MELVILLE, N. Y., Dec. 8, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Leviton today announced its new LED Ceiling Occupancy Sensor, expanding its line of Ceiling Lampholders for closets and closed spaces. The device automatically senses movement to turn lights on and features LED lighting, the increasingly preferred alternative to incandescent lamps. The LED Ceiling Occupancy Sensor is ideal for use in closets, as well as basements, attics, storage areas, utility rooms, workrooms and other open spaces in the home.
The LED Ceiling Occupancy Sensor offers a 284-degree field of view and automatically switches lights on when motion is detected and off after three minutes of inactivity. It is made with tough thermoplastic and is easy to install with pigtail leads and mounting holes for multiple box configurations. No wall switch is required. The device is only suitable for indoor use.
"As incandescent lamps continue to phase out, the LED Ceiling Occupancy Sensor offers homeowners a future-proof option for safe, energy-efficient and convenient lighting for closets and other areas throughout the home," said Maureen Munnelly, Leviton product manager.
