The advanced PIR technology is able to sense when anyone enters a room. Detection is possible because of the difference between infrared energy from a human body in motion, and the background space behind it. The lights will switch on as soon as a person is detected, and after a user-specified length of time during which no occupancy is detected, lighting automatically switches off.
In addition, the sensor can also be used with line voltage switches for multilevel lighting.

Thanks to the economical price, low installation cost, and high energy savings, users typically break even and start saving in well under two years.

    Comments about Watt Stopper WS-250 Passive Infrared (PIR) Wall Switch Sensor:

    The only drawbacks I have found are the need for a ground. In the building I manage some of the wiring is just two wire and hard to find good grounds, also if someone times it out manually it wont turn on for the nexst person unless they do it manually also. It has to time out on it's own, some people cannot figure this out. The best is just to leave it alone and let it time out on it's own......
