Window Sensor and Occupancy Sensor perform 2 different functions:
– Window Sensor W1 turns off the air conditioner when a guest opens a window (or a French window, to access a balcony, for example..) thus preventing them from leaving the air conditioner on with the window open.
As soon as the window (or French window) is closed, power will be supplied to the air conditioner again which will then be able to function normally again.
– Occupancy Sensor turns off the air conditioner when the room is empty, after a pre-established time has passed, which can range from 5 minutes up to 60 minutes (to make sure that the guest has not left just for a moment and then returned to the room.. )
The use you want to make of Window Sensor W1 (that is, to turn off the air conditioner when your guests leave the room) is a bit "creative" and is not what the product was designed for since, when the door is closed, Window Sensor W1 will supply electricity to the air conditioner again. At this point it could start again if its electronics are equipped with the "auto start" function.
Please note that Window Sensor W1 function is not to turn off the air conditioner when guests leave the room, but - as already mentioned - to turn off when a window (or French window) is opened, to prevent him from using the air conditioner with the windows open.
