How It Works
The ACP15 uses passive infrared (PIR) detection technology which senses heat and temperature differences to monitor a room for occupancy. A specialized Fresnel lens divides the field of view into sensor zones. After the switch has been manually turned ON, when a person moves within the sensor zone, the sensor detects motion and keeps the lights ON. The lights will remain ON as long as there is motion detected.
The unit will not turn the lights ON automatically when motion is detected. Lights can only be turned ON by manually pressing the push-button. The lights will remain ON as long as the unit detects activity in the sensor zones.
The ACP15 will shut the lights OFF automatically after the space becomes vacant and the delayed OFF time expires. Lights can also be turned OFF manually at any time by pushing the pushbutton. If motion is detected within 30 seconds after the lights have turned OFF (due to absence of motion), the lights will turn back ON. If 30 seconds expires when lights have turned OFF (due to absence of motion), the lights will then have to be turned ON manually.
Wiring this device in a 3-way application offers various different scenarios depending on the size or layout of your room. Areas that may require 3-way control are bathrooms, basements, garages, utility/laundry rooms, hallways, bedrooms, and kitchens. Your sensor may be located in an area that does not cover the entire
room, this could be depending on the way the switch is facing in the room, or the size of the room exceeds the sensors 900 sq ft coverage area. In either instance, a 3-way circuit can improve your range of coverage and control.
ACP15 is designed with an LED locator within the manual push button. Depending on the state of the device this LED will respond accordingly.
