Customer Reviews

Works well, but could be better I have this one as well as some of the TopGreener units in my house. This one works and is easy enough to set up/install with home wiring knowledge. It does require a common ground to work especially in newer homes which should have it anyway. In my new house that was completed in 2017 I have arc fault breakers that will trip if it is wired without the common ground. I tried it both ways out of curiosity.The other TopGreener units have a wider field of vision than this one, making them more sensitive. For example I have to walk further into the room to trip this one whereas with the others, they trip as soon as I cross the threshold. The wider field of vision would be nice since I have this one in the garage. If I am working to the side of it, It sometimes turns the lights off and I have to go get back in front of it to get them back on.In summary, this unit does work, and does what it is designed to do, but could be better when compared to the simpler and slightly cheaper TopGreener unit. 4This motion sensor/occupancy switch is a steal. This motion sensor/occupancy switch is a steal. Normally, these units cost upwards of $30 or more. However, much of that cost is in the heat sinks and power semiconductors needed to handle 1000 watts or more. Leviton got smart and said with leds and fluorescent lighting that people are now using, that kind of power handling is no longer always necessary and so they came out with this unit which can only handle 150 watts, but that s plenty for leds and fluorescent lighting. Works like a charm and comes in light almond which is unusual at this price point. The only downside is that it is only for single pole applications, not 3-way situations. The other thing that makes it very easy to install is that neutral is not required and it has very nice insert type screw terminals, another expensive feature. Just one thing to remember is that when installing this unit, you have to know which black wire on the existing switch is the load and which is the source or hot wire. Electricians often mark the source wire with black tape, but not always and, if not, it's usually the bottom wire (although don't stake you life on that). Easy to determine by using a simple tester and test the voltage on each terminal against ground. The wire that is always hot regardless of whether the switch is on or off, is the souce or hot wire. 5Just What We Needed I installed 2 of these. One light fixture is a 2-tube fluorescent and the other is a single bulb CFL. Both work fine.We needed (wanted?) to eliminate turning on the lights in the pantry and the master closet every time we went in. These switches provided the solution.Hints:When you wire them correctly, the LED on the front of the switch will begin flashing immediately. After your install, if you turn the circuit breaker on and you don't get the LED then just turn off the breaker, reverse the wires at the BK and RD terminals and turn the breaker back on. You should see the LED flashing.Find the two small rotary switches UNDER the detector face plate (press down on the top and pull forward a bit to get it loose) and read about them in OPERATION and ADJUSTMENT SETTINGS in the instructions.Once the switch turns on and the closet (or whatever) light comes on, the switch will not work again until the timer has run out. That is, if you have it set for 5 minutes and it turns on the light, the timer will run for 5 minutes and turn the light off. But be aware that if you manually turn it off with the push button below the sensor, the switch will NOT detect motion until the remainder of the original 5 minutes (or whatever time you have set) has run out. So,when you are working and setting things up, set the timer to minimum (30 seconds) or you will think things just aren't working but they really are.Our closet light is outside the closet, at one end of the main area of the master bath. That meant that the switch could "see" the entire room and so it turned on the closet light any time anyone went into the master bath. My solution was to use a bit of black tape and cover a portion of the sensor so that it limited its field of view to the area near the closet doors. A little trial and error and I had it just right. 5When you get it working its great. Getting there is challanging with poor instructions When you get it working its great. Getting there is challanging with poor instructions. Why are instructions never written in plain easy to understand English. To get it to work as an occupancy switch only you need to be an expert in PECU's (Photo Electric Control Units) Why not just say "Occupancy detector only - turn the photo cell switch(Light level) fully clockwise". However its the easiest switch to install (Competition has flying leads, never good) just like a single pole switch. Its also has good wide coverage but you can narrow its field of view with masking tape (Not explained anywhere) I understand its a new product for Leviton & $4 cheaper than competition. 4I was so disappointed in the ambient light sensor which did not work ... Bought 2 but only 1 worked. The defective one was replaced by seller and worked.But even when they work, I was so disappointed in the ambient light sensor which did not work at all. If this sensor is set at 0, then it will need to be manually turned on by pressing the switch so the next lowest level available for automatic on is 1. I adjusted it down to level 1 but even with plenty of daylight ambient light (there were even sun rays present in the hallway that the switch is installed just to emphasize how bright my ambient light is), the switch still turns on every time it detects motion. Since both of them behave the same way, I do not believe I have 2 defective ambient light sensors but they just rather do not even work. Even the ambient light sensors from the cheap night lights work as they should but these switches will just turn on whenever it detects motion regardless of the ambient light.Here is another annoying problem for my situation: I installed one upstairs at the wall against the end of the stairs on the second floor. Walking up pass halfway the stairs and the sensor will not be turned on yet. This is acceptable for I did not expect the sensor to detect motion at a lower angle like that. However, If I walk by on the first floor without going up the stairs, the switch will turn on! In other words, just walking by on the side of the stairs on the first floor will activate the switch located on the second floor. But then walking up the stairs will not activate it until more than half way up. Therefore, it is too sensitive when I do not need it to turn on and then not enough when I need it to turn on.Why even include ambient light sensors that do not even work? So disappointed. 