Motion Sensor Light Switch

Are you looking for a fantastic way to make your home more convenient and energy-efficient?

Say goodbye to fumbling around to reach the light switch when entering a dark laundry room, carrying piles of clothes, and no more electricity waste due to lights accidentally left on by forgetful kids. Embrace the convenience, hands-free lifestyle and a lower electricity bill motion-activated lights bring you by simply replacing your wall switch with a Rayzeek motion sensor light switch in less than 10 minutes. Rayzeek motion sensor switch is available with both 3-wire ground required and 4-wire neutral required type that can be easily installed in the kids’ bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchen areas, laundry rooms, and garages of every house.

Motion Sensor Light Switch Benefits

Convenience & No-Touch

You don’t have to worry about touching any switches – the motion sensor light switch will turn the light auto on when it detects people, keep the light on as long as you stay in the room, and automatically turns the light off after you leave. 

Using a motion-activated light can be amazingly convenient when you are holding loads of stuff and unable to reach a traditional light switch easily. Users won’t have to make an extra effort to always remember to shut off the light for a temporary leave again because the light will be auto turned off when they are not coming back.

Save Energy

Kids love to play around and usually forget to turn off the light, causing unnecessary energy waste. Even adults might leave the lights on carelessly without knowing. Nearly half of people in the US believe the biggest waste of electricity is the lights left on in the home. 

On average, homeowners can save up to 30% on their electricity bills by using motion sensor light switches. The investment of upgrading to motion sensor switches can be returned within two years guaranteed. For its huge energy-saving potential, the occupancy/vacancy motion sensor switch is even required to be used in commercial buildings.

Improve Safety

With a motion sensor light switch, you don’t have to fumble around trying to find a light switch when you’re coming home late at night or need to use the bathroom in the middle of a dark night. The motion-activated light will only turn on to illuminate the environment for navigation at night and auto turn off after you leave the area. 

In addition, motion sensor light switches can also be helpful for people with disabilities, such as kids and elderly people to help them find their way easily in the dark and prevent them from accidents like tripping over or falling down stairs.

Home Usage Scenarios

Occupancy Mode

Occupancy mode automatically turns on/off the light, which is appliable for home applications that demand automatic light on without touching the switch.

For places like the kitchen and hallway where people do not frequently visit, the automatic ON/OFF light would suit perfectly. For places like the laundry room and garage where people would usually visit with hands full, it might be difficult for them to turn on/off the light switch manually. The occupancy mode is perfect for these applications.

Vacancy Mode

Vacancy mode requires the light to be manually turned on and the sensor switch will turn off the light automatically when the room is unoccupied. It’s good for high traffic rooms where the light should only turn on when people actually need it.

A vacancy sensor is usually used in bedrooms, especially kid’s bedrooms, to ensure the light won’t turn on while you are in good sleep and can automatically turn off the light to reduce energy waste when owners leave the room.

Manual ON/OFF Mode

While most motion sensor switches provide a temporary manual override feature, Rayzeek takes it to the next level with manual ON/OFF mode, which acts exactly the same as a regular light switch.

Remember when you are in the bathroom taking a hot bath or in the study having a good read, the light might frequently falsely shut off because the long-distance or minor motion like turning pages cannot effectively trigger the motion detector. With the manual ON/OFF mode, users can keep the light always ON while using and turn to sensor mode right after usage.

No Need to Choose. It’s All in One.

Guide to Motion Sensor Light Switch

First of all, an occupancy sensor is a kind of motion sensor. Any motion-detecting device can be called a motion sensor. An occupancy sensor is one kind of motion sensor that focus on detecting whether the sensitive area is occupied or unoccupied with people, thus controlling the light to turn on or off. Occupancy or vacancy is the sensor mode of how the motion sensor is detecting motion, so technically, they should be called occupancy mode or vacancy mode. They can be called different names when used on various motion-activated devices. When a motion sensor is on occupancy mode, the motion sensor can be called an occupancy sensor for short. When a motion sensor wall switch is on occupancy mode, the motion sensor switch can be called an occupancy sensor, occupancy sensor switch or just a motion sensor switch for short.

Motion sensors use three different kinds of technologies to detect movement: passive infrared(PIR) technology, ultrasonic technology and dual-tech technology which combines both PIR and ultrasonic technology. All three technologies have their pros and cons, while PIR motion sensors are still the most popular and widely used technology with significant advantages such as ultra-durable, being the most inexpensive, and low energy consumption.

All Razyeek motion sensors use PIR motion sensors. For more discussion on these motion sensor technologies, read our definitive guide on occupancy sensors.

Some other main features:

Light Sensor/Daylight Sensing
The light sensor or daylight sensing function allows a motion sensor to detect the ambient light with an integrated photocell. When the feature is enabled, the motion sensor will not turn on the light when there is enough natural light to save electricity in the daytime.

Time Delay

Time delay is the time that keeps the light on after no motion is being detected. This time window can keep the lighting consistent and prevent the motion sensor from falsely turning off the light due to a temporary motion-detecting failure.

Sensor Sensitivity

Sensor sensitivity is how far or how sensitive the motion sensor is able to detect a movement, especially a small motion. High sensitivity is not always good as it can be too sensitive, making the sensor to be able to detect people walking past the room which might falsely turn on the light when no one is in the room.

An occupancy sensor automatically turns the light on when motion is detected, keeps the light on as long as motion is being detected and automatically turns the light off when motion is no longer being detected, meaning the room is unoccupied(vacant). Rayzeek occupancy sensors have both occupancy sensor mode, and vacancy mode included, allowing users to switch sensor mode.
A vacancy sensor requires users to manually turn on the light, the vacancy sensor keeps the light on as long as motion is being detected and automatically turns the light off when motion is no longer being detected, meaning the room is unoccupied(vacant). A vacancy sensor is sometimes called a manual-on occupancy sensor and people might use the term occupancy sensor to indicate vacancy sensor as well. Rayzeek occupancy sensors have both occupancy sensor mode and vacancy mode included, allowing users to switch sensor mode.
Yes, it might. PIR motion sensors detect a movement by measuring the heat emitted from warm bodies. Pets and animals have the possibility to trigger a PIR motion sensor and get registered as a valid motion signal. It’s recommended to adjust your occupancy sensor for the best setting to effectively prevent false triggers from happening.
