Questions & Answers
I am wondering if I can trigger this to power off a fan. What if the fan turned off after motion was not detected, and then it came back on?
In response to motion, this device will power up the source it is connected to for 1, 2, 5, 10 minutes or 20 minutes, depending on how you set it up. It's OK to use the fan as long as it has a power consumption no greater than 240 watts. You should only use this unit if you have at least 240 watts of power. When it is used with anything more powerful than that, its risks are likely to be at best modest or even dangerous.
When a sensor unit is mounted, how is it fastened?
Using 3m double-sided tape, I attached the two sides of the paper together. There is also room for a small screw to be used since the back of the unit has a mounting hole.
Can you also plug in a small LED lamp and it will only turn on when the room is reasonably dark, or is there a light sensor?
I don't believe there is. Because this product did not function most of the time as defined by Amazon, I returned it. I could walk right up to the sensor and my attached desk lamp would not turn This product is not recommended for purchase in my opinion!
It works in the dark, right?
There is some change in the range of the sensor when it is dark, so you will have to put your finger closer to the sensor to activate it.

Ghosts react to him! This device tends to start up without much reason, as some others have said
The reviews I read before I purchased said it was probably caused by pats walking past the device, people moving curtains in the breeze, or maybe even changes in air temperature caused by a heating vent.
I installed it in a closed pantry where there is no movement whatsoever. Isn't it true that there wouldn't be any random activations? That's not true! A few days ago it looked great but since then it has started to come on every half an hour. Unfortunately, it can't be used as it is. Although the overall quality of the design was quite nice, it was not functional.

As far as I'm concerned, I like having the sensor Despite no motion being present, the original item I received would continuously trigger all night despite no motion being present (I tested this by covering it with a blanket, and it still did so)
Amazon replaced the defective item with one that works exactly as described after we returned it. This allows you to position it exactly where you want it, so it covers whatever area you need. I appreciate the fact that the sensor is separate from the power supply. Considering the other reviews, it seems that there are a lot of defective units, but some of them also work properly (such as It might be worth a shot to take a gamble and replace if necessary, otherwise there will be a manable one available.

The product is as advertised
The following items are needed computer, UPS, network switch, etc. Under my desk is where there are more. There are a lot of cables under there, and even with the room bright it is still very dark. I always had to use a flashlight if I wanted to mess with the cables (power, USB, network). There is no such thing as a "not" anymore. As a result, I have attached a set of "under cabinet" LED lights to the underside of the desk, with a switch to turn them on detecting motion. Everything works as it should. I put the motion sensor unit in a position that is far enough from my feet under the desk that it does not activate the lights when I'm walking around with my feet in the air The rest of me crawls around under there only when the rest of me is I really like The motion detector is probably worth five stars, but I am going to give it four because of the manufacturer's very poor product description, which is basically an advertisement for their own products and does not add anything original to the story. A description could mention that there is a rotary switch that selects off times of 1, 2, 5, 19, or 20 minutes, and that the off time begins with the first motion and not the second. It might also mention that after motion is detected, the unit is delayed by a couple seconds.

I ordered this item about 6 months ago, but it continued to work as advertised until about a month ago
<extra_id_9>Manufacturer doesn't stand behind their product. I woke up in the middle of the night to discover the unit was always turning on and off without any movement in the room. My contact with the manufacturer through their website was unsuccessful. I sent a text message, but it went unanswered. While the unit performs well when it works, the support from the manufacturer leaves a lot.

In the garage, it is not very versatile
Nothing but a waste of time. Motion detectors such as these cannot be installed on the garage ceiling for detecting movement The only way to use them is to mount them flat against the wall or sit them on a table. You won't be able to use these unless you have outlets everywhere. I went to Menard's and bought a wireless motion detector instead of lights in the garage after 24 hours of lights being left on That was made by GE and had a much larger range and was far more conducive to what we needed Wireless detectors that work with wireless outlets are available, as well as wireless detectors. Our garage is not large enough to store cords that are either too short or too long. You can save your money by buying the wireless motion sensors at Menard's. They are only a couple dollars more but work and are more versatile. If you don't cut the package to get the product out, we'd be happy to return the Westek motion sensor.

The device detects the presence of cat bladders
A corner of our basement is the location where one of our cats started peeing. All we could do was stop her from doing that The litter box is ultraclean, a deterrent spray is placed in the corner, food bribes are given, and cash offers are made. The problem does not seem to have been resolved. A fan was plugged into this gadget, and we placed it in the corner of the defaced wall, setting the timer for four seconds so the fan would cycle. When anything goes toward the corner, the fan will turn on for four seconds. This is true whether the object is a cat or a person trying Fortunately, now that we have adopted our litter box-only cats, they only pee in there. In fact, the detector is so smart that it turns on even when you walk towards the corner without intending to pee. The bladder doesn't trust any of them.

During the first two months, no work will be done
As soon as I bought it in January, I noticed it worked perfectly. It stopped lighting up the room when I entered it two days ago and I thought it had been the light bulb but changed it out and realized the bulb works when plugged into an outlet but not in this device. After two months, I have no use for it due to pass the return period.

This feature automatically turns off again after it is set to a different setting
This is for an el wire sign (and an inside joke between my roommates and me) I made so that it lights up when someone gets into the room. The device is working well and I've had no problems with it so far (I've been using it for This has the option to automatically turn back off after a period of no movement, which I find useful. You can see in the picture I included how the sign is covered with light, and where I have plugged the sign into the motion sensor in the bottom right corner. My doorway sensor is placed in close proximity to the entrance so that it is activated automatically when someone walks through it.
