Product Overview

Let Lutron's Maestro Occupancy Sensor switch turn the lights or fan on and off for you. It's a simple, easy, and low cost way to save energy and add automation to your home. Install a Maestro Sensor and lights/fan turn on when you enter the room, and then turn off automatically after you leave. 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. 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. Install a sensor in your bedroom so lights aren't left on mistakenly or in the bathroom for your exhaust fan. This Maestro Sensor works with any bulb type, including CFL's and LED's, or fans up to 3 Amp. This switch can also be easily programmed to function as a vacancy (manual-on) sensor. Coordinating wallplate included.

Can I install it upside down with the sensor on top so it can sense my garage stairs better?

Asked by Andy September 7, 2020
3
Answers

Yes, you should be able to install these upside down. FYI, as I found out after purchase, this type of switch will not work in a 3-way (or higher) configuration.

I currently have a dimmer on my light switch. Can I use this and retain the function of the dimmer. Thank you.

Answers

The MS-OPS5M provides motion detection with on/off control. Lutron does not recommend using a dimmer with this device. Instead, for motion detection and dimming at one or more locations, Lutron suggests the MSCL-OP153M and MA-R companion dimmer.

Yes, i bought this a few weeks ago, curb side pick up was so convenience. works as intended.

How do I adjust the time it’s on?

Asked by Chip June 8, 2020
2
Answers

The MS-OPS5M can have its timeout adjusted by holding the large tap switch (above sensor lens) and waiting for a series of flashes to occur on the sensor lens. You can see how many flashes correspond to the timeout setting by viewing the install guide here: http://www.lutron.com/TechnicalDocumentLibrary/0302800.pdf.

Answers

The lights can be turned on from either side of the 3-way when using the Maestro MS-OPS5M sensor with a mechanical switch, and the lights will stay on as long as the sensor detects movement. When the sensor detects no movement, it will enter the Timeout mode and will turn the lights off when the Timeout limit has been reached. If the sensor detects movement before the Timeout limit has been reached, the sensor will exit Timeout mode and the lights will remain on until the sensor no longer detects movement.

Asked by Janis March 22, 2020

Answers

The MS-OPS5M, and other Lutron occupancy sensors, currently do not have the ability to override the sensor feature. Lutron recommends extending the timeout to 30 minutes, which is the maximum amount of time allotted, and having the sensitivity level set for high.

I’d like to put this in a laundry room but afraid the vibration from spin cycles would turn the lights on. Can the sensitivity adjustment help w/this?

Asked by Lucy February 23, 2020

Answers

Should work just fine. I have this sensor switch in my laundry room, just eight (8) inches from washing machine (which is actually in front of the switch). Machine vibrates significantly depending on load, and does not trigger the sensor. Also, the sensor's sensitivity is adjustable, if necessary.

Will the motion sensor work if the unit is installed horizontally, on its side, rather than verti...

Asked by Lee January 22, 2020

Answers

It will work, but the sensor is designed for maximum coverage in a vertical orientation. If you mount it horizontally you will probably have a more narrow horizontal activation window.

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

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

Seeds Program Review
(What's this)
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.

Seeds Program Review
(What's this)
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.

Great switch. Very sensitive and turns on lights even though it is partially blocked from view. The switch was used to control 8 4' flouresent fixtures in a locker room. This has really helped to control our utility costs and turn off the lights when the room is unoccupied. Highly recommend.

Seeds Program Review
(What's this)
This Maestro occupancy sensor switch from LUTRON is a nicely designed and very functional. The switch with included Claro wall plate has a modern clean look and is a great switch to have in a laundry room, hallway, etc. It automatically turns lights on when enter room and its XCT Sensing Technology with 180 degree field of view ensures lights stay on when room is occupied and turns lights off after desired amount of time. This single pole/ 3- way switch works with all bulb types and also has a tap button to manually turn off lights in desired. I installed this motion sensor switch in my shed so I can enter with stuff in my hands without having to fiddle around to turn lights on. So far it has been working flawlessly and is a good improvement over other occupancy sensing switches I have used in the past.
