Z-Wave Automation Entity Reset or Polling Intensity Probleem. Need Help

Hi folks,

I’ve created an automation to turn lights on after motion is detected. I’m using an Aeotec MultiSensor 6.
The burglar entity sensor triggers the automation fine. So when is goes to 8 the lights go on. Only it takes 10 minutes or more to reset to 0. What can I do to makes this reset . less than one minute?

Thanx in advance

Under the Zwave configuration tab, select which node that corresponds with the multisensor. Then under config options I believe it is parameter #3 On Time. You can change the duration that the motion sensor must observe no motion before it will return to the no-motion state.


This is a setting in the multisensor itself. If you are running off battery and you lower it to a minute, you will go through the battery in about a month instead of a year. Are you sure you want to do that?

If you don’t want to chew through batteries, you should wall power it. If you wall power it, the settings change to poll much lower than that. It may be instant reset, I don’t remember to be honest.

I believe the parameter is On Time

I will give it a go and keep you udated

It worked super. Connected to a power wall everythings is fine. Thanks a lot.
