  • Can replace a standard wall switch controlling an incandescent or magnetic low voltage (MLV) load
  • Requires manual activation to turn on the lights
  • Will automatically turn off lights after a user selectable time delay
  • Incorporates the ability to detect when rooms are only occupied very briefly and shortens the time delay in order to save energy
  • An LED indicates the load status and provides a momentary flash to indicate that motion has been detected

Essential Info

The Cooper Wiring 600W PIR Vacancy Sensor Dimmer Switch uses advanced PIR technology to sense the movement of heat-emitting bodies. The Vacancy Sensor provides Manual-ON/Auto-OFF operation only (Title 24 2008 Compliant). The sensor automatically turns lights off after a space becomes vacant and a preset time delay elapses. Built-in dimmer provides preset full-range dimming of light load. A horizontal dim/bright bar with row of green LEDs provide intuitive control. Both versions provide Single-Pole (single-location) wiring and work with Incandescent and Magnetic Low-voltage lighting load types. All sensors are compatible with any decorator-style or decorator screwless wallplate.

This product is avaialble in: Almond, Black, Gray, Ivory, Light Almond and White, each sold separately.

Additional Feature List
  • Full-range Preset dimming control provided with horizontal dim/bright bar
  • Digital circuitry provides aesthetically pleasing soft-ON/fade OFF that extends bulb life
  • Preset and light level change is easily shown with horizontal row of green LEDs
  • Works with popular load types: Halogen, Incandescent and Magnetic Low-Voltage
  • Single green LED indicates load status, provides locator light in dark and blinks to indicate motion detection
  • LED serves as air-gap switch disconnecting power from load, forcing an OFF condition
  • Push pad design provides minimal travel and crisp actuation
  • Replaces a standard light or fan switch
  • Provides 180 degree field of view and 1000 sq. ft. of major motion coverage
  • Selectable time delay of 5 seconds (test), 5 minutes, 15 minutes and 30 minutes for lights to remain on after room is vacated
  • Walk-in-delay feature allows sensor to turn lights off without time delay when motion is detected briefly in room
  • Vacancy Sensor meets California 2008 Title 24
  • Electrostatic discharge protection
  • No leakage to load in off mode
  • Uniform color matched PIR lens to device housing
  • Color change faceplate kits provide for a simple in field change.
