Occupancy, Vacancy Sensor Wall Switches - Leviton Manufacturing Co. Inc. - Facility Management Product Release
Decora wall switch sensors, available in occupancy sensing and vacancy sensing models, incorporate an LED nightlight in a compact device. The LED nightlight uses a photocell to automatically illuminate a room or area based on ambient light level.
The wall switch occupancy sensor uses passive infrared (PIR) detection technology to switch lights on once occupancy is detected within its field-of-view. This unit will then switch lights off after a user-specified time-off interval.
Once manually switched on, the wall switch vacancy sensor monitors a room or area for occupancy and automatically switches lighting off after a user-specified time-off interval once it no longer detects occupancy.
Both models feature a 180-degree field-of-view with approximately 1,200 feet of coverage. The devices are capable of sensing even slight body movement, according to the company. The units are rated 120/277V, are compatible with electronic and magnetic ballasts, and are designed to fit standard wallboxes. On both units, LED nightlight can be brightened and dimmed according to user-specified preferences. Nightlight function will be activated when ambient light levels drop to less than 1-foot candle and deactivated when the ambient light level exceeds 5-foot candles.
Both units meet UL, cUL and NOM certification and are CEC Title-24 compliant. The units have a limited five-year warranty.
