comment How to override an attic thermostat with a wall switch?
Thank you. Regarding option 1, I was concerned that having the line between the fan and the thermostat go hot might damage the thermostat. I'm glad I don't need to worry about that. Regarding option 2, I need to learn how to use a relay---I don't know this yet.

comment Can I control a 1500-watt electric wall heater with a motion-sensing switch?
Or the Cooper OSW-P – 120/277V PIR, which is also good to 1800 watts.

I think what I want is actually the IPP0R-1FW switch. It appears that it requires a person to turn it on, but it can either by turned off manually or will time out after no motion is detected and turn itself off. Also it doesn't monitor light in the room, so it will work the same in the light and the dark. Hard to tell though--Leviton's search tool is inadequate for the size of their inventory!

That looks about right. Do I have to worry that the wall heater will activate the infrared sensor?

comment Should smoke alarms be on AFCI circuit?
I guess I still don't understand the difference between ground faults and line-to-ground arc faults. Thanks for steering me right, though.
