Motion Sensor Switch, NEUTRAL WIRE REQUIRED, PIR Sensor Light Switch with Ambient Light Level Detector
The TOPGREENER TDOS5-M Motion Sensor Switch automatically turns lights and loads ON and OFF according to the motion detected in the room. The programming controls are located under the face cover of the device. There’s a sensor range dial, a time delay dial, and a press-button that changes between Occupancy (OCC) and Vacancy (VAC) modes.
In occupancy mode, lights are automatically turned ON when you enter a room. Then, automatically turned OFF when the room is vacant. Alternatively, vacancy mode requires the light switch to be turned ON manually. Then, it will shut OFF automatically after the room is vacant for a preselected amount of time. This time delay can be easily adjusted from 15 seconds (TEST) to 30 minutes.
In addition to occupancy and vacancy modes, this auto light switch can also control the lighting intelligently with CDS technology. The sensor switch has a built-in ambient light level sensor. This prevents the light from turning ON if there is already enough natural light in the space. The technology is also capable of learning and adapting to user behavior. If the light switch is activated automatically and the user turns it OFF within 15 seconds, the sensor will remember the light level at which the switch was turned OFF and prevent it from turning ON at that level again. This motion-sensing wall switch is ideal for rooms that you enter with your hands full, such as a residential entryway, laundry room, garage, kitchen, or pantry.
The sensor switch will also help you conserve energy by ensuring the light is never left on by mistake. This PIR sensor switch has a 180° field of view and is best suited for spaces up to 1200 square feet. This wall switch requires a neutral wire for installation. Neutral wires are required by modern building codes and are usually present in newer constructions that were built in the 80’s and 90’s. Older constructions generally do NOT have neutral wires. This product is UL listed and includes a one-year warranty.
