  • Patent number: 9049755
    Abstract: A user-programmable, motion-activated fixture application having floodlights, a nightlight or wall wash light, and a user-interface having dedicated pushbuttons for time, sensitivity, and timer functionality selection by the user. Two proximity sensors detect the presence of infrared-emitting bodies both in front of and below the sensor housing. An ambient light sensor is employed to determine whether it is presently daytime or nighttime, and to identify transitions between the two. A linear array of display LEDs is shared among the time, sensitivity, and timer switches, showing the current setting selected by the user with as each switch is depressed.
