Question about Leviton Electrical Supplies
it sounds like you may have the switch and the motion sensor wired is series , in which case the motion sensor will only function if the switch is in the on position and give you no way to keep the light in a constant on position. if you where to wire the sensor in parallel with the switch the switch would act as a bypass to the sensor , which sounds to me like what you are trying to achieve .

Unfortunately you cannot use two PR180-1LA's for what you want to do. :-( There is only one correct installation:
One PR180-1LA needs to be installed at the switch box which contains the cable that goes to the light (load). That is a must. One then installs a regular 3-way switch at the switch box which contains the cable with the hot from the breaker (line or source).
If you reverse the sensor location you will need 4 wires between the switches, which is not usual practice, as the bare grounding wire is not permitted to carry current per National Electric Code rules.
If you want a sensor at both locations you need to install a IPP15-1L at the switch box that has the cable going to the light (load). One must then install a IPP0R-1L at the switch box that has the cable with hot from the breaker (line or source).

Switch has 2 black wires. One black is hot wire. One black is wire going to fan. Turn off power. Remove wires from switch and separate. Turn power back on. Using ordinary tester, test each black wire to bare copper ground wire. Only one of the black wires will test hot. The other black wire goes to fan.
Timer black wire connects to black hot
Timer blue wire connects to black wire going to fan
Timer white wire connects to white neutral (in absence of white neutral, connect Timer white wire to bare ground)
Timer green connects to bare ground wire

Tips for a great answer:
1. With power restored and wallplate removed, use your finger or a small screwdriver to adjust the light sensitivity and time settings on the device as follows:
Light Level Adjustment:• Turn the control towards the "+" sign. Lights will turn ON in lighter conditions.• Turn the control towards the "-" sign. Lights will turn ON in less lighting conditions.
Time Selection:• Adjust the time selector to the desired length of time the lights are to remain ON. Lights will remain ON from15 seconds to 15 minutes after the room is vacated.
• Turn the control towards the "+" sign. Lights will remain ON up to 15 minutes.
• Turn the control towards the "-" sign. Lights will remain ON up to 15 seconds.
2. Test that the light level and time selection are as desired. If not, repeat adjustments until satisfied.
