I recently purchased two Dome Motion Sensors for automating my bedroom lights. I’m using one motion sensor (Motion_Sensor_1), in my room with my Alexa account (Alexa_1). My brother is using the other motion sensor (Motion_Sensor_2) in his room with his Alexa account (Alexa_2). Both motion sensors are connected to the same SmartThings Hub and each of us have our own Samsung account that are members of the Locaiton.
The ability for both of us to enable create routines via Alexa to turn on lights when motion is detected.
When I initially connect the Motion_Sensor_1 to Alexa_1, the routine works as expected and turns on lights when motion is detected. However after connecting Motion_Sensor_2 to Alexa_2, the routine within Alexa_1 no longer works and only the routine in Alexa_2 works.
To trouble shoot, I removed the SmartThings Skill from Alexa_1 and proceeded to reinstall, discover the devices and set up the routine. After doing this the routine worked for Alexa_1 and Motion_Sensor_1 but the routine stopped working for Alexa_2.
The confusing part is that when the routine stops working in either Alexa after installed in the other. You can still seeing motion detected in the Alexa where the routine is no longer working (ie If i go to devices and click on the motion sensor it shows motion detected even thought the routine isn’t triggering).
Has anyone experienced this or know of a workaround?
