Occupancy sensor

Question

I installed an occupancy light sensor in our restroom today. The sensor works fine but now it also controls my sons room which is next door to the restroom. When I turn the bathroom occupancy sensor off, it turns the lights off in my son’s room. How do I fix this? This wasn’t an issue before when I had the regular light switch in the bathroom so how is it that the bedroom lights are not following the restroom lights?

  1. You broke the connection for the feed to your son’s room. Connect the black wire from your sons room to the hot lead in the bathroom box. Also pig tail off of that to supply the sensor switch, connecting the light for the bathroom to the other side of the sensor switch.
