Using Caséta Wireless Motion Sensors

Lutron Caséta motion sensors are wireless, battery powered, passive infrared (PIR) sensors that automatically control lights via RF communication to compatible dimming or switching devices.
  • These sensors detect the heat from people moving within an area to determine when the space is occupied. The sensors wirelessly transmit commands to associated dimming or switching devices to control the lights.
  • Use freestanding on a flat surface or mount to a wall or corner, perfect for bathrooms, laundry rooms, hallways, garages and more.
  • Sensors combine both convenience and exceptional energy savings along with ease of installation.

Tips: Occupancy Sensor

  • Have Pets?  Pets transmit heat and may activate sensor. It is recommended to disable Auto-On.
  • Using in a bedroom? If placing sensor in bedroom, it is recommended to disable Auto-On.
  • The mounting height of the sensor should be between 6 ft and 8 ft (1.6 m and 2.4 m).
  • Hot objects and moving air currents can affect the performance of the sensor. To promote proper operation, the sensor should be mounted at least 4 ft (1.2 m) away from light bulbs and Heating / Air Conditioning vents.
