Hello, I have a Fibaro FGMS-001 motion sensor that I am trying to use with Node Red to turn on a light and back off after motion is done. I was following this guide
The problem I’ve encountered is as motion is continually detected it doesn’t repeatedly send the on state. So motion is detected, the switch turns on and starts the 35 second timer, if motion continues to be detected it doesn’t re-send the on to restart the timer so after 35 seconds the switch shuts off even though there is still motion. I’m not sure if I just have something setup wrong with the flow or the motion sensor or if this sensor doesn’t repeatedly send the updates.
If it doesn’t repeatedly send updates I was trying to configure it with a switch node for on/off and when off is sent have it start a 5 minute timer. But if motion is not detected for 30 seconds and it sends off it will start the timer, then motion is detected again a few seconds later it will send the on again but not restart the timer. Is it possible to set this up with this motion sensor or will I need a different sensor that sends the repeated messages as motion continues to be detected? Is there a recommended sensor?
