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.

comment How to run flexible metal conduit through wall of attached garage?
Thanks! Why not mount the transfer switch inside? If I mount it inside, I still have to plug the generator into it. I think that means either leaving the connecting door to the garage ajar and running the generator cable through it (noise, maybe some fumes even though I'll wheel the generator out of the garage to run it), or installing some sort of through-wall connectors to get power from the generator to the transfer switch (involving more work than mounting the transfer switch in the garage).
