    Maestro Occupancy immediately turns off after detecting motion

    I have my Maestro Occupancy Sensor & Dimmer hooked up to my tracklights in the main hallway so whenever I come home, the sensor will detect me and turn on. However, after a few days, when I walk in the door, the light fades on to full and then immediately shuts off. The sensor then fades on back to full again but does not turn off. It doesn't happen every time but more frequent than not.

    Once all the lights are on, the track head light's breaker in the breaker box makes a buzzing noise.

    Do I have a faulty switch? Could I have some kind of incompatibility between the switch and track heads or track lights?

    Thanks!

    What kind of track lights are you dimming? Do you have the manufacturer and model number? This sounds like a compatibility issue. You made need to swap to a switch instead of the dimmer.

    I bought Lightolier products:

    22MC6WH track heads

    Lightolier track parts
    6004nwh
    6006nwh
    6008nwh
    6061wh
    6048nwh
    6050nwh

    Philips LED 6.5w
    Model 929001 1233

    Also, the breaker in the breaker box makes a buzzing noise. Do you know what that means?

    From the spec sheet on the 22MC6 track heads-
    Dimming
    Use only dimmers specifically designed for use with electronic transformers.
    Low voltage fixtures may produce audible sound when dimmed.
    The MSCLOP153M is a forward phase, non-neutral wire dimmer with an occupancy sensor. Dimming ELV would require an ELV dimmer. For this, I would try the MRF26ELV120 Maestro wireless dimmer for ELV. You would then need an LRF2OCR2BPWH ceiling sensor or the wall sensor, paired to the dimmer for the occupancy function.

    Thanks! I have ordered the parts since they weren't readily available in my area and I hope to receive it some time next week. I'll let you know how it goes.