1Gave up on this thing after one year of use. Good replacement for my previous motion detection switch, since it can handle LED bulbs without any problems.It does have a rather loud click when it turns on, but it's not annoying. It has randomly turned itself on on several occasions, which is a little disconcerting.Update 2017-11-14: The switch still, on occasion, randomly turns on at night, which makes me think there's an intruder in my home... Very annoying. I might just junk it and go back to my original motion switch.Update 2018-05-01: No matter how much tweaking I do with the controls, I still cannot get the thing to stop turning on randomly. I'm done with it... Reinstalling my previous motion sensor switch even though it doesn't completely work with LED bulbs. 1Don't "leave it on" ...get Leviton Works like a charm. Connected HOT wire to the BLACK screw. Connected LOAD wire to the RED screw. Connected GROUND wire to the GREEN screw. Energized the power and waited 40 seconds for unit to come alive as per instructions. Removed cover and set unit for 5 minute delayed turn off and to only come on in low light conditions. Instructions were ok, but really vague on how to enable "Vacancy Mode". Enable VAC mode by turning the ambient light setting all the way counter-clockwise. There was just a small note about this, which initially tripped me up because I turned the ambient light setting all the way down in my Auto-On setup. When the lights never came on, I had to scour the instructions for a solution. I had it in Vacancy mode by accident! 5Excellent, works great to control my bathroom fan! Works fine but takes some time getting used to the settings. Using it to trigger bathroom fan.Documentation is bad especially regarding that ambient light dial, should be explained in simple terms.Timer Off delay no issue at all, I set it to 30s for testing and later on to dial setting 2 (15min))My bathroom is dark when I enter so sensitivity dial needs to be turned all the way clockwise (otherwise the fan turns Off but right back ON again...) I called Leviton technical support for this, should not be required.You can manually turn On/Off by clicking the switch, however, when you turn manually Off it won't "re-arm" the motion sensor right away, you have to wait the set time period (15min in my case) what is strange especially if you are using it to control lights...In my case using it with the bathroom fan this is no issue at all... 5I prefer Lutron Maestro Senso Did not work for me and I've installed several motion sensors. I went back to the "Lutron Maestro Sensor switch, 2A, No Neutral..." and it worked right out of the box. One thing I realized I prefer about the lutron is that when leaving a room, you can press the button to turn it off and the motion sensor still works after you do this (after about 10 seconds). With this leviton, once you click it, the motion seems to go off until you turn it back on. My unit was defective so perhaps that is not a feature but check it out because the instructions are poor. 2Works well once up and running This occupancy sensor does a good job once you get it into place and set the way you want it. Here are some things you need to know to make it work well:1. This is a single pole switch only. If you have a three-way switch, you will need a different sensor, such as the Lutron Maestro MS-OPS5M-WH. If you get into what you think is an ordinary single pole switch and find it has three wires attached to it, you more than likely have a three-way switch.2. Unlike an ordinary light switch, this switch cares which wire is hot and which is not. Before you turn off the power to the circuit, use a multimeter to figure out which wire is hot by placing one probe on the ground wire bundle (bare copper in the back of the box) and one probe on each switch terminal in turn. You ll need to turn the existing switch itself off to do this otherwise there will not be any voltage difference between the two terminals. I use a bit of painter s tape above or below the switch to indicate which wire is hot. Then, after flipping the breaker and pulling the switch out, I use the painter s tape to mark the hot wire before disconnecting it from the old switch s terminal.3. This switch requires a ground wire. Your existing switch likely does not. You will need to purchase some wire, 12 or 14 gauge, to connect to the existing ground wires that are twisted and capped off inside the switch box. Buy several feet, because once you start installing these sensors you will find additional uses for them around the house! You ll need at most six inches of wire for each sensor. Go ahead and strip off two or three inches of insulation for the part that you are going to twist with the existing bundle of ground wires. This makes integrating your new ground wire into the existing bundle so much easier than stripping just a short piece. Besides, it s a ground wire! The existing ground wires in the box are completely bare, so no worries about having extra bare wire here.4. Before connecting anything to this sensor, use a screwdriver to ensure that all the terminal screws turn freely. Sometimes the coating on these screws can cause difficulty at first and must be broken loose. This is SO much easier to do before you start trying to hook things up to it. After you have made the connections to the sensor, go back over your tightening routine a couple of times. For some reason, I had some I thought were tight but turned out to be loose and needed at least two or three more turns to be tight. Weird.5. Once all your connections are made, but before shoving everything back into the box and screwing the sensor to the wall, turn the breaker back on. Some of these sensors will immediately come to life, turning on the lights. Others will sit and stupidly blink a green light for some time before coming to life. Give these slow learner switches a chance to warm up and come to life before writing them off and sending them back. Once the switch is functioning, flip the breaker off and use a blunt stick of some sort to shove the wires back into the box. Then, attach the sensor to the switch box using the two provided screws.6. Before applying the switch plate (you ll need one of the decora switch covers available at any home improvement store), you need to set the delay and light sensitivity. The delay is how long the lights stay on after motion ceases. I have found that five minutes (setting 1) works well for closets and laundry rooms. Thirty seconds (setting 0) works well for toilet areas. If the light goes out while you re doing your business, just wave. It will come back on. I didn t mess with the light sensitivity setting. There is no adjustment for motion sensitivity. The adjustment screws for delay and light sensitivity are under the plastic portion of the switch that is exposed during normal use. You must pull it from the top to remove it. A small flat-blade screwdriver does the trick for turning the adjustments. Snap the plastic piece back into place, being careful not to break off the little tabs that hold it in place.7. Apply the switch plate and take it for a spin. If, after living with the sensor, you decide you need to adjust it, just remove the switch plate and repeat step number 6.I only gave it four stars due to the 'slow learner' problem mentioned above, which does not affect all of these sensors equally. I currently have five of these installed at the house. Early in the project, I sent one switch back. Now I wonder if it was simply a slow learner like a couple I received in my second order. 4
