About our Lutron Maestro Occupancy-Vacancy Sensor Switch, Multi-Location
This occupancy-vacancy switch saves you money by automatically turning off lights when not needed. This switch uses advanced switching technology to reduce false shut-offs. It is perfect for smaller rooms and can detect motion up to 30 feet away.
- 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 # MS-OPS5M-WH), Ivory (Model # MS-OPS5M-IV), Almond (Model # MS-OPS5M-AL), and Light Almond (Model # MS-OPS5M-LA)
- Dual Sensor: sensor may act as either an occupancy sensor or as a vacancy sensor
In the sensor 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
- Light Sources Controlled: incandescent, halogen, xenon, electronic low voltage, magnetic low voltage, compact fluorescents (CFLs), LEDs, magnetic or electronic ballasts, 3-amp fan
- 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

Lutron Maestro Occupancy-Vacancy Sensor Switch, Multi-Location

Can this multi location switch be used as a set of two ...one at one end of a 25 foot hallway and a second one located at the other end of the same hallway to turn on a common light bulb located in the center of the hallway? So that as a person enters one end of the hallway the switch closest will turn on the common light bulb located in the center of the hallway...and also if a person enters the hallway at the other end of the hall way the switch closest to that end of the hallway will turn on the common light bulb located in the center of the same hallway. In other words two sensors connected to the same centrally located light bulb?

Answer:Sensors in general cannot be used as a set of 2 to control the same lighting circuit. However a sensor can be used at one end of a room with a 3-way wall switch at the other end of a room. For more information about a 3-way system please see section 2B, 3b and 4 found in the instruction sheet on the link below.

Would this work in an elder parent room to turn on when getting up to use the bathroom at night and turn off once back in bed?
By Jacob from Pegasus Lighting on April 2, 2015
Answer:If the occupancy sensor is in the same room where the person is sleeping than no I don't think so. Any slight movement would likely turn the lights on while he/she is sleeping. If the sensor is going to be installed in a separate room, e.g. the bathroom, then yes, when the person enters the bathroom the lights would turn on. When the person leaves, the lights would turn off.

Answer:Our electric rates are very high. Some guests have a tendency to leave the lights on. So I installed this switch in our guest bathroom. It is a perfect solution. I hope this helps.

If placed inside a closet with a louvered door, could the motion detector be activated by movement outside the door, through the louvers?
By Jacob from Pegasus Lighting on April 3, 2015
Answer:The door would be sufficient to block out the motion detection.
