6A at 120V (about 720 Watts) and 3A at 277V (about 830 Watts)

HET06-J - There is no response from the switch after wiring it up?

This device requires proper grounding to work. We recommend that a qualified electrician test the connection for proper grounding.

In-Wall USB Outlet - The USB ports stopped working.

Power cycle the device by turning the circuit breaker Off for about 30 seconds and back On. Be sure to use the device manufacturer’s recommended quality charging cable for the device you are charging.

MPC-50H - Does this have an override feature?

No, there isn’t an override feature to turn off the sensor.

MPP 24 - Does this have a dimmer feature?

This device does not have a dimming feature, it is a power pack that will power any low voltage ceiling sensor.

Sensor Switch - Can I install TopGreener sensor switch horizontally?

For maximum results, the sensor must be properly installed between the height of 4′ to 5′ vertical as it has a 180 degree detection range with a maximum distance of 30′ detection in front of the sensor and 15′ on the sides.

TDHOS5 - Can I set a time delay on the fan ?

Fan control does not have adjustable time delay. Fan will run for 20 mins when humidity is detected or when you manully turn it on. If humidity level is still high after 20 minutes, the fan will pause for 5 minutes and run again for another 20 minutes.

TDHOS5 - How do I program the Light and the Fan?

To enter programming mode, press and hold the Light button for 8 seconds until the light button LED indicator turns solid Green, then follow the instructions for programming. Contact support@topgreener.com for further assistance

TDHOS5 - The humidity does not turn ON my fan?

Humidity sensor might be set to High Humidity, which is a low sensitivity level. Select a higher sensitivity such as setting 2 or setting 1.

The humidity sensor might be in manual (bypass) mode. To return to automatic detection mode, simply turn the fan ON and let it run for 20mins until it turns off. NOTE: Manually turning the fan off will bypass the humidity detection

TDHOS5 - The light LED indicator flashes but the lights are OFF?

User has it in VAC mode, change modes to OCC by pressing and holding both light and fan buttons at the same time for 10-15 seconds until light button LED indicator flashes.

TDHOS5 - What are the humidity settings for TDHOS5

Setting 1: Low Humidity 45%, Setting 2 (Default): Medium humidity 65%, Setting 3: High humidity 80%. For example when humidity level reaches 45% or more the fan will turn on and run for 20 minutes.

TDODS5-120 - How would I know which mode is OCC and VAC?

Press and hold down both Up and Down bottons for 5 seconds, the LED will flash 2 times for VAC and 4 times for OCC.

TDODS5-120 - The instructions say that for 3-way connections, you also need a TDS3K, but I cannot find this on the website,help?

We currently do not have the add on switch TDS3K, it will only work as a single pole sensor switch.

TDOS5-J - I've connected all the wires to the switch but the Light remains ON?

This device requires proper grounding to work. Check whether the LED indicator flashes when there is motion. If there is no activity on the indicator, have your electrician test the Ground wire for proper grounding

TDOS5-J - Why do my lights turn on randomly?

The PIR sensor is trigger by movement of heat so your sensor could possibly be picking up heat from vents or heat radiating from other sources. Adjust the range detection knob to a lower setting (counterclockwise) and if possible, redirect any vents that’s point air in the path of the PIR sensor.

TDOS5-JD - Can I override the sensors's Vacancy feature so that my lights will not turn off automatically?

No, you can’t override the sensor’s shut-off feature but you can manually turn it off.

TDOS5-JD - The switch is keeping my lights always on and I unable to turn it off, help?

This device requires proper grounding to work. Check whether the LED indicator flashes when there is motion. If there is no activity on the indicator, have your electrician test the Ground wire for proper grounding. Verify this switch is being install as a single pole and not a 3-way.

TDOS5-JM - Lights do not turn ON in OCC mode?

The TDOS5-JM is equipped with CDS technology, so the ambient light in the room will effect the triggering of the lights. The CDS sensor will learn your usage habits of how much light is in the room when you turn the lights on or off. To train the sensor, set the device to OCC mode. Then turn On the lights when the room reaches the darkness level that you want the lights to turn On and turn the lights Off at the brightness level that you want the room to be. After a few times of manually turning the lights on and off, the CDS sensor will learn your habits and will automatically run the “learned” settings.

TDOS5-JM - Lights do not turn ON in OCC mode?

Press and Hold the program button for 3 sec, and LED indicator will flash 2 times for VAC or 4 times for OCC.

TGSDS3 - I've noticed my dimmer feels a bit warm, is this nromal?

A dimmer increases or decreases the voltage to the lights, heat is generated can make the dimmer warm. If the dimmer get too hot it maybe due to a overloard and exceeding the maximum load of the dimmer.

You can fine tune the times in the dusk and dawn settings by pushing on the dusk/dawn button while on the home page.

TGT01-H - Can I use this with my old 3-way switch?

You can use your existing 3-way switch, however the wire connections are a little different than the standard 3-way connection. The TGT01-H requires the Hot, Neutral, and Load wires at the same location. You won’t need to pull new wires, however you need to follow our wiring diagram closely.

TGT01-H - I set the Dusk/Dawn time and my light didn't even turn on?

If you pushed the dusk/dawn button from the home screen, that will allow you to adjust the current dusk/dawn times. To use the dusk/dawn times, you still must go into programming and select the days you want the timer to run, then select dusk or dawn when prompted for time.

TGT01-H - Why does the timer require a Neutral?

The TGT01-H timer requires power to operate, so there must be hot and neutral wires.
