Motion Activated Switch that Allows You to Control the Connected Light from More Than One Location

Heath/Zenith SL-6117-WH Motion Sensor Timer 3-Way Wall Switch - White

 

 

 

  • Compatible with incandescent, halogen, compact fluorescent (CFL), fluorescent, LED lighting, and motors up to 1/8 hp
  • Modes include: always off, always on, and motion activated
  • On-time is adjustable from 5 to 30 minutes
  • Photocell allows switch to operate based on existing lighting to save energy

 

Your home’s switches can now be transformed to motion sensing lights. Replace your existing 3-way switches with this PIR sensor and you’ll be able to control your light by simply walking into the room. Having a motion sensor at each end of a hallway or large room makes sure your path is always lit, no matter which direction you are entering from.

When in AUTO mode, the sensor will turn the light on and off based on the detection of motion to ensure lights will only be on while the room is occupied, saving energy. The amount of time the light stays on after it detects motion is adjustable from 5, 10, 20, or 30 minutes. A photocell within the switch also evaluates the current amount of light to determine whether or not the lights should be turned on. If it senses that there is an ample amount of existing light in the room, the switch will not turn on the light, even if it detects motion. You can also easily switch to ON or OFF mode if you don’t want to use the switch as a motion detector by sliding the button located on the front of the switch.

Sylvania SA 500 Wireless Indoor Plug-In Remote Control System, 1,000 Watts

 

 

  • Remote plug-in receiver features a grounded outlet
  • Channel selection dial allows the control of multiple receivers from one transmitter
  • Radio Frequency (RF) offers wireless communication up to 80 feet away
  • Wirelessly communicates through doors, walls, and windows
  • Eliminates wasteful stand-by power

 

The Sylvania Wireless RF Remote Control System is an easy-to-use lighting or appliance control package, which includes one hand-held Transmitter, and one 1,000-Watt / 8-Amp plug-in Receiver. Providing users with the convenience of wireless control, this system can be expanded to control multiple plug-in Receivers all from the same hand-held Transmitter. The hand-held Transmitter features 3-channels or On/Off pairs (Sometimes referred to as a scene or a zone).The control of additional plug-in Receivers can be set for independent or simultaneous operation using these 3-channels. Each channel can control one plug-in Receiver or multiple plug-in Receivers. With the channel selection feature you no longer have to search for an item with the same exact Radio Frequency (RF) or wireless protocol; making the pairing process from Transmitter to Receiver easier than ever, allowing you take charge of your automation.

Using the channel selector on the Receiver and Transmitter, you will match the Receiver to whichever of the 3 On/Off pairs on the Transmitter you choose; this On/Off pair (assuming it has been dialed to the same channel as the Receiver) will now wirelessly switch On or Off the lighting or appliance plugged in to the Receiver. Wireless RF signals used for communication can travel through doors, walls, and windows offering flexibility regarding the placement of the Receiver. Choose any indoor outlet or receptacle, within 80-feet from where you intend to use the Transmitter, for reliable control of the Receiver. The included Receiver can control lighting or appliance loads up to 1,000 Watts or 8 Amps. This kit will save you money by eliminating current drawn from wasteful “stand-by” power, while providing the convenience of wireless lighting and appliance control.

This vacancy sensor will determine whether your Maestro Wireless controlled lighting and/or appliances are needed based on the lack of movement in a room and ambient light levels provided by natural sunlight. Movement is detected by recognizing heat signatures created by people moving across the sensors field of view. This device, when properly programmed, will turn off up to ten Maestro wireless receiving modules when a room is unoccupied for the specified amount of time. Up to three sensors can be programmed to each switch for maximum coverage.

Compatible Lutron wire-in or plug-in, dimmers and relay switches will automatically respond to these wireless, remote sensors via 434MHz Radio Frequency (RF) communication. Information gathered by the photopic sensor is used for transmitted commands, appropriately adjusting lighting levels remotely as daylight increases or decreases. Another common use for this vacancy sensor is to switch On/Off a plug-in (Floor) fans or portable cooling units. As heat from the sun’s light becomes more or less intense throughout the day, your needs to circulate or cool the indoor air will change. Controlling Lights and devices like plug-in fans can and will save money by reducing the amount of wasted energy in your home. Convenience, increased quality of life, energy savings, and simple installation make this Maestro Wireless RF controller a great addition to your Lutron automated lighting and appliance control system.
