I’m pretty new to Home Assistant. I just had a few gadgets here and there but now i want to do it all! I have a reasonable budget but not too high.
I set up a Server with a Docker Host with Home Assistant, Mosquitto and Unifi so far.
I really like the Xiaomi Sensors because they’re cheap and seem to work pretty good but i want to have my own ZigBee Base for it.
Regardless BTT. My Question is how the Sensors especially the Aqara ones detect motion. If i sit still on the toilet for 10 mins (happens) and the lights turn of like it is at the moment with my hard wired motion sensors (cuts power to light if there is no motion) it’s pretty stupid. But if i just reach in to the closet in the bathroom to get the window cleaner, boom 15 mins. light on. It’s all LED so the power cost isn’t that much of a problem but it still annoys me.
Is there sth like a presence detection which not only senses motion but for example body heat?
So that it can turn of the lights maybe 5 seconds after i leave the room?
Thanks in Advance
