Mosso LED Desk Lamp Occupancy sensor is VERY COOL. Lamp comes on when someone enters the room. Small and unobtrusive. Plugs right into lamp arm. Adjustable angles allows ability to fine tune sensitivity. Definitely get this if you are buying the Desk Lamp.

The sensitivity of the sensor is great. It knows as soon as the door to the office is opened. It's really nice to know that I don't need to remember to turn out the lights. However, it does have limited positioning options.
Given the way that the sensor attaches to the lamp, it doesn't allow much flexibility for repositioning. As a result, if you want the occupancy sensor to detect movement any time someone enters the room, it will limit the possible positions in which you can position the lamp.
I'll try to explain. The occupancy sensor plugs in just above the hinge on the lamp, and the sensor can swivel around 360 degrees in a plane. In my situation, this is the only light that I keep on in the office, and I would like for the occupancy sensor to turn it on any time I enter the office. However, in order for that to happen, there is only one position in which I can place the lamp. otherwise, the occupancy sensor doesn't notice any motion until I sit down.
For most, this is probably alright, and it's really not a significant problem, but it is an unfortunate limitation because at first glance, the light seems highly flexible and configurable. Unfortunately, if you want to use the occupancy sensor in a very specific manner, it will implicitly remove some of your configuration options.

The sensor is actually really easy to use, all you have to do is to plug it in and it works. The only bad thing is that, unless you want your lamp to be on during the day, it is better to turn it off the lamp or turn the sensor so that it's pointed at something that doesn't move (e.g., the base) to "disable" it.

This occupancy sensor is good for certain reasons and locations. I find it somewhat useful because it does turn off in the specified amount of time. My problem is that it is located on a lamp by the entry path to the room. Although no one is occupying the seat with the lamp, its' turnoff time is delayed by walking within range of the sensor. The use and effectiveness of this sensor is dependent upon the location and the inhabitants.

Having a motion sensor is an amazing thing for table light, however it is not the best if the table is in the bedroom. As the motion has a sensor distance of about 3m. Which means that in the middle of the night when you move on bed and if your bed is near the table it would turn on. If the sensor can be adjusted the distance of the motion it sense then it would be perfect.
