what brand switch is this/how to change its settings?

Attached is a photo my the light switch in my office at work. The motion sensor turns the light off after about 3 minutes. Our facilities hasn't gotten back to me on how to adjust the time or disable the motion sensor.

Does any one know how??

That looks more like a dimmer. It is programmable. I don't recognize the brand.
Motion adjustments are probably made at the ceiling.

Yeah, I thought that maybe that strip near the bottom switch was the motion eye but after removing the plate, I realized it wasnt. If facilities doesn't get back to me tomorrow, I will look at sensor in the ceiling tile. Thanks

When my wife was teaching high school math there was a motion detector at the ceiling near the door to turn on the lights. When she was alone and sitting at her desk in a corner diagonally across from the door the sensor would not "see" her and the lights would go out. I rigged up a string from her desk across the ceiling to a piece of paper in the shape of a ghost. Whenever the lights went off she pulled the string and the moving ghost turned the lights back on. When the students asked her what it was she just said "It's a ghost."

P.S. I am a retired facilities manager.
