:newspaper: The Automation Process:

  • Trigger:
    • The trigger sensor is specifically designed to integrate seamlessly with a door contact sensor but you can choose any binary sensors to trigger the automation.
    • When activated, a trigger sensor such as a door contact sensor will turn ON the lights and switches.
  • Light - Switches:
    • Enter any lights or switches that will be activated by the trigger sensor/s.
  • Light Control Options:
    • Utilize “Light Control” to adjust brightness, colour temperature, and transition times.
  • Timer Option:
    • You have the option to use a timer, which determines how long the lights remain ON after the trigger sensor is activated. It will then automatically turn OFF the ‘Lights - Switches’ when the timer expires.
  • Motion Sensor Option:
    • You have the option to use a motion sensor that will reset the timer. If the timer has turned OFF the lights and the trigger remains active, the motion sensor will turn the lights back ON when detecting motion.
  • HA Restart Safeguards:
    • Benefit from built-in safeguards for Home Assistant restarts.
  • Blueprint Integration:
    • Sensor Light - Motion activated lighting. Click Here to learn more.

Q: How do I create a group helper?

A: Please Click Here

FAQ - Creating a Group

When using multiple trigger sensors or motion sensors, it’s advisable to group them together using a group helper. This ensures smoother automation execution and prevents conflicts.


  1. Go to Settings > Devices & Services > click on the “Helpers” tab > click “+ CREATE HELPER” and select “Group”.

  2. Select Binary sensor group.

  3. Then enter a name, in this example we put “Pantry Door Contact Sensor”. Then select your “Members” or entities (all of them that will be in the blueprint automation). Keep “Hide Members” and “All Entities” toggles OFF as shown below. Click submit.

  4. Your done :tada: Now you can use this group helper in your automation.

New blueprint :partying_face: Hope you like it :wink:

For all your closets, pantry, & cupboards, utilize the timer option and select a motion sensor for enhanced functionality. If you’re using my sensor light blueprint, the same motion sensor will keep the lights ON or turn them back ON as needed.

Great automation and darn near perfect for my use case. Is there any chance of adding a nighttime option based on a time range? I have some closets that I want to have a dimmer light during the evening versus during the day.

That would make the automation perfect!

Nice one, glad you like it.

This is something that I would like to have as well. I will put it on the list.
