  • Multiple units can operate as one system, when one unit detects motion all units on same code turn on at the same time
  • Sends and responds to extended X10 "hail acknowledge" 2-way code

Essential Info

Turn all floodlights throughout your house on when any of the motion sensors detect motion. This redesigned Leviton X10 Motion Detector has a feature not available on the X10 PIRs. Multiple units set to the same house code and unit code operate as one system. This is achieved by the fact that these units send the X10 "hail acknowledge" code every 6 seconds while motion is sensed, triggering a two-way response. When these units receive the proper signal, they will all turn on (or reset their timed off if they are already on).

    Have reviewed these twice before, I keep having to buy new ones as they keep failing, don't work well, one in last order would not work out of the box; costy me $10 to return it. Been fighting these for years. Turn on for no reason, can't get them to stay off. Some improvement by using a different channel. Unfortunately I do not know of an alternate.

    works well in concert with other device. does exactly what it says it does.
    DOUG -- prt charlotte, FL   10/16/2011
    Unit failed out of the box!!!
    DANIEL -- litchfield, NH   10/8/2010
    Item is very good but needs more adjustment so it does not activate when it is still light outside.
    ANDREW -- baltimore, MD   1/10/2010
    This is the first time I used this product. We replaced an existing one. The motion detector was easy to install and set up.
    RUSSELL -- white house, TN   11/19/2009
    Haven't had time to install yet. But i have two all ready so i know they will work great!!
    John J. -- henderson, NV   10/24/2009
    I've had two sets of these. I have major trouble with them getting stuck in on mode and I can't get them to reset. Getting ready to try the X10 brand.
    ROBERT -- eastsound, WA   8/14/2008
    Works Great just as advertised. Would recommend using a key chain or similar remote to turn off lignts when they get stuck in the on setting. This avoids the complex resetting procedure described in the instructions.
    STEPHEN -- swedesboro, NJ   3/24/2008
    Works well, I like the fact that the Leviton DHC can turn on more then one light.
    KELLY -- edwardsville, IL   1/9/2008
    Didn't actually use, but the brown color is pretty ugly.
    RON -- hartsville, SC   1/4/2008
    Had to have electricain install and program - he advises documentation unclear and he had to call help line this doubles the cost as it took 1 extra hour to complete
    RICHARD -- west milford, NJ   11/9/2007
    Good item. Replaced existing detector that was damaged. So easy install and set up. Worked right out of the box.
    PAUL -- magnolia, TX   11/2/2007
    This was a replacement for one that quit working. Didn't need to get lamp holders etc, but could not find the repair parts I needed. I have 6 of these on my house and their operation is very erratic; sometimes they work correctly, but most of the time they don't all turn on as they are supposed to.
    LARRY -- middletown, MD   8/1/2007
    This is my sixth unit. They seem to hold up well.
    CHRIS -- penryn, CA   6/20/2007
    Worked as expected. Would have prefered Insteon versions though.
    ED -- raleigh, NC   4/27/2007
    As everything from Smarthome, this product performed as expected, and I am very satisfied.
    LARRY R -- middletown, MD   8/24/2006
    this is the 5th unit. The other five have been in service for almost 10 years.
    PETER -- ellicott city, MD   5/15/2006
    Devices installed without any problems and I like the flexibility they offer.
    CHRIS -- chesapeake, WV   3/29/2006
    Terrific! I purchased two of them and they work superbly together.
    ROBERT -- olympia, WA   10/19/2005
    Devices worked as desired.
