Motion activated light

Do both triggers have to activate to make this work or can 1 trigger activate the automation?

This isn’t blueprint related. To get a wider audience looking at this please remove the blueprints designation in the top topic.

To help with your question there is only 1 trigger there. changing either entity will trigger it.

Thanks for the reply and information. Second time posting and wasn’t sure which category. Couldn’t find automations only category.

That’s ok. You can add automations as a tag if you want to do that.

It helps if you think about making your automations state driven. What turns off the light?

A lack of movement for a certain time. Not just a time. So don’t use a delay in your automation to turn off the light. Use another trigger. See: Motion activated lights automation

You can add your extra trigger entities and conditions.
