adjustments for room light level (ambient conditions) and a timer setting to allow the fixture to turn off after a desired time frame of 5 – 10 – 20 – or 30 minutes. You will not need to purchase a wall plate cover separately, because the sensor comes with one.

Product: Eaton 5 Amp 3-Way Wall Mount Occupancy Sensor/Country of Origin: China///// I absolutely love motion sensor switches and this one is no exception. There's nothing better than the peace of mind that comes from not having to concern oneself with turning lights on or off. No fumbling for the switch in a dark room and - better yet - no wasted electricity! When someone enters a room the lights come on and when that person leaves...voila...they turn off automatically within the time frame that the switch has been set to. It also has a photocell which stops the switch from turning on when the room is already adequately lit. This type of switch may or may not be practical for the kitchen or family room, but it's a fantastic addition to the bedrooms, bathrooms and home offices at the very least.

Finally had time today to install works great, was fairly east to install but the unit is pretty delicate the two removable covers top of switch and bottom of switch are pretty light weight plastic, don't need into the top but you will need into the bottom cover to set light levels at which the motion will work from during the day to only night and in-between and that cover also in a manual on, I install in my tool & small parts room and set to come on when I enter the room is slower on time when walking into the room than my other that controls the whole shop it comes on right not, I can barely open a door or walk into the room and light are on, an has been install for a couple years and I have never had problems, just hope where I used this on will never be touched and will not have lots of on/off traffic as not sure how well will stand up to it. But I to like the unit so time will tell

I have a few of these in my house (where it makes sense to have an auto switch like this one). I put this one on the light switch in the small room that has just the toilet in it. It's nice to know that if that light is left on (either leave the house for an extended period or the door is subsequently closed when the light is on), the light will go off on its own. Additionally, I like that the light can still be controlled manually by pushing the pressure switch ON/OFF. In any event, if the light is accidentally left on, it will go off after a preset period. I have another one in my garage controlling my overhead lighting. Since most of the trips into the garage are to get something out of the fridge it makes sense to have an auto switch light this controlling that circuit. It's very easy to install (15 mins). Works great.

I actually used it to make a building laundry room lights automatically activate when a person is occupying the Laundry. I needed this kind of switch because the people will live light on overnight and on always which become little costly. This setup let me maintain the normal on/off switch while also having it turn on whenever the motion is in laundry is detected.

It helps with an awkward "old house" problem where the builders didn't really think through the location of the light switches in a room that is also a main passage way for people heading off to bed, or sneaking into the kitchen for a midnight snack. We were all getting pretty good at walking across the dark room to turn on the light, or to leave the room after turning it off, but this occupancy sensor switch will save some bruised toes and up-ended end tables in the future, especially when we have guests in the house.

This switch is perfect for those hallways that you never go down or a utility room. Rooms that you may carry something into. I installed it in my family room since the downstairs is where my son goes to the bathroom. Unfortunately (fortunately now) I don’t have to worry about whether he left the light on downstairs. The timer works great and wish I got this switch earlier. You could also manually turn it off in case you don’t need it, such as when watching tv downstairs.
