I’ll drip feed some of my testing into this post. I’m mucking around with it now via Tuya app first.
Superficially it initially seemed to work as expected. App says detection times should be instant and away detection should be about a minute. That seemed broadly correct.
I’m pretty sure it detects through walls. I’ve got it in my bedroom with the door closed, and I’m testing by walking into the adjacent bathroom. Consistently triggers a detection. Disappointing. I believe others have experienced this with similar sensors, but I might research that a bit more. There’s no options to dial in sensitivity in the app. Very limited options for anything. Again, disappointing.
I’ll test a bit more and maybe see if I can check out the Tuya MCU datapoints. Maybe there’s some backend easy to set/filter detection sensitivity.
I have received mine yesterday, and they are pretty sensitive. I did find that something strange. i was not in the room and it keept detecting presence for an hour. maybe because i have moved it and disconnected it from the wifi and it was still adjusting… i dont know.
the positives is that this is way more sensitive from a regular motion sensor. Also i have a KNX presence sensor that goes off as soon as i stand still. This one is still detecting motion. while im here typing this.
But yes, Standing still reading a book, it will not detect anyone…
hum… i am here stand still on my laptop, and yes, if i completly stand still after one minute it doenst detect… but that is not realistic. we move our hand and touch our faces and hair… so far for me this is doing a really good job!
