Coordinating Claro wall plate and accessories sold separately. Let Lutron Maestro CFL/LED Occupancy Sensing Dimmers turn the lights on and off to your favorite level. It’s a simple, easy, and low cost way to save energy and add light automation to your home. Install a Maestro Occupancy Sensing Dimmer and lights turn on when you enter the room, and then turn off automatically after you leave. The dimmer works just like a Lutron Maestro dimmer, gradually turning lights on and off, allowing your eyes to adjust to the new light level. Use the rocker to adjust the light level for any activity, or set the preset level to ensure lights always turn on to your desired light level. Equipped with ambient light detection, you can customize your sensing dimmer to detect daylight so lights don’t turn on with enough natural light in your room. Keeping the sleek design of the Maestro family, Lutron sensors will match the decor of any room in your home. Install it in the laundry room for added convenience when your hands are full, or in the kids’ rooms and never worry about lights being left on by mistake. Maestro Occupancy Sensing dimmers work with any bulb type, including dimmable CFL's and dimmable LED's. This occupancy sensing dimmer can also be easily programmed to function as a vacancy (manual-on) sensor.

I have a number of Lutron switches and outlets and was eager to try this one with occupancy sensor. It replaced a standard single pole decora switch in the bathroom downstairs that the kids use often...so now no more lights being left on! Installation was a breeze. After switching the power off from the breaker panel, I removed the face plate and single pole switch and disconnected the wires. The back of the Lutron switch has both screw terminals and push-in terminals, and since my solid wires were already cut and stripped to the correct length, all I had to do was push them into the push-in terminals and connect the ground wire. All the hardware is included; wire nuts, screws to mount the switch, and even a jumper wire for a 3-way switch rewire. The face plate, however, is not included. But this wasn't an issue since I was replacing an existing switch. This CL dimmer has a lot more flexibility for installations than I needed for my single pole replacement. But the programming features to customize how long the lights would stay on, the sensitivity, etc. were needed and appreciated. Most important to me was the timeout adjustment which allows you to set it to 1 min, 3 min, 5 min, 15 min or 30 min before the lights turn off after triggered. I set it for 5 min but may adjust it later. Also good to note is that you can customize the settings without having to remove the switch from the wall,and that this switch will work with dimmable CFL or LED bulbs. So far, it has worked very well with the kids. The only knock I have is that the switch doesn't seem to detect motion through a glass shower door, which could be because of the steam. In my installation, the switch faces a small shower with sliding glass doors, and after the timeout period, I had to open the door and wave my hand for it to active again. Anyway, this isn't a major issue since this shower is not used that often.
