I am new to home-assistant but have managed to get most of my setup working using mainly ikea lights/ sensors and conbee2 stick
I am unable to correctly use automation for turning lights off after no motion detected for 10 minutes
It works fine to turn on when motion detected and turns on the light, but it does not turn off when no motion detected for 10 minutes.
However if i dont put any minutes in the automation it turns off after 2-3 minutes the default ikea timer
My automation file is as follows
- alias: Bathroom motion sensor activated
- alias: Bathroom motion sensor deactivated
any help would be appreciated
Also is there a way to improve/speed up how fast the lights turn on when motion is detected? Sensitivity may be? If yes then how?
I don’t see anything wrong with your automations. Make sure they’re both turned on. Also, the 10 minutes starts when binary_sensor.tradfri_motion_sensor changes to off, not necessarily when motion detection stops. I.e., it depends on how long the sensor takes to change to off once motion is no longer detected. Many, if not most, motion detectors have a minimum “on” time.
