Claim of US Patent No. 10,143,066

1. A motion sensor device comprising:a motion sensor configured to detect motion of an object;
a wireless communications device coupled to the motion sensor, wherein the wireless communications device is configured to communicate with a user device over a wireless network to receive motion sensor settings; and
a controller coupled to the motion sensor and the wireless communications device, wherein the controller is further coupled to a 0-10V driver dimming wire, and wherein the controller is configured to:
receive information indicative of a first motion sensor setting from the wireless communications device, wherein the first motion sensor setting indicates a change to a light output level of a light source from a first light output level to a second light output level selected by a user via an application running on the user device;
receive a signal from the motion sensor indicating that motion of the object is detected;
generate a second signal to instruct the light source to operate at the second light output level based on the signal from the motion sensor and the first motion sensor setting; and
transmit the second signal to the light source via the 0-10V driver dimming wire to cause the light source to turn on at the second light output level.
