I believe this is the same price that it was in early September and that sold out fast. From the description: Let Lutron's Maestro Occupancy Sensing Switch turn the lights on and off for you. This 2 pack of Lutron's Maestro Occupancy Sensing Switches is a simple way to save energy and add light automation to any room of your home. Install a Maestro Sensor and lights turn on when you enter the room, and then turn off automatically after you leave. This sensor features XCT Sensing Technology which detects fine motion, such as typing at a desk or reading, ensuring lights do not turn off inadvertently. Equipped with ambient light detection, you can customize your sensor to detect daylight so lights don't turn on with enough natural light in your room.

Any switch that has a locator light or motion detector is going to draw some kind of power. According to the Amazon question answered by the manufacturer, this switch uses 0.04 watts per hour. That is 350 watts per year. Depending on where you live that is still under 10 cents per year. nod

They make switches with adjustable timers. You may want to look into getting one of those or see if there is a way to adjust the timer on the ones you have.

Edit: This switch has 1, 5, 15 and 30 minute settings.

I bought a similar one with a dimmer. Works great...except for the fact that it turns off when I'm in the shower. Not sure how to fix that. lol

Maybe stupid question, but anyone know the idle power draw on these?

I saw a write-up on a different brand talking about how the switch constantly uses power and if it's not used in an area where lights are likely to be left on they waste more power than they save, especially when using LED bulbs.

sounds like it's not an ideal location for a motion switch?

I got this on the last deal. Easy install. I switch off manually when exiting.
You can increase the timeout to maximum (30min) if you don't want to have to wave to switch on. LOL

Yeah, mine has the same. I generally keep it set at 1 minute so it turns off fairly quickly after I leave the bathroom, since it's right off my bedroom. But it would be nice if there was a way to override the sensor temporarily.

Perhaps not. But it's nice to just walk in and have the light go on.

I thought there is. Turn it off manually, then turn it back on. It'll take 5 minutes before it switches off for no motion. Same for switching it off manually, suspends motion based switching on for 5 minutes.

I'm weirded out by something else though.

I bought a few over a period of time, approximately 5 of them work good. But the last batch of 2 I received, don't follow the 5 minutes rule.

I turn them off or back on manually and the timeout period changes from 5 minutes to about 30 seconds on these two units. They turn back on or off if there's motion/ no motion after about 30 seconds. Funny thing is my need for these two is to keep them running for 5 minutes before they turn off.

The previous ones that have a 5 minutes timeout if manually intervened, have a 1 minute timer on them based on my need in those locations.


Sorry if I'm not explaining it right. Help!!
