Motion-activated Light-brightness

Turn the light on to brightness when motion is detected, depending on the selected time period, different brightness and turn-on time.

This bluprint is designed to turn on the light by the motion sensor, and takes into account that at night you need a dimmer light than during the day, so I created the opportunity to choose the period in which you want to have a different brightness of light other than daytime, as well as the time after which the light should turn off also divided into two periods

This is my first bluprint, so do not judge strictly, and perhaps there is a better option to create this

At the request of people who liked my blueprint, I created a version with the ability to also choose the color temperature, unfortunately I do not have enough knowledge to do all this in one blueprint.

Motion-activated Light-brightness and color or temp and dimmed:

In this blueprint, all the previous functions are combined and the ability to select the transition time is added, the code turned out to be quite voluminous, unfortunately, I could not shorten it, because the variables have a local area of action, if anyone knows how to do this, please prompt

Hi, thanks for creating this blueprint. I am using it and it is working very well.

This is great and works well!! Could you add the option please to select what colour temperature on Night and on Day. As during the day, I want a daylight and at night I’d like a warm white. Would this be possible?

Just saw this blueprint today, very nice. I’m able to use it at a few locations in our house. I have a few locations which the light only needs to be turned on if lux is above a certain value. Could this be incorporated too? If not; no worries, tnx anyhow!

I can do this, but most likely a separate blueprint, I will consider adding this function to this blueprint, if it does not work, then a separate one

Thanks mate, that would be great. Please let me know the outcome either way :slight_smile:

I have already supplemented the theme with a color temperature selection option

Thank for you blueprint! Can you add separate blueprint with brightness and rgb color, instead color temperature?

Thanks for the blueprints, they work really well!
I have updated your blueprint to use lux data, like this when we specify a threshold the light will only turn on if lux level is bellow the threshold:

Hmm…
what about dusk/dawn/night/day & sun set/rise

Time is nice, but it really depends on the season….

Elevation would be working as well :thinking:

Thank so much for this! It works perfectly with my Hue lights - when the stock options for Hue and HAOS didn’t deliver, this did. Well done!

Thanks for your blueprint!
I have one issue with it, my motion sensor has a cooldown period of 180 seconds. If i use the “Wait time day/night” in the blueprint, it adds this delay to the 180 seconds instead of adding it to the trigger time. How do I change this?

Good afternoon, in order not to take into account the cooldown period of the motion sensor, you need to remove these lines from the code

- alias: "Wait until there is no motion from device"
  wait_for_trigger:
    platform: state
    entity_id: !input motion_entity
    from: "on"
    to: "off"

but in this case, you will have problems that if you pass under the sensor during the cooldown period, the light will most likely not turn on

hi there , hassio newbie here :blush:
this automation works beautifully with my tplink bulbs (no rgb, only leds), kudos…
but may I ask if it would be possible to reduce to a defined percentage and not to switch off entirely once the time runs out, would be nice to have very low lights always enabled.

Thanks in advance :slight_smile:

Strangely enough, home assistant reports the light as turned on when this automation runs, but the light doesn’t actually turn on. using the built in automation (core/motion_light.yaml at e06603bbbd02375725dcd3e504dc7eba9d69cc50 · home-assistant/core · GitHub) works fine though. any ideas? I’m using Wyze bulbs

Do your lamps support brightness setting?

I made a blueprint for you with a choice of colors

Hello, thank you for this blueprint, you saved me a lot of time! :+1:

Just one request, could you add “dimming” effect? With the previous Motion-sensor blueprint (the default) the lights are lightening really fancy and my girlfriend loves it.

Tell me what exactly did you mean by the dimming effect? I have added a transition time function, or would you like the light to be dimmed to, for example, 10%? and only after that did it turn off?

Could a human presence sensor version be made?
It only works with PIRs.
Thanks, and congratulations for the work.
