SOURCE: how to install leviton 5225 wsp wall

For this combo , the white wires connect to the two silver screws on one side of the combo .The black power wire connects to the screw next to the switch. IF you want to have the receptacle hot all the time then jumper the hot black from the switch screw to the receptacle screw. The screw in the center is for the black wire from any lihghts that you want to control. IF it is the receptacle that you wish to control with this switch .. then the power connects to the screw next to the switch and the center screw jump a wire to the screw next to the receptacle

Replacing a one way light switch with a infrared motion sensor. Sensor has N,L,A connection points. brown to L. blue to N and green to old earth on socket base. What is the A for ? Not working Joh

It is best not to speculate about this - you need to refer to the data sheet for the switch. The passive infrared sensor will require a low voltage for operation which it will derive from the mains (probably) but that would usually require a neutral to be present in some form.

A neutral of sorts could be derived from the circuit through the load, but only while it is switched off) or from the earth connection, which is a practice that is frowned upon.

Having trouble adjusting settings

What kind of problem?

I have the delay adjustment set on "test". It comes on right away but turns off too soon. If the delay it turned to anything but "test", it will not come on immediately. Is this switch defective? I have another for another location but don't want to open the package until I know the answer to this question.

I want to replance a standard wall switch (2 wires: white & black) with a PIR Occupancy Sensor switch

Copy following link for simple walk-thru how to wire occupancy switch

This device is made to replace single-pole switch.
Power to fan: note the horsepower range for device: for example if occupancy switch is rated 1/4 Hp, then it will work for ordinary bath fan. If device is rated for 1/3-1/2 Hp then it is rated for whole-house fan.
Each fan motor will have rating plate showing Hp. Check rating labels for each device.

How do i program a atp1277w light switch

The atp1277 is not a programmable device.
Once the device is installed and wired correctly, then it will automatically sense body heat (infrared heat) when somebody enters smallish room. This is not for large room.
When heat is detected, the light turns ON.
This means the device has to be pointed at the entry door.

The device has an override switch which appears as a small square button on face of device located below the curved sensor screen.

The ATP1277 sensor device replaces any single-pole switch, and can also be wired 'in parallel' so that two of the devices can be installed in a room, and either device will turn light ON.
No Neutral wire is needed. Device has 2 wires. Switch has 2 wires. Replace switch with device, and if the device does not work, then reverse the device wires.

I need to know how to adjust the settings on a Progress Lighting p8681-30 Occupancy switch. Anyone know what the "T", "S", and "A" adjustment screws do?

the first 2 are easy, "T" is for time (duration the light says on), and "S" is for sensitivity. "A" on the other hand would be a hard one without seeing the switch itself, I would take a guess that its to adjust the rooms light when the lights are not on. (say the sun is shining into the room and then it doesn't require turning on the light type of thing).

How would I install the Single pole Motion Sensoring switch

As with any single pole switch; in series.
With no exposed metal surfaces, swapping the 'hot' (black) and the white wires isn't dangerous and if the switch has no third screw for grounding, you can't make a mistake. The sensing circuit of the switch receives voltage from the voltage drop across the switch when off and probably has a small voltage drop when on.
If there is an additional screw visibly connected to a metal plate (possible 'heat sink') that is concealed when the switch is installed, that screw is intended to be connected to any ground wire or terminal in the wall box in which the switch is to be mounted. This may or may not be connected; it isn't important to the switch operation or hazardous to leave it unconnected.
