About our Lutron Maestro Occupancy-Vacancy Sensor C-L Dimmer, Multi-Location

This switch combines a dimmer with an occupancy-vacancy sensor for added versatility and energy-savings. The dimmer may be set to turn lights on at various light levels or locked to a pre-set level. Additional settings are available to fade the lights off. This occupancy-vacancy sensor from Lutron carries a 5-year warranty and is UL listed.


  • Uses: perfect for small rooms like laundry room, bathroom, nursery, kitchen, kid's playroom, storage room - 900 square foot coverage or less. Ideal for rooms where lights are often left on accidentally, such a child's room, or rooms where you often enter with your hands full, such as a laundry room or a storage room.
  • 4 Attractive Finishes: White (Model # MSCL-OP153M-WH), Ivory (Model # MSCL-OP153M-IV), Almond (Model # MSCL-OP153M-AL), and Light Almond (Model # MSCL-OP153M-LA)
  • Dual Sensor: sensor may act as either an occupancy sensor or as a vacancy sensor
    In the occupancy mode the sensor will automatically turn lights on when you enter a room and turn them off when you leave
    In the vacancy mode lights must be turned on manually when you enter a room but they turn off automatically when you leave
  • Dimmer: while the lights are on they may be dimmed, providing even more energy savings
  • Light Sources Controlled: 150 watts of CFLs or LEDs or 600 watts of incandescent, halogen, or xenon
  • Ambient Light Detection: lights turn on only when there’s not enough daylight in the space
  • Advanced Sensing Technology: uses a proprietary XCT reliable sensing technology, which detects fine motion, eliminating false shut-offs
  • Savings: average savings in energy costs is $10/yr. Savings could be as much as $25/yr (assuming 240 watts, an electricity rate of $0.11/kWh, and a 54% reduction in energy usage). Actual savings will vary with usage, application, and electricity rates.
  • Adjustable Time Delay: will turn off lights after 1 to 30 minutes depending on how the time delay is set
  • Technology: passive Infrared (PIR) technology detects human movement in room
  • Adjustable Sensitivity Settings: sensitivity can vary from a low of "1" (used to avoid false alerts in smaller rooms or near a doorway or near a heat source) to a high of "2" (used in larger rooms)
  • Motion Detection Area: detects major motion up to 30 feet away and minor motion up to 20 feet away
  • Adjustable Light Level Settings: may be set to turn lights on at 100%, 50%, the last light level, or locked to a pre-set light level
  • Off Warning: fades lights to off over a period of 10 seconds
  • Wallplate NOT Included: does NOT include a wallplate. Compatible with Lutron Claro style wallplates.
