Instructions For Motion Sensor Light Control Switches
A motion sensor light control switch turns on the sunshine in an area once it senses motion. You may override the motion control on the light switch by physically turning the off and on levers. Once the switch senses motion, the sunshine remains on for a specific length of time as determined by the motion switch setting. Install a motion switch in areas similar to hallways, living rooms and bedrooms. Motion sensor light switches are also convenient in the bathroom when you have small children who get up in the evening to make use of the restroom.
Things You may Need
Phillips or slotted screwdriver
Orange wire connectors
Red wire connectors
Single rocker switch wall plate
Turn off the power to your switch box where you intend to install the motion sensor switch.
Twist an orange wire connector onto a black house wire contained in the switch box, connecting it with a black wire on the motion switch. Twist another orange connector onto the remaining black house wire contained in the switch box connecting it to the remaining black wire on the motion switch.
Twist an orange wire connector onto the two white house wires contained in the switch box, connecting them together. Twist a red wire connector onto the two bare copper wires inside the switch box, connecting them to the green wire from the motion switch.
Attach the motion switch to the switch box at the highest and the bottom of the switch with the mounting screws supplied with the switch and a screwdriver.
Slide a slotted screwdriver under the control panel just below the motion sensor on the light switch. Pry the control panel cover off the light switch to expose the motion sensor switch controls. Use a small screwdriver to set the timer to the specified length of time you want the lights to stay on once the switch senses motion.
Set the sunshine level control to the sunshine level sensitivity you desire from dim to bright. This gives you the option of having the motion sensor light come on at any time throughout the day or night or just in the evening. Snap the control panel cover back onto the motion sensor light switch.
Cover the motion switch and electrical box with the one rocker switch wall plate. Turn on the breaker inside the primary panel to provide electricity to the motion switch.
