Cat. No. ODS10-IDx, Designer Wall Switch Occupancy Sensor, is designed to

detect motion from a heat-emitting source (such as a person entering a room) within its field-

of-view (monitored space) and automatically switch lights ON and OFF. The controlled lights

will remain ON until no motion is detected and the scheduled time-delay has expired. Cat.

No. ODS10-IDx is UL listed, CSA certified and conforms to California Title 24 requirements.


The Occupancy Sensor senses motion within its coverage area of 2400 sq. ft. (223.3 m2)

maximum and controls the connected lighting. This is a self-contained device which provides

sensing and light control. The Occupancy Sensor will turn the lights ON when motion is

initially detected, and keep the lights ON for as long as motion is detected. The Occupancy

Sensor uses a small semiconductor heat detector that resides behind a multi-zone optical

lens. This Fresnel lens establishes dozens of zones of detection. The sensor is sensitive to

the heat emitted by the human body. In order to trigger the sensor, the source of heat must

move from one zone of detection to another. The device is most effective in sensing motion

across its field-of-view, and less effective sensing motion towards or away from its field-of-

view (refer to figures 1 and 1A). Keep this in mind when selecting the installation location

(refer to figures 1 and 1A). Note that occupancy sensors respond to rapid changes in

temperature, so care should be taken not to mount the device near a climate control source

(i.e. radiators, air exchanges, and air conditioners). Hot or cold drafts will look like body

motion to the device and will trigger it if the unit is mounted too close. It is recommended

to mount the Occupancy Sensor at least 6 ft. away from then climate control source. The

device can be mounted in a single gang wallbox. In addition, it is also recommended NOT

to mount the Occupancy Sensor directly under a large light source. Large wattage bulbs

(greater than 100W incandescent) give off a lot of heat and switching the bulb causes a

temperature change that can be detected by the device. Mount the Occupancy Sensor at

least 6 ft. away from large bulbs. If it necessary to mount the device closer, lower the wattage

of the bulb directly overhead.

Factory Settings: The Sensor is shipped from the factory to work in almost all situations

without any added adjustments. The "time-out" is factory preset to ten (10) minutes. Refer

to figure 2A.

Blinders: The blinders can narrow the field-of-view of the device to prevent unwanted

activation from traffic in adjacent space. There are two blinders, and each operate

independently. To operate the blinders, use a finger or small screwdriver to move the blinder

adjustment levers toward or away from the center of the device. The blinder levers are found

above the control knobs and below the text 'BLINDERS' on the control panel. With both

levers moved fully towards the center, the field-of-view is narrowed to 32°. With both levers

moved fully away from the center, the field-of-view is at a maximum 180° (refer to figure 2A).

Time-Outs: Cat. No. ODS10-IDx will turn lights ON when motion is detected. When motion

is no longer detected, the Sensor Unit will wait a certain amount of time and then turn the

lights OFF. This wait time is called 'time-out'. The "time-out" is selected from four (4) preset

values. Pointing the arrow at one of the markings on the face chooses the value of time. The

following selections are available:

Face Marking

Value of Time

(/) Slash Mark

30 second fixed time-out used for performing a walk-test.


10 minute time-out


20 minute time-out


30 minute time-out

The "time-out" is factory preset to ten (10) minutes. Refer to figure 2A.

NOTE: All time durations mentioned in the instructions are approximate within 10 seconds.

Ambient Light: The Ambient Light Level is the amount of light present in a room without

any artificial light added. If there is already enough light in a room, the occupant may not

need further artificial light. Cat. No. ODS10-IDx has an adjustment to keep the lights from

turning ON if there is enough light already present. The adjustment should be made when

the ambient light is at the level where artificial light is needed. Follow these steps to make a

more accurate adjustment of the Light Control.

• Do not install this unit to control a receptacle.

• Disconnect power when servicing fixture or changing bulbs.

• Use this device with copper or copper clad wire only.

