Q:I have two questions. One, can this be used in a damp location? Can I set this up so there are two of these switches in a three way set up? Note: The lights are already in and functioning with a single pole motion detector switch

Answer This Question

A:  Hello Dan, thank you for your question. Lutron products, including the MS-VPS5MH, are rated for 32 °F to 104 °F (0 °C to 40 °C), 0%–90% humidity, non-condensing, and are for indoor use only. You may only use one Maestro sensor in a multi-location application; the other switch must remain either an existing 3-way switch or an MA-AS Maestro Companion Switch. See the below spec sheet for more information: https://assets.lutron.com/a/documents/369666.pdf We hope this helps! If you require further assistance, our 24/7 support team is here to help. We can be reached at 1-844-LUTRON1 or via email at support@lutron.com.

    Q:Can I use this switch in a 4-way configuration? (one set of garage lights, two manual switches, plus this unit)
    by|Sep 30, 2020
    1 Answer
    Answer This Question

    A:  The MS-OPS5M can be used in single pole, 3-way or multi-location application. For 3-way applications Lutron recommends either a traditional 3-way switch or the companion switch (MA-AS). In multi-location applications, the companion switches (MA-AS) are required. For more information on wiring please visit https://www.lutron.com/TechnicalDocumentLibrary/369488.pdf

      Q:Can I use this switch to run a bathroom fan even during day time? There is a window on the bathroom and the light will not let most sensors.
      by|Sep 1, 2020
      1 Answer
      Answer This Question

      A:  The MS-VPS5M can be used with a bathroom fan. This particular sensor is "vacancy only" which means it will only turn on manually, and then turn off automatically after the bathroom is unoccupied.

        Q:Is there a lighted switch version of this unit to aid someone walking into a dark room seeking the switch??
        by|Jul 3, 2020
        1 Answer
        Answer This Question

        A:  Lutron recommends the MSCL-OP153M or MSCL-VP153M. These are the Maestro occupancy and vacancy sensor dimmers that have small indicator lights on the left that will emit a faint glow while the dimmer is off, making it easier to locate in the dark.

          Response from lutronMay 10, 2022
          Thank you for your review. This particular model is a vacancy-only sensor, which means you'll need to manually turn on the lights or fan. They will automatically turn off when the sensor no longer senses motion.

          If you'd prefer that the lights or fan both turn on, as well as off, automatically, we recommend the occupancy version of this sensor (model MS-OPS5M-WH).
