You need to leave the wall switch on for it to work as an automatic motion sensor or humidity sensor.

Does this fan have an on and off switch on the wall or is it strictly motion detection?

Strictly motion and moisture. I put mine on a switch to regulate when this goes on. I don't need it to run in the winter.

Hi Joe, The sensor is that square item at the end of the hanging cord (when the top is open). Be sure it is inserted the right way. With the top shut, you cannot see it. There is a timer set for duration on motion, be sure it is set. Factory setting is 10 minutes.

This model doesn’t seem to work with the motion detector or humidity sensor so I would get the model without those features and use the wall switch. I tried to contact Panasonic about the issues but no response.

My guess is your humidity sensor is set too low. Remember all of our homes have and need some level of natural humidity in them. My humidity sensor came set at 30 which was way too low. Average/optimal natural humidity levels range from 30-50% depending on the time of year and where you live. The fan will run continually if the humidity isn't set for your area/home. To find the right balance for your house take off the vent cover, turn the timer off, then adjusting the humidity to a higher number like 60-70. Run hot shower water and see how quickly the fan activates/deactivates. Adjust the humidity sensor to trip sooner or later based on your preferences. Then reactivate the timer.

Can this fan operate with a wall switch and fan switch if the sensor fails or if someone wants to...

No, not without some internal requiring bypassing the sensor.

Thick ceiling drywall is a problem requiring extra work to install
I love these fans and have installed two, but the design does not accommodate what my house has which is two layers of ceiling drywall, totaling 1-1/4 inches of ceiling drywall. The most the standard installation of this fan can accommodate is just under an inch (see the photo), so I have to carve a layer of drywall to accomodate the bottom flange. I mark around the edge of the flange and use a razor knife/box-cutter to carve-out just one of the two layers. As the old fans are mounted next to joists, there is probably a fastener in that space, so it's good to use a finder to locate it before you start cutting. It all adds to the mess of enlarging the hole from the old fan. This is a pain, but otherwise, the fan is quiet and moves air very well. Gee, it would be great if Panasonic designed the fan with a bit more clearance so that such field modifications were not required where two sheets of 5/8 inch drywall make-up the ceiling. What do you think Panasonic?

Super quiet. Grill has clean lines and is pretty slim. Motion sensor works great. The output duct is fairly high on the side of the unit, which makes routing ducting easier over studs. Paid a bit more than some of the cheaper units, but once you start cutting holes in your ceiling and investing in ducting, it is more critical the base unit is good for the long run.

Just got this installed. Newly remodeled bathroom. Super quiet. It does have a 2 second delay whenever I turned the switch on. Unable to get an answer from Panasonic if this is normal. Only used it a couple of times. Hoping it will continue to work well and last a long time. My contractor did not say anything about installation. So I guess it’s not difficult if you know what your are doing.

Excellent Fan (wish there was more wiring options)
Great fan. You need a proper fan for controlling condensation and moisture, much better then cheap builder grade fans. I bought specifically for the humidity sensor functionality. If you hardwire it “on” (Ie constant power) then it could just operate by itself via sensors. However, we used a typical fan switch so it has a manual override. I.e. the sensors won’t turn the fan on because there’s no power to the unit. With the fan switch on then it will operate if 1) humidity sensor triggers or 2) motion detector triggers. I would have preferred it if the humidity sensor could trigger at any time and there was a manual on/off but I didn’t see that in any unit. I have used these fans for both my own residence, and commercial rental properties. Extremely quiet, but robust and effective. Installation is relatively simple. Took me a while at one place with plaster ceiling but the fan went in No problem. The plaster repairs took hours. With typical drywall no issue. Definitely recommend.

Really quiet, easy to install, nice bathroom exhaust.The only drawback is motion sensor is very sensitive and if you keep your bathroom door open, the fan will kick on just by walking by. I read about that elsewhere (there was nothing about that in the manual) and tried it myself. It worked; all you have to do is to angle the sensor a little bit outwards from walking area to stop this issue. You may be able to see that in my pictures attached.

Easy to install and once turned on it was so quiet I had to hold a piece of paper up to the grill to make sure it was running. This is the first exhaust fan that I have installed that was actually whisper quiet. Excellent product.

Much quieter than old fan
I purchased this fan to replace a very loud fan. I have had previous experiences with Panasonic fans so knew that it would be quieter than the existing one. This new fan although much much quieter than the old one feels like it pulls more air too. Installation required making an oversize hole because there was not any access from above. Also, I had to go down from the 4" diameter duct to the existing 3". Overall it took about a half day, including the drywall patch. Add another couple hours for finishing the drywall patch and then paint.
