I have a few Sonoff SNZB-03 motion sensors paired through Phoscon and I set up an automation using HA’s Automation tool, but I have a few questions that I’m hoping someone can help me out with:
Can I create a single automation for turning ON and OFF a light when motion is detected/not detected? At the moment I have 2 separate automations for Motion Detected, and Motion Not Detected which makes my Automations dashboard a bit messy.
The “Turn Off” automation is set to activate after 30 seconds of no motion being detected but what happens is that once it’s triggered, even if I do jumping jacks in front of the sensor, it will not re-trigger the Turn On automation.
I have the Turn On automation set to Mode: Restart and same with the Turn Off automation. I tried Single, I tried Queued but nothing seems to work. Yet the exact same setup with my Hue motion sensors works perfectly fine, I can re-activate the Turn On automation by simply waving my hand, so is it a limitation of the Sonoff sensor?
Is there a way to reduce the “refractory period”, can’t think of a better word, for these units between 2 automation runs?
Is there a way to improve the response time of the sensor? Right now there is a good 1-2 second delay before the lights turn on when motion is detected - again compared to the Hue which is almost instantaneous.
Thanks for any help!
