Will it sense small animals ?

Asked by Fudd April 10, 2019

It absolutely works with LED's. Mine is mounted 20 feet up in a well-sealed building without small animals so I am not sure about that. I think it all depends how high you mount it and how large or small the animals actually are. For example, I'd say that tat 12' it would react to a dog. A mouse, probably not?

If correctly wired, can this be ceiling mounted in the center of a room to control the recessed LED lighting?

Asked by Bigdave March 24, 2019

You could make this work, but it is designed to be mounted into the end of light fixtures which are not recessed. If you mounted an electrical junction box, you can attach this to the box -- but if everything else electrical is recessed or otherwise flush-mounted/hidden, this is not a good fit.

Will this be sensitive enough to detect a cat I want to scare off? The neighbors cat is spraying ...

Asked by JD January 18, 2019

JJ, These will easily detect a small cat. Have 9 motion sensors mounted on 8' florescent (220v) lights at heights of 12' & 15' in the garage and our cat will set them off. Being able to set the duration of time they stay on is a bonus too. Going on 4 years with these and not a single problem. Have my doubts the light will scare off the cat.

Can this be used with another brand light - Commercial Electric - Store SKU #1002760845

Detection range not what expected
I ordered 22 of these to use in a garage lighting retrofit project. Of the 22, three were bad out of the box. One would not power on al all; two others would power on but not control the attached light. Exchanged units worked fine. Fits well into a standard knockout. As others have said, wiring can be confusing and the printed documentation is useless if you're not installing in a fixture with connectors matching those of the sensor. I dislike the fact that of the 5 wires, 3 are solid and 2 are stranded. The stranded wire can be difficult to seat solidly when using push-in wire connectors. They operate as advertised, although when mounted at 8-foot height, the detection range is much less than I anticipated, not more than 10 feet in some cases (when properly using the provided low-bay lens, of course.) At that height, the sensors seem sensitive to being very level, as a slight tilt down can lower the range even more. Setting the operating interval is simple and reliable. These emit a very pronounced "click" when they activate; you wouldn't want to mount this in a quiet area where that would be annoying. Having to make 3 trips to a store to replace the bad units was irritating, and hopefully isn't indicative of poor life expectancy. LIthonia could do a better job with the packaging. Nearly every one of these found at local stores had seriously mangled boxes; a couple were missing the optional low-bay lens. Other than the somewhat disappointing range, these are doing the job of controlling our lighting based on occupancy. The price is among the lowest I've found (you can spend a lot more for a sensor) and in that respect they're a good deal.

Works very well, found it very easy to install and program
I'll start by stating that I'm not an electrician or professional contractor. I bought two of these to control two 8' T5HO fixtures in the garage that tend to get left on all day. Pro: Not much to the installation-all parts are included for a standard installation. I found the instructions to be very easy to follow. Con: Top of the fixture is rather 'long' and couldn't be directly attached to my T5 fixtures (which are very small). I made a trip to the local HD and bought two pieces to adapt the sensor to the fixture. I removed the wires from the larger plug and fed the rest of it through the adapter and reattached the wires to the plug. Overall: I tested the first unit by putting my BBQ mitt over the sensor and waiting 15 minutes (the default setting). At 15 minutes and 3 seconds the light turned off. I'm leaving this part alone as 15 minutes is about where I wanted it to be in the end anyway. Installation of the first unit took 30 minutes while I worked out a way to install the sensor on the small T5HO fixture. The second unit (with the two additional pieces) took less than 10 minutes. I used a flat blade screwdriver, a pair of pliers (to remove the plug on the light fixture), and four larger wire nuts.

Nice sensor
Easy to install. Direction weren't too complicated. I mounted mine right on the end of the first fixture. This way the subsequent fixtures on the circuit would all go on/off as well.

Product not as described! I'm heading back to Home Depot for my third sensor! Cannot adjust the time! The sensor works great! I disconnected my garage door opener lights, when the sensor sees the door movement the lights come on. Would like to be able to lessen the on time.
