1. An apparatus for controlling a sensor switch which is adapted to sense a condition of a monitored area, said apparatus comprising:

  • a setting adjustment device, having a setting range adapted to set a parameter, and a setting position at which said setting adjustment device is adapted to output a first bypass signal, said parameter selected from the group consisting of the duration of a delay period during which said sensor switch delays switching from a first output condition to a second output condition after sensing a change in condition of the monitored area, and the sensitivity level at which a detector connected to said setting adjustment device operates; and

    a bypass controller, adapted to control said sensor switch in response to said first bypass signal to maintain said first output condition or said second output condition, irrespective of detection of said change in condition by said sensor switch.
