I did put in couple motion timing switches in Kitchen and bathrooms. They are perfect until you sit on the toilet and the light shots off.

You use LED's? Just curious if you had any trouble. I went through hell trying to deal with a dimmer and LED's - only certain LED bulbs don't get buzzy as hell fwiw. I had seen some posts online about having the same kinda trouble with timers and motion switches too.

I have all led. Dimmers hate them but the motion sensor switches don't have any issues with them.

Are you using LEDs rated for dimming and LED compatible dimmers?

The issue more than anything is finding dimmers compatible... options are limited if your trying to do smarthome stuff.

Nope. Not paying that much for a switch. I'll just change it over to a regular switch.
