No. The MS-OPS2 is for single pole applications only. For 3-way applications, you'll need to use an MS-OPS5M sensor with either a companion switch (MA-AS) or a mechanical switch. For applications larger than a 3-way, you'll need to use companion switches in conjunction with the sensor switch.

Thanks, David.
A crucial point is that the Lutron note you linked to talks about a Lutron In-wall Sensor, while we're talking about an Occupancy Sensor Switch, that is, the sensor is buried inside the switch enclosure, with no access to the actual sensor wiring. As you saw, that means is no possibility of putting the SENSORS in parallel.

People normally don't put lighting and outlets on the same breaker, but I bet there will be complaints, and I can even see this product being recalled, if anyone ever installs a MS-OPS2H on a circuit protected by a GFCI. It should instantly pop a GFCI.

Or am I wrong and lighting circuits must be separate from outlet circuits?
