If i want to control hallway step light from mutiple locations do i need to change all the switch to sensor switch or just one

Asked by Moe March 30, 2021
1
Answer

On a multi-location lighting circuit, one MS-OPS5M would be installed to automatically turn the lighting on and off. In the remaining locations would be either a standard mechanical switch (3-way circuits only) or companion switch (MA-AS).

Asked by DogLover March 4, 2021

Answers

The MS-OPS5M uses passive infrared sensors for the occupancy and vacancy sensing, meaning it detects the heat from occupants moving within an area to determine whether the space is occupied. The sensors on the MS-OPS5M can turn on if it does detect an animal in the room. Lutron would recommend setting the MS-OPS5M to vacancy mode so the lights will only turn on by pressing the tap switch on the control but then will automatically turn off when the timeout has expired and no motion is detected.

Can this be wired in a 4 way switch configuration?

Asked by Doc February 7, 2021

Answers

Yes-kinda. You'll have to wire it into one of the three way switches wired to the 4 way, and then modify the other three way switches' wiring.

It triggers depending on the ambient light. If the bathroom is too bright during the day, then it won't come on automatically. But, you and turn it on manually during the day and the timer will automatically turn it off.

Works just the way it's supposed to
I needed this motion sensor switch for a long hallway from the garage to the kitchen. The light switch is not within reach when coming in the door from the driveway, and at night that is an issue since that spot is very dark. I installed this switch at the end of the hallway next to the garage entry and it has solved that problem – the light comes on automatically and I have it set to turn off after 1 minute of no motion. The programming steps are easy and you can set it to turn off 1 minute, 5 minutes, 15 minutes, or 30 minutes after it stops sensing motion. You can set the sensitivity at low or high, although I have not noticed much difference between the two. It is sensitive enough that even my cat will trigger the light once she’s half-way down the hallway; for humans and large dogs it triggers as soon as I enter the hallway from the kitchen, which is 26 feet direct sight from the sensor switch. You can also adjust for daylight sensing, although the end of my hallway is always fairly dim so that setting is not much different in my particular situation (set all preferences BEFORE installing the cover plate.) I felt the directions were easy to understand and I also found several helpful videos online, but once I pulled out my existing switch I found that my wiring setup was a bit different than what the instructions or videos showed – I had a third black wire and no ground wire connected to the existing 3-way switch. I used a contactless voltage detector pen to determine which black wires were hot. I called the Lutron 24/7 tech line and they walked me through the correct wiring configuration for my situation and stayed on the phone until I completed it and confirmed that the switch was working properly. That was awesome! The switch does take a couple of minutes to self-program once you turn the power back on, so don’t panic if it doesn’t work immediately. You can hear a low click when the lights come on – not a big deal for me. A 3-way application like mine requires that you also modify the wiring on the companion switch (clearly stated on step 3 of instructions) - that was very easy and requires no additional supplies. This switch is a total win for me.

Installation is somewhat simple, so far it’s working as expected , but if you’re not operating anything other than bulbs you’re better off with a lower priced one unless you also need three way operation cover is extra about $5.00 regular covers don’t work well

Great energy saving motion activated.
Lutron's Maestro Occupancy Sensor switch is a easy, and low cost way to save energy and add automation to your home in just five minutes. The auto off feature of this motion sensor switch saves me a lot in energy cost (Programmable time-out of lights - 1, 5, 15, or 30 minutes). I installed this unit in my homes entryway, lights before install would stay on all day and sometimes all night. This sensor features XCT Sensing Technology which detects minor motion, such as typing at a desk or reading, ensuring sensor does not turn off inadvertently. Also equipped with ambient light detection, you can customize your sensor to detect daylight so lights don't turn on with enough natural light in your room. This Maestro Sensor works with any bulb type, including CFLs and LEDs, or fans up to 3 amps. This switch can also be easily programmed to function as a vacancy (manual-on) sensor. Coordinating Claro wall plates accessories sold separately. Up to 600 Watt incandescent, halogen, electronic low Watt voltage; 200 Watt magnetic low Watt voltage; Single-pole/3-way only No neutral wire required

Comes In Very Handy
While it is somewhat expensive, this is exactly the product we needed and really looks great in the prominent location we have it installed. Our garage is attached to the house through our laundry/mud room, which is an area often passed through or briefly used, but one which requires bright light through its single overhead light. At least 90% of the time this light was left on because our hands are full carrying kids to the car or baskets of laundry to and from the washer and dryer any time we enter or leave this area. And I cant count the number of times I bumped into something because my hands were too full to even turn on the light. Both the problem of turning on the light and keeping the light from being left on are solved by this single product, which took less than half an hour to install, even with only a little experience with wiring electrical outlets and switches. The installed switch looks great, still allows the secondary switch by the garage door to work, and ensures this frequently-traversed part of our house will never be unlit or wasting electricity with a light left on. Even though it is installed on a wall at a 45 degree angle away from the door to the kitchen, the motion detector still turns the light on by the time you are just a few inches through the doorway.

Easy installation in homes with modern wiring
My pantry has a light and switch located at almost the furthest point from the door, so frequently we find ourselves stumbling around in the dark trying to find the switch. This motion sensor switch has solved our problem. In a home wired according to electrical codes, installation is quick and easy- just follow the clearly written instructions, being sure to connect the ground wire. The small amount of power required to operate the switch requires that one connection on the switch must be grounded. Our older home, wired by persons unknown, had ground wires in some places and not others. Our pantry was one of the places without grounding, but I was able to route a new ground wire from a receptacle on the other side of the pantry wall. The motion sensor switch turns the light turns on as soon as we go through the door. Problem solved.
