Yes, the sensor swings on an arc and it has a two second delay. For some reason mine did not shut off, but it is still working now?? I have replaced it of course, but not sure why it failed. It might have gotten jammed when the bike slammed down, but that is what they are designed for, to move under load, so I don;t know :(
