I have three fluorescent fixtures in my garage, each containing two tubes. I have purchased occupancy sensors at Home Depot for the garage, but they always fail. An electrician told me yesterday that I probably need a commercial grade 15 amp sensor, and he told me to check out Leviton's web site. I did so, but they have so many models, I don't know what is the right one. I'm looking for a 180 degree wall-mounted sensor/switch that can handle the load described above and cover about 500 square feet. Any Leviton model numbers would be appreciated.
Also, I have a regular ceiling light in the pantry controlled by an occupancy switch. However, when I replaced the bulb with a CFL, it would not shut off, but would continuously flicker. The electrician also said Leviton makes sensors designed for CFLs, but he didn't give me a model number. Again, any recommendations appreciated. This is a small room with a double bulb ceiling light, so I imagine a residential grade sensor is sufficient.
Thanks for any advice!
