After I complained on Amazon about the switch turning off all of the time while occupied, Leviton offered me another switch to try FREE of charge
and asked me to send the old one back to them with a shipping label.
The new switch works much better! Amazon has them for $30 and Ebay has them for less.
The Leviton ODS10 switch is pictured below with instructions:
There are 3 dials in the center under a pull off plate to make adjustments. Each has 4 positions marked.
adjustment on the left is for 30 seconds at the \ slash and 10, 20 or 30 minutes.
adjustment is in the center if needed. It adjusts PIR sensitivity.
adjustment should be set CCW to the slash if it does not come on and then adjusted upward until the lights come on. The Light adjustment sets the lights On for the current brightness of the room. It may change seasonally due to sunlight.
Above the dials are two adjustment arms that can block the PIR's field of view to prevent activation from either or both sides.Blue wire
goes to the load or lights. It could be black or white as a neutral connection may not exist in a switch box.Green wire
goes to ground wire. The switch circuit will not work without the ground connection!Black wire
goes to the hot wire which is also normally black.DO NOT WIRE THIS SWITCH WHILE THE WIRES ARE HOT!
Doing so may damage the unit if it doesn't get you!Load Ratings:

A red light indicates that a warm body has been detected. I was able to stand still and it still saw me:
There is a button below the indicator light slot that allows a user to manually turn the lights on or off.
The Fresnel lens catches motion as soon as I enter the room. The old one allowed me to walk halfway in before it came on. This one worked like it should!
I just wish I could set the Time off setting a little lower.
It works so well that I don't have to worry about making a motion every 10 seconds anymore. It seems to find me just fine!
On further testing I found that I can turn off the light manually and it will never turn on until I turn it on, but I cannot keep
the light on by manually turning it on. I can probably adjust the Light control to keep it on, but that requires removing the
cover plate, which is not an easy thing to do. There should be a way to keep the lights on while I take a shower without
having to adjust it every time. Well at least I also have a blue LED shower light to help me see...Many thanks to David Keller and Eric Cohen from Leviton for sending me a better motion detector switch!
