What is the difference between an occupancy sensor and a vacancy sensor?

Adventurer

An occupancy sensor automatically turns the lights or motor load ON when motion is detected within the sensor viewing range and automatically turns the lights/motor load OFF after a designated time elapses when the room is vacant and motion is no longer detected.

 

Vacancy sensors require the user to manually turn ON the lights or motor load.  The sensor will automatically turn lights/motor OFF after a designated time elapses when the room is vacant and motion is no longer detected.
