Does anyone know if there is an internal occupancy sensor available which is
adjustable to vibration?
We're having a problem with one at the moment. The problem is that the
sensor is mounted on the wall (tiled) of a downstairs shower room. The
shower room is situated in an added extension to the house. When any doors
etc are closed throughout the downstairs of the house with anything other
than a firm hand the sensor activates and switches the lights and fan on in
the shower room. I've tried everything with the sensor to see if this can be
overcome without success. It just seems that the sensor is picking up the
almost nil vibrations in the walls from the door closings and activating
What I'm after is one that can either be adjusted or isn't so sensitive. I
only need it to work when someone enters the shower room.
Any input appreciated.
Here you go, just fitted one and it works great, adjustable time, lux
sensitivity and a manual over-ride. been in place for a week while building
around it with no problems at all.

I had this problem once. It turned out to be that the moulded lens
strip in the detector was acting like a pressure-sensing diaphram. As
it moved, the lens focus changed and the sensed IR pattern appeared to
change. Gluing it in place (silicone) and drilling a big hole in the
case fixed it.
