Congregation B’nai Moshe: Installing Motion Sensor Lights
Installing motion sensor lights in our restrooms.
We have found what doesn’t work! See challenges below.
This has been more difficult than we had initially expected. The primary issue is that we need to find “Shabbat friendly” sensors that will allow us to over-ride the sensors and leave in the “on” position on Shabbat and holidays when it is not permitted to turn on lights, even if my motion. Coupled with a 270V electrical requirement than the standard 120v has made finding such a motion sensor quite difficult. What we have found were sensors that required the removal of the switch plate to over-ride the motion sensor. This would be quite a cumbersome project as we are changing 8 switches. We are working diligently with our electrician and think we may have just found a sensor that works.