• Do not touch the surface of the lens. Clean outer surface with a damp cloth only.

• NOTE: Cat. No. ODS10-IDx occupancy sensor is intended to replace a standard light switch.


Ambient Light Setting:

1. With the lights ON, rotate the Time Control fully counter-clockwise (CCW) to set the time-

out to the thirty (30) second test mode (refer to figure 2A).

2. Rotate the Light Control fully CCW.

3. Cover the Sensor Unit with an opaque material, or leave the room and let the Sensor Unit

time-out and turn the lights OFF.

4. Rotate the Light Control clockwise (CW) SLOWLY, until the light turns ON. This is the

setting for the current level of light in the room.

5. Adjustments are finished.

Manual ON Mode: When the light control is in the fully CCW position the lights will never

automatically turn ON. In this mode the lights need to be manually turned ON by the push-

button, and will turn OFF with the absence of motion. If the light control is in the fully CW

position, the lights will turn ON whenever motion is detected, even in full daylight.

Intermediate settings will cause the lights to turn ON only when the ambient light is below

the level selected by the light control.

NOTE: The ambient light in a room will change with the time of day and the season of the


RANGE: To decrease detection range and sensitivity, rotate the knob CCW (refer to figure

2A). The detection range can be adjusted from 100% down to 36%.


NOTE: Cat. No. ODS10-IDx requires a ground connection in order to operate. Use the

ground wire in the electrical box for ground connection. If there is no ground wire, make sure

the electrical box is grounded and attach the ground wire to the box with a screw.

1. Connect wires per appropriate WIRING DIAGRAM as follows (refer to wiring diagrams 1

& 2): BLACK lead to LINE. BLUE lead to LOAD. GREEN lead to GROUND. Twist strands

of each lead tightly and, with circuit conductors, push firmly into the appropriate wire

connector. Screw connector on clockwise making sure that no bare wire shows below the

connector. Secure each wire connector with electrical tape.

2. Carefully position the wires into the wallbox, then mount the Sensor Unit into the wallbox.

3. Secure device using long mounting screws provided.

4. Restore power at circuit breaker or fuse.

NOTE: Allow approximately thirty (30) seconds after power is supplied for warm-up. After

this, the device will turn the lights ON and the LED will blink.

5. Perform the adjustments for the time-out and the light setting (refer to Time Delay and

Ambient Light sections). If necessary, adjust the range control and the blinders to stop any

unwanted activation of the lights.

NOTE: To avoid PERMANENT DAMAGE to the unit, be careful NOT TO OVERTURN the

control knobs or levers when setting Cat. No. ODS10-IDx. The controls can be accessed

by removing the wallplate and control panel cover. Use a small straight blade screwdriver

to adjust knobs and a finger to adjust the blinder levers.

NOTE: DO NOT press in on blinder levers or use excessive force (refer to figures 2 & 2A).

6. Attach the Control Panel cover, and a Decora

INSTALLATION IS COMPLETE. Leave the room and the lights will turn OFF after the

selected time-out expires.


PUSH-BUTTON: Cat. No. ODS10-IDx has a push-button switch that will toggle the lights

(refer to figure 2). If the lights are OFF, the lights will turn ON when the button is pressed,

and remain ON in the presence of motion. In the absence of motion, the Sensor Unit will

time-out and turn the lights OFF. If the lights are ON, the lights will turn OFF when the button

is pressed. The lights will stay OFF regardless of motion detected, until the time-out expires.

After the time-out expires, the lights will turn ON with the next detected motion. This is useful

for slide or film presentations.


• The Motion Indicator LED will blink every 2 seconds while motion is detected.

• In Manual-On mode, the button must be pressed to turn the lights ON. In the absence

of motion, the unit will time-out and turn the lights OFF.

• If Manual-On mode is desired, keep the Light knob in the fully counter-clockwise (CCW)





Wallplate (not included).
