What Is A Motion Sensor Switch? While motion sensor switches have been in use for a while but have not yet been incorporated into the majority of home systems. In certain ways, this appears to be an error. In other words, these switches are fantastic and can provide a lot of value in a myriad of applications. They're not a great choice in every other situation however, due to the reasons listed below.
What to do if You Aren't Interested In Using A Motion Sensor Switch: Normally, if you want to avoid any kind of problems with installation, you should install the switch in the same way as. There are times when a technician could make a mistake and not be able to install the switch correctly. In 'll need to learn how to do it. You can make a simple mistake and install the switch without covering the reset switch. If there isn't a plate with ground and power leads, the wires back to the wall could be damaged and you'll have replace the wiring. Do not do it! Keep the wires in place , and then put in your motion sensor switch in the same way you normally would.
How to Do It If You Have An Old Switch And You Still Like It: One method of doing this that avoids any mounting issues is to purchase an older motion sensor switch, remove the cover plate, and stick it to the wall. This works OK with switches that are made of steel or brass (or any other material that is less susceptible to corrosion). This won't work if the switch has aluminium. If the switch is made of plastic or wood (or something else that's less likely to be corroded) then you can simply remove the old cover plate and attach it to the wall.
You can also use screws If You Don't Have Cover Plate If you're not sure what you can do securely, then you might consider using some metal screws to hold the sensor switch in the right place. may have to use a bit of electrical tape to keep the screw in place so that the screw isn't pushed out. If you're not sure how to use screws then you can use electrical tape to cover the screws to allow you to use them if you have to.

How to Make your Motion Sensor Light Switch Automatically On and Off: Once you've installed the sensor switch it's time to put it in the right mode. Your lights can tell when something is in the area by using two modes. The first is activated by movement, and the second by something getting within the way. Normally , your motion sensor switch will sense the movement and light.
Connect your sensors and wires to the new switch. Check it to make sure that it functions as expected. You can then either disconnect the switch that was in use and replace it with the new one or connect the wires and put in your motion sensor switch. Be sure to follow the same steps for how to install the new switch, as you did for the old one.
